New Transcription Rates to attract our Ideal Clients

This post is to announce that our new transcription rates come into effect from some time ago! Please check out the new rate on our Services page.

Ideal Transcription Rates to attract our Ideal Clients

As you might know, we’ve been experimenting with our transcription rates for some time now and we’ve come to the conclusion that you attract your ideal clients with your rates. If you rates are low and cheap, you generally attract the wrong crowd.

In the outsourcing world of transcription, there are many places online to outsource your transcriptions cheap. Dirt cheap. And, we don’t even want to mention them on my blog, do we? $10 for an hour of audio?!!

The problem with attracting the wrong clients is not only that the rates are low, it’s more because we won’t have the energy or time to build this business if we keep on serving the Wrong Clients. They are draining! They consume more time and energy on the while than serving your Ideal Clients.

We did not get into this small business venture to have another JOB. We are trying to run a business – a sustainable and profitable business that grows. A business that can help many more people.

We don’t need hundreds of clients. All we need is a couple of our ideal clients. Clients who know what we stand for. Clients who appreciate our work and our time. Most importantly, clients who appreciate their own time and quality services.

For that reason it’s all the more important to set my rates higher to attract my ideal client.

Our NEW Standard Transcription Rate is $1.25/audio minute. That is, $75 per audio hour.

Now, I’ve been thinking about attracting and working with my ideal clients and customers for some time now. I have tasted the wonderful feeling of working with ideal clients with people like Chris Guthrie of MakeMoneyOnTheInternet.com and Pete Tormey, a US attorney. Well, Pete even went as far as to say, “Your level of service is excellent. It was a pleasure to work with you because of your high level of responsiveness.” And, Chris said,“Carey is perfect.”

I didn’t do anything different for these clients that I did for my Wrong Clients. In fact, I spent more time and effort on my Wrong clients. That’s why it’s vital to work with your ideal clients. It makes your life so much richer knowing that you make others happy with your work and you’re making enough to be able to forward to better days.

Now, the new rates are more inline with our philosophy for our business. I’ve realized for some time now that you gotta get paid your Ideal Rates to build your business and that can only happen with your ideal clients. Our ideal clients are the blood of our business. Without them we have no chance.

We have been fortunate enough to work with successful bloggers, attorneys, students and entrepreneurs for the last couple of years. And, we want to continue serving people who understand what we stand for.

English to Burmese, English to Chin Translation Services: Now Open!

Due to high demand in Chin translation services we are now opening translation services.

This is the first ever and only online translation services for Chin languages. So contact us for any translation you need on the Chin languages.

Chin languages are spoken in the Chin State of Myanmar (Burma), a country under military rule.

Translation services we offer are:

  • English to Burmese translation
  • Burmese to English translation
  • English to Chin translation
  • Chin to English translation
Of late there has been many queries to me about Chin translation.Contact us for any Chin languages translations, now!

Although there are many translation services around the world, they don’t have first language speakers in Chin language. So these translation services/companies often contact me on sub-contract basis. So, I thought customers will save by dealing directly with me and getting their translation done by me. Also they get native speakers of the languages to work for them.
Since Chin itself is not a single language our services include the major Chin languages or dialects.
That means, we have:
  • English to Tedim Chin translation services
  • English to Haka Chin translation (Note: Haka is often written as Khalkha as well)
  • English to Falam Chin translation
  • Tedim Chin to English translation (Note: Tedim is often written as Tiddim or Teddim as well)
  • Haka Chin to English translation
  • Falam Chin to English translation
  • Burmese to English translation
  • English to Burmese translation
Why us?
  • Native Chin language speakers as translators
  • Very reasonable rates as compared to translation companies without native speakers
  • Quicker turnaround time
  • Payment via Paypal – easy and secure.
How to contact us?
  • Contact us via our contact form.
  • Mention your source language and the language you want translated to – eg. English to Tedim Chin, Haka Chin or Falam Chin or vice versa.
  • Please mention your budget so we save time and effort getting back and forth on price/rates.
  • Also mention the format you want the translation in eg MS Word, PDF or Text.
