Key Differences Between KWHero and NeuronWriter

While the table above offers a useful summary, the devil really is in the details. In this section, we’ll compare the two platforms based on a few key metrics.

1. The Founding Team, Prior SEO Experience and KWHero’s Validation

NeuronWriter’s founder has an impressive 20+ years of experience building SEO software.

But KWHero shines through in three different ways. 

First, KWHero was built by a team that has over three decades of combined SEO experience. 

Second, KWHero’s founding team, before building our product,  ran an SEO content agency with clients across different industries and niches. This gave us a peculiar understanding of the customers we now serve alongside their SEO and content marketing needs.

Finally, and most importantly, before KWHero officially launched, we released our Beta version to the SEO agency to streamline its content creation process.

The results were astonishing and validated the usefulness of KWHero. You can read the full case study here but here’s a quick summary:

  • The agency went from 200k words to 1.5m words per month. 
  • Turnaround per 50,000 words reduced from 21 days to about 7 days. 
  • KWHero offered a leaner model for creating content at scale. As such, cost per article reduced by about 50%. These savings were passed on to the customers.
  • Finally, customer satisfaction improved drastically.

2. Simplicity and Ease of Use — KWHero Keeps its Dashboard Simple, Keeping Users from Feeling Overwhelmed

Technology should be intuitive. This universal principle is why your 5-year-old can pick up your complex-looking tablet and find the games in 30 seconds flat. But this principle doesn’t seem like it’s been entirely followed with NeuronWriter.

For context, here’s NeuronWriter’s dashboard right after you create a project – one of the first few things you’re prompted to do after signing up.

Note the multiple columns spread out across the screen.

In contrast, here’s what the KWHero content dashboard looks like when you create a content plan, which is the KWHero equivalent of NeuronWriter’s projects.

This is about as straightforward as it can get. Click the “+” button in the left column and you have a content plan already. Click the second “+” button in the right column and you can input a keyword for content creation.

This problem repeats itself, even in the content creation section of NeuronWriter. For context, below are screenshots of NeuronWriter’s guideline summary for content creation. 

So we don’t end up speaking for you, could you find the word-count recommendation in the first screenshot at a single glance? Or did you have to check twice? Our guess is the latter because we had to. 

In contrast, look at KWHero’s guideline summary.

One quick glance and you immediately have all the information you need. 

We built KWHero this way because some of our most important users are business owners and busy content specialists. The emphasis is on “busy.” So, everything is simplified such that they only need to push a few buttons and we’ll handle the rest.

This is not to say that NeuronWriter’s features are pointless. In fact, they get a point for including a “more” button for their users to read more on the metrics in the guideline summary. 

But our first impression of them overall was that they were a tad overwhelming.

3. Plans and Pricing — KWHero Does Not Restrict Core Features Across Tiers

KWHero’s plans are split into three main tiers – Basic, Marketer and Agency.

NeuronWriter, however, has five plans – Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. 

Besides the obvious differences in the tiers, let’s point out one key distinction that might not be so obvious but matters in the long run — Feature Limitation. 

Let’s break that down.

1. KWHero gives you an AI-powered outline builder even at the lowest plan. NeuronWriter withholds this until you buy the Gold Plan. Without the Gold plan, you only get a copy-pasted list of the competitors’ outlines — stuff you could’ve gotten yourself with enough patience. 

NeuronWriter also offers a few recommendations for H2 headings, some of which are not relevant to your topic at all. The screenshot below is the perfect case in point.

2. KWHero gives you AI-powered content creation across all tiers. Again, you have to upgrade to the Gold Plan on NeuronWriter to get the same benefits. 

To put this in context, while running our tests, we found that we were unable to one-shot an AI article with NeuronWriter without having to pay extra. 

Note how the two major templates for content generation are unavailable in the screenshot above. 

KWHero gives these features away with extensive customisation capabilities in its lowest plan. 

3. Several other NeuronWriter features cost more just to acquire. Think Neuron API, OpenAI API, edit access on shared projects, etc. While this is pretty common in the SaaS world, we can’t help but think of the implications on the customer.

Suppose  your content plan and budget can only accommodate 15,000 AI credits’ worth of content at $23/month, but you also need to integrate the tool with your WP site or have your contract-based content manager edit and create content. In that situation, NeuronWriter basically compels you to pay at least $69/month instead of your initial $23/month budget.

At KWHero, we understand how these “little” costs can add up. So, instead of reserving certain features for some customers, our pricing plans give everyone the same features at limits that are reasonable for their use.

4. Value for Money — KWHero Offers More High-Quality Articles at Lower Prices

Before we point out the difference, let’s make a few things clear so there’s no confusion or unfairness.

  • KWHero exclusively uses GPT4 Turbo. We’re very particular about our content quality. NeuronWriter uses GPT3.5 and GPT4. The former helps NeuronWriter produce more words for less credits but the quality isn’t as good as the GPT4 models.
  • We’ll be comparing KWHero to NeuronWriter in this section based on the GPT4 models since they’re the closest to each other.
  • We’ll also be using NeuronWriter’s Gold plan for our analysis since it’s the closest (only a $10 difference) to our base plan.

That said, with KWHero’s Basic plan, you can expect to generate 10 articles and 10 content plans with a ceiling of 7,500 words each. That’s a potential 75,000 words (7,500 words max per article x 10 articles) of high quality GPT4 Turbo content with only $59. 

On the other hand, if you were to use GPT4 on NeuronWriter’s Gold plan, by the estimate at the bottom of their pricing table, you should be able to produce about 0.3 words per AI credit. We’re assuming the lower limit because the higher limit of 5 words per credit was attached to GPT3.5 on their website.

At 0.3 words per AI credit, you would only be able to produce about 13,500 words (0.3 words x 45,000 AI credits) on the Gold plan, which retails at $69 monthly. 

This is 61,500 words lower than KWHero’s Basic Plan that costs $10 less per month and offers excellent quality from our tests and user feedback.

Now, of course, there’ll likely be a few nuances in between. For example, your articles might not always be 7,500 words unless you want them to be. Also, there might be some wiggle room with NeuronWriter’s GPT4 content. 

But, just looking at the numbers, KWHero offers significantly more words than NeuronWriter does at a lower price without compromising on quality.

5. The Competitor Analysis Function — KWHero Automatically Chooses Competitors Better Suited to Your Content Creation Goals

KWHero and NeuronWriter have similar ideas when it comes to crafting content that Google will rank. Among other things, it involves analyzing high quality content from competitors in the top ten positions for your target keyword and then building outlines off those high-quality content pieces.

We tested out the two platforms to see precisely how they measured up to themselves with a simple keyword — GetResponse Review 2024.

This was NeuronWriter’s competitor list.

On the other hand, this was KWHero’s competitor list, unedited and unaltered.

Note two important things from the screenshots above that KWHero does better than NeuronWriter —

  • For starters, at a glance, you can see the website’s domain power alongside the content score, NOT JUST the content score as presented in NeuronWriter.
  • Secondly, and most importantly, KWHero does not automatically tick every result in the top ten. It’s our way of recommending the best competitors to use just in case you do not have the time for extensive competitor research.

Using this article as an example, Quora’s content is probably not expert driven. Plus, it is not structured well enough to extract heading tags. It would only serve to confuse the AI writer. The same goes with G2. So, we didn’t select them. NeuronWriter did.

6. Content Quality and Adherence to Instructions — KWHero Follows Instructions Better and Produces Higher-Quality Content 

Here are a few details on how we ran the comparison and the things we did to maintain fairness.

  • We tested NeuronWriter’s GPT4 Turbo against KWHero’s GPT4 Turbo to keep things as fair as possible since NeuronWriter’s GPT3.5 is naturally not as advanced as GPT4 Turbo.
  • We selected the same competitors in the top ten positions for the same keywords on both NeuronWriter and KWHero. In theory, this should’ve made the NLP terms as identical as possible.
  • We didn’t create entire articles. Instead, we simply tried to generate three optimized FAQs with KWHero and NeuronWriter. Nothing too complicated.
  • With KWHero, we were able to generate all three FAQs at once. With NeuronWriter, we had to go paragraph by paragraph because of the account limitations that NeuronWriter imposes on plans lower than Gold – a problem that doesn’t exist with KWHero.
  • We set each FAQ to only 75 words on both KWHero and NeuronWriter and we set the tone of voice on both to “Formal,” as that was one tone they both had in common.
  • We changed absolutely nothing in both of the tools’ final outputs and we included no additional instructions or context before the article was generated.

That said, here are the results of the articles generated with KWHero vs. NeuronWriter. 

We couldn’t get the entire NeuronWriter output in one screenshot. Click here to view the entire output of both tools.

Here are a few key things we noticed:

a. Adherence to Word Count: Between the two tools, KWHero came the closest to following our word count instructions with 84, 81, and 132 words for all three FAQs. NeuronWriter, on the other hand, went overboard, with 300, 202, and 185 words for all three FAQs. Strangely, in answering the first FAQ, NeuronWriter cut itself off.

 This happened a few other times in our tests. 

b. Fluffy Content: In answering every question, KWHero goes straight to the point and gives the necessary details. NeuronWriter on the other hand, decided on more than 75 words and then included a ton of fluff to hit a target we didn’t set for it.

c. Over Optimization: Despite having upwards of 50 NLP terms waiting to be inserted, just like NeuronWriter, KWHero used only the ones that are relevant to each question and then left the rest for what should be a longer article. NeuronWriter, on the other hand, tried squeezing everything in there and ended up over-optimizing, potentially putting the content at risk of being flagged by Google for keyword stuffing.

Overall, while NeuronWriter produced technically and grammatically okay content, KWHero did this and a lot more in terms of following instructions and maintaining content quality.

Final Thoughts: KWHero is an All-In-One Solution for Planning, Creating and Publishing High-Quality Content 

While KWHero is still relatively new, it was designed to be an all-in-one solution, a 360-degree tech stack that streamlines the content marketing process for individuals, agencies, and teams. In more ways than one, it does this job efficiently, as is noticeable from our users’ reviews and this comparison. 

While NeuronWriter certainly has a plethora of features and redeeming qualities, KWHero comes out on top in more than a few ways. Sign up now to give it a spin!
