I want to congratulate you because everything you just said was not only so smart but really fits into your vision of data driven design invoice. Because you did did exactly what you said you looked at your own data. You did some research you ask questions you said. How can I use voice in a way? That's GONNA benefit by organization as well as my I potentially clients in a way that I can use it for marketing. So you're bringing into people you're showcasing into them. You're right Google analytics. If anyone has ever looked at it it can be very overwhelming overwhelming. The amount of numbers that are there and not sure what to look at. What's important even if you put it on the spreadsheet it can be a lot for anyone and so? I think what's great about your skill that you're talking about about as you can ask you know what's going on with it. What's happening would have been the increase in traffic to my website? which is the things people truly care about? So I love that you created this from your whole ethos of what you're talking about. And it's a great way to showcase it and then you're also kind of having this conference to answer questions and to teach more so very very smart i. I think that's very well done in for anyone listening. I think it's a great way to really showcase how boys can work for you and for potential clients. Those that are unsure so really nice job. All thanks. Carrie Carrie Yeah I appreciate that. In the you're right you hit on a really good point there. Because like with asks data driven design he basically just took all the like five. Main questions is that we always get asked him that we always the answer and we. That's where we started and so like anyone who is starting any kind of application especially of voice based Application Gatien. I mean I would encourage you to start with something simple as a minimum viable product and then grow it out from there. Can you give us some examples of clients. You've created aided boy scouts for or even if you WanNa talk a little bit more about your own and the data use seen and what. It's kind of showing and it's growing for them. Yeah absolutely so one in particular titular. I'd love to give a shout out to a woman named Carmen Johnston. She's a great person and she's a client of ours. We've launched in our continuing to work on a scale and a google action for Carmen. Johnston Gardens is the name of business. I think this is a great example. That kinda bring everything together. So she's a small business toner and she's also building personal brand around her very successful business and cheese in landscape design mainly but she also is a master Gardener Gardner and is putting out a lot of content around home and garden tips recipes. We kind of joke around and kind of color like a mini Martha Stewart and. She's a content creator but it really you know like a service provider to her client. So we've worked with her and she challenged us to basically build a skill with video capabilities because she he noticed and this is what happens when you really good relationship with really good people. She noticed in her data that her audience is inclined inclined to be around the home and ask Alexa or Google for some information but then want to see it on video you know visually really as they might be doing something else around the house. So it's that friction lists experience with boys but then it becomes multi modal with the ability to see a video and many even touch screamed like you can on the echo show so on and so. I'm really really proud of this one. We launched the skill. All the armed Johnston Gardens. You know you can ask Alexa. It's a to pull up videos of how to tips on either homer garden recipes holiday gift ideas different things like that that that Carmen in special ed and the really cool thing about it carries like it doesn't stop there right because like anyone listening probably knows voices changing so rapidly. Lisa Lake from the different things you can do on Alexa presentation. Language down to being able to integrate Amazon A. N.. Even have parman say things like. Hey you know if you enjoyed tip like you can add this Amazon Cart. You know this product that we were using you can account Lincoln and make it searchable and just have this entire library. The of you know robust content that is very useful to her target audience. In this case around the house out in the yard out in the garden you know really being officiant at home around the home and so entertaining having guests over and things like that so really fascinating to work on things like that with people that really get it and understand understand how voice can be kind of part of the overall brand experience and can you share with us. I mean I don't know how long ago you created that for her but how her or are her clients had interacted with it when they'd have to say what is the data showing from that standpoint. Yeah so right now. I mean the opening indication or you know the for those of you listening. That might not know with that is probably most of you do but all you have to say. Alexa launched Carmen Johnston Gardens. And you'll get an opening menu and the menu will allow you to navigate. We've actually done a thing. I like about this. We replace the lexus voice with Carmen Voice. And she's got a great presence about her and so I think that makes for even even more improved experience there are custom intense built in and so the main customer tents you can skip directly to holiday tips tips home and garden tips or recipes by saying Alexa. Ask Carmen Johnston Gardens for recipes Alexa. Ask Carmen John's the gardens for holidays politics and then carry. We have built in close to a hundred different customer intends to skip directly to a bunch of different pieces of content and actually to go. uh-huh find those you can go to Carmen. Johnston gardens dot com slash voice. We've looked just basically listed them out there and that's going to be like along with integrating promotions into her social media her instagram different. Things like that. We're going to use kind of her existing digital presence as away to educate her audience in her perspective audience on how to use the skill in what to ask the skill in different things like that so at Carmen. Johnston Been Gardens on instagram. It's Johnston with a t there. And then Carmen Johnston gardens dot com slash boys to good places to go check on her Alexa skill. And so you're using that's great. You're using the data not only what you're getting back from the voice stuff but you're integrating it with the website with Google analytics with the social kind of looking at all the touch points as to how people are finding out about it interacting with it and then can use that to kind of make it better every time that's right and the other thing I'll add to that because that is a great question in the US so in the Amazon Alexa developer console. Right now they do give you some data on I would liken it to sort of Google analytics top OP viewed pages data. It's Kinda like that where you can go in and you can see you know how. Many users are using the skill when they've used the skill which great you can also see the top customer intends to use the top pieces of content and so we actually just got another meeting earlier today with my team with armaments team at basically the art of the conversation was around. Like how do we continue to manage the skill. And hear exactly right. What we're GONNA do is we're GONNA be looking at as we add new pieces of content and decide what to feature as custom system intense? We're going to use the data from Amazon developer console. There tells us what's being listened to most often in being engaged with most often and then on the data driven design skill we actually built that out of the gate with account linking so. It's got a back end web-based dash or that actually tells us like if you were to use it for example to check the analytics of saved boy summit DOT AI. We can see how many times you've used it and what questions you've you've asked it and so then we can take steps to improve it based on how you've used it for example so you had said earlier that you started a conference.

"All right. I apologize about that. We can do a lot. We just can't stop the clock. We made you hold your story about Genesis garden John's instant instant guard and Johnston garden about five years ago. My buddy, Steve who's longtime family friend calls me and says, hey, Jan wants a garden. I don't insult gardens anymore. That's you know, I'm going to do that work. I'm going to do it at my place. But you know, he's done all my computer work for me for ever not ever charge me anything. So it's like all right. Well, send me a picture. And so the picture came through it was an eastern exposure. So it was getting son from sunup until noon. It was on the east side of their structure the bed was about four feet wide and about fourteen feet long. It was framed out. So that there was, you know, brick around the bed the bed itself was about four inches below grade. And there was no grass growing in it. So at this point, I'm doing the happy dance. So I load into my truck about twenty cubic feet of planting mix and a head over there. I arrived there about seven o'clock and. While I'm unloading, the soil and putting it in the bed. She's watering. It took me about twenty twenty five minutes to get the soil unloaded and in the garden bed. She's watering it, and then we spent about twenty or twenty five minutes, and we planted and I left in her garden was planted. And I still get calls from them saying, oh, the garden still growing great. And this was like five years ago. Notice we didn't know digging. And the reason we could not do no digging on this particular project is because there wasn't a Bermuda or nut grass in the way. So all I did is I added four or five inches of planting mix right on top of the soil. I planted the seeds. Let the seeds sprout and the roots do the work. So the roots were actually doing the digging for me down into the hard harder soil so often I will just add two to six inches of organic matter right on top of your garden space. And then, you know, let nature take its course. Less hard on the back is my lazy gardener coming out. You know like that. Well, there's a reason I always had to do it growing up at dad's house. Oh, there you go. Get that soil turned up before I get homeboy. I can hear Rosie saying that. So that's you know, that's really the easiest thing to do. If you have a garden bed that doesn't have Bermuda grass in it. If you have a garden bed with Bermuda grass in it. You have to get the Bermuda and nut grass out before you plant, otherwise you're going to plant this. Nice garden, you're gonna fertilize it put nice healthy soil in place, and before long you're going to have a nice lawn. And Bermuda is extremely dominant there. It can be and what I do in my yard is actually put a concrete footer down about sixteen inches and cap it with a redbrick about six inches above the ground, and that's my garden bed. And then inside my garden that I just make sure that I have no Bermuda grass grown in there. And you said sixteen inches. It takes every bit of that sixteen inches. Jay had quoted a study. I think it was the university of Arizona probably had found Bermuda grass route twenty four inches down. Now. One point. That's not surprising. Here's what happens if there's a water source down there. The roots are going to go down to it. If like in my nicely flutter a gated yard. I would say it doesn't go any further down than about six or eight inches doesn't have to because it doesn't have to. That's right. Bermuda grass love it or hate it. Well, you love it. If you have a lawn hated if you're gardening. There you go and you've got both at the urban farm, then I've got both. Yep. You can do that. All right.
