You may have seen those “typing for pay” jobs before — well, most of them are scams, so stay away from them!
However, there is one “typing for pay” business that a work at home mom *can* do. And, it's legit.
Here's the scoop. Many, many online businesses record teleseminars and turn them into infoproducts. You may have even bought some of them. And, what do most come with? All the good ones include a Transcript, right? (See EasyArticleMarketing.com as an example.)
Personally, I won't buy a product unless it comes with a Transcript. I'm a visual learner so I like to “see” what I'm learning. Plus, I'm a terrible multi-tasker, so I can only take time to listen to audios when I'm at the gym or doing something other than spending time with the kids or working (which narrows it down quite a bit). Even if I'm out back, watching the kids swim in the pool, I can't listen, because they keep yelling “Watch this, Mommy!”. If I have headphones on, I feel like I'm not all there. If I'm reading, I can set the papers down and give them my full attention while they show off for me. Anyway, heading off on a tangent. (Moral of the story — if you create an infoproduct, make sure it has transcripts!) 😉
Anyway, back to the plot — who do you suppose TRANSCRIBES all of these audios? When John Reese records an audio, do you think he sits and types it in himself? Of course not. When Kelly and I recorded six hours of audio for EasyPartnerships.com — did we type it all up? Heck no! We hired a Transcriptionist.
With all of the weekly podcasts and radio shows… don't you think some of them would jump at an offer to have their shows transcribed? I know they would.
–> Just to clarify — this is NOT Medical Transcription. It's General Transcription. No medical typing is involved.
