Write a Factually Accurate Article
Are you looking to write a factually accurate article or blog post with Jasper? Look no more. Follow this workflow, and you will be on your way to creating great content.
Background on Jasper
Jasper is designed to write creatively, not factually. This does not mean that he cannot write a factually accurate article. The underlying AI model that powers Jasper was trained by reading about 10% of the published internet to understand how people write. Jasper has read millions of blog posts, Reddit threads, websites, newspapers, and more. This gives Jasper an unbelievable grasp of imitating the human language and creating content most find exceptional.
For even more context on what Jasper is up to date on, check out the training data in our Bootcamp.
When you see Jasper give you a citation, a random name, a phone number, an email, or even a social media handle, those are what we call filler texts. You will want to replace those with the correct information.
Jasper writes creatively based on patterns he has seen across the internet. Those "facts" NEED to be replaced by you (as the editor) almost all the time. He gives you an idea of what your next piece of content could look like based on what you've already written. So, in essence, they are a pattern for you to go back in and correct the information so that you can add that to your content.
As Jasper continues to write, he will likely make up some facts you'll want to correct, but feeding him with correct information will significantly increase the chances of him writing accurate information. Feed Jasper those facts as you write to ensure that what Jasper is writing about is correct.
The team at Jasper is constantly thinking through workflows to save you time and energy writing content. Your best workflow to write a factually accurate article or blog will follow. If you have a tip or trick to add to this workflow - message us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are all ears!
Step 1: Plan your Content
This should be your first rule of thumb for any content you want to write with Jasper. We find it helpful to think backward. Think through what you would wish your desired outcome for Jasper to produce and work back from that.
Example: I want to write an article about the top 5 best plant-based proteins.
Facts Needed throughout: What is a plant-based protein? What are the top 5 plant-based proteins according to sourced nutritionists, dietitians, and doctors?
Step 2: Research your Facts
Using the thoughts above, make a list of facts that you want to include in your article to plug those in as needed. Try to be as thorough as possible on the front end, and this will save you time and energy while writing with Jasper.
Example: According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, a plant-based diet can provide all the nutritional protein requirements of adults and children.
Tofu: 10 g of protein per ½ cup
Edamame: 8.5 g of protein per ½ cup
Lentils: 8.84 g of protein per ½ cup
Chickpeas: 7.25 g per ½ cup
Peanuts: 20.5 g of protein per ½ cup
Almonds: 16.5 g of protein per ½ cup
Spirulina: contains around 8 g of protein per 2 tablespoons.
Quinoa: Cooked quinoa contains 8 g of protein per cup
Step 3: Create an Outline using Jasper and Write your Content
Now, let's begin writing. To use the Document Editor mentioned below, you must have the Boss Mode plan.
- Open up a new document in Jasper and select "start from scratch."
- Use the Jasper command: "Write a blog post intro paragraph about plant-based protein" and run that command. If you need help with Jasper commands, see this help doc.
- Open up Power Mode in the document editor.
- Use the Blog Post Outline template to create an outline for your article and paste your favorite one into the document. OR - use the outline you've already made. Use this outline as H2's for your blog post or article.
- Use the shortcode *** to separate each blog post paragraph. To learn more about what this shortcode does, see here. This is an optional step. These asterisks will tell Jasper that you do not want him to refer to the content written above. This is usually an excellent addition to your workflow if you're going to "refocus" Jasper on your blog's body paragraph.
- Enter your fact under your H2 for your blog post paragraph, select "compose" (to write the following sentence), and build out your article's body.
- Continue writing with Jasper commands and the compose button to complete your article. Add in your facts as you see fit. If Jasper writes a "fact" that you are not sure about, make sure to double-check those facts inside a reliable source.
- There are sooooo many commands you could try here, don't give up - try commands like:
Answer the question: why are lentils a good source of protein
Write some persuasive bullet points about getting protein from almonds.
Make a list of meals made out of chickpeas.
- Wrap it up with the command, "write a blog post conclusion paragraph about the benefits of plant-based proteins: spirulina, tofu, and almonds."
Jasper can write a factually accurate article when you help him know which facts to include by providing them yourself. We hope this workflow got you off to a good start - if you have any other ideas, tips, and tricks please share them with us inside our Facebook Community. 🤖
