❓ Unknown about this

Transcription - Excellent English grammar

What do I need to transcribe?

Software - Express Scribe (free)

Start general transcription training at LUSH DOLLAR.

Free info on how to get training before you start.

FREE - mini course beginner transcription w/ TranscribeAnywhere.

Apply on Upwork & GoTranscript (affil. link) & Working Spectrum. If you are less experienced and don't have a profile built up, you may not make very much, at first. Work is available, and you can easily make money. I would recommend applying to 7-10+ daily until you gain multiple clients. Can form long-lasting relationships that are lucrative.

💰 DON'T TAKE LESS than $0.50 per audio minute, after fees, especially if experienced and even if you are a beginner. This should be for very clear audio, no accents, no time coding, etc. Rates go up for all of these things. Rush orders are of highest pay. Don't sell yourself short. Be knowledgeable. Have your templates and samples ready.

Employer should pay fees, mostly. You can apply your fees paid toward your deductions on taxes. Legit employers/companies should expect to properly compensate you and understand the time it takes. TAT should be 24hrs or less for great reviews. Always proofread before sending completed work. Legit companies that pay well expect very good work for their money.

Speed - Great importance. If you can type out 60 audio minutes per hour, and the rate is $0.50 per audio minute, you only make $30 and could take you 4-6 hours to complete. Typing 60+ wpm is best. Time yourself and see. Set your templates.

Earning a minimum of $1.00 per audio minute is best and is only so much per hour depending on your speed and skill. Go for the rush jobs from legit companies and the time-coded video clips from the entertainment industry.

🔶 Make sure you only apply to employers who, at least, have their payment verified and may have even paid salaries. Beware of scammers.

5th Ave, New York, NY

Apply online and wait. Personal 5-years experience.

Pay is very good for the work. I worked both part-time and full-time.

💲 I pulled in about $1,000 a month just working part time.


Penn Foster is a custom-built digital learning platform with affordable cost. Penn Foster is accredited by the DEAC (Distance Education Accrediting Commission) and Cognia.

They are offering more than 100 self-paced and career-relevant programs.

Start medical transcription training at PENN FOSTER.

Business Op - Transcription services site

Can go very independent if you brand yourself with a website or blog and get yourself out there. Don't take less than about $0.75 per audio minute for very clear audio, no rush, no time coding, etc. List your business on ThumbTack and everywhere else. Very few professional services out there.

💲 Rates go up per $0.10 - $0.25, or more, per audio minute from there.

💲 Rush orders can be fixed rates or adjustable. You decide your rate increases.

💲 Do your math, and make sure your time is compensated.

You may see other services offering less, but the quality of the transcripts are not that good. I didn't take less than $0.75/minute and averaged $0.98 - $2.50/minute. I have ordered from TranscriptionPuppy (low quality) and have also worked with TranscribeMe, Rev and others. Don't waste your time or teach yourself that way.

I gained relationships with many different people through UpWork. I made the most with TranscriptDivas doing this for 7 years at home.

Become a top performer with your UpWork Profile, and the work offers will pour in. You can even earn enough to outsource the work (can be stressful).

Review good offers before you say you're too busy for new clients. They may be worth the outsource if you have a current project ending soon. Don't let the good ones go.

Positions listed are those that I have personally researched to verify legitimacy and realities and/or have done the work myself and earned money. None of this is get rich quick or MLM. There are some affiliate links that can help others, or I for overhead costs. No obligations, just information.

The work from home realm is a subject of great interest to many. Embark with helping others on their own journeys of working from home.
