017 - Bob Stolzberg - Wise Words from a Voice Pioneer
Future Ear Radio
Guest: Bob Stolzberg, CEO & Founder of VoiceXP Topic: Wise Words from a Voice Pioneer Bob Stolzberg joins Dave to share some of the key things he's learned across the first three years that Bob has been building voice experiences. Bob's company, VoiceXP, provides a do-it-yourself platform that allows anyone to easily create voice experiences for Alexa or Google Assistant on their own - as Bob refers to it, it's the "Wix/Squarespace of Voice." One of the key learnings that Bob shares is that it's best to keep your experience simple at the onset and not try to, "boil the ocean." Launching a voice experience is only half the battle, as the other half is making people aware of the experience via legacy marketing efforts. If you build it, they won't necessarily come. The two move onto what the future holds as we enter into this new decade and Bob believes that one of the biggest breakthroughs will be the vast increases in API's that voice assistants like Alexa and Google Assistant can tap into. This will reduce the friction for users to access voice skills, which means it will be much more compelling for businesses of all types to start creating voice experiences. In addition, Bob sees "in-situation" invocations becoming a compelling hook to get businesses to buy into building voice experiences. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/futureear/message

Sound in Marketing
In part two of this episode, we talked with Bob Stolzberg of VoiceXP about how Alexa Skills can both provide a service for your company as well as being a service to the community as a whole. It’s another place to make a name or a “voice” for yourself. Some great examples that Bob elaborated on was how cities and municipalities can use it for emergency management and response systems, how the government will be using it to get out election related information to the public. Politicians can relate direct from source information to their constituents. Even real estate agents and podcasters like myself can use these skills to push audience growth and to strengthen their network and pipeline.Bob also believes that the voice industry presents the biggest opportunities for women, minorities, and veterans. As Bob says, “Voice is a great way to get into a technical career without any prior experience”. VoiceXP isn’t just saying that, they’re taking action and supporting women to succeed.
