Today I participated in a Twitch webinar conducted by the Amazon Alexa developer team. I got some news there I want to share with you. In a flash briefing series on my daily Alexa flash briefing, B2B Media Executive Insights, I talked about the incredible opportunity for B2B media and information companies in Voice First. If you have asked, “how do I make money for my company with Voice First?” then ask no longer.
You can now make money directly by working in-skill purchasing into your custom Alexa skill.
You can do this in two ways: First, you can do this for one-time purchases. This is your product purchase; a piece of content, a report, an ebook, anything you want to charge for. Second, and get this. Charge for subscription. Yes, you can subscribe people to your service with Voice First.
This is only the beginning. There is a lot of discovery that is going into this. But one thing is certain. The time is now for your B2B media and information company to get into Voice First.
