Frequently Asked Questions

Creating a voice application doesn’t have to be an overly expensive project. The key is understanding where the costs lie, and setting your budget for each item appropriately. Here are some of the biggest cost considerations for creating voice applications:

  • Development required (e.g. Human resources and technology required)
  • Hosting of the app (e.g. Will it live on Amazon or Google’s platform?)
  • Marketing of voice application
  • Cost of sourcing the voice (e.g. There are different costs associated with hiring a natural voice vs. creating a synthetic voice to be the signature voice of your application)

You should look for the following things when you look for a voice actor:

  • They have experience voice applications: You’ll want to keep a keen eye out for voice actors who have done voice app before. Professional talent who have previously undertaken these projects have proven they know what they’re doing, and may work more efficiently, therefore saving you time (and as a result - money).
  • The voice matches your brand sound: The voice needs to encapsulate your brand’s sound. Voice applications will be the future of how consumers interact with your company’s offerings.
  • Listen for added dimension that enhances your message: Your voice actor needs to have the ability to add character and personality in a way that will give your app an extra dimension. They will have your users hanging on to every word, create excellent brand awareness and have people wanting to interact with your app, time after time.
  • Good reviews from other clients: Take a good look at the voice actor’s Voices.com profile page. Have they received good reviews or ratings? Were they able to turn the job around fast? This will ensure you’re getting a talent who can execute the assignment in the timeframe you need.

The usage of voice applications will vary based on your consumer base. But there are certain criteria to follow. Here are the three main types of voice apps you can create for your brand that will appeal to your consumers:

A voice app that is helpful in the background: The future wave of voice technologies is going to involve being there for customers when they need you, and at their initiation (e.g. weather alerts, traffic alerts and other questions posed to the app by the consumer).

A voice app that fulfills a regular need: Ask yourself the question: “Does my brand fill a real customer need?” If the answer is “yes,” then you can use voice applications to fill the need of your customer. An example would be a reservation booking voice app for a restaurant or an app that interacts with consumers to update them on schedules, meetings etc.

A voice app that alleviates a pain point: Imagine a voice app that can solve a major problem for your consumers. An example includes a voice application that allows consumers to start their car without having to go outside (perfect for colder days).

Here are five considerations when making a flash briefing a part of your band’s audio content strategy:

  1. Create a solid action plan: Ask yourself the following four questions to ensure you’ll get the most out of it:
    • Do we have the development resources or budget to hire development resources?
    • Do we want to have the briefing read in Alexa’s voice, or have a custom recording of the content available for Alexa to serve to the user instead?
    • How will we promote our new Skill to ensure our audience knows about it?
    • How will we measure its success?
  2. Think about who’s going to voice your content: In order for your content to be pushed through a user’s smart speaker, it must be available in an audio format. You have two options here:
    • Publish the content with coding that allows Alexa to read the content aloud.
    • Provide an audio recording of the content. You can have the author provide the voice over, or hire a voice actor (or two) to provide the voice over for all recordings.
  3. Promote your Alexa Flash Briefing Skill: As your newly developed Skill becomes another extension of your brand, it should be woven into the marketing plan like any other channel. Consider promoting it through your social channels, email newsletters, webinars, podcasts, videos, landing pages, blog posts and other available marketing initiatives.
  4. Measure the usage and performance of the Flash Briefing: Amazon now provides a metrics dashboard for you to access and report on the usage of your Skill. They’re able to provide you with all the key performance indicators (KPIs) you’ll need to prove the usefulness of the Skill, and ultimately the return on investment (ROI) that comes with increasing how often your Skill is used, and how much of your content is consumed.
