FullText vs LIKE

Can anyone offer me any insight the difference here?

I'm currently using columnA like '%keyword%' or columnB like '%keyword%' etc. for text searching my database. If i switch to using fulltext and the MATCH method can i expect a significant performance boost? Will it slow down my row inserts substancially if i'm doing bulk row inserts and i have fulltext indexing enabled on a few of my columns?

Thanks in advance!
