Amazon Alexa Flash Briefings
EVERY business or organization has one thing in common: they need to communicate with their target audience.
Traditional strategies for communicating with potential customers or even employees can be a challenge these days. People don't take the time to read their email or newsletters from companies. And social media outlets are swarming with competition. There's so much noise out there, that it can be difficult to make your voice heard.
We have the solution: Amazon Alexa Flash Briefings
How it Works:
Your Listener simply says, "Alexa, play my Flash Briefing" anytime they're near their Amazon Echo enabled device.
Then, they hear their daily news, maybe the weather, and YOUR voice!
Fig. 1 - Listener says, "Alexa, play my Flash Briefing", and they hear YOUR voice!
Imagine the impact it would have on your business, if you could speak to tens of thousands of members of your target audience, every single day, right in their own home! Now you can!
Latest estimates say that in the US alone, there are over 50,000,000 adults using Smart Speakers, and only 5000 Alexa Flash Briefings! This means that your listeners are STARVING for content. They would welcome your voice into their home each day. This means that you can notify them of new product announcements, events, promotions, industry news, local updates, or whatever else you can think of! The options are limitless.
How You Create Content:
The next question you probably have is about how difficult it might be to create content. You probably need a recording studio, or a professional sound editor, right? Nope! All you need to be able to do is type a few sentences in an email or push the record button on your phone. We then take that email and have Alexa read it to your audience each day, or take the audio clip you just recorded, and play it for your audience. That's all there is to it!
Fig. 2 - You use your Smart Phone to record an audio clip, then hit "upload". We take it from there.
Our proprietary system automatically scans for updates, so each time you type an email or record an audio clip, it AUTOMATICALLY and INSTANTLY is available for your audience to hear. It is so simple to use.
If you choose to move forward with creating your very own Flash Briefing, we'll send you an email asking you to choose the following:
- The Name of Your Skill. This can be anything that you feel accurately describes the function of your Skill. "South Dakota Daily News" or "Real Estate Tips with April" are examples.
- Your Skill Logo. This can be any jpeg or png file that you'd like to represent your Skill. It will appear on Amazon.com and every place that your Skill is promoted.
- A Short Description. Give us 2-3 sentences describing the functionality of your Skill and why Users should listen to your content.
And that's it! We do the rest. Depending on your preferred method of producing content, we'll either set up an email address for you to type updates for Alexa to read. Or, we'll set up an audio account for you to upload audio files. You can either use your phone to record content on the go, or if you prefer to use produced audio clips with intro music from your desktop computer, we will set it up that way.
After we receive your information, we need just 2 or 3 days to develop and test your Skill. Then Amazon needs an additional 2-5 days to review and approve. So, in most cases, we can have you up and running within a week!
Get started by following the link below, or shoot us an email with any questions. If you'd like to schedule a time for a phone call to talk through any questions you have, we'd be happy to do that as well.
We'd love to see you grow your brand, spread your message, or increase sales by connecting to your audience through Amazon Alexa!
