Wordbotic Users: how is it working so far?

by Art Turner 73 replies
If you've bought Wordbotic, could you share here about the results you're getting? Are you happy with the output? Do different topics produce different results, or is each book pretty much the same except for the bits that you typed in?

Thanks!

    Art,

    I bought both Wordbotic ($17) and Outline Master ($11).

    Some of the things I'll say below might come off as negative so let me say from the start, I am happy with my purchase.

    However, to answer your question the two articles (I bought the lite version that only produces 1500 words at a time) I've created so far have been very similar except for my input. Keep in mind however this is the beta version and "coming soon" more templates which should solve this problem.

    Earlier today I ran the first raw article through copyscape and it passed with flying colors.

    This evening I created another article and and it came up 48% duplicate comparing to only one other site. It appears sometime today someone got the software, did an article and used it as is. After that I ran my tweaked article through copyscape and it passed with no problem, as I was certain it would because I put my human touch and heart into it. (to paraphrase the software owner) It really was MY article now.

    That's perfectly OK with me because I never use any article as is.

    I have no problem coming up with something to write about, my problem is getting started so what I've done in the past is go to a writing service and order what I call seed articles for my ebooks. I use those seed articles as a frame to flesh out and create my finished product.

    I'll never have to buy another seed article because this software does a good job of generating seed content for me.

    To the software owner's credit, she says on her site something to the effect, "These ebooks won't have the "heart" of the human touch," and she is correct.

    If you are looking for completed, quality reports and ebooks out the door you will probably ask for a refund. However, if you are looking for something that you can tweak and give heart to then you will be happy with this product as I am.

    About Outline Master. It does just what it claims to do. You input a few words and phrases and it spits out a very nice outline. I also like this product very much. This too will create "seeds" for my articles and ebooks on it's own. So for $28 I'll save several hundred dollars this year alone.

    One more thing to keep in mind. Wordbotic is in beta at an opening price of only $17 (one time payment) and you own it for as long as the product is available. When a few bugs are ironed out and more templates are added it's going to be on a monthly subscription. I'm willing to bet that the future Wordbotic is going to be so awesome that I'll never regret my low $17 purchase.

    For the record I'm not an affiliate of this product.

    Hope this helps,

      I took a slight detour as I had missed seeing the Wordbotic so I followed the link above and got the Outline Master and the Writing Tool; posted a happy-puppy review here, then deleted it; now reposting (and if I sound a bit like Vicky Pollard from Little Britain (yeahbutnobutyeah with an East-European accent), blame it on the weather.

      So, the experience with the Outline + Writing tool first. I must say, I am very impressed; it bullies you into writing more and more, one sentence at a time, and you do get a kick when you see the result and go, like, "Wow, did I just write all this?!" It is a life-saver, if you get frequent writer blocks, and a must-have for master procrastinators. I think it will even help me finish my dissertation!

      It even works with other languages; this is good for me, personally, because in my work I often have to switch between 3-4 languages in a day, and produce consistent content in those languages; and that is intellectually and even emotionally draining sometimes as you have to switch to a different personality for the different language copy. I think this tool can help making the switch less painful.

      But, undoubtedly, the best part is that it keeps me going - whereas without it, I'd have got sidetracked. For example, a common stumbling block for me is when I start writing, all is fine and dandy until I get some stray idea about, say, I need some extra info, or a quote, or an image (for a presentation). Then I start researching, and... the paper never gets finished until it is deadline time. With this tool, I just kept on writing, and when I felt the urge to research, I just added an asterisk, or a note. Of course, disciplined folks do this without the need for a crutch but for people like me it is really helpful.

      Of course, you won't become the next J.K. Rowling but maybe you can be the next Jamie Oliver? the next Dr Pierre Dukan? the next Dale Carnegie? In a nutshell, this fun tool will not put words into your mouth but it will help you say what is in your head. Once you see the beautiful text roll out, you will feel enthusiastic to tweak it until you get the masterpiece you can be proud of.

      So, on to the Wordbotic. I got the Lite(st) version, and diligently went through the motions. Well, a bit disappointed. I am glad I didn't get the whole book version. I am not sure it is worth spending time to use the tool in order to produce a 1500 article that you will spend at least 1 hour on tweaking later. It might be easier to rewrite it completely.

      Some examples:
      Commonly when people reflect on passing the ielts, they contemplate learning english for fun. The truth of the matter is that these activities are totally different.

      This book will explore the voyage that will lead to passing the ielts effectively and will serve as a guide to train you for a new level of victory.

      However before passing the ielts, you first need to assess and make sure that preparing for the ielts exam is an appropriate choice for you. and where is the comma after however?

      If you responded positively with a "yes" to these questions then chances are that passing the ielts is the right activity for your personality type and congratulations for running full force toward achieving your goals by reading this book! LOL...

      A serious bug is that the script strips proper capitalisation (English/english; IELTS/ielts and so on). I am not a technology expert but before going on to patent it, there's a lot of work to be done. This is a tool for guided composition but if you want to use the output, if only as draft material, it might take the same amount of time to produce a decent copy as it might have taken you, had you written it from scratch. At this point, IMO, it is a half-baked potato.

      I agree. If you are looking for the software that will produce a quality ebook that you would be proud sharing, then you will be disappointed.

      But if you use the software as a way to grab a template that you can edit to produce a quality product then you will be satisfied.

      It's value is in saving you time and effort in coming up with a quality product. All you need to do is add your own personal touch to the content the software produces and you should be fine.

    Many thanks to both of you for your thoughts and experiences.

    George, I was hopeful that the final content would be more unique, but I also suspected that the reality would be a little disappointing. But the idea of using it for seed articles makes the product more attractive.

    Funprojects, thank you for your post as well. Creative writing is clearly not a problem for you! From your experience, I can see that to use Wordbotic effectively, you would have to learn how to enter phrases "to the template." And if I start doing that, then who is working for whom?
    • Profile picture of the author funprojects
      Hahaha, Art! It is a problem, actually...

      Here is the output of Wordbotic: 'Untitled Post' | TextUploader.com

      Ridiculous, if not straight unreadable. But, to be fair, it might have some practical application; like, get you really really angry so that you sit down and just do it better yourself?

    So, all due respect to the developer, what we really have here is a digital version of Mad Libs. For some topics, like the sales page example of "run a marathon" it works pretty well. But it would be hilarious if you plugged in "fix a toilet."
    .
    As in "You will then notice your mind, body and spirit is totally prepared to fix the toilet!"

    (and wouldn't that be "are" instead of "is?") :/

    Thanks. That helps a lot. Template based automated text creation has been around since the Dada Engine was released in 1996. Bad then, still bad now. A 48% dup rate due to the template between two wholly irrelevant subjects is awful. It doesn't matter how many templates exist as they will each be awful once used.

    I've bought $300 per month article writing software in the past, and others, and everything I have seen starts with excitement and then dies because the quality is never there and for the time spent going back over an article to fix problems one might as well have written it from scratch.

    I was thinking if it created passable content, that was not duplicate, $17 is no problem for creating content to put on third party sites to use for backlinks. But this won't work.

    I'm getting old when I've seen similar software circle around a few times. But, maybe the author will solve some issues and have reasonably priced software competitive with the news story generation programs major media has been using for a decade. I wish her good luck.

      It doesn't spin it writes a new eBook based on words and phrases you input. So, to use it with PLR you could augment your Wordbotic ebooks with PLR.

      Jex1, I also sent a message but let's be fair and wait; it said on the site support might get back to you in 4 days. The creator of the product is not a fly-by-night person, she has many interesting ideas and successful projects; unfortunately, this one is a dead-end street.

    Guys, apologies for the off-topic but I have no idea what the proper refund requesting procedure is. I have waited for 4 days, no answer, and I started a PayPal dispute. Now there is a thread that says that we are not allowed to start PayPal disputes for JVZoo products; technically speaking, this isn't a JVZoo product but a WSO. Anyways, I came across that thread too late.

    I understand she must be busy but it might be a good idea to bear in mind the fact that this thread comes on the very top of Google search results for "Wordbotic", and slow communication is not really good PR...
