What The Heck Is an Alexa Flash Briefing Anyway?
So what exactly are Alexa Flash Briefings? They are super short micro podcasts that can be up to 10 minutes in length with most being 2-3 minutes. Many will make you laugh, inspire you, educate you and in my case hopefully get your marketing juices flowing! I jump on a couple of times a week with my coffee in hand to chat about social media and branding yourself at any age to build your real estate business on a shoestring budget. My idea of coffee talk!
Like many of you I am life long learner with a glass is half full attitude, creative mindset and zest for life who loves to listen to audio books, podcasts and of course flash briefings.
Did you know you can set up a variety of “skills” to listen to on Alexa from entertainment, business, marketing, weather, inspiration, prayer, local information and more. New “skills” are added all the time and some very cool ones I might add.
If you enjoy these short and sweet nuggets of information then buzz by my podcast too for in depth interviews with influencers in and out of real estate that will inspire you!
