I wrote a blog yesterday about how captioning your real estate videos is important for SEO purposes and to assist the hearing impaired. In a previous blog, I wrote about www.fiverr.com – the website where you hire people to do things for you or provide services for you for $5 per job. Well, I’ve hired transcriptionists on fiverr.com to transcribe my messages in the past, and I can tell you that I’ve been quite pleased with most of the transcription work as well as the bump with the SEO. Today, I want to introduce you to two more services that can help you with transcribing your videos.
1. Omega Transcripts – For $8.25 per minute of video, Omega Transcripts will transcribe your video into a .srt file for you to upload directly into YouTube. Or you can have them transcribe your video into a Microsoft Word document for $1.25 per minute for a 5 day turnaround. You can then upload that Microsoft Word transcription file into YouTube using their Beta captioning upload – which I have had very good luck with.
2. Verbatim IT – These folks provide a video transcription service for a flat rate of $1.50/minute, and they will even upload the file for you. If you have a heavy accent, no worries… VerbatimIT has you covered with no extra transcription charges. VerbatimIT will also give you an hourly rate of $30 for transcription service for those long videos.
Don’t forget to checkout www.fiverr.com as well, but these 3 options are likely all you need to handle your transcriptions. If you know of any other transcription sites that are awesome or do something very neat, then please leave those sites below in the comments section.
