This guide briefly goes over how to convert podcast to text blog. This is extremely helpful to transcribe video content such as video podcast interviews into text content.
Many content creators do this to basically create two versions of the same content, and here is how they do it.
Doing this is very easy, but you need the right software to do it right.
Use A Paid Transcription Software [The Easiest Way]
Assuming the audio is high quality, this transcription software can identify multiple speakers and transcribe verbatim what they say into organized text. A good transcriber can label which speaker said what to be organized and save editing time, especially on lengthy content.
Import the audio or video you want to transcribe. Examine the content and timestamp key content
Transcribe the content
Double-check the accuracy of the transcription before publishing the content
Copy the most important part of the transcription into a blog post
How To Format Transcribed Content In Blog
Audio content is different than blog content. For the most part, audio content is easier and faster to consume than reading.
Above all, blog posts are the perfect content for search engine optimization to be found in search. Keywords and paragraphs all contribute toward SEO ranking
-A well-executed Blog Post could potentially drive lots of traffic back into your marketing channels while also remaining an evergreen piece throughout long periods of time.
For the purpose of great blog content, we need to present the most important part of the transcription in the blog and remove the rest.
Reformat The Intro
It's best to post a snippet of the podcast description at the beginning of the blog post in italics to give readers a heads up on what they are about to read
Remove All Filler Words
First, delete all filler words like um, uh, er, ah, like, okay, right, and you know
If it's distracting from the rest of the content, then absolutely delete them all. In addition, fix all punctuation and grammar errors.
Having a tool like Grammarly can speed up grammar and spelling errors in bulk, and the editor can just go down the page and fix the highlighted parts.
Reformat The Content With Sections
Finally, break up the content so it's easily readable to the visitors. A blog usually flows from beginning to end in one continuous conversation while audio podcast content can be all over the place based on how people talk.
Each section should have visual elements to give the visitor a chance to take an eye break.
The worst content is the one filled with blocks of text that no one wants to even look at.
Add Necessary Call To Action
If the audio content ever mentions something about a product or service, this is the time to include a call to action to link to them.
This is a great opportunity to sell affiliate products, direct sales, or generate leads. Be sure not to overdo it on the blog.
Optimize The Content For SEO
Do an overall assessment of the content and narrow it down to its main focus. This is important to extract a keyword or phrase the blog is about for the search engine to index.
We highly recommend using a keyword research tool and figuring out whether your transcribed audio content can be represented by a keyword with search volume.
Lastly, embed the original audio or video content within the blog post to show relevance to the search engine.
Doing it this way creates a link flow between the video content to the blog and vice versa.
