    Writesonic promotes itself as the do-it-all content platform. The company doesn’t hesitate to integrate a variety of features to handle many use cases.

    But how does it far against ChatGPT in terms of productivity gains and output quality? 

    From my own experience and observations, here’s a comparative analysis of both tools for content marketers and creators.

    ChatGPT vs Writesonic: comparison of the features

    Let’s start by examining the features of both tools, to see what they both enable you to do. 


    Writesonic is definitely one of the content creation tools offering the widest range of features in the market. Here are the most prominent ones : 

    • Chatsonic: it basically copies the chatbot interface of ChatGPT. You can engage with it to handle any task or application with precise prompts. 
    • Photosonic: you can generate pictures from specific prompts based on Stable Diffusion 2.
    • Audiosonic: you can create voiceover from a written text in multiple languages and tailored voices. 
    • Brand voice and knowledge: Based on an extract, a link, or a document, Writesonic can memorize your brand knowledge and replicate your desired brand tone. 
    • Botsonic: Like custom GPTs, you can even create a personalised bot that can answer your client’s queries or help you generate content tailored to your brand. 
    • AI Article writer: this custom interface enables you to create detailed and knowledgeable, and SEO-optimized articles based on online knowledge. 
    • SEO Optimizer: there is even a tool that measures how much your content is optimized for specific SEO keywords. 
    • Templates: Writesonic also provides you with a tone of templates to streamline many types of content use cases. These pre-made prompting templates enable you to generate Social media captions, ad copies, product descriptions, blog articles, etc…


    ChatGPT serves as the user-friendly chatbot interface for the advanced language models GPT-3.5 and GPT-4. This versatile application supports a wide array of uses, excelling particularly in content creation when leveraged with precise prompts.

    The application boasts several key features:

    • Chat Interface: Engage in conversations with ChatGPT on any topic, and receive informative and coherent responses.
    • Web Browsing Capabilities: Use ChatGPT’s ability to fetch and summarize information from the web via Bing searches, enhancing your content with up-to-date insights.
    • Data Interpreter: Request ChatGPT to perform calculations, generate data visualizations, write code, or create various types of files, streamlining complex tasks.
    • DALL-E Integration: In its premium version, ChatGPT includes access to DALL-E’s image generation features, enabling users to request and refine images to complement their content visually.
    • Custom GPTs: Tailor ChatGPT to your specific needs by setting up custom versions of the tool that adhere to your brand’s voice and knowledge base, offering a personalized experience.

    Which tool is best for your use case? 

    Let’s say that both tools cover a wide range of use cases.

    ChatGPT enables you to produce a wide range of output, as long as you know the right prompts to get the right results. You can generate blog posts, social media posts, product descriptions, landing pages, ad copies… You name it. 

    Besides that, ChatGPT also provides detailed photo generation with DALL-E 3 and customized chatbots with custom GPTs.   

    Writesonic covers the same use cases but with tailor-made and ready-to-use features. Article writers help you create high-quality blog articles, Chatsonic customized voice-over, and Photosonic generate photos. These are all made by Writesonic developers to specifically help non-savvy users produce high-quality AI pieces without prior prompt mastery. 

    Which tool is the most productive for content creation?

    When it comes to content process efficiency and quality, the battle is getting more tense and harder to call. 

    My personal preference has always been ChatGPT. With ChatGPT, you can build your own prompting process without constraints while directly leveraging the most powerful AI model on the market (the latest version of GPT-4). 

    As a result, you can generate high-quality content as long as you know how to apply the right prompt at the right moments. You can customize ChatGPT’s tone and style to your brand guidelines and audience’s expectations. My method is especially to provide it with specific brand guidelines and a well-chosen written sample to get it going. Then I ask it to write the actual content based on an outline or some draft ideas. This helped me implement a content process to create quality pieces at a fast scale. 

    Writesonic is all about ease of use and quick deployment. The AI article writer for example is a great tool for creating high-quality articles in one single click. You only have to give the title of your article and the keyword you want to rank on, and it will scrape the highest-ranking articles to build an SEO-optimized piece of content.  

    Writesonic shines the most by providing these pre-made interfaces for your content use cases. Writesonic has been developing these interfaces for content rephrasing, social media ads, title generation, and e-commerce product descriptions, and their result are interesting. Be wary of using GPT-4 in the paid version, though. The “premium” generation is quite bad, and you’ll get better results with the latest model. 

    What’s my conclusion? The productivity gains will depend on your prompting abilities. If you already handle prompts quite well, you’ll be able to do many things with ChatGPT. Otherwise, if you want fast reliable results, you can leverage Writesonic built-in templates to get compelling results more easily.
