Business Marketing Tip – How to Hire Someone to Convert Your Audio Training to Articles

In the last few days I have been interviewing a handful of folks that are looking to do transcription work to find one or two people that will be able to take the real estate and marketing courses I already have plus some of the new ones that I am scheduled to do and convert them in articles to post on the blog and various other marketing opportunities.I have some feedback and tips for those of you that are considering doing something similar in your own business, but before I get to some of the tips I want to remind you why I am even bothering to do this in the first place.Content (and by content I mostly mean articles for your website) is critically important to build and keep traffic to your website. Whether you are just posting the articles on your site or you are also using the articles on other article directory sites for syndication and republication, you will find that having content, specifically valuable content, and a lot of it to be one of the most effective, long term traffic models available.For example, here is some real world data. Just before the New Year, I went back and looked at Google Analytics data from one of my websites. I took the total amount of search engine traffic coming to my site over a specific–very long–period of time and divided it by the number of articles I had on my website. Then I divided by the number of months in the time period to get a number of visitors from search engines per article per month number. First off, I want to say that this number is conservatively low because I used the total number of articles at the end of the period as if that number of articles existed the entire time when really I was adding articles at a rate of about 1 or 2 per day.So, what was my number? 10 new visitors per month per article. Yours may be much higher, yours might be a little lower, but let’s look at what that really means in terms of pay per click traffic (which I think is similar in quality to organic search engine traffic from articles, but that’s a topic for another day).If you were paying 50 cents per click to get a visitor to your site, then 10 new visitors from search engines per month per article, means that you article is worth $5 per month in pay per click traffic to you or about $60 per year.So, for every article that you write, you can expect, on average, about $60 worth of traffic from that article over the course of a year. And that, in a round about way, is why I am taking the numerous hour long talks that I have done and converting them into text articles.Ok… so, getting back to the feedback on hiring someone to transcribe my hour long talks and then take that transcription and convert it to articles.First, price does not always mean quality. Often it does, but there are people that just want to earn some extra money and they are happy making a lot less than someone that is a “professional” transcriptionist that is charging 6 times as much. And yes, the difference can be that much. I have had people bid and do a great job at a much, much lower rate. I have also gotten horribly poor quality stuff from mid to high price guys.Second, get lots of bids and try several people out. When I go to hire someone I advertise the job is to do a single hour of work and let them know that if it goes well, I do have more. I will even hire several people from the first job post to do one hour each to find the ones that communicate well with me, do it in a reasonable amount of time, and do a reasonably good job. If I happen to find two or three in the group that fit that standard than I will hire more than one and split the work until one of them opts either through their actions or words not to do the work for me anymore.Third, set the standard early on. It is much easier to set a high standard in the beginning and have folks strive to reach that standard than to be vague and let them fail from your lack of standards.So, I hope those tips help you if you decide to convert any audio presentations you have into articles.

Consumer Credit Services

Beyond that, and for the people who are beginning to lose control, there is credit counseling along with debt consolidation. These consumer credit services work very well for the consumer who has yet to start missing payments or has fallen somewhat behind. Debt consolidation without the necessity of a loan works very well for those with smaller debt, but who are behind. For those with assets like a home or other property, they may find it necessary to obtain a secured loan using that property as collateral. While it is one way to pay off one set of debts, it certainly doesn’t get rid of debt completely.


Other options in consumer credit services such as debt settlement, debt management, and bankruptcy are more drastic measures, but each does work. Bankruptcy, while claiming to be a fresh start with all bills erased, no longer works that way. The consumer can often end up losing assets and still paying off some creditors. Both debt settlement and debt management work without the necessity of loans or loss of property. By working with a consumer credit service known as a debt resolution company, professional negotiators work with the consumer’s creditors and the principles are reduced. At times, this can be as much as 50% off the original balance. The consumer pays monthly into an insured account. Money from the account is used to pay off creditors. With even the most sensible monthly plan, a consumer can be free of debt in 12 to 48 months at the most.
