Two weeks ago, I decided to pay for ChatGPT so I could access the new GPT4 after seeing lots of amazing reviews about it.
I paid for it and named mine Jogs4 (because, you know, Ajogun lol). So I put Jogs4 to use and for the first two days, it was extremely fast. I literally started a niche blog with the help of Jogs4 (will reveal later). It gave me lots of creative ideas, blog topics, and outlines for the blog. However, two days later, Jogs4 started having downtime, which I wasn’t expecting since I paid $20. It also became slow and stopped generating responses halfway through (the free one never did this, by the way).
Thankfully, I discovered Notion AI and decided to pay half the ChatGPT price to experiment with both. The experiment was based on Readability Ease, Accuracy, and Speed. After working with both AI writing tools, I discovered that Notion AI performs better than ChatGPT (GPT 4). Not only is it more affordable, but it is also more efficient and faster.
Notion AI is a user-friendly tool that is easy to navigate, and it offers several features that make it stand out from other AI writing tools. For instance, it has a built-in thesaurus that helps to diversify the vocabulary used in your writing.
Finally, I tested Google Bard, a relatively new AI writing tool. I was impressed with the simplicity of the interface and the accuracy of the predictions. Bard generated responses that were not only accurate but also had a natural flow, making it a perfect tool for content creation. I also noticed that Bard gave me three draft options when I asked a question, which was helpful in refining my content.
As a Google One user, I was able to try Bard for free, making it an even more attractive option. Bard is best suited for writers who want to generate short-form content such as social media posts or product descriptions.
So I did an experiment, I tasked all three to help me make Nigerian puff puff and timed their delivery
ChatGPT (GPT4) used almost 2 minutes to complete it’s writing, but to be fair, it was longer than the rest. I tried same on GPT3.5 and got similar answer way quicker than GPT4 (less than a minute).
TBF, I did notice GPT had actual measurements but GPT3.5 didn’t.
Notion AI was extremely quick and gave an answer in less than 1 minute, no specific measurement like that of GPT4 though. Notion AI also doesn’t show the question you asked, not sure I like that.
Google Bard was actually the fastest, although not as detailed as GPT, they did give extra tips to make sure your puff puff comes out right. I also like the extra two drafts, incase you need more content.
In summary, each AI writing tool has its own unique advantages and disadvantages. ChatGPT is great for generating creative ideas, but it can be slow and unreliable, especially GPT 4. Not worth the price in my opinion. Notion AI is fast and accurate, but it lacks the creative and detailed edge of ChatGPT (GPT4) and it gets your question muddled up after a while (seems like it loses concentration). Bard is simple and accurate, making it a great option for those on a budget (at this time, you may need to be a Google One user). Bard’s feature of providing multiple draft options is also beneficial for content refinement.
While ChatGPT and Bard are great AI writing tools, if you are on a budget, I recommend using the free ChatGPT (GPT3.5) and Bard together, and if you have some $$$ to spare, then definitely, I highly recommend adding Notion AI to the mix
