Well this is a tricky question.
This is going to be different depending on your circumstances.
Here’s some guidance to help you choose which transcription company is going to be best for you to work with.
What is your typing speed? This is important as you want to make it worth your while so make sure your speed is above 80 wpm and very importantly accuracy is pretty darn 100%.
Which fields are you qualified to work in? Find a specialist transcription company for that industry, i.e. property, legal, medical, etc.
It is going to be much easier for you and better for the clients if you already know that field.
How many hours do you want to work? Many transcription service providers will be flexible as long as you know what you can do – work out what you can really do and talk to transcription companies that fit you (as above) with that in mind.
Do you want to work from home? Many transcription service providers are well set up to enable remote working but do check with your preferred company that this is a way they are happy to work.
So, if you can find a transcription company in your specialist field that ticks all your boxes, including a rate of pay that you are happy with, that’s the best one for you!
Do bear in mind that even though you may be working remotely, the transcription company will be investing time and effort training you to their systems and it may take a few weeks for you both to feel it is the right role for you, so expect a training period.
Also you may need to supply your own transcription equipment and make sure you have a good PC with virus protection and up-to-date software with plenty of hard drive space!
