Last week, we talked at length about finding legit and constant transcription clients. This week, I’m going to share with you my top 4 Transcription Forums that I follow. This is after you’ve gotten a few jobs, gotten your feet wet now it’s time to get social. Get to find out what other transcription service providers are doing to get ahead and to be on top. These are the best places to find and interact with fellow transcribers are forums. Enjoy!
In my opinion, this is a must-have for anyone aspiring to be or is already a transcriber. Transcription Essentials says that they are the most comprehensive transcription resource on the web and I can vouch for that. They have a wealth of information about companies that hire Independent Contractors, with or without experience, for General, Legal, and Medical transcription. They have company reviews where you are able to see if the company you’re interested in pays on time, how much you’re likely to make depending on your pay rate and how many hours per week you have free. Also they do a really thorough screening when registering to avoid any spam. Nothing compares.
This is another great place to find more transcription opportunities. They mainly focus on helping work-at-home moms run successful businesses online. They have a section for asking questions on any topic. They have a section for promoting your business, if you have one. Also, they can give you ideas on how to set up one. And I think it’s only wise to create a transcription business once you have your feet on the ground.
This is a job board for both transcribers and transcription companies. Once you sign up you have the option of updating your profile with the necessary information so the clients can reach out to you easily and hire you. They also send daily updates to their members for available job openings.
