In this week's episode of Turning Your Knowledge Into Profits we are talking about creating content using audio.
Ongoing content creation is critical for success in the online world. Not only can it build the road for people to find you but it can also help to keep them engaged and coming back for more.
The more traffic you have coming to your site, the greater the chances are that your online business will become a success.
I know you are probably thinking, that sounds great, but where and how do I even begin creating content?
One of the quickest way to create content is through audio. Most of us have a lot of content in our heads. And we know if we could just get it out in the easiest way possible, we would have some great content to share with the world!
All you would do is record your content with audio then get that audio transcribed. Then you have a whole world of opportunities to do with that content from converting it into: articles, blog posts, products, free reports, ebooks, workbooks and more! The audio can also be used as: an audio ebook, podcast, etc.
Try these tips to get started:
1. Write some notes – Before I record any audios, I write out a list of notes or bullet points. When you see the specific bullet points on your notes it will trigger you to talk about that specific topic. You shouldn't need to write something out word for word.
2. Record your thoughts – Now record your thoughts in audio format. You can do this through a physical recording device or through your computer. The preferred format is MP3.
A great FREE tool to record your voice in MP3 format is MP3MyMP3
You simply download the software, then click the big red record button, and it automatically saves the files as an MP3 on your computer.
Note: If you are having a hard time recording your thoughts, ask a friend to interview you! Sometimes it's a lot easier if you ask a friend that can interview you to help bring this great information out of your head and into the world! If your friend needs to interview you over the phone you can use a free conference line service called www.freeconferencecall.com to record that interview!
3. Get your audio transcribed – Where can you find a transcriber? First lets visit my favorite site…www.fiverr.com. Listed below are some top rated transcribers (just search for their ids at fiverr.
4. Determine what you what to do with your new content – You can post your new content on your blog, turn it into a product, submit it as an article…the list goes on.
Creating content should not be as hard as some people want to think, especially with the easy tools to record and access to great transcribers…you have no excuse! Start recording 🙂
