Cut market research costs + improve your output

Imagine this: you’ve spent the whole day running focus groups for your latest client, you’re utterly exhausted, and the last thing you want to do is sit down and relive it all over again. But that’s what you’ll have to do if you want transcripts of all those sessions ready for tomorrow morning, right?

Like turning water into wine

Imagine if you could hire somebody else who could take all those hours of audio recordings off your hands and turn them into beautifully accurate transcripts. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? Well, it turns out dreams do come true, because that’s what our Take Note fairies (more commonly known as transcribers) do when you hire us.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: why would I shell out money to someone else when I could do all if that myself? That’s a fair question, and the answer to that is that, if you hire us, you’re more likely to end up saving money! No, that’s not the fairy dust talking, that’s simply the truth.

When to prioritise YOUR work

Our transcribers can type at speeds of over 100 words per minute, which is 60% faster than the average human. (I DID say they were fairies!) It takes them approximately four hours to transcribe an hour of audio. And if it takes our professional transcribers that long, imagine how much longer it would take you whilst also doing your day job.

When you’ve recovered from that horrible thought, imagine everything else you could be doing with that time. Why would you spend several days transcribing all your audio files when you could be focusing on your actual job?

If you send your audio over to us, we can have a complete transcript back with you as quickly as the same day or the following morning, meaning that not only are you saving yourself the hassle of typing the transcripts yourself, but you can get started on the next step of your project much sooner.

And if you need to get your transcripts even more quickly, then you can hire one of our live note takers and have a draft copy of your focus group transcript ready the moment the session ends. That way, you can get to work on analysing the research straight away, before receiving the full, polished transcript the next morning. Now, if that’s not magic, I don’t know what is!


The law and the clock and the Queen (and her English) are all on your side

Now, you might think that all sounds great, but I’ve saved the best for last.
Our team are so wonderful that they will not just transcribe your audio for you, but will also ensure those transcripts are accurate, unbiased, and proofread documents, with time code corresponding to your audio, and with every moment captured in easy-to-read prose. So, all those ums, errs, stumbles, and repetitions will be replaced with a perfect account written in the Queen’s best English, sent back to you in no time at all.

So, when you next find yourself faced with the daunting prospect of transcribing, just think of all that time and money you would save if you hired us. Our fairies will be waiting!
