Podcast Transcription Services

Why do I need a transcript of my audio podcast? You have an idea that you want to get out there and you want to reach the greatest number of people possible. Podcasts are the most popular way to make your ideas heard but they don’t include everybody. So, many podcasters now transcribe their podcasts or outsource them to reputable podcast transcription services to gain more market share and “eyes” on their topic.

Two Key Advantages To Having Your Podcasts Transcribed

#1 More Viewers

In today’s digital world, we take easy access to things for granted. We can get our news and infotainment directly to our mobile devices via podcast without thinking and then listen to them while we commute to work. But while this may seem easily accessible to us, what about those who are hard of hearing or deaf? How will they get that information? So one key benefit of having your podcast transcribed is that you will reach a wider audience by including those who can’t hear. It also shows you are a bit more caring about people who can have access to your message. A nice touch for your reputation.

#2 Higher SEO Visibility

Getting a podcast transcribed, therefore, helps you grab a bigger audience. This, in turn, builds the value of your website for search engines like Google and Bing that will find your transcripts and include them in their results for new searches.

We know that search engines love podcasts because talk is natural and the subject matter is often of more value than plain blog text-based discussions. Recently, and with AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) becoming the next standard for mobile and search by voice, search engines have shown an inclination to value podcasts that are combined with text. Consequently, this increases your value reach for search engine rankings and being heard!

Transcription Formats For Podcasts

So there are already two good reasons to consider getting a transcript of your podcast. But what if you are worried that the podcast transcription might not accurately convey your message?

In this case, you need to choose the format you want your podcast transcribed in. There are multiple format options out there so you always have choices like “verbatim” (with all the words and some expressions) to “smart” (a summary version) – you can see transcript layouts on our audio transcription page. Whatever your preferences, always keep in mind the reader. We don’t want them to miss the meaning of what is being discussed in the audio.

If your podcast involves multiple participants, perhaps a focus group, then you also need to carefully consider how to identify speakers and label their turns accordingly. A tip we often give to our podcast clients is to manage the discussion by asking each participant to mention their name first before speaking.
