Verdict


Though the Notion AI feature sounds exciting, we're not a fan of their generating the whole blog in one shot. On the contrary, it's suggested you generate AI content in parts for the best results. Why? Well, it's simple. When you generate content at once, your quality dips massively as the AI loses context when creating large pieces of content.

Apart from that, some of their features, including 'Brainstorm Your Ideas, ' sound quite exciting. They feel pretty natural and complement the user on Notion. So, kudos to that!

Having said that, comparing Notion AI with other AI tools that have been here for a while might not be the best idea. For instance, LongShot AI offers more than 50 different features or templates to its users for different use cases, compared to Notion's 13 use cases.

Output Quality Of Content

Content that is well-written and free of errors can be easier to read and comprehend, thus making it more likely for readers to use the AI writer for their writing needs.


The output quality of content for any AI solely depends on the quality of the user input. If the user inputs inaccurate or incomplete data, the AI cannot generate accurate results.

Output Quality Notion AI

Starting as an alpha program, Notion AI's output quality will determine how efficiently it works. Hence we will have to wait until we get feedback from users that are on the waitlist.


This, however, still stands - users need to provide as much detailed and accurate information as possible when using AI to get the best results.

Output Quality LongShot AI

LongShot AI has been operating on multiple AI engines, such as OpenAI GPT-3 and custom AI models. It is intelligent enough to analyze the input and provide the most accurate output despite the minimal context.


It can also learn from its mistakes and continuously improve its outputs with each iteration.

Long Form Content

Notion AI is still a work in progress. The plus it has over LongShot is generating a blog post draft with just a title topic.


Notion AI and LongShot AI can generate extended content, though they differ in their approach; however, LongShot AI stands out by producing remarkable long-form content, surpassing Notion AI's.


It can automatically generate long-form content in minutes, saving marketers time and effort when it comes to creating content.


The platform also offers an intuitive user interface, making it easy to customize the content to fit the specific needs of each project. With LongShot AI, marketers can create engaging content that is sure to attract and engage readers, making it an invaluable asset for any digital marketing strategy.

Personalization

Notion AI is still in its early stages, so there is much work to be done in terms of providing more personalized content. As a result, there is still a great deal of work to be done before Notion AI can truly reach its full potential.


LongShot AI's personalization of content is done through 14 unique niche categories. Each of these categories has a distinct focus, and each offers unique content tailored to the individual user.

Supported Languages

Notion AI is introducing translations into languages. It currently supports English, Korean, Japanese, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese, and Portuguese translations.


However, Notion AI does not support writing in different languages. This means that users can compose documents in one language and then have Notion AI translate them into another language.


LongShot can write content in 8 languages, including Spanish, French, etc. It supports native language processing. This helps the system to better understand the text written in different languages.


Use Case

Notion AI is relatively new to the industry. The demo shows a simple setup process that requires only a few steps to get started. It also has a limited range of commands and features that users can take advantage of.


However, LongShot AI has a more comprehensive set of features that can be used to create highly effective content. It also has an intuitive user interface, which makes it easier to customize campaigns.

Trial

Notion is taking a gradual approach to rolling out Notion AI. With time, they'll be opening up access to more users.


You can sign up for the waitlist now and secure your place on a first-come-first-served basis.


LongShot AI's AI-driven insights help you make the best decisions.

Pricing

The alpha version of Notion AI will be completely free for its users, yet its subsequent versions may come with a price tag.


LongShot AI comes at an economical cost, with monthly plans ranging from $29 to $375! With various pricing plans to meet the needs of any budget, LongShot has something for everyone.
