This is your fast-track to a home-based business to be proud of, without spending a ton of money, and even if you have no experience. Doing general transcription work from home is easier to get started with than you might think. I’ll show you how!
It’s no secret that the fastest way to earn money online is by providing a service. Writers, graphic artists, programmers, web designers, and more are in demand these days. But you don’t have to be the brooding creative type to start your own business. In fact, you don’t have to have any special skills at all.
My name is Loretta Oliver, and I’ve been working from home as a transcriptionist for more than 14 years. I enjoy being there when my family needs me, not having to beg the boss to give me time off to go to a ComicCon with them, and having the freedom to work when and where I choose.
If that sounds like the kind of lifestyle you would enjoy, then keep reading, you’re in the right place.
Transcription Crash Course gives you everything you need to get started as a general transcriptionist quickly and easily.
You don’t need any special skills or experience here. Unlike some business models, you don’t need a ton of start-up capital. In fact, if you have a computer and the willingness to learn a few things, you’ve got everything you need!
This easy-to-understand, step-by-step guide will show you the exact steps I took to get my own transcription business started. You’ll learn:
- The must-have tools and equipment every transcriptionist needs
(hint: you probably already have most of them, if not all of them!)
- The time and money-wasting “solutions” you can live without, and why.
- The different types of transcription and how they vary.
- Where to find the invaluable resources to make your job easier and make your clients happier.
- How to continuously improve your new skills.
- How to find a steady stream of work that will keep you busy as many hours as you choose, so you never have to wonder where the next check is coming from.
That’s not to say this is going to be super easy. Please, don’t think that you can push a button and magically earn a full time income. That’s just the reality of anything. There are things to learn. You’ll gain a new skill and it will need to be practiced. But, I do genuinely believe that all of this can be learned and you can absolutely do this even if you don’t have experience and you can do it all without spending a small fortune on training programs.
General Transcription is a Hot In-demand Service and It’s a Great Solution If You Want to Start Working From Home Today
Let’s be real for a moment. If there wasn’t plenty of work to go around, I wouldn’t be sharing my secrets with you. Just to be clear, there are business people both on and offline struggling to find good transcriptionists to help with their projects, and many of those projects are ongoing long term work at home transcription jobs.
Here are a few examples of people who regularly hire transcriptionists:
- Internet marketers looking to turn interviews and teleseminars into valuable information products.
- Podcasters who want to distribute episodes in text format via their blogs or forums.
- YouTubers who want good transcripts to embed with their videos, because the automated versions are generally terrible.
- Legal offices that need a written record of interviews or depositions.
- Insurance companies that need phone calls transcribed for easy cross-referencing.
- Busy bloggers or writers who like to save time by writing via voice recorder.
- Journalists working on articles from interviews they’ve recorded.
These are just a few of the types of people that I talk to every day about the content creation and projects they need help with. Those are just a few quick examples, there are plenty more people that need these services, especially with video and audio content on the rise every single day.
If you’ve ever considered starting your own business so you could work from home, now is the time. Stop letting your dreams slip by while you’re working a J.O.B., and start taking action to change your future.
WHERE’S THE ORDER BUTTON?
Normally this is where you would click to order the program. I’m working on a big update right now, so I’ve taken the order button offline until that’s ready to go. Don’t worry, things will be back to normal, and a bit improved, very soon 🙂
Frequently Asked Questions
What about medical transcription? I do not teach or cover medical transcription here. This is all about general transcription and we occassionally discuss a little bit of legal transcription as well. Medical transcription is an entirely different world and does require experience, special training, and frequently varies from medical facility to medical facility. If you see a program claiming you can begin working from home in medical transcription in just a few weeks if you pay them thousands of dollars, please don’t buy their sales pitch.
What is general transcription? The short answer is any transcription that is not medical.
What would I be transcribing as a general transcriptionist? The possibilities are endless right now. The internet is full of audio and video resources, but not everyone can watch or listen. Sometimes reading is simply a preferred method of learning. Text is also a little bit more search engine friendly, so having written versions of those audios and texts helps the people who need those resources to find them more easily. Authors and journalists conduct interviews or record their thoughts speaking out loud, you can help them turn those into words on a page so they can finish their writing work.
Hello. I feel it only fair that I first introduce myself to you and let you know a little bit about me before you dive into the transcription lessons and get started on your new work at home journey.
My name is Loretta Oliver and I am a work at home mother of four wonderful young men. I have been working from home full-time since 2001. I’ve done various things in that time, but by far the most successful and most enjoyable thing for me has been my transcription career.
I have done various types of what would be considered general transcription and legal transcription. Including, but not limited to insurance transcripts, board meetings, interviews, podcasts, police suspect interviews, coaching sessions, instructional videos, and so much more.
If there’s sound, there can be a transcript and I’ll gladly type it up for you. In the past I have worked for several different transcription companies, but in 2007 I decided to go solo and take private clients instead. I did this for a few reasons, mostly the flexibility it allowed me. I could work when I wanted and take time off when I needed to.
I’ve always enjoyed being a part of the work at home community and I try to help others get started as often as I can. That’s what brought me to write this guide and share it with you. If you have any questions about the information contained here feel free to send me an email and I will get back to you as soon as I can with a response.
Thank you for putting your trust in me. I appreciate your time and I look forward to getting to know you.
