Our Clients’ Stories | Questions to ask your VA

Our Clients’ Stories 

To demonstrate how you can utilise our services and to give an idea of cost-effectiveness, we’ve outlined below some case study examples of work we’ve done recently for our valued clients.

The task: Telemarketing / database creation 
What we did: 9 hours over the course of six weeks – researched potential customers, gathered the details, followed up with calls and created user-friendly Excel database with all info. Passed this on to our client who then did a mass cut and paste of the email addresses gathered for a brief follow-up email to all, and et voilà, effective marketing to around 200 potential leads.
Cost: All for around £160!

The task: Survey Monkey – Survey creation and maintenance
What we did: 13 hours of admin time perfecting four long and complex in-depth surveys. Saved the client considerable time and effort as these can be tricky and require thorough testing before making them available to complete.
Cost: Just over £200

The task: Blog article drafting
What we did: Two hours drafting a blog article collating best tips from previous articles. I’m trained in editing and also a keen writer, and lover of the English language, and relish these types of task! If you’re looking to buy time and rehash or recap while you’re thinking up new material, this can be a good way to keep your readership and followers engaged meanwhile – plus other ideas can often be sparked from just revisiting and reviewing.
Cost: £36

The task: Editing and proofreading
What we did: Looked at 36-page e-book a long-standing client had created, edited and proofread so it was ready for publishing.
Cost: £36

The task: Typing
What we did: As well as PA and admin type duties, we also carry out a lot of typing! We take many hours each month and pride ourselves on always returning on or before the deadline and to the highest standards. Examples of work provided: medico-legal reports; medical correspondence; legal correspondence and file notes; CVs; interview recordings; PDF to Word conversions (involves tidying up formatting). We also take on regular copy typing handwritten docs and data entry tasks – of all shapes and sizes!
Cost: From 80p per recorded audio minute

Hopefully this gives an insight into what we do all day! And it proves that you can use our service as and when you need it – there’s no commitments or packages to consider or anything like that – you simply pay for the time you use and you can cap this at any figure you would like. We work to your budget!

So if you require any of the above, travel planning, even organisation, bookings, catering organisation, meeting room bookings, database creation or management, data entry, podcast transcription (the list goes on – hopefully you get the idea!) then just drop us an email or a call, we’d be happy to discuss how we can help. We are resourceful, well established and have access to lots of local and national resources, as well as lots of great ideas – just ask us!

Podcast Transcription

Podcast Transcription

Podcasts! They’re great: people can listen to what they want, when they want. I love them and listen to them regularly myself. Delivering your product or content in as many platforms as possible is a great way to help expand your business and reach a wider audience. At Outsource-Typing, we specialise in transcribing audio and can convert your podcasts into a transcript document for you to use on your website, to send to subscribers, whatever you want! 

A growing number of people are looking to have their podcasts, webinars and YouTube videos transcribed (typed up), recognising a variety of benefits:

Enhances search engine optimisation (SEO) – content from the transcript can be used on your website, blog or social media, or the actual document or text uploaded to your site, providing lots of new and regular content for search engines to crawl which boosts SEO

Reaches wider audiences – the hearing impaired or those unable to display audio/video content (e.g. due to IT restrictions)

Reaches people with time constraints – some people may find it easier to read the transcript document or content

Reaches foreign audiences – easily translatable into any language from the written transcribed content

Produces cross-selling / marketing opportunities – use the typed content to create lead-magnet freebies (e.g. e-books, reports, guides, mini-courses, etc.)

Makes content readily available – quote or use content in any way you want for your blog, website or on social media, etc., and include links to any websites or products mentioned

Enables smartphone/tablet users on the go to browse the written content using less data as opposed to listening/watching, enticing them to come back and listen/subscribe later – no opportunities missed!

Keeping your “content profile” updated regularly with new information and links provides the best chance at staying afloat in the search engine ratings, making sure people can find you!  Content can easily be used on your site for blogging and social media posts or marketing products, services, events or other important messages.

We’re trained and qualified in editing and proofreading so your work will always be word-perfect. Contact us at fiona@outsource-typing.com for further info.
