All you need to create content is your mobile phone and a virtual assistant
I have found an android app which makes it even more easy to record blog posts on the run. It is called SkyRecorder.
Why Is This App So Cool?
The cool thing about this app is I need only 2 taps to:
- Create a recording,
- Upload it to my Dropbox,
- Have it transcribed,
- And uploaded to my blog
Each Step in Detail:
Step 1 – I open my app.
Step 2 – I tap on Start Recording.
Step 3 – I record my blog post.
This can be anywhere. It can be in my car, I don’t need my hands. It can be anywhere when an idea strikes me.
Step 4 – Tap a second time to stop the recording. That’s all!
Step 5 – The app synchronizes with my Dropbox in case wireless LAN is available. That’s important because it doesn’t use my data connection too much only when I’m having wireless available. Then the app synchronizes with my Dropbox right away.
Step 6 – My Dropbox folder where the recording is synchronized to, is being shared with my virtual assistant.
Step 7 – My virtual assistant sends the recording to my transcriptionist.
Step 8 – My transcriptionist creates a transcript from the blog post.
Step 9 – My virtual assistant proofreads, illustrates, integrates the post and creates it on my website.
Step 10 – The work is done.
Time Savings of At Least 90%
I think it’s a conservative estimate to say that I save 90% of my time when I’m creating blog posts this way.
Sure, the blog posts are not as crafty as an article where I’ve sit an hour above and re-wrote and re-edited it without end. But it is a valuable written content.
Record Your Ideas While They Are Fresh
How often have you had an epiphany – a moment of absolute genius?
A great thought that crossed your mind. Did you have a pencil and paper ready to jot that thought down?
If yes, did you do it every time?
How many good ideas have been lost forever because you didn’t have a tool handy to push that great idea out into the world?
Well, for me, I feel I have found the solution.
The combination of great gadgets, the never endingly useful tool, Dropbox, and a clever use of a team of virtual assistants makes great productivity and works that content creation possible for me.
What do you say? Is this a method you would like to use?
