Web Site Content - Dictation
Dictation for Web Site Content
Search Engines today increasingly look for unique, new and regularly updated content to produce good results. Online content presents business leaders with an excellent marketing opportunity to promote their company.
It's challenging and difficult for anyone to keep their web site content updated while running a business. Using your voice to prepare essential web site content can set you and your business up for online success beyond imagination.
Dictation is a useful way for business people to create their web site content. Business executives have used dictation as a primary tool in managing their business communications for years. From the days when secretaries were also shorthand stenographers and dicta-typists to the present day where a small digital device can be used to capture thoughts, letters, briefings and ideas dictation has played an important role in business communication.
Extending the concept of content dictation for websites takes this tried and trusted business tool to the next level.
Dictate the content you want included on your next website or business blog update, whether it is a general news release, an article describing the benefits of a product, or new information for the front page of the site, dictation can be an easy way to accomplish it.
Transcription of Web Content Dictation
Once the dictation is complete, just send it to a transcriber who will provide a hard copy of the content, which can then be edited or corrected. Once again dictation can be used to instruct the transcriber regarding layout, line spacing, font family required etc. An experienced transcriber can also transcribe the text in a suitable format for your web site content manager to place directly into the web pages, saving both time and money.
Once you are happy with the new content your web manager can take the article and load it onto the site. If a holistic web management service is used, like the service Graphicline offers, the transcriber and the content manager will work hand in hand to make sure the new information is correctly posted to the web. A proof reader will proof the web site content manager’s work to ensure that no mistakes or typos have crept in during the process.

Web Content Dictation - Tools
Often there is no need to obtain a dedicated recorder. Most modern cell phones have a recording function built in- the advantage of cell phone recording being that we have become so used to cell phones that their use is almost second nature. Care needs to be taken, however to control external sounds when using a cell phone for dictation as the recorded sound quality is often inferior to that of a dedicated dictation device.
If the phone you have does not have a recording function, or if you prefer a dedicated dictation device, they are inexpensive and can be as small as the size of a finger.
Every business person wanting their website to succeed in the highly competitive battle to get placed high up in search engine results should consider the benefits that dictation for web site content can bring to their organisation.
