Voice Marketing Is Here To Stay! 

 

 

Voice is happening in our industry and you are probably already listening to podcasts and in some cases YouTube videos. Think super short, super micro and packed with nuggets of info you can use in your real estate biz! You can set a flash briefing up for almost anything real estate wise. I listen to marketing flashes, mortgage, social media, inspirational and of course Gary V!

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! 

 

Not sure what skills to follow once on the Alexa app? Click on the drop down box and go to Skills and Games…you will see discover, categories and your skills or you can search topics and people to see who has a “skill” set up. For your convenience I have included of few of my faves below. You simply just have to click on who or what you like and “enable”. It takes about an hour for one to become active, in my experience. You can also say “skip” when your flash briefings are playing if the content for that day is not relevant for you. At the end of this post I have put a list of over 55+ Skills you can enable to help you with everyday life! 

 

 

Now here is the best part! You can set up your own “skill” just like I did. It is not too difficult but does take a little work and then it must be approved by Amazon. You can become the micro local marketer of your community!
