Marketing with digital assistants will become a subtle, yet effective war for consumer attention. While debate ensues of whether or not AI assistants will be used for voice ads, companies like Amazon insist they will provide unbiased information on brands, including ways to reduce risk and cost.

The quality of your Assistant produces the quality of reviews you’ll receive. This determines the likelihood of your brand’s recommendation to consumers. Using Alexa Skill’s analytics, you can even identify where the bottlenecks are, user-engagement, and what strategies are most to least useful.

By getting ahead of the curve and utilizing the ever-growing market of digital assistants, and by ensuring your skill is performing at its best, your brand paves the path for the future of all goods and services.
