TRANSCRIPTION

Communications with a microphone and laptop

Do you LOVE delivering content via audio and video? Great! Heres a newsflash if you are not simultaneously delivering a written transcript  of that content you are greatly limiting your reach! Here are just 3 reasons why:

Accessibility
Learning Styles/Workflow and
SEO

To put it simply, whether because of a physical or technical issue, everyone can not or will not access your content when delivered via audio or video so why not make your material accessible to those folks?

Remember, many of us (self included here) are simply not video people. Oh sure, there are times when I really need to see how to do something, for instance I love a good quality knitting video thats going to walk me through a new stitch or two, but I am much more likely to be drawn to content that is predominantly text that I can scan to quickly identify the good stuff that I’m looking for. And don’t you want to appeal to those with different personalities and learning styles too?

Finally, sure Google is onboard with all this video stuff and continues to look for better ways to index the content found on them, but seriously limiting yourself to only the title and a few tags simply can’t compare to or rank as highly as a post with a good chunk of text in it.

And that is why you should hire me to transcribe your audios and videos!

PROOFREADING & COPYEDITING

copyeditAs the Editor for TheNetworkMarketingMagazine.com for the past 10 years I’ve developed a sensitivity to those little errors and inconsistencies so often overlooked by writers. As a copyeditor I correct errors, query you about conflicting statements, and request advice when the means of resolving a problem is unclear. I may also incorporate your replies to queries, that’s entirely up to you; this work is known as cleanup editing.

Light Copyediting tasks include:

Correcting faulty spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
Correcting incorrect usage (such as can for may).
Checking specific cross-references (for example, “As Table 14-6 shows…”).
Ensuring consistency in spelling, hyphenation, numerals, fonts, and capitalization.
Checking for proper sequencing (such as alphabetical order) in lists and other displayed material.
Recording the first references to figures, tables, and other display elements.
Check content only to detect spots where copy is missing.

Medium Copyediting tasks include:

Performing all tasks for light copyediting.
Changing text and headings to achieve parallel structure.
Flagging inappropriate figures of speech.
Ensuring that key terms are handled consistently and that vocabulary lists and the index contain all the terms that meet criteria specified by the publisher.
Ensuring that previews, summaries, and end-of-chapter questions reflect content.
Tracking the continuity of plot, setting, and character traits, and querying the discrepancies, in fiction manuscripts.
Enforcing consistent style and tone in a multi-author manuscript.
Changing passive voice to active voice, if requested.
Flagging ambiguous or incorrect statements.

RATES: $25 per hour (minimum $25)
