Purchase Jasper Boss Mode Plan
First and foremost, you’ll need access to the long-form assistant template in order to create blog posts with Jasper.
In order to get access to the Jasper long-form assistant template, you’ll have to purchase the Boss Mode plan.
Unfortunately, the long-form editor used for writing blog posts with Jasper is not included in the Starter plan.
If you’re wondering the difference between the Jasper Starter Plan and Boss Mode, here’s a quick rundown:
Jasper Starter Plan:
- Access to 50+ short-form coypwriting templates
- Starts at 20,000 words generated each month
- 600 character lookback – Jasper can read the previous 600 characters of text to determine what to write next
- No access to the Blog Post Assistant template
- No access to Jasper Commands
- No access to Jasper Recipes
- Starts at $29/month
Jasper Boss Mode Plan:
- Access to the Long-Form Assistant template
- Starts at 50,000 words generated each month
- Write AI content up to 5x faster than with the Starter Plan
- 2000-3000 character lookback – Jasper can read the previous 2000-3000 characters of text to determine what to write next whereas you only get 600 characters in the Starter plan.
- Run Jasper Commands – Tell Jasper what to write with a command and then watch him magically create your content. For example, “write an intro paragraph about how to write blog posts with Jasper AI.”
- Access Jasper Recipes – Jasper recipes are predesigned templates with a series of Jasper Commands that allow you to create content even faster.
- Unlocked Compose Button – With the Starter plan, you have to write several words yourself each time you compose new content with Jasper. With Boss Mode, the Compose Button is unlocked which means you can run it over and over again with no human input.
- Starts at $59/month
Once you have signed up for the Jasper Boss Mode plan, you will have officially unlocked access to a tool that will completely change the way you write blog posts forever!
Ready to learn how to write blog posts that rank high using Jasper AI? Let’s do this.
Use Jasper Blog Post Recipe for Faster Writing
If you want to speed up the process of writing your blog post with Jasper, then feel free to use the “Write Epic Blog Posts for WordPress” Jasper Recipe that I created for anyone to use.
In order to use the blog post recipe, do the following:
- Open the recipe
- OPTIONAL: Save the recipe to your account so you can use it over and over
- Hit the ‘Run‘ button which will copy the recipe over to a new document
- Follow the rest of this blog post tutorial which explains everything and will make it really easy to use 🙂
Setup – Create a new blog post workflow
Once you have unlocked access to the Jasper Long-Form Assistant template, choose that template.
After you have chosen the long-form assistant template, you’ll be given two options:
- Start from scratch
- Blog post workflow
For this Jasper blog post tutorial, we are going to choose “Blog post workflow” so we can get our blog post template all set up.
1. Describe the content you want to create
After you have chosen “Blog post workflow,” you’ll get brought to a page where you can set up your Jasper blog post template step-by-step.
The first step here is to describe the blog post content that you want to create.
This step is very important because the quality of the content that you tell Jasper to write will help determine the quality of the output that Jasper writes for your blog post.
Keep in mind that Jasper is your virtual blog post writing assistant. He isn’t going to write your entire blog post for you, word-for-word, without needing any human editing.
You need to guide Jasper so he can help you write better blog posts that are going to rank on Google.
The more you treat Jasper as a tool who you expect to write everything for you, the more you’re going to be disappointed.
The more you treat Jasper as a copywriting assistant who is working alongside you to produce epic blog posts much faster than you usually would, the happier you’ll be.
With that in mind, let’s tell Jasper the type of content we want to create for our blog post.
For example, say we want to write a blog post about “how to make money online with artificial intelligence.”
In the box for “describe the content you want to create,” I would tell Jasper the following:
“Write a blog post about how to make money online with artificial intelligence. The blog post should give tips to entrepreneurs and marketers on how they can generate revenue online using the power of AI (Artificial Intelligence).”
You get 600 characters to work with here, so make them count.
Enter blog post keywords (optional)
After you have told Jasper what type of content you want to create for your blog post, you have the option to enter blog post keywords.
This step is completely optional, so you don’t have to enter keywords if you don’t want to. However, if you want Jasper to use specific keywords more often in your blog post (generally for SEO reasons), then you can enter up to 3 keywords here.
2. Generate Blog Post Title
The next step is to have Jasper generate a blog post title for you. You can always manually enter your own blog post title if you would like as well.
After you have told Jasper the content you want to create and added your optional blog post keywords, you can now generate blog post titles.
Sure, you can create your own title, but ain’t nobody got time for that. Just let Jasper do it! 😉
Click the “Generate ideas” button and Jasper will create several blog post titles for you to choose from in no time at all.
If you don’t like any of the blog post titles Jasper creates, just click the “Generate more ideas” button and Jasper will continue creating blog post titles.
After you have a blog post title that you like, hover over the title and click the button that says “Use this one.”
3. Generate Blog Post Intro Paragraph
Okay, so now you’ve told Jasper what type of blog post content you want him to write and also had Jasper generate a blog post title for you or entered your own.
Now, it’s time to have Jasper write an intro blog post paragraph for you!
Once again, you could write your own blog post intro paragraph… but why not have Jasper do it for you?
Besides, Jasper writes epic blog post intro paragraphs. I write blog posts for a living and Jasper usually creates better intro paragraphs than I can. That’s saying something!
Click on the blue “Generate ideas” button and within seconds Jasper will create three blog post intro paragraphs for you.
Even if you don’t like any of them, you can keep clicking the “Generate more ideas” button and Jasper will continue creating three blog post intro paragraphs at a time until you have one you like.
After you have a blog post intro paragraph that you like, hover over that paragraph and click the button that says “Use this one.”
4. Open Blog Post Editor
Congrats! You now have your entire Jasper blog post template all set up. You’ll see the final box light up that says “Setup is complete.”
Don’t worry if the values you entered for your blog post template are wrong or need to be changed. You can always change those values any time that you’re writing your blog post with Jasper.
All you have to do is click the green “Open editor” button to open the blog post editor and begin writing with Jasper.
5. Generate Blog Post Outline
At this point, Jasper has created a blog post title and a blog post intro paragraph for you.
Now that you have the long-form assistant editor open, the next thing you’ll want to do is create an outline for your blog post.
If you already know what you want your blog post outline to be, great! You can write the general outline of your blog post directly in the editor.
However, if you’re wondering, “Can Jasper create a blog post outline for me?” The answer is of course he can!
How to create a blog post outline with Jasper Boss Mode:
If you purchased Jasper Boss Mode, then creating a blog post outline is extremely easy.
Simply tell Jasper to create a blog outline for your blog post.
So, for example, say the title of your blog post is “7 Easy Ways to Grow Your Online Business.” You would type a Jasper Command such as “Write an outline for a blog post titled 7 Easy Ways to Grow Your Online Business”.
Your Jasper blog post editor would look like this:
Write an outline for a blog post titled 7 Easy Ways to Grow Your Online Business
After that, make sure your cursor is at the end of the command, and then run the command with the shortcut
Cmd + Enter on Mac or
Ctrl + Enter on Windows.
Once you run the Jasper Command, watch as Jasper reads your command and creates a blog outline for your title within seconds.
Here’s what Jasper created for me:
How easy is that?! All you had to do was tell Jasper what to write and he created a blog post outline directly in the long-form editor within seconds.
How to create a blog post outline with Jasper Power Mode:
If you don’t want to use Jasper Commands and want to create an outline using Power Mode, you can still easily create a blog post outline by following the steps below:
- Activate Jasper Power Mode
- Choose the “Blog Post Outline” template
- Enter your blog post title/topic
- Enter the “Tone of Voice” you want to use
- Generate AI content
In 5 simple steps, Jasper will have created several new blog post outlines for you to choose from. Copy the outline that you wish to use and paste it into your blog post editor.
Then, feel free to use the built-in styling in the editor to turn your headings into H2 elements.
At the moment, your Jasper blog post should look something like this:
How to Write Epic Blog Posts With Jasper AI for WordPress [Blog post intro paragraph created by Jasper] Blog Post Heading 1 Blog Post Heading 2 Blog Post Heading 3 Blog Post Heading 4 Blog Post Heading 5
6. Generate Blog Post Conclusion Paragraph
By this point, you should have your blog post title, your blog post intro paragraph, and your blog post outline all written out.
The next thing we’re going to do before we write all of our blog post content is to create a blog post conclusion paragraph.
As luck would have it, Jasper can write your blog post conclusion paragraph for you as well!
Why create the conclusion paragraph before we write all of our content?
Because Jasper can only read the previous 600 characters when using the Starter plan and 2,000-3,000 characters when using Boss Mode. Therefore, since we have our blog post title, intro paragraph, and blog post outline written, Jasper can read all of that and will be able to generate a better conclusion paragraph for you.
If we had our entire blog post written already, Jasper would only be able to read the last 600-2000 characters of your entire blog post and therefore wouldn’t have the best information to write a conclusion paragraph that sums up your blog post well.
Write a conclusion about the above content.
Type out the Jasper Command after your blog post outline and then run the command with
Cmd + Enter on Mac or
Ctrl + Enter on Windows.
Jasper will produce a conclusion paragraph in no time and you’ll be all set!
If you don’t want to use Jasper Commands and want to use Power mode instead, then you can create a blog post conclusion paragraph by doing the following steps:
- Activate Jasper Power Mode
- Choose the “Blog Post Conclusion Paragraph” template
- Enter the main points or outline of your blog post
- Enter the “Call to action”
- Enter the “Tone of voice” you want to use
- Generate AI content
Another idea that should work to have Jasper create a blog post conclusion paragraph for you is to use the proper transition words.
For example, say you have your blog post title, your intro paragraph, and your blog outline. After all that, you could type the transition words “In conclusion,” and then hit the Jasper compose button and Jasper should wrap up your blog post with a conclusion paragraph.
Check out the Jasper transition words section if you need more info.
Your blog post in the Jasper editor should now look like this:

7. Generate Blog Post Content
By this point, Jasper will have helped you create the entire structure for your blog post. You have a blog post title, an intro paragraph, your blog post outline with the appropriate headings, and even a blog post conclusion paragraph.
The very last thing we need to do before moving your Jasper blog post over to WordPress is to actually create the blog post content.
This part can be rather tricky for Jasper beginners, but hopefully, I can make this step a lot easier for you by following some simple Jasper tips and tricks.
If you remember what I said in step 1 of this Jasper blog post tutorial, you should be treating Jasper as your blog post assistant who is someone writing alongside you to help you produce blog posts much faster than you normally would.
If you get to this step and expect Jasper to write 100% of your 3000-word blog post word for word without needing any human editing, you’re going to be disappointed.
There is so much potential to make your blog post even more amazing by adding a human element – humor, personalization, and wit.
With that in mind, let’s go over how to write blog post content with Jasper AI.
On the left-hand side of the long-form editor, you’ll see the blog post template that you created earlier which includes:
- Content description/brief
While you’re writing your blog post with Jasper, you can change any of these pieces any time you’d like.
For example, say you’re writing content for the first section of your blog post and you need to provide Jasper with some more context to help him write specifically about a certain topic. You can change your blog post content section to keep Jasper on track.
Also, do you see the toggles for each of the blog post template sections? You can switch these toggles on or off. If the toggle is switched off, Jasper will no longer “read” that content when he’s producing AI content. If the toggle is switched on, Jasper will have that information loaded up and it will help shape the content he writes.
How to Write Blog Post Content With Jasper Boss Mode:
Since you are using Jasper Boss Mode, you’re going to be able to create blog post content up to 5x faster than with the Starter plan.
Since Boss Mode unlocks the ability to use Jasper Commands, you can now take your current blog post structure and add the highlighted lines.
How to Write Epic Blog Posts With Jasper AI for WordPress [Blog post intro paragraph created by Jasper] Blog Post Heading 1 Write an intro paragraph for the above heading. *** Blog Post Heading 2 Write an intro paragraph for the above heading. *** Blog Post Heading 3 Write an intro paragraph for the above heading. [Blog post conclusion paragraph created by Jasper]
Your blog post should look something like this:
Here’s where you’re going to learn a Jasper shortcode.
Using three asterisks in a row (***) tells Jasper to not read any other content before the three asterisks.
PRO TIP: If you’re running into issues where Jasper is duplicating content or repeating himself, try adding three asterisks before a heading and focusing solely on that heading and that section.
You don’t have to use the three asterisks if you don’t want, and I’d even suggest playing around with using them and not using them.
I generally have seen better results when I add the three asterisks before headings because Jasper can only focus on talking about that heading without repeating anything.
Jasper already knows your blog post title and what your blog post content should be about using the sidebar template information from before. Therefore, Jasper still has plenty of context to know what to write about.
You can also make the highlighted Jasper Commands whatever you would like. If you don’t want Jasper to write an intro paragraph for your headings, you could tell him to make a bulleted list or guide him in whatever way you would like.
Check out the Jasper Commands section for some more ideas on example Jasper Commands to run to create better blog posts.
Run the Jasper Commands that you wrote after each of your blog post headings and begin producing content!
How to Write Blog Post Content without Jasper Commands:
If you don’t want to use Jasper Commands to tell Jasper what to write, you can still easily create excellent blog post content by letting Jasper compose words for you.
With your cursor placed under each heading, simply hit the Jasper Compose button (
Cmd + J on Mac or
Ctrl + J on Windows) and Jasper will begin composing blog post content about the above heading.
PRO TIP: Using transition words and sentences is the key to getting Jasper to write what you want. Check out the Jasper transition words section for more info.
Once you have enough content written for your first blog post heading, use the same steps to create content for the rest of your blog post headings.
Lastly, once you have enough blog post content written for each heading, you’ll want to add some finishing touches to your blog post to make it perfect:
- Remove any Jasper shortcodes (for example, the three asterisks shortcode).
- Fact check any information that Jasper created that you aren’t sure about and correct anything that is wrong.
- Add your own spin on the blog post content by adding human element – humor, wit, and personalization.
Do NOT skip these last steps above as they are very important!
The very last thing we’re going to do before moving our Jasper blog post to WordPress is to check our grammar.
8. Check Your Grammar
Woohoo! You have completed writing your entire blog post in the Jasper editor.
Before we move on, we want to make sure that there aren’t obvious grammar mistakes.
Don’t worry – the team over at Jasper.ai has you covered!
They have integrated the free version of Grammarly directly into the Jasper long-form assistant.
How to use Grammarly in the Jasper AI long-form assistant?
- Enable Grammarly
- Check for spelling/grammar suggestions
The free version of Grammarly is excellent and helps point out obvious spelling or grammar mistakes that you (or Jasper) may have made while writing your blog post.
Although the free version of Grammarly is excellent, I personally upgraded to use Grammarly Premium and use the Chrome extension.
If you decide to use the Chrome extension to run Grammarly, it will simply override the built-in Grammarly function within the Jasper editor and everything will work as normal.
Once the extension is added to your browser, make sure that Grammarly is set to run within the Jasper AI application.
Click on the Grammarly extension in the extension bar and make sure the toggle is “ON” that says “Check for writing suggestions on app.jasper.ai“.
If you want to improve your blog post content even further, then Grammarly Premium is the way to go.
Grammarly Premium offers over 400 various checks, finds grammatical errors, enhances your vocabulary usage, provides citation suggestions, and the cherry on top for Jasper users… it detects plagiarism.
Even though Jasper writes 99.99% original content, it always helps to have a plagiarism checker verify that your Jasper blog post is original.
By upgrading to Grammarly Premium, you’ll have all the best writing suggestions along with a plagiarism checker directly in the Jasper editor. How sweet is that?!
Read through your blog post and correct any Grammarly suggestions (if applicable) and then you’re done.
Congratulations! Your Jasper blog post is officially complete and it’s time to move it to WordPress.
9. Move to WordPress
Whoa! You just finished writing an entire blog post using the AI power of Jasper. How does it feel?!
You now have your entire blog post written in the Jasper blog post editor and it’s time to move your blog post to WordPress.
Create a new blog post in WordPress and give it the same title as your Jasper blog post.
Then, you can simply copy the entire blog post content from the Jasper editor and paste it into the Gutenberg editor which is the built-in WordPress editor.
The Jasper.ai team has announced that they are working on a feature to easily export your Jasper blog post directly into WordPress with one click which will make this step even easier. There is even a Chrome extension coming that would allow you to use Jasper to create content directly in the WordPress editor!
10. Add Images
Now that you have all of your blog post content from Jasper pasted into WordPress, it’s time to add some images which will majorly help with SEO to get your blog post ranking high on Google.
Even though you can add images within the Jasper long-form assistant, I personally would recommend waiting until your blog post is in WordPress before adding images to it.
Why? Because WordPress makes it much easier to compress your images and add “alt” text for better SEO.
There isn’t a “magical” number of images that you should add to your blog post, but I always like to add images where it feels appropriate.
Don’t just stuff a bunch of images in your blog post for no reason.
I always like to start blog posts with a featured image (as you can see near the top of this post) and I would recommend you do the same.
Then, insert images throughout your blog post where it makes sense.
Here are a few tips for using images in WordPress which will help your page load fast and also help with your SEO:
- Change the file name of the image to describe what the image is about. For example, rather than “IMG_2055.jpg,” a better name would be “jasper-sitting-at-a-desk.jpg.”
- Before you upload the image to WordPress, make sure it’s the appropriate size. Figure out how large of an area your image will be in. For example, my blog post content is around 800px across. Therefore, you would resize your image to be 800px wide (or 1600px if you want your image to be retina-ready for screens like MacBooks). This will ensure your image is as small as possible without losing quality from being too small.
- When you add the image to WordPress, make sure to fill out the “Alt text” with something descriptive, similar to the filename. If someone asked you “What is this a picture of?”, then describe the image as best as possible while also including your keyword (if it naturally fits in there).
- Use an image optimization plugin such as ShortPixel to compress and convert your image into WebP format if you need to.
11. Analyze Blog Post With RankMath
The last thing we’re going to do is make sure your blog post is SEO-optimized so that you have a higher chance of ranking higher on Google which means more traffic and more revenue being generated!
For this, I would highly suggest the RankMath SEO WordPress plugin. It offers more free features than any other SEO plugin and RankMath Pro unlocks even more premium features to give you an even bigger edge over your competition.
Once you have RankMath installed and activated on your website, you will see an SEO score in the upper-right of your Gutenberg editor which tells you how well your post is optimized for the focus keyword of your choosing.
So, say your keyword is “make money online.” You would plug that into RankMath as your focus keyword and then you’ll see a checklist of items that will help make your blog post more SEO-optimized.
One thing to keep in mind is that the RankMath SEO suggestions are exactly that – suggestions. They do not guarantee that your blog post will rank high on Google.
You should be writing your blog posts for humans, not for machines.
I’ve had some blog posts that had a poor SEO score on RankMath but were ranking #1 on Google and I have some blog posts that rank a 95/100 on RankMath that don’t hit the front page of Google.
Needless to say, RankMath will certainly give you some excellent suggestions that should help boost your Jasper blog post ranking on Google.
12. Publish Your Blog Post
You’re all done! With your Jasper blog post copied over to WordPress and all SEO-optimized by using RankMath, you’re ready to publish your blog post.
Hit the blue “Publish” button in the upper-right corner of your Gutenberg editor. WordPress will run some pre-publish checks and then you can confirm that you want to publish your post.
Congratulations! You did it!
From my experience, it usually takes anywhere from 2-4 weeks after publishing a blog post to start seeing it rank on Google.
Once again, you are not guaranteed to rank on the first page of Google. However, if you followed all the steps in this post to create high-quality content with Jasper and made sure it was SEO-optimized with RankMath, your chances of ranking on the first page of Google are much higher.
Jasper Blog Post Tips and Tricks
Here’s a list of Jasper tips and tricks to make writing your blog posts with Jasper even faster!
- *** – Using three asterisks in a row within the Jasper blog post editor tells Jasper to not read any content before those three asterisks. This will help prevent Jasper from generating duplicate content.
Jasper Keyboard Shortcuts
- Command + Enter: Run a Jasper Command. (Your cursor needs to be at the end of the command when you run it.)
- Command + Shift + Enter: Run Jasper Command and keep the Jasper Command visible on the page after running it.
- Command + K: See Jasper Command history so you can re-run previous commands.
- Command + J: Compose. Jasper will compose output based on the length you have chosen in the editor.
- Command + /: Re-run the last command. For example, say you compose some output and you don’t like it. You can use this command to have Jasper delete the content and generate new content.
- Command + Z: Undo.
These Jasper keyboard shortcuts are for Mac users. If you’re using Windows, replace ‘Command‘ with ‘Control.’
In order to use Jasper Commands in the long-form assistant template, you will need to activate Boss Mode on your account.
Jasper Commands allow you to become the boss of Jasper and tell Jasper what you would like him to write.
Jasper is constantly learning new Jasper Commands and gets better at understanding what you want to create each day.
Although there is a massive amount of Jasper Commands that Jasper would understand, here’s a list of Jasper Commands that are excellent for how to create blog posts with Jasper:
- Write some blog post titles about [topic].
- Write a content brief about [topic or title].
- Write a blog outline for a blog post titled [blog post title].
- Write some FAQs about [blog post topic].
- Answer the question “[How much protein should I eat per day?]”.
- Write a blog post intro for the above.
- Make a list of [topic]. (ex. Make a list of auto manufacturers)
- Write a conclusion paragraph about the above content.
These are taken from the Jasper documentation available directly to you in the blog post editor.
In order to run a Jasper Command, all you have to do is type out the command, make sure your cursor is at the end of the command, and then use the keyboard shortcut
Cmd + Enter to run it on a Mac or
Ctrl + Enter to run it on Windows.
Jasper Transition Words
Using transition words is the key to getting Jasper to generate the type of content that you want.
Imagine that you are the captain of the ship called the USS Jasper. If you aren’t at the helm of the boat helping to steer it, chances are the ship is going to go off course which can happen when Jasper generates a lot of content.
However, if you know how to guide Jasper, the AI-generated output he produces can be much higher quality.
You can do this by using transition words to help steer Jasper in the right direction.
Some Jasper transition words would include the following:
- First of all…
- As a matter of fact…
- In other words…
- For example…
- In my experience…
- Some of the main benefits of [topic] are…
- Another example of [topic] is…
- In conclusion…
- To summarize my point…
Using transition words when writing blog posts with Jasper is going to drastically help your blog post flow much better and keep Jasper on track rather than getting off course and producing a bunch of garbage and jibberish.
If there’s something specific that you want Jasper to talk about, you can be even more specific with your transitions.
For example, “Even though [benefit 1] is very important when considering [topic], [benefit 2] can also help greatly by…” and then hit the “Compose” button and watch as Jasper produces excellent output related to the transition sentence you just used.
That’s a wrap, folks! I hope this article helped you learn how to write blog posts with Jasper AI that are SEO-optimized and will rank high on Google.
Once you learn how to use Jasper to write blog posts, you will be able to produce blog posts anywhere from 2-5x faster than you were before you started using Jasper AI.
Imagine how quickly you’d be able to scale your business when you have an AI robot such as Jasper as your blog post assistant!
