If you haven’t yet considered Alexa Skills as a possibility then you are going to have to soon. The world is becoming ever more connected with the Internet of Things (IoT) and the ownership and use of smart speakers and voice assistants is on a rapid rise (estimated that 40% of all UK homes will have a smart speaker by the end of the year).

If you look to take voice assistants and smart speaker skills seriously now, you could be reaping the rewards for years to come. Being one of the first to the market can help you to claim valuable market share in a competitive space. The competitive advantage that comes with creating a skill for smart speakers is that it allows you to provide something for users that your competitors may not, and the lifetime value from early adopters is also something not to be sniffed at!
The voice channel helps to create ‘front of mind’ for brands and is the only way to reach customers while they are using your products (e.g. while cooking, eating, reading, doing household jobs). It is also a low-effort channel for consumers and is accessible by a very wide demographic, ranging from kids all the way up to grandparents. Given that all that is required is a person’s voice, this channel is also accessible to those who may be visually impaired.
