How To Become A Vendor For TO&A

Frequently we get inquiries from vendors offering to provide videography, interpreting and other services. While most of those services are provided by us on an in-house basis, now and then we are able to partner with another business in order to serve our clients...

Here's a recent letter I got from just such a business:

(I'm) inquiring as to how we go about becoming a video vendor for you? We're in the LA area, and we schedule video nationwide and worldwide. A full info pack was sent to your firm on 9/11/07. Can you please let us know how we may be added to your vendor list? Best regards, ### ###.

First, thank you for writing to us. As noted above, we typically provide video services to our clients by using our own team. However, there are some busy days ahead and we might need a service like yours. You've already done an important step. You sent us your information pack. Then you followed up via email and not a telephone call. I don't know how other court reporting agencies work in this regard, but I for one would rather have an email than a phone call for this type of inquiry.

Next step is for us to review your work and get to you know you. We'll never just send someone out to service our clients sight unseen!

Dear Mr. Olivas,

I am a freelance transcriptionist/legal secretary with 20 years of experience and am interested in securing a position to allow me to work from home. If you are looking to outsource any transcription assignments, please let me know, and I will be happy to submit my resume for your review.

Thank you for your consideration, and I hope to hear from you soon.

Hi! How much do court reporters typically make in Northern California and are there even jobs to be had here?
