Have you ever thought that Chat-GPT is great but hard to scale across an organization, prompt engineering is complex, and its results are impersonal?

Jasper is an end-to-end copilot that helps marketing teams achieve both speed & performance. As their website states: “Not only faster, but better.” Long story short, it’s a multimodal content creation tool for enterprises.

I used Jasper for some months in 2020, three years before the Chat-GPT era. Given the fact not only that they have survived the “AI Revolution” but they are still one of the most popular AI consumer products, it’s an indication that they doing something correctly. So let’s find that out!


Jasper was founded in January 2020 by Dave Rogenmoser and Chris Hull. Both founders had founded together Proof, backed by YCombinator, batch W18. Although only until 2021 when they moved away from it, to start Jasper.

In September 2023, Dave became chairman, leaving the CEO crown to Timothy Young (Ex-President @Dropbox, Ex-VP @VMware) who has been involved in the company since its inception.

Jasper was one of the early pioneers recognizing the potential of generative AI for content creation. Their initial growth rate before the Chat-GPT era was record-setting for an early-stage SaaS, both in ARR and paying customer count. In October 2022, they raised through Series A $125 million at a $1.5 billion valuation 🔥.

The rise of Chat GPT has of course affected Jasper AI’s market share. In 2022, Jasper had announced 100,000 paying customers, however by October 2023, only 70,000. Chat GPT offers a free plan and a $20 paid version. As a result, Jasper AI was forced to introduce a limited $20 option in response to losing market share to Chat GPT at the start of 2023. However, it’s not available anymore.

It seems that Jasper had a rough 2023. Current active users are not publicly available but VP Sarah McConnell seems to see a brighter future ahead.

Let’s dive into the product analysis, to make our analysis of the product, and predict whether it will last in the market.

Problem Space

Writing good content isn’t easy. It demands considerable time, strong language skills, and the right inspiration. Generative AI has completely changed the game, simplifying the process in many ways. However, using AI tools such as ChatGPT-4 or Gemini can be tricky, and mastering prompt engineering involves a learning curve.

Moreover, the content it produces often sounds too generic, brand-agnostic, or fails to connect with human emotions. It frequently resorts to using grandiose terms like ‘revolutionizing,’ ‘unleashing,’ and ‘leveraging.’ Tailoring these AI models to match your company’s style and tone is not straightforward. Furthermore, sometimes these AI models can be somewhat lazy or disobedient, which can be quite frustrating.

Solution Space

If you’re a large enterprise looking to explore Generative AI with a tool that offers low investment and a minimal learning curve, while still ensuring fast and high-quality content for your company, Jasper is your go-to solution. It’s the perfect choice for creating content that’s infused with company knowledge, hassle-free, and tailored for specific use cases, yet ensures enhanced privacy, security, and consistency. With Jasper, the need for prompt engineering is virtually eliminated, democratizing writing for everyone, including those who may not be fully fluent or accurate in a foreign language (like me 🤓).

This innovative strategy employs both Jasper’s custom models and those developed by leading entities like OpenAI, Google, or Anthropic. This distinctive approach, in my perspective, uniquely positions Jasper in the market, as no other tool currently offers such a bespoke AI model selection process.

  • Performance: This is one of Jasper’s strongest arms, outperforming ChatGPT and Gemini significantly. I would say it’s twice as fast as Chat-GPT & Gemini.
  • User Interface: Currently, it’s only available as a desktop version, which aligns with the primary mode of text generation tasks typically conducted on desktops.
  • Branding & Interface Design: User interface design is top-notch, setting a high standard in the industry.
  • Bugs: Some persistent issues exist, especially with text selection and generation. For example, improving pre-written text initially posed challenges. This aspect requires further refinement.
