What is Podcast Transcription?
In the digital era, when someone already has a podcast, the main goal is to reach as many listeners and subscribers (or followers) as possible. But search engines fail to effectively include audio, video and other media files in their top search results (relying mainly on metadata and text accompanying the media). So what if you were to convert all your podcasts into transcribed text? You are opening yourself to the possibility for the search engines to include you in their top engine searches, by making your podcast easily accessible.
Transcription is the printed or written format of a video, audio, etc. By transcribing the podcast, you are adding to your audio or video a text too, which can help in reaching a bigger audience, therefore gaining more subscribers (or followers). By having a podcast transcription you can now be easily found by a targeted group of people through the search engines, more so than when you had only audio or video.

Why is Important to Transcript Your Podcast Services?
Gain more SEO
Audio or video content is harder to be found on search engines compared to text. Having the podcasts to be transcribed would effectively mean that the owner would be generating more traffic to the website, since the text becomes easily searchable, thus reaching more audience. People are likely to stumble upon the transcribed podcasts while browsing the web related to contents which the podcasts deliver. The search engines pick up keywords and making your podcast easily accessed by the targeted group.
It may be that the individual is not able to decide as to what is to be placed on the blog. The transcription can be copied, pasted and an instant blog is created, with no room for thoughts. One can also use their podcast transcript for creating newsletter content for the list or numerous short articles within a short period of time.
Creating products from transcripts
As the individual has few transcripts, then it is essential to have an e-book. It creates a good amount of revenue for the person and more possible ways towards generative revenue from the podcast.
Attracting a huge audience
Although many people prefer watching a video or listening to the audio, there are still many who prefer to read the text. They might be in a hurry or might not have enough time to listen to the whole show for instance. But reading contents can reduce and save time.
When you have several podcasts, the individual may remember saying something but is not able to remember as to which podcast was it. It could cause the person to spend a few hours trying to find the right podcast so that a reference can be made. By having a transcript, the individual simply is required to search through text by using keywords or references which can only take a minute.
It’s helpful for hearing-impaired
Some people who are hard of hearing or deaf, prefer to read the text instead. That’s when the transcript podcast comes to help, making it accessible even for those who are hearing-impaired and do not want to miss the podcast nevertheless.
