What are recipes?

Recipes are pre-build workflows based on frameworks or processes that allow you to run a series of commands in sequence to generate a desired piece of content in rapid fashion.

Unfortunately, many Jasper users today are barely scratching the surface of how to use recipes to their full potential - or even what they are.

If that’s you? That’s okay. You’re in the right place to learn about recipes. Whether you’re new to Jasper or an existing user and want to take your Jasper skills to the next level, recipes and Boss Mode is the key that you’ve been missing if you want to streamline your workflow and scale up your content production.

Inside the Jasper Bootcamp, you’ll also find a helpful Recipe section that breaks down each aspect of recipes in more detail. I recommend everyone take that bootcamp before beginning with using recipes so you have a solid foundation of Jasper before starting.

Recipes are essentially a series of specific commands strung together that tell Jasper to write a piece of content or at least provide it direction to brainstorm ideas. Recipes use "commands" that you give Jasper to deliver a specific outcome for a project or piece of content.

This could be in a video sales letter, landing page, or a book for a chapter to name a few.

Basically, it’s the specific commands we give Jasper to do a specific thing for example “Write me an intro for a book chapter about {TOPIC}”. Then Jasper will take the information in the content brief and what it already knows from downloading 10% of the internet and the ‘Title’, ‘Keywords’ and ‘Tone of Voice’ you want to use and do exactly what you asked it to: write an intro for a chapter. 

Then you run the following commands and format to build your content out inside your recipe. 

But before you start running commands, you should always start with your Content Brief.

Here's a breakdown of what that is and the process I use and teach for approaching this part of the process. The goal here is to provide a little bit more detail for you to understand the CONTEXT you will be giving Jasper before you begin running the commands in the recipe.

Title

Update your title with what the content is primarily about. What's the topic? Answer that here.

Content Brief Intro

The content brief is the meat and potatoes of how we get the most out of Jasper. It is by far the #1 skill you will need to focus on and master in order to get Jasper to work in the way that you want it to work. It’s the 80/20 of success in Jasper (in my opinion) and you need to practice improving your content brief to unlock the full power of Jasper.

You currently have 600 characters to give Jasper this context on the left side of Boss Mode. Jasper also references up to 3000 characters above when writing, which it builds upon. So the better your outputs, the better the results will build on each other. Spend the extra time nailing these questions for your specific topic, and you can then reuse this content brief over and over again, modifying when it makes sense to update the context and improve the outputs from Jasper.

WHAT?

What is the concept, topic, or idea you want to relate to the reader?

  • The first thing I’d like you to take away from this book is.....
  • The second thing I’d like you to take away from this book is.....
  • The third thing I’d like you to take away from this book is.....

WHERE?

Where does this concept, topic, or idea, apply to your reader?

  • Where are they stuck right now...
  • What are their biggest problems...
  • Where do they want to improve...

WHY?

Why does this matter? Why will they want to read this? What are the main benefits your reader will receive from reading this content?

  • When you finish this content you will achieve...
  • You will then achieve....
  • Then achieve...

WHO?

Who is this content for? If you had to picture your ideal reader, the best person you

want to attract with this content, who would that be?

  • This is for....
  • It also helps...
  • and helps....

WHEN?

  • Is there a concept of time involved?
  • What’s the urgency for them getting this done?
  • Why do they need to read this book right now?

HOW?

How will they achieve this goal? Is your content a complete guide, a 90 day process, a step-by-step, a deep intervention?

  • This content is a....
  • This content contains...
  • This content will teach you....
  • Inside of this content you will learn...

Replace the content with whatever form you are creating. Books, blogs, product descriptions etc. Keep in mind that these prompts will reflect the content you are looking to write. Think of Jasper as a friend sitting across the coffee table from you. You want them to write you something. If you aren’t clear with what you want, they will give you a broad answer, or something in left field entirely. The more specific and focused you can be in directing what you want, the better the chance the outputs from your friend (Jasper in this case) will give you content you can work with, modify/edit, and continue to expand on.

Tone of Voice (Why It Matters)

Tone of Voice is one of the more subtle, yet most impactful, features of the context you provide Jasper. Here you’re adding the tone of voice of how you want Jasper to sound when it’s creating content. This works best with voices that are really prominent online as Jasper pulls from the internet and can reference how certain people’s content comes across if they have enough of it online. Joe Rogan is a fun one to play around with. Oprah, Tim Ferriss, Ben Greenfield. Experts and thought leaders with distinctly different tones can help Jasper match what you’re looking for. When we use it, to write we like to pick a prominent authority in the topic that were writing about. So if we’re writing a motivational book, Tony Robbins or Gary Vaynerchuk might be one of the people we use as a tone of voice. Pairing these celebrities with adjectives can bring Jasper to life. Reference the 101 Tones of Voice section for ideas around what descriptive tones you can also pair with your writing in Jasper.

Keywords

If you’re writing for SEO optimization purposes or if you want Jasper to include any specific words or phrases, add those keywords to the left side of your Boss Mode the area below the content brief.

Pro Tip: Save "Winning" Content

Anytime you find a winning piece of content brief, tone of voice, or title, make sure you save them for reuse later. Often you will update your content brief throughout a recipe, so I usually keep a section set aside near the top of my recipe where I paste these winners for future reference. This will not only save you time creating new content briefs every time for similar projects - but you'll also update and improve it over time so it gets better the more you use it!

How can recipes help you with content creation?

One of the key benefits of recipes is that they allow you to quickly generate content in a variety of formats. By following a set sequence of steps, you can create videos, blogs, or social media posts with relative ease. Additionally, recipes provide a structure for your content that can help you stay on track and ensure that your final product is of high quality.

The truth is creating content can be a time-consuming process, but recipes can help you to be more efficient and produce better results. If you are struggling to come up with new ideas, or if you find that your content is not as good as it could be, consider using recipes to help you improve your workflow.

There are a few different ways to use recipes for content creation. You can either follow an existing recipe, or you can create your own. If you choose to follow an existing recipe, there are many different options available online in your Recipes Dashboard and Jasper Community

If you decide to create your own recipe, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, it is important to start with a clear idea of what you want to create. Once you have a good understanding of your goal, you can begin to put together a sequence of steps that will help you achieve it.

It is also important to consider the format of your content. Will you be creating a video, a blog post, or a social media update? Each requires different types of content and has different requirements. Make sure that your recipe is set up to deliver the type of content you need in the best format possible.

Finally, remember to test your recipe many times over. This will help you to catch any errors and to make sure that the recipe is as effective as possible Once you are confident that your recipe is ready, put it into action and enjoy the results!
