"If you're involved in developing skills in the waste industry we would encourage you whether you're working on the alexa of the good war this theory platform to think about seniors as part of your audience and customer base because it is a mistake to assume seniors. Can't you learn to use technology because they can't oldest. A power user is one hundred one years young at our number one power user. A guy named paul virginia who uses his voice platform. He likes to work with alexa and he chose that platform he talks to alexa about seventy two times on average per day per day. I'm in the industry. I don't talk to the speaker seventy two times a day but he's bed bound and he can turn lights often on. Tv the off and on change the channel locked in law gives door and see who's at the door before he unlocked. He's regained some of his personal power. through voice technology and if you're in healthcare take a look at the social benefits and also the clinical applications.

And actually mark from constant companion touched on something that I think is probably the most valuable aspect of voice and conversational AI, which is to make things not only accessible, but understandable and comprehensible by everybody for everybody, regardless of status or age or anything. Everything from elder care to providing better kind of interactivity and understanding to people who otherwise would not have access to these advanced resources to all these other things. So I think, you know, what I would look when I look at it is that, you know, a lot of initial uses of things like conversational AI tools focus on enabling capabilities that we all kind of take for granted, right? Today, the normal actions turning on the lights and so on. And I think going forward in the future is really the potential here is that what we have is a tool that can make the advanced work that needs to be done in healthcare or chronic conditions and things like that. We can make that accessible and understandable by everybody. So that my grandmother and everyone else can utilize these things just as a regular part of their everyday existence and still access resources that would otherwise be limited to just waiting weeks and on end for a specialist to explain it to them and even then they don't quite understand all the ins and outs of it. The potential of voice and conversational AI is that what you have here is a patient never getting tired kind of resource in front of you that will explain anything in the world to you.

More Proactive Experiences for Your Amazon Device

"Terry Fisher here. So all right, let's get into another one of these announcements from the Lexi live event. Now, I have to admit this one, I'm not so sure that it's going to be coming to Canada as soon as the United States simply because this is based on locations and those features seem to take a little bit longer to come to Canada. Never less. I want to tell you about it cuz I think it's pretty interesting. It's all about more proactive experiences and this is the description that Amazon puts out for this. It says using event-based triggers and proactive suggestions developers can build proactive office. This is for customers. So, for example, if someone is heading out to work, the customers could opt in to have a skill proactively suggest that they walk their home. Or if someone begins a morning run, a school to proactively suggest a playlist to listen to. And they give an example here. And they say, Whole Foods is also using these features for curbside pickup experience, that will launch later this year. Now again, I'm assuming this is Is going to be in the United States. First, unfortunately, I don't know when it's coming to Canada, but I think you know, this is one of the really interesting things about voice technology. In my mind is when it can become proactive and really be a personal assistant, proactively offer the key word. So I will definitely keep you updated on what I hear with regards to any of these features coming to Canada for now know that they Amazon is working on this and typically, it is just a matter of time till those features come here as well.

Request Songs on the Radio With Alexa

"Is a very very interesting feature that Amazon just announced with Lexi life. This is called the wrong song requests kill component. And this is the statement that that Amazon has put out about this. This feature will allow radio DJs to engage with listeners by taking song requests and dedications through Lexi. As an example, they say that iHeartRadio will support this feature and actually saw a demo, this whole literally. What happens is a person can speak to Lexi request a song dedicated to someone and then the DJ on the other end will get that list of requests that are coming in. May be able to play songs and this all happens through Lexi. I am very interested to see how this will actually play out. Once we have this feature, well, baked into the skill or we can act The experienced it but it's very fascinating to me because it opens up this whole new world of interactive voice technology with a brand with us. In this case a radio DJ but it could be other brands that are using these features. So I'm very sad to see where this goes in the future. For now it's called the song requests kill component and home. Again, this is available to developers right now to start implementing in their skills. So I will do my best to keep you updated on this as I learn new aspects about this. But I think this is a very exciting one.

"First of all tell me about mediate as a whole what is it and why is it important so i like mediate because i try to be a really conscious consumer so i am one of those people that believes that we really vote for the companies that remain with our money. So it's really important to me when i when i'm making purchases but also when i pick a place to work because i don't want to work for a company that i feel like is treating its customers and users badly because that just doesn't align with my moral compass so that's the first thing that you should know about me and then you know that that also factors that also reflects on the company because i wouldn't work for the there. Were bad company. The thing that i love about mediate is our focus is on the people that were serving so our goal is to work with users to create solutions to problems that actual people have that actual people want solutions for so we're not trying to create something and then convince you that you need it all of the products that we develop all of the features that we create our directly in response to what people have come to us. and ask for. And i think that makes us you know unfortunately makes us kind of unique in a couple of different markets that we're in because i feel like a lot of times you know either as a blind person or as a college student or even as just a person in the generation that i am in people come to me and tell me hey you know you need this thing and so you should buy it and i. I really have an issue with that approach. Because i feel like a lot of times. I'm not being. i'm not the person be considered. You know it's kind of more about you. Know the bottom line of certain businesses. And so that's really what we're not about where we're here to create something that people want something.

Another people don't realize just how dependent the education industry is on data points ruins inform how you track performance in many different ways whether it's in beaumont of formal assessment reading practice or instruction right but voice is actually a new category data for education.

And i think there's lots and lots of room To explorer to create together But that that fundamental human instinct of. Oh i want to interact. I wanna join the conversation.

"Why do we need voice technology specifically for children while the shelf speech recognition technology tends not to work very well for kids. It's akin to what speech recognition technology was for adults ten years ago which was pretty bad and nobody was really using it at the time. And there's very good reasons for this for kids. They're physically very different right you know. We know that they're they're vocal. Tracks are thinner and shorter the vocal folds of smaller so the actual physical voice resides in the different parts of the spectrum. There speech language is different. I mean you know. Children's language developed so much in those early years from two to four to six to eight to ten you can see how their languages maturing it's become more sophisticated is beginning to follow the language rules as they get older when they reach a by ten and they start sounding a little more mature but their behaviors are so different. I mean adults tend to be quite behaved. Very well actually. It's very little. I very bill speed. How adults when you take dialect and accent. We tend to try and follow the language rules than we tend to try and realize how we should interact with voice technology to get the best possible result but kids don't kids don't follow the language rules that behaviors. They along gate. Were they words. They over pronounce words. They p- unctuous <hes>. They showed the whispered they sing and their environments that they're in that they inhabit tend to be always noisy. I mean nobody is a four year old likes to go and have quite time on their own. They tend to be around the adults. They tend to be into their kids. They tend to be. Tv's in the background and adults token northward. Kids are in classrooms playgrounds from cars. When the us. I want to use voice technology. It's not in a quiet environment and we have to be really mindful of that. We also have to be mindful of the channels which <hes> children interact with technology. All different chipset from cheap old smartphones more expensive ipads to chromebooks two laptops to <hes>. Cheap microphones on toys. A voice technology built for kids has to work in all those environments all those channels and be able to cope with the very ability of kids speech <hes> speech in terms of their acoustically. How they sound on on the physical differences both well as the language and the behaviors. I'm very much so we need to protect kids. Data it far beyond what we.

"How did you get interested in voice technology? So I found voice a few years ago while I was doing my data science master's degree in Paris in France has a two year course studying machine learning and I was looking around at different fields that interested me decide what what I would work in after after I graduated I was okay. Human computer interaction studying robotics, the voice, of course, and also different fields that involve the human in someway I call it that the human interaction element of things I ended up doing an internship. At a laboratory called air come on voice emotion transformation. As that basically means I was creating machine learning model that would accept recording human speech and then would transform its characteristics that it would output a new file of the person speaking with the emotion in the voice changed in some way so it would sound more angry or happier or whatever you would like. This is a fantastic first introduction for me into the world of voice. Allow me to me a lot of people who are specialists in voice technology and really started a spot, my generation, and this is exactly around the time when. Alexa and be smart speakers are really taking off as well. So I could see that was a real opportunity in the industry to to work at in that field as well. So this is a this is what really got me into voice festival. I think the first voice interface I us apart from the you know the toys I used as a child, and we can all think back to the eighty s when there was some kind of voice interfaces available. But in recent times I, think that the the most the first voice I, was on my mobile phone like many people had an android phone. So I started issuing a few voice searches and commands to it. I was paying more attention to the space immediately went. Out and Amazon Echo dot started playing with that you know set my smart home, a couple of light switches STOSKOPF questions hoped it up to Jesus. So I could ask her after music tracks and things like that and it grew from that. So then I started using my phone in the car as people do I'd start buying the Google devices. So I have a, you know a range of different ecosystems in the house now, but that's that was my first experience basically. So those experiences on my phone and on the smart speakers really convince me of the potential of voice of been a fan of the the idea of ambient computing star Trek Vision. Well, when you just walk into a room and asked what we want and none of this weight word business, you just have a thought ask for it and the computer responds and I could see why this is a big step towards that vision. Is Not the full, not the full vision. Of course, there's going to be other modalities introduced, but really sparked my imagination and it really made me made me think that this is the technology that has the most potential to advance the quickest in the coming years thinking about my career and what I wanted to work on I was thinking strongly about the by thumb VR still has a long way to go before it. Really. Takes off in the mainstream, but this voice thing this really looks like it's got a lot of attention on the short term. I think it was right in in that prediction as well because looking at the proliferation of smart speakers and the so many searches are conducted over voiced today. It's definitely is definitely a trend that's GONNA stick. Voice Tech podcast is a must listen. So listeners go listen to it.

"Company helps people to essentially like in these APPs on the smartphone. Great great now the thing that got me really interested was your approach to how you can use what you're developing. For this pandemic and for covert. A little of that because I think this is very interesting. Yeah, great, so <hes>! Yeah, so one of the things that we wanted to do this kind of help, inspire people understand. How is it that they could use voice in the context of smartphones and and Apple Watch in particular? And no given that. Covert is is mostly <unk>. No, the single most thing that defines all of our existence I these days you know. How is that can kinda lend a hand to what's happening in the world? But at the same time help people understand what's possible with voice in a mobile apartment, and so what we've done, is we? We put together this this out. which is going to be out shortly? which is kind of an in house studio APP? Where we call it hand watcher circles with. Basically the idea is that you don't wash their hands. You know most people don't wash their hands for long enough. And, and additionally you know if you're going to work, you know. Let's say if you're in a restaurant or if you know workplace and you kind of care about your own health, you're kind of thinking okay well. Are these people washing their hands are the people around me? Having safe practices so that I can be safe because I'm right next to them. And so the idea is that. We have this kind of touched Lewis. Voice I, hand, wash timer. Okay, so you can basically say <hes> you know. Hey. Siri start hand wash. And then what it does is it starts a countdown timer for the appropriate amount of seconds <hes>. We haven't yet implemented the accelerometer. gyroscope features where we could determine if you actually did a good job at it yet. You're using your watch in an attack less voice mode. You're getting it to do a timer for you. And then what we do, is we aggregate? So. Let's say if you're in a circle. A hand wash circle of. Every person. That's at your McDonald's store that you're working at right that you can see <hes>. How much other hand washing is happening in your work environments, so the idea is that if you're in a workplace or you're in school, and you want to encourage people to have these these these <hes> Kobe positive habits of washing their hands all the time that without making people feel guilty about not washing their hands, you can encourage them to wash their hands, and then everyone can see how much washing their hands and kind of trying to encourage these positively eight years. Focused on it because it's it's an ideal use case because it's a tax use case that the ideas that our phones are also jury. So. If, we can have a hand wash timer that we can activate. That can get US logically appropriate amounts without making our hands dirty process than and that's that's. That's a win so. So that's that's what we're doing. They're very, so can, can you? Explain maybe a little bit more how it works. Will person would? They've got this. APP then on the phone tied into their watch, a mayor going to wash their hands in. They say to their watch start the timer or start the hand whatever it's called washed guy, that's right, and then and then it records. If they completed it for the full amount of time, it shut ideally all talking, but twenty seconds right now for washing. And then, so then what happens with data that goes at how to other people access that or how do they know what's going on in your circle? So, let's say so. Let's say I if I worked at. Let's, let's if worked out a long term care facility. Okay, and that Long Term Care Facility decided okay. We need to have people have these positive habits. We need people to be washing their hands, so we're going to create a code hand wash code for our facility, so that hand wash code is going to be. A. You know it's GonNa be you know <hes>? Longhorn ranch. Is the CO right? That's the name of the facility. So when someone downloads the APP the Inter that Code Aaron immediately. They're connected with everyone else at that facility. Okay so by using the same code. And Yeah and then essentially when people. Who who have that code? On their watch or are using their phone with the code, so they're also using it using their smartphones as well because not everyone has an apple watch. That yet that it just basically captures that you wash your hands, and then it it aggregates with all the data of all the other hand washers, so you can see. There's thirty Ham washers who have watched three hundred times, or there's three hundred hand washers that have lost four hundred times. Okay, so there's kind of running totals. that. Dead that organizations can use to say to point to say hey, look. We're making progress on creating a more hygienic environment because people are using. Are doing hand washing and it's now visible. Right, so it's not. It's not just something you do on your own. You Trust the people. It's like yeah I'm doing it I'm proud of it. And because of the fact that I'm washing my hands that I'm contributing to the safety and health of everyone inside this long term care facility, including frontline workers, but also also people who are residents here.

The need to have contactless <hes> touching a button in elevators like Roy by Harav high auto spoke about. The Need. To be able to to speak to things like in an uber like was mentioned as well. I would just like to hear your perspective on what the Corona virus has done to the to either complement or set-back the. Voice Technology Well Brilliant. Question Sir Bradley. You know I I'm a studier of history and and for a lot of my clients, my. Utility I. Think in what I do for them is give them a little bit of a boost of what's above the horizon. What's on the other side and I utilize his? And Future ISM and fuse those two things together. And I studied. Midsummer I started studying the nineteen thousand nine hundred nineteen <hes>. Pandemic! And there was a reason for that. There was <hes>. There a conference that was held <hes>. Virtual Conference and sort of assimilation tell by number of institutions in the medical field bill. Gates <hes> that predicted enters videos out there I think it's called plan one or two. And <hes> event one zero two. And when I saw that you know I'd always. Have understood that real pandemics <hes> not just epidemics <hes> you know, look it up the definitions, but not have time to cover that real pandemic are going to impact <hes>. You know every one hundred years, or so. It's been cyclical pretty much as far back as you can go on history, and there's a lot of reasons for that but I said Okay these folks are very smart. They're planning for a pandemic. This is interesting. You look at the videos. Try Not to get goosebumps because there's a whole lot of things that are being said in videos from August and September <hes>. That are taking place right now. So I started studying the pandemic and I said well. What was the impact of that event to technology? As a as a general subject, well, the very first thing I noticed and I had not noticed this before and I've studied a lot of history books. From, the subject is communication technology exploded post, pandemic, <hes>, one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine, and these are two technologies. One was an older technology called the telephone. And the other one was a newer technology called radio and or broadcast radio. And what happened was. The impact to people after this pandemic, there was no national news service <HES>. There was no broadcast radio that anybody was really using and nineteen, eighteen or nineteen, hundred nineteen, there were crystal radio sets in some hobbyists were broadcasting and my latest twitter feed I put up a video showing the. First Broadcast Radio Station, eight K. x <hes> out of Pittsburgh area, and that was <hes> in nineteen nineteen. So what happened is unity came out of a sort of close setting. <hes> where communication was. kind of local and you really didn't need to know about national news. Kinda same today, but we are just junkies for, but we didn't really need to know about national news unless it really had a material impact on our life in our local environment, and that's of course. World War One. People were getting news from that and newspapers. Presidential elections. And maybe some news from former homelands or generational homelands. What's going on in Europe or Africa or Asia or something of those nature of that nature, so the radio exploded? And so the the telephone post pandemic, and it wasn't an accident, because people now wanted to connect in different ways and more meaningful ways, and so there's a psychological repercussion to everything that's going on right now, and everything has gone on the past. You could see cause and effect

I started a technology consulting firm working with companies like best buy customers and the New York Public Library which is one of the biggest library systems in the country of a really cool experience and then I decided to do my MBA nyu which was an auto insurance. After that I worked at the mayor's office the third term of Michael Bloomberg's term in office in York City which was awesome. It was incredible. You get to learn so much about the state of a first inside of a three hundred thousand. Employees ARE GONNA. Station was incredible after that. I helped a friend run for mayor in Providence. Rhode Island. He became the first Latino. Mayor of the capital of the State of Rhode Island in that was running many aspects of the technology for that campaign among them. Virtual call centers and. That's where I got to see how this technology was so old school at using technology ten years prior and nothing has changed. I decided to build the queue in that space that brings me to. I moved to Silicon Valley with my wife. My wife works at Google. Interestingly enough we both are invoice so she works in the global product Theme at Google for the Google assistant and so went to Silicon Valley. My company or I go through Y.

We'd love to obviously talk about the cue to take one quick setback of my affinity to technology. My Dad got me an IBM. I'm thinking somewhere in the mid eighties and I remember. We had to buy different parts. He had a friend he always claimed that potentially was a Russian spy. She knew a lot about technology so he was an awesome friend to me and with him. We are able to build a modem you know and get the first modem to able dial out from my. Ibm Computer in the mid eighties. So instance Daniel just always been in love with technology. Does the beginning of my affinity to technology. I love that and I love. That voice has not only been throughout your life but now is in your personal life that you and your wife both do.

You know why did you start the company and I'm curious? What was your experience with y? Combinator like because people have heard about it but they don't really understand like the process or how it works. I love for you to share that with us if you could for sure. So I the caliber of the mentors of combinator. I guess they call themselves partners and they are partners. It's the best quality seen out there in terms of accelerators. The recent why am moved from New York City to Silicon Valley? It's because Silicon Valley has sixty years of his to show knowledge of building technology products and investing in technology products. So here the mentorship that you get if you are an early stage startup founder. It's like nowhere else. The mentors that you get they all their own companies. They sold their own companies. If not one two three there. Cereal successful entrepreneurs Many failures between rights. So these are the type off mentors that you surround yourself with and you know. I was in New York. I Love New York. I lived in New York for twenty years. And you know in New York. We have the acronym fire of Finance Insurance and real estate. Those are the biggest markets in New York. Technology for sure is going to be a huge industry not only New York across the country but New York does not have sixty years of institutional knowledge of investors founders of build their own technology product company. He has a handful of them and bears successful among the Bloomberg Michael Bloomberg. By if you look at the history of that type of institutional knowledge in venture capital in in building products it really goes back twenty years in New York City. And if you look at other cities again you're looking at ten years as opposed to sixty almost seventy years in silicon valley. So definitely I think Y combinator epitomizes that move is being. The epicenter of successful founders will build product in. They know how to do it. They've done in multiple times. Not only they build it without now. They're investing in other founders. So they understand what it is to invest in founders rather than specific product. Yeah and I know. That voice has such a large role especially in innovating in the business. Space including things like a voice dashboard search voice meeting assistance and more and for those that are either newer to voice or even for those who work in the voice community agencies startups and they're trying to get companies to understand the power of choice technology. Can you describe how and why voice innovation is helpful for businesses from your perspective now for sure so we'll definitely the awareness stage of voice of you looking at from like a marketing sales perspective? You have different stages of a buyer journey. You have awareness consideration in decision stage where you actually know what you want. Now you know that you need it and you need to make a decision. We are in the awareness stage very early on so basically you're looking at ninety nine point. Nine percent of businesses globally do not know that they can leverage voice channel marketing sales customer service channel by voice. I mean a voice conversational voice so super early stages one of the interesting things that when we have meetings with customers in it ranges from you know we have work with small businesses now we're targeting midmarket and enterprise in. We have a handful of the larger type of businesses even the largest type of businesses including the biggest marketplace in the world during the initial meetings that we have with hits of marketing ahead of VP of marketing automation VP of whatever any of these conversations that we have with them one of the things that tends to happen over and over is that they come in very curious would one use case and they said hey we were thinking you know voice have a conversation wait are prospects over the phone for this specific use case and we said yes and then they start you see. They're sort of ideas just bouncing in their head and they start coming up with different scenarios as they wait a second. We also have this issue in logistics where we have thousands of its drivers and we need to make sure that to get their attention. Tax Email doesn't work as fast. Can we leverage voice in e triggered by the fact that you know if you're done with one appointment and avoid spotted medically triggers and have a conversation with them and ask him where they are where they're going to remind light so this are the conversations that we have in every day with prospective customers? We had him with small business. Now we're having the windward market enterprise and what be seen is that is just the day one.

There's this is the Lions Gate Bridge going to Stanley. Park the mountains. It's downtown Vancouver and boy if I had the foresight to buy some real estate along that beach twenty years ago I wouldn't be investing in big coined and that's another story so what I want to talk about is opportunity an opportunity today in twenty twenty with voice and the prime prime real estate of voice. You know we think about twenty twenty vision and I think it's more appropriate today as we enter the twenty two think about twenty twenty voice and so I'm GonNa talk about the opportunity in audio content production with flash flash briefings and how we can leverage this in the roaring twenties. It's really fitting that the nineteen twenties. We're called the roaring twenty S. And here we are in the twenty twenties And we're talking about voice and whoever has really loud strong war is going to be heard over the other brands so my name's CBS Terry Fisher. I'm a physician by day and a dad has been a voice tech- enthusiast by night and about two and a half years ago when I I started getting into the voice space. I was looking for resources to help me learn. How do I do this? And I didn't find much and so I started some resources. I started the election candidate. PODCAST and this has taken off all about consumers and how they can use Alexa. Levers Voice Technology. I started my voice in Canada. AH FLASH BRIEFING AND I'm very humbled to say that do support of the community. It's been the number one rated flash briefing and new skill in Canada. Since it started over seven hundred days ago seven hundred consecutive days. I started the broadcast network. which is a network of curated brief casters or flash briefing speakers who are producing some of the very best flash briefings out there and in fact almost half of those that have been named finalists for the Flash Flash briefing of the Year Award Award here project? Boys are part of this network breeding my physician medical expertise that decided to create some medical briefing. So I started a sweet voice. I health flash briefings and I want to help the community so I started out. I create a course called flashing formula entirely free. And I'll talk more about that later on so briefly opportunity and we're going to talk about some tips. Tips for flash briefings. What are the numbers? I think podcasts as the cousin to flash briefings when you look at the numbers there are seven hundred thousand podcasts. And twelve thousand brief casts or flash briefings. Put that another way. We're looking at every Sixty podcasts that are currently out there there is one wash briefing talk about opportunity. Here is the chance to get hurt to put your stake in the ground and become a leader in whatever. Your niche is so. Let's get to these tips. Brief casts brief casts has nine letters and coincidentally. What do you know? I have nine tips for you. So let's talk about these be brief. Be Be brief as well show you listeners. Subscribing to multiple flash briefings and they want quick content. They want to get in and out can get the little nuggets so they can move on. In fact most of the people are listening to flash briefings after survey Mahdi's say that they're subscribed to approximately six to ten. How many of you listen to flash briefings how many of you have your own flash briefing and how many of you are thinking about creating flash briefings okay? Great fantastic. And so. Here's what Peter Stewart. said he's one of the members of the broadcast network. I'm sure some of you. Listen to his brief cast smart speakers news flash briefings clue is right there in the name twice. The whole reason for them is that they are brief audio snippets over in a flash. Well said perfect so let me give you some numbers. I asked my audience pool. What is the preferred length for a flash briefing episode? And what they found or what they said is that fifty percent of people prefer a two minute. Flash briefing and in fact eighty percent of people prefers three minutes or or less so yes there are exceptions but the sweet spot seems to be about two to three minutes which is great for content creators. Because it actually doesn't take a lot of time to do this. You got to be consistent. We'll talk about that a little later on our. What's your reason for doing it another way of saying what problem? Are you trying to solve a Rubik's cube in your hands and we just heard you try to solve that. You know what you're trying to solve when you have a quality broadcasts and not saying you couldn't do strictly strictly for fun and that's awesome nothing wrong with that but if you're trying to solve a problem for a for a listener that is how you're really GonNa Start to develop a nice relationship and they're gonNA come back day after today and as Dave campus in the future ear flash briefing flash briefings represent a medium that allows the creator to crack into the listeners. Routine it's an incredibly intimate medium. And when you have that connection and you're actually solving a problem for them that's really powerful. Very very powerful I am I catching icon. This may seem a little bit odd when we're talking about voice but the reality is at least as of today the way people are finding flash briefings is they're looking at some type of visual display an ask my audience again. How are you finding your flash briefings things and this is what they said? Excuse me sixty eight percent of them are using some type A visual interface. The Alexa App you can scroll through it and see icons the brief cast dot com website. Where we're cataloging these broadcasts and you can see the icons and the the Amazon website? Sixty percent are so if you have an eye-catching icon that's going to get someone's attention equipment equipment US decent equipment. How many of you would like to listen to a radio station? That's got a bunch of static or very tinny sound this does not mean expensive. There are some very good inexpensive equipment and I can always give you some recommendations if you'd like and again Peter Stewart smart speakers says don't let the potential cost of doing a flash briefing put you off. It really can be quite cheap simple and straightforward to start at absolutely one hundred percent true and fun have fun with it. Be Willing to experiment. Be Willing to be creative. Amy Summer says from the Patriot. Amy Summers another fantastic flash briefing use flash briefings to create interest and develop a relationship with your audience and if you can create eight that interest. They're gonNA WANNA come back from war and I want to give you a little example of something that I've experimented with so for my five hundred flash briefing. I wanted to do something something. A little special. I wanted to really engage the audience. I wanted to thank them. I wanted to give away some prizes. And I thought I'm going to create a game flash briefing. How am I going to do that and I thought well? Here's here's how it's GonNa work for two weeks every single day. I'm going to give some type of riddle. A clue puzzle. Something like that that they can engage and solve love and if they can solve that they will go to another skill called crack. The code were they will talk to Alexa and they will play the game and if they can figure this out correctly Alexis going to give them back a tiny little piece of a final code and if they do it every single day they're going to get fourteen pieces of that code and if they can figure out the final code they talked to Alexa and Alexa tells them how they can enter to win. The Grand Prize. Sounds like a lot of steps I was like this is GonNa GonNa work it work. Tell him the results. This is sort. Of A schematic of what I had envisioned what I'd actually created then not even really knowing it at the time was I created a voice marketing funnel because people can be exposed to my brand a number of different ways social media through the website through my podcast my briefing during that two week period..
