Day 14 - Transcribing Your Podcast
Hearing your podcast is great, but reading it is just as good. By transcribing your podcast, you offer an additional way for people to consume your content. Better yet, you can develop an additional income as you can offer the transcripts of your podcast for sale (many talk shows on TV use this approach).
There are a ton of companies that offer podcast transcription services. The ones below are just a sample.
