Better Business Management: The 5 Things You Should Have Transcribed

In business, it’s often important to have an accurate record of conversations that occur. You know you can’t rely on your memory, but you may not have time to take notes when you’re participating in a heated or heavyweight discussion. Besides, even the best note taker may not accurately capture everything.41334707_s

Save time and trouble by having these five conversations transcribed:

  1. Meetings — Whether it’s a board meeting or a staff meeting, a lot of discussion takes place. Sure, someone can take notes to capture the high points, but a lot of it may be lost. Let your team focus on taking part in the discussion by recording and then transcribing the meeting. You can then provide both notes and the recording to later prove a point, provide clarity, or offer the minutes to those who could not attend.
  2. Phone Calls — Phone call interviews with potential job candidates or important conversations among high-level executives may need to be recalled later. Transcribing it leaves no room for wondering exactly what was said by whom.
  3. Webinars — Your webinar team has created a great presentation. Repurpose that creative content for blog posts and the company enewsletter by having the entire presentation transcribed.
  4. Presenters/Speakers — Bringing in an expert to chat with your team? Make sure everyone has the chance to learn, even if they can’t attend. Record the presentation and have it transcribed so employees can access the information whichever way is convenient.
  5. Client Notes — When you’re meeting with a client, you want to focus on him or her and the needs presented. While you may take notes, busy business owners know that a transcription is an invaluable way to make sure the entire conversation can be referenced later. Financial advisers and insurance agents are just two types of workers who put transcriptions to good use.
