Today, a famous Indonesian blogger made a video about us and we immediately responded by introducing Indonesian language version!
How is it possible?
We use ConveyThis website translator and it works amazingly fast! The first layer is pre-translated with an automatic translator and then you can bring a linguist to post edit it!
Transcribe more audios and videos in Indonesian with GGLOT!
We've launched google ads for gglot.com in two new languages: Spanish and Chinese.
Spanish is targeted in over 20 countries: Argentina, Spain, Honduras, Belize, Venezuela just to name a few.
While Chinese is targeted mostly at Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan as the mainland is block by the Chinese firewall. The pleasant hack? The cost per click in Spanish speaking countries is ten times lower than in the US! 🇺🇸
When I received this letter, I was blown away. The TinySeed folks has rejected GGLOT and didn't even care to provide feedback!
Here is their letter:
"Hi Alex ,
Thank you so much for taking the time to apply to TinySeed.
We’re sorry to say we will not be moving forward with your application at this time. The competition for this batch was intense, and we hope you don’t take this as a reflection of the future success of your business or idea — we had to reject an incredible number of exciting businesses.
Unfortunately, due to the number of applications we receive, we are unable to give individual feedback. It’s worth noting that we encourage everyone to re-apply in future application periods, especially if your business has grown in between. We know we miss great businesses every round, and would love to see you apply again.
Thanks for your interest in TinySeed, and wish you the best of luck moving your business forward.
It’s been quite a productive journey.
Launched on March 13th, 2020 – Gglot.com has started to gain new users with an increasing speed.
First, it was paid ads. During Covid-19 lockdown, lots of advertisers ceased their marketing efforts and focused on cost cutting and PPP loans. Check out our previous article on how we’ve elegantly managed to gain initial traction with Google Ads.
Second, came the Youtube and its incredible value as a source of referral traffic. We’ve tried to maintain our own channel, but it was time consuming and expensive. So, we’ve refocused on purchasing paid reviews from influencers.
Lastly, came in search engine optimization (SEO). It is a long-term focus strategy, but it works. Our website is built on WordPress and we use RankMath SEO plugin for its online marketing. The language translator ConveyThis is compatible with RankMath and it helps us gain lots of traffic from non-English countries such as Poland, Russia, Brazil, Italy, German and so on. So, the SEO does pretty well and attached graph below demonstrates the momentum.
It's exciting that our under one year old baby GGLOT has grew to $2,000 MRR this month and we have applied for funding to TinySeed accelerator.
It is mind boggling to see how people love our product and find it useful for their daily lives. With GGLOT, users convert audio and video files into text and extract useful text transcripts to further use in their businesses. One great application: transcribe phone conversation of your employees and check for the stop words instead of listening to hours of audio. Way more efficient!
Seems like the ride is going pretty smoothly. We've been successful by offering something that people need and use in their daily lives (video and audio captions and transcriptions) and willing to pay for it.
Secret? We believe it is just a fluck, lol. But, hey, maybe you believe it is not! Ask us questions!
Just two days after the launch. Someone has signed up and place a first order! This is really exciting!
The idea was to put up a website using WordPress theme which we bought for $29. We slightly customized it, setup the landing page, laucned Google Ads and boom! Someone signed up and paid!
Gglot offers low cost (cheap) audio and video transcription service in over 60 languages. It exists to fill in the need with quick and inexpensive way of converting audio and video meetings into text to save meaning.
