Many experts predict voice to be the future of search. With voice-activated assistants on our phones, in our cars, and even in our homes, the world does seem to be embracing the hands-free approach to browsing. For businesses, that means a shift in your marketing approach and the way you reach your audience, and our team are here to help you do it. Using the advanced Alexa Smart Speaker, we can ensure you're not left behind when voice search becomes the new normal.
Innovative Way to Reach More Users
Alexa is becoming increasingly commonplace in homes. Designed for convenient voice search, customers use it to replace searches that they would have typed into their phone or laptop. These searches are often quick queries, like looking for a restaurant near them or the nearest shop that sells a specific item. Alexa's are also being used to buy products, with users being able to order online without ever picking up a device. When we optimise your company to be favoured by Alexa, just like SEO for Google, we make it more likely that you'll be the first recommendation for a product or service. Users trust Alexa’s recommendations and are looking for a quick answer, giving you a competitive edge. This opens you up to a much wider audience and could even diversify your demographic, helping you thrive in the modern world.
Scalable With the Right Tools
We can link your Alexa to other tools available on Amazon Web Services, creating a scalable device to reach many users. To do this, we’ll use Amazon’s Lambada tool. The Lambada functions give us the freedom to customise your Alexa and add new skills depending on your needs, helping to create a device that’s unique to your business. We can also link your Alexa to your AWS cloud, allowing you to access data stored here straight from your Alexa Smart Speaker.
Link With Your IoT
As soon as you connect your Alexa to a WiFi connection, it becomes part of your Internet of Things (IoT). Over this network, your Alexa and other connected devices can transmit data and interact with each other, creating an efficient system to cover your business needs. We'll help set up your devices and configure their settings to suit you and your environment. You can then use your Alexa and other devices to track data (particularly from customers), identify issues, and work more productively. We'll also set you up with one main device which all of your others, like your Alexa, can connect to. From this device, you can easily track, monitor, and manage your entire IoT setup.
Trigger Commands Across Services
Alexa is an incredibly versatile business device that can improve efficiency. We can programme your Alexa to become a common interface across your business processes, linking it to your CRM system or stock control, for example. By integrating these platforms, you’ll have one central device to trigger your company's commands using only your voice. This is especially useful when one task requires multiple platforms. Rather than logging into each one to carry out individual tasks, you can do everything you need to quickly from your Alexa.
Control Business Data Easily
From managing your calendar to checking orders, you can control your business data easily from your Alexa without having to leave your desk, sofa, or dining room table. With a busy schedule, you shouldn't underestimate the importance of convenience. By checking your data when you need to, you avoid forgetting the task, wasting time locating files, or checking the wrong thing (to err is human, and Alexa definitely isn't). It's a simple change that can have a huge impact on day to day business.
