Hi, it’s time to digitize.
Now we are exploring a little trick on how to create blogs, articles, posts for social media, and more with just 1 set of videos that you make.
Here we go.
The secret is this:
What is it?
Well, it is when you extract everything you said in a video and write it down.
You can let that be done with professional services that charge either by the word or the minute, or you can hire a fiverr.com freelancer to do it for a smaller fix price.
How to get your transcription without paying an expensive service:
Microsoft’s Speech to Text feature in Office 365 or any Word version.
What you need to do is talking into your microphone while the Speech to Text tool is running and after edit the text.
That can be a bit tedious and will take you a while, but in the end, you have what you said in writing.
Yes, the cool thing is, it is creating subtitles on autopilot for you.
You upload your video to your channel.
If you don’t have one, create one. It’s free.
Then you upload your video with the setting in private, so only you can see it.
After that, you wait.
About 5-10 minutes.
Then you can access your uploaded video, hit edit video, then navigate to the point with subtitles and transcriptions.
And check the automatically generated caption.
“Before you save your automatic transcription do this:”
Before you jump heads over into the download of the subtitle.
Here are two things you need to know.
1.It would be best if you edited the subtitle first. Youtube isn’t perfect and guesses many words rather than understanding it correctly. (it’s a machine after all)
2.After cleaning it up, hit the Action button on the left and save your subtitles in any format you want. Then save and leave the page.
Now open your downloaded subtitles.
Delete all the timestamps in it.
The actual work begins now.
You need to structure and edit the text.
Make it readable… we talk nothing like what we would write.
After seeing hundreds of my transcriptions… it’s just crazy.
When you are done editing and refining your transcription, you can use it for anything.
Depending on your video length, you need to calculate about 50% of the duration of the video on top for you to transcribe it and then an additional hour per 500 words for proper editing.
After that, you could have a full book out of a 1-hour video.
With that, you can create many posts, your quotes, excerpts, social media postings, blogs, articles, short content that you then turn into smaller videos again, and so much more.
Go ahead and start with a first short video and see how you can transform it into so much more.
