Self Employment Opportunity: Transcribing For A Living In Nigeria by drawnobet(m): 7:16pm On Jun 25, 2019
Yes you can be self employed anywhere you are in the country transcribing for a living.

This thread will teach you everything you need to know to start up and the tools needed to deliver the goods.

You would need

1. A PC, tab or mobile phone
2. Affordable internet connection
3. Good head phones
4 Good command of English

Everything else can be learned on this thread. For those of us who have already started transcribing, we're welcome to share our ideas here so that this can be our online community.

To avoid this thread being banned, kindly let us adhere to all the rules of Nairaland.

Should we want to share screenshots, kindly let's block the company and important call info.

Also all forms of advertising is prohibited and will be reported.

Edited 9/7/2019 posted by samsard for newbies. Once you master these, the rest go easy

E.g
Rep: I was gonna, uhmmm, I was gonna tell ya about, about the new product we launched.
What they need: I was going to tell you about the new product we launched.

Punctuation: Hello, Philip. It's Emily calling from CLH Group. How're you doing today?
Cust: I'm fine, thank you. And how are you?

Longer calls will be more complex in terms of punctuation but for a start
A comma before and after a name in mid sentence. A comma before or after a name in salutation.
You're also allowed MINOR corrections for making clear transcripts.
Anyway, read through the FAQ and regularly Consult it while working at least till you acquaint yourself with it's detail

All full company names, PayPal email addresses and screenshots that include confidential company information must not be shared on this thread and will be reported

Slack is the work place community where you can get to connect with other transcribers and moderators who can help you resolve any issues or questions. Just sign-up and the bot will put you through.

For the PayPal, you can follow this link to learn how to do that https://drive.google.com/file/d/1L1TiijdFxxx81cj8a1q5rXZAjeidcQyC/view?usp=drivesdk after opening the PayPal account, go to your nearest UBA branch and tell them you want the international Africard. That's the card you'll use to get your funds directly from PayPal. Please note that you must always log into the Lesotho PayPal using the link provided in the document.

Take some time to read the FAQ and help before you start your first job. It is extremely important.

A lot of things could have been wrong from misheard words to punctuation. You can try again with another email. Listen to the first few lines and type what you think you heard here. We will send you the full transcript so that you can get onboard immediately. Cheers

Hey, yeah, as about discounts, we aren't really offering it to our monthly members, but we do have a five percent discount off the annual package, considering you've been a member for nine months, it might make sense to switch over to an, the annual package, we can parade the previous nine months. Is that something you'll be interested in? Happy to make that change for you.

this was what I did initially and what is being asked of me again. pls help

You are not opening a UBA account. You just need to get their Africard. Go with a passport photo and your ID to get it same day, but make sure you tell them that you want the international one

You can actually use your MasterCard and other banks Visa cards or even virtual cards to withdraw to your bank account but we have found out that the Africard works best.

You can start work right away after opening the Lesotho or UAE PayPal even before adding your card. You can even start before opening your PayPal account. All you need do is indicate the email you will be using for the paypal account on the platform and start work. If the paypal account is yet to be opened and you get sent a payment, paypal will send you a notification mail. It is just advisable that you get it all up and running before you start.

Hey, yeah, so you asked about discounts? We don't really offer any to our monthly members, but we do have 5% discount off the annual package, considering you've been a member for nine months and might make sense to switch over to in the annual package, we can prorate the previous nine months.
