Want to discover a simple & fast concept that will help you produce hundreds of articles effortlessly without having to write a single article nor hire a ghostwriter?
If you can speak into a mic and record it, you can get an incredible market advantage for your article writing & marketing strategy.
Here’s why this strategy works:
- No article writing experience necessary.
- Writers block never happens.
- SPEED/LEVERAGE Advantage: One article may take you an hour to write; but in one hour of speaking into a mic, you can easily create 15-20+ high quality original articles.
- Uniqueness factor is huge: No one speaks like you do. The quality of content you produce when speaking is uniquely different than when you write on the same topic.
- Remarkable Time Savings: Besides the huge return on time, you can outsource the monotonous job of transcribing & editing your audio into articles.
Sold on the idea of using your spoken voice into a mic in order to produce articles yet?
Here are the quick 10 steps to using this strategy:
- Hook up a mic (doesn’t have to be high quality) to your computer and find a recording program to save your work (I use AconDigital’s Accoustica, most others use Audacity/SoundForge/SndSampler).
- Pick a core topic you want to speak about relating to your expertise. Don’t worry if you go off on tangents as each tangent will become a separate article.
- Begin speaking and pretend that you’re giving a live seminar where you don’t have the luxury of stopping and editing. It’s important that you force yourself to reach a flow state if it doesn’t happen naturally.
- I recommend a target *minimum* number of minutes that you’ll be speaking for such as 30-90 minutes. Don’t worry about going over if you reach a flow state as I’m sure your audience would love to hear you continue to speak.
- Save your recording as a .WAV file (for PC) or .AIFF (for Mac) and I recommend using a file naming convention with today’s date, topic of the audio, and your name. Example: 2008-12-11-ArticleWriting-ChrisKnight.WAV
- After you’ve archived the file, save it as an MP3 for faster transport/transit to your transcription service provider.
- Send the MP3 to your transcription service of choice; wait for a day to a week, and they’ll send it back to you in a MS Word or text document. Expect to invest about $60-$100 USD/per hour of audio transcribed.
- Slice & Dice the transcription into 300-800 word chunks that are themed by topic or sub-topic to create dozens of articles.
- Log in to your EzineArticles membership interface and submit all of your articles at once (saves time vs. uploading one at a time).
- Within a week our Editors will review your articles and you’ll most likely be in the top 15% of all EzineArticles members having submitted more than 10 articles without having written a single article by hand.
Now, I have some insider info as to an author who has submitted 126 articles that were ALL transcribed from his spoken word: Check out Alex Mandossian’s articles.
What? You mean you’ve already produced audio CD’s/MP3’s or have done teleseminars?
