With an estimated *65 million people in the US now owning a Google Home, Amazon Alexa or something similar, Voice Tech is slowly becoming a part of our lives. In the main they are replacing FM radios in our kitchens and offices. Connected to other smart technologies like thermostats and lights. It’s not just smart speakers where voice tech is becoming more common place though. Apple’s Siri has been around for seven years now whilst the Google Assistant is three.

Businesses are starting to see opportunities in smart speakers and voice tech though. Voice marketing is taking off in the consumer world but it also has a place in the B2B world too according to Molly Raycraft.

“The only way that something like doing marketing through smart speakers is going to be a possibility is if they are pushed through with the data behind them.”

If we are to take voice tech seriously the data behind it must be positive. As with everything, the less data we have, the more we should try it though.

For more information on voice tech and what it can offer us, listen to this week’s podcast.
