Do you need to get your audio content transcribed professionally by a fast typist?
When it comes to transcription, speed and accuracy trumps.
Getting someone who transcribes fast is hard.
Finding one who transcribes accurately is even harder.
I’m Bryan Grey, a virtual assistant transcriptionist.
Here’s what I’ll do to transcribe your audio content effectively:
Get your audio files written professionally
Be it a podcast, business meetings, interviews, or an online video course, there comes a time when you’ll need to get your audio content reproduced in a document.
An easy way out would be to do it yourself.
But, do you really have the time?
Studies show that it takes up to 4 to 6 hours to transcribe an audio file of one hour.
The time spent doing it yourself might not seem like much, but it adds up quickly.
At the beginning of your business, money (cost) was the highest factor you considered when making any business move.
Now that your business has reached the point where you need to hire a VA, time has overtaken money as the major consideration.
If you spend the majority of your day with low-value tasks like transcription that don’t impact your business heavily, you’ll be left with little time to do those things that directly generate business income.
That is why most brand owners break the ceiling over their growth when they brought in a VA because they suddenly had more time to focus on high-value activities.
There are a thousand and one things you’ve got to do as an online entrepreneur.
Transcription simply isn’t one of them.
As an online entrepreneur, your time is better spent on handling the creative and strategic side of your business.
All administrative tasks can easily be outsourced to buy you more time.
Not to mention the fact that a professional transcriptionist can format a document in ways that you just can’t – ways that you shouldn’t stress yourself with but delegate.
Why do you need a transcription virtual assistant?
The level of accuracy found with a transcription virtual assistant can’t be obtained by a novice.
A transcription VA showcases his expertise in a way that’ll reflect in the quality of delivery and writing.
Based on their experience, transcription virtual assistants are very much likely to have higher turnaround times when transcribing.
An audio file that takes your normal office employee four hours to transcribe will take a transcription VA one hour or less.
The delay in transcribing is not necessarily the length of the audio file, but the common disruptions, hiccups, and sometimes unclear statements contained in it.
An employee with inexperienced ears will keep going back and forth trying to get what a speaker is saying in an audio clip.
Play the back and forth sequence a couple of times and you end up with someone taking almost the whole day to transcribe just a one-hour audio file.
Your business doesn’t have the time for that.
Maybe you created an online video course and you want a downloadable PDF version of it for your students.
You should be able to expect a well-crafted text content delivered to you in the shortest time possible.
To speed up the turnaround time, you’ll need a VA who has over the years trained his ears to pick out the most indistinct phrases.
Most business owners turn to full-time employees when seeking out transcription services.
Meanwhile, virtual assistants specialized in transcription cost far less.
For an employee, you’ll need to provide or rent an office space, supply working equipment like computers and other devices, pay for internet access, dole out money for tax and employee expenses.
With a VA, it’s different.
A virtual assistant comes with his own working equipment, internet subscription, zero tax charges, and zero need to provide a room with a table and chairs since the work is done remotely.
You’ll save costs on all sides by hiring a virtual assistant to handle your transcription.
Plus, getting a transcription virtual assistant is a big bonus as nothing beats specialization.
All your text content will come out aesthetically appealing, well-formatted, error-free, and with 99.9% accuracy.
How can I help?
To begin with, I’ll create a clean text version of all audio content that needs to be transcribed.
The transcript file will come out well-formatted in accordance with its purpose.
If it’s a YouTube video or an online video course you want to get transcribed, I’ll make the transcript to flow in such a way that it’ll capture the reader’s interest from beginning to end.
On the other hand, if it’s a podcast, interview, or a meeting, the transcript will be written to differentiate each speaker and what they have to say in a standard playwriting format.
All of this will be done in the shortest time possible.
One of the major requirements of an excellent transcription VA is to be a swift typist.
Time can really add up when transcription jobs are outsourced to a slow or average typist.
Audio content should be typed and delivered in the quickest, most reasonable time possible.
The last thing you want is to wait all day to receive your transcript.
And I’ll help you in that regard as I’m a fast typist capable of typing 66 WPM (words per minute).
You’ll always receive your transcript in record time, without delay and without fail.
Most clients have guidelines creating a framework that guides a VA in providing transcription services.
I’m sure you might have a few guidelines of your own.
I’ll make sure I tailor my transcript files according to your directions so that the work will come out exactly as you want it.
A big part of customer satisfaction is rendering jobs according to their preference and taste, and that’s just what I intend to do.
I’ll also deliver your transcript in whatever method you please, whether in Word format, PDF, EPUB, Google Docs, or any other format.
Some information contained in the audio are strictly confidential and not for public consumption.
As a transcription virtual assistant, I’m going to be privy to such knowledge.
Classified information as such will be strongly guarded.
There’ll be no information leakage of any sort, so you can rest easy knowing that every info is in safe hands.
What to expect?
I’m okay with charging hourly or per project, whichever is convenient for you. No hidden fees at all.
