In this presentation at Project Voice 2020, I talk to entrepreneurs, small business owners and voice app tech enthusiasts about why Small Business owners are a key audience in making voice technology at large grow. The Voice First world has basically focused on fancy AI and gamification apps, however, the real businesses who need voice are the simple, every day service based businesses. As Alexa and Google Assistant continue to collect millions of new users per year, most are still using the voice assistants for listening to music and podcasts. As users learn about Skills and Actions, however, they're certain to push their devices further and ask for more. This is where small businesses will demand to be found on voice assistants. In order to get found, they will create Skills and Actions that they'll promote. Doing so is easier than many think. This video gets into it a bit.
