So we thought that we would come up with some helpful tips, that can improve the quality of your podcasts and also get you found by a larger audience. So here goesâ€¦
The SEO benefits of podcast transcription
Podcast Transcription enables you to utilize the large amounts of information presented in your Podcast and turn it into textual information. This can be posted on to your website, or converted into subtitles and captions for your videos, which makes your site or channel much more likely to be found and indexed by the search engines. This will likely bring you a lot more traffic meaning a larger audience. It is also something that not many people know about or can be bothered to do, so can give you a really big advantage over your competitors.
Getting a wider Audience
Not only is Podcast transcription an essential part of catering to people who are deaf or hard of hearing, but it also makes your podcasts much easier to share. If you give your listeners the option of using a transcript, it enables them to share the most important parts of your podcast through the text contained within the transcript. This can then be shared and commented on more easily, which will not only likely give you a larger audience, but will also increase your audience interaction. You may even come up with a great idea for a new podcast episode from looking at your audiences’ comments.
Great for Learning
Transcripts and text can be a great added resource for learning. If your podcast is educational in nature, then having a transcript to accompany it can really help clarify important points. It also give you the opportunity to learn, without the audio, such as in a library or workplace.
Podcast transcripts are so versatile! They can be used as is and posted in a PDF or plain format to your blog, they can be used to create captions and subtitles if you make video blogs and with a little editing, can also be transformed into articles, ebooks and manuals. Meaning that you have lots of helpful information to give to your audience.
