5 Reasons You Should Use A Transcription Service For Your Ebooks and Articles

If you thought that transcription was just for the medical and legal sectors, you couldn’t be more wrong! Transcription services can be used in pretty much any business sector and for a range of different purposes. In this post, I want to talk a little bit about the services that Transcription City offers for people who already create, or want to create books and ebooks.

Transcription Services For Writers And Authors

You may not realise it, but you can speak an average of 150 words a minute! Considering that this post alone is probably going to be between 400 – 600 words, that’s not really much talking. Many writers can spend hours at a computer, taking notes and trying to come up with new ideas when really they could be creating whole novels in a very short space of time through dictation. To outline some of the benefits a transcription service can provide for authors, I have compiled a list of my top 5 reasons authors and writers should use a transcription service.
Reason 1: More Ideas. Have you ever noticed that your best ideas usually come when you are away from the computer? Sitting at a keyboard for hours isn’t the most inspiring place to be! Using a transcription company to transcribe your ideas gives you the freedom to be creative as and when the mood takes you, giving you time to come up with great ideas and great copy. Which brings us to our next point…
Reason 2: More Time. Typing and proofing your writing can be time consuming, not to mention the time it takes to format and lay out your work properly (especially if you are writing an ebook). By using dictation, you are able to easily record your ideas wherever you are and whatever time of day it is. So next time you wake up in the middle of the night with a great idea, you can dictate large chunks of your content immediately, without even getting out of bed! Which means…
Reason 3: More Productivity. Speech is around four times faster than the typing speed of an average experienced professional transcriptionist. This means that instead of sitting at your desk for eight hours a day or more writing, you can spend two hours recording your ideas anywhere. You could even use the time it takes to drive home to dictate a new article or a whole chapter of your ebook (as long as you use hands-free!). Now that’s multitasking!
Reason 4: More Money. Now that your productivity is up 400% and you’re multitasking, you are able to make more money because you have the time to take on new projects and finish them more quickly.
Reason 5: No More Stress. So your productivity is up, you have more time and you have more money. This is all a recipe for a much calmer and more relaxed you! You no longer have to spend hours sitting at a desk typing your article or ebook. You can even choose to have your dictation edited so that you don’t even have to worry about proofreading anymore.
So that’s my Top 5 Reasons that Authors and Writers should use a Transcription Service. If you have any questions or would like more information about our transcription or formatting services, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always happy to help.
