Is Peppertype AI Better than Conversion.ai and ContentBot When It Comes To Short-Form Content?
Written by Joshua Lim
A lot of focus has been given to long-form content in AI writing — and rightfully so, since many of us are aiming to be SEO-heavyweights if they’re not yet already. But how about the ad copy folks? I think they might have been slightly neglected!
Peppertype AI is another GPT-3 tool that can help you generate short-form and long-form content using its AI. This post will be all about what I personally think of the tool and why I like/dislike it.
I will also be comparing examples and the results from these three AI writing tools: Peppertype AI, Conversion.ai (Jarvis), and ContentBot. I’ll be testing out their short-form content.
At the end of this blog, I’ll share with you my own conclusions from my findings. Let’s get started!

To test out the results of the three AI writing tools, I used Vidstep for the input and compared Peppertype AI’s results with what Jarvis and ContentBot got — mainly because currently Jarvis is in my honest opinion still the king of all GPT-3 tools, and ContentBot is a fantastic tool which has loads of short-form options (not to mention unlimited words).

Differences Between the Three AI Writing Tools
While going through the results from Jarvis, ContentBot, and Peppertype, did you notice any subtle differences between the 3?
⚡ That’s right! Both Jarvis and Contentbot only use questions in their outputs while PepperType has a mixture of questions and bold statements.
⚡ If you’re using these tools as inspiration for ad copy (aka the right way) and not copying the text wholesale (aka the wrong way), this will definitely help you move towards the right direction!
Things I Like about Peppertype AI
Overall, there are 4 main things and features I like about Peppertype AI:
They’re not a startup per se. They’re a subsidiary of PepperContent – a decently sized Content Marketplace company. If we get screwed over, it won’t be because they shut down due to a lack of resources.
They have sustainability in mind. The deal limits of 70,000 words (NOT characters) is very decent for short-form (which is what I’m using it for) and you can increase those limits by leaving them reviews on the various platforms. More on that later.
The inputs have “Advanced Options” like “Occasion”, “Promotions”, and “Target Audience”. These are similar to what Jarvis has, except Jarvis only has “Tone” as an advanced option. Not many (if any) other tools have it.
They appear to ‘remember’ your inputs (autofill). If you leave the page and come back, all you have to do is to hover over the product name field and click one of your past input names. The description will autofill depending on which product name field you select. In comparison, Jarvis and Contentbot only remember the last used input fields. There is no autofill/memory feature. This is great for when you have to rewrite something!
What I Don’t Like about Peppertype AI
There seemed to be an initial confusion about the short-form category and the long-form category. One way to mitigate this is to treat everything as limited, which is what I do anyway. No point losing sleep over this in my opinion.
Remember, according to their deal, shortform content = unlimited words.
Meanwhile, Longform content = Limited By No. of Words in the deal terms
** Update: The Peppertype Team had made this clear in one of their statements to avoid confusion.
For clarification of what is considered as short-form and long-form content, refer to the table we shared earlier in this blog.
The PepperType outputs are currently limited to 400-600 characters while Jarvis does around 900-1200 characters. I know OpenAI has placed a 1500 character limit on the total count (both inputs and outputs) so a 180/400 input + 600/400 output still falls WAY below that number (nearly 1/2). I would like to see that limit increased to OpenAI’s limit of 1500 characters per total input/output. Fortunately, it seems like this is up next on their roadmap.
No unlimited words. Just earlier, I literally just said “They’re sustainability-minded”. Even so, because we’re so pampered by other tools, it’s hard NOT to have these sentiments.
Peppertype AI’s Roadmap
Here is Peppertype AI’s roadmap. Be updated with the future changes that’s coming to this GPT-3 tool!
How to Get Extra 50,000 Words (Review Incentives)
- Review on Appsumo (+20,000 Words)
- Review on TrustPilot (+10,000 Words)
- Review on G2 (+10,000 Words)
- Review on Capterra (+10,000 Words)
By leaving a review about Peppertype AI in all of these 4 platforms, you’ll get an additional 50,000 words total on your monthly credit.
Give them an honest review and you’ll get those extra credits. I gave them 4 tacos on Appsumo and 3-4 stars on Capterra & G2 in certain categories and still got the upgrade.
Drop their support an email with the screenshots provided to get it (It might take a couple of days).
For a short and decisive conclusion, I like Peppertype AI more because it constantly gives better results for short-form content compared to some of the other tools mentioned above.
It also has a bit more versatility than the other GPT-3 tools I’ve used (and I’ve used almost all of them).
So for our fellow ad copy folks, you may want to try Peppertype AI to generate ideas and copies that are compelling to your readers, leads, and customers.
