On Friday, EzineArticles expert author Daniel Hall interviewed me for an audio special on his website that will be released within a week or so… and near the end of the interview we were talking about ways to generate articles without having to struggle (as many do).
As I was mentioning strategies to repurpose old content that was long forgotten, it sparked Daniel to ask and offer this nugget: Wouldn’t it be easy to talk into a microphone for an hour or any time frame, then pay someone to transcribe the MP3 into a MS Word .doc…break the transcription into 350-500 word articles and you’d have an instant set of 5-20 articles to put into syndication. Just add title, keywords, a default resource box and submit.
A typical hour of audio costs about $40-$85 to transcribe and you’ll typically get about 12-24 pages of content from an hours worth of audio. If you figured 1 or 2 pages per article, that means it would only cost you about $3-$5 per article (in terms of production costs).
Can you imagine the time savings from this strategy? One hour of audio transcribed, plus editing time after your transcription person transcribes it for you would result in about 10 syndicatable articles out of about 2 hours of your time or an article EVERY 12 minutes!
Read that again: Yes you can create a quality original content article every 12 minutes for only a few dollars of paying someone else to transcribe your audio recording.
What do you think of this audio to articles strategy?
