Choosing the Right Keyword for Your Blog Post

Before we dive into the AI magic, let’s start with a crucial step: selecting the right keyword First thing is you’re going to have to decide on your keyword, your search phrase, your key phrase. There’s so many different ways of saying it. If you’ve already optimized your video using tools like TubeBuddy or vidIQ, you can use the same keyword for your blog post. Consistency is key here, as it helps search engines understand the relevance of your content. If you’re unsure about the keyword, don’t worry. The AI tools I’ll introduce later can help you figure it out.

Transforming Your Video Transcript

Now, let’s talk about the core process of turning your video into a blog post. Begin with a clean, corrected transcript of your video. There are several ways to get this transcript, and it depends on your workflow. One popular tool for this is Descript, which makes the process easy and seamless. Another option is Premiere Pro, which allows you to correct and download your transcript from there. When you have it corrected, you can export it by hitting the three dots and go to export. Choose the CSV option and highlight all of the column. Copy and paste that into a text document so it’s all one fluid flowing transcript.

A hidden gem is YouTube itself – it transcribes your video for free. Go to your video, click on the three dots, and select “show transcript.” Copy the transcript and paste it into a text document. Alternatively, you can use an AI-powered tool like Castmagic, which not only transcribes your video but also offers a range of other AI features.

Leveraging AI with Castmagic

Castmagic allows you to upload your video or paste your YouTube link, and it transcribes the content for you. You can even select yourself as the speaker, edit as needed, and then download the corrected text. But here’s where the magic happens – Castmagic also provides a wealth of AI-generated content options. It suggests titles, keywords, an introduction, time stamps, Q&A sections, key topics, and more.

These AI-generated elements are gold for your blog post. They provide you with structure, relevant content, and help you cover the essential points your audience might be interested in. It’s like having an AI content creator at your side, making your job much easier.

Building Your Blog Post

Now that you have your corrected transcript, it’s time to turn it into a blog post. It’s not about writing a post from scratch; think of it as building upon a foundation that’s already there. You have two options here. You can use an all-in-one prompt like Chat GPT, which can help generate content based on your keyword and transcript. Alternatively, you can use the AI-generated content from Castmagic to shape your post.

Let’s talk about the importance of the title. Remember, no cutesy or clever titles here. You want a clear and SEO-optimized title that tells readers what to expect. Use your keyword naturally in the title for the best results. The introduction should be short, specific, and also SEO optimized. It’s the hook that draws readers in, and it’s crucial for search engine visibility.

Don’t forget to include relevant links. Internal links to other blog posts or videos you’ve created can keep readers engaged and help with SEO. Also, consider affiliate links if appropriate. Yoast SEO, a popular WordPress plugin, can help you optimize your post further, suggesting improvements for readability, keyword distribution, and more.
