Before I can illustrate how to make money withTranscription, I would like to bring it to your attention that this is not aget rich quick scheme. You will have to put in some effort to get a decent income.Now, let's get down to how you can actually make this kind of money throughTranscription.
First, whatis Transcription?
Transcriptionis basically the conversion of audio to text format by typing it out to word ortext format.
You getpaid to Transcribe interviews, meetings, and focus groups according to someguidelines given by the network you are working for.
Companieshire transcriptionists on a regular basis to transfer their digital copy intowritten documents.
Once acompany hires you, they give you a transcription account. Transcriptionaccounts are networks/platforms where clients and transcribers are connected.Basically, when a client needs his or her audio transcribed, they go to anetwork, post a job, and now transcribers in the network can see the variousaudios available.
There aretwo types of transcription accounts.
1. Accountslike Rev account, Focus Forward, and verbit. With this type of account, youonly need to do a test, and after you pass, you get access to their worklist.An account like these means you'll be getting to have access to jobs 24/7whenever you log in to your account. You can work whenever you want, wherever.The accounts have dashboards with many jobs. When you log in, you just chooseaudio and do it
2. Thesecond type of account is a bidding account. With this one, it’s a platformfilled with many clients who need their audios transcribed.
So, aclient posts a job, and you give a proposal on your terms for the job, and ifthe client likes it, you get the job, and if you do a good one, that client isyours to keep.
I recommendhaving Account number 1 since there are always jobs, and those are the accountsI will show you how to open in the free E-book at the end of this article.

As you cansee above, there are many audios that need transcribing. Jobs are always there24/7 except late December.
The averagepay of a transcriber is Sh8,000 to Sh15,000 weekly, depending on where you'regetting your audios. This is because one is paid an average of Sh2,200 toSh3,500 to transcribe an audio hour, which takes you on average 8 hours tofinish.
Hence, an average of Sh2,200 per day dependingon your effort.
Most of the above companies pay weekly as you can see below.
For you tostart transcribing and getting paid, you will have to apply for an account thatinvolves a short test of fewer than 10 minutes. If you are accepted, you getaccess to jobs on a regular basis.
