Zoe Awards Festival to Present Winning Works on Amazon Echo Show
About twenty years ago, the Zoie Films Festival launched one of the first online film festivals to showcase films, animations, and documentaries from around the world. The films were streamed online and soon after, Zoie Films was streaming films and animations via cell phones. Pssst.. this was before smartphones and flip phones were the choice of most consumers. Naturally, the streaming was wonky.
The future is here and it’s all about VOICE, as in “hands-free, voice-activated, and data-driven” content. Enter Amazon Alexa.
Amazon Alexa, or voice assistants in general, are not merely a tool of convenience for checking the weather. Voice assistants are the shiny new keys to connecting us to our community, to our family and friends. Equally important, conversational AI and Amazon Alexa are valuable platforms for companies and brands to interact and grow their audience and to offer products and services to clients that spark engagement way beyond the basic website.
If you’re a business owner, brand, or new author, you can work with the producers and developers of Studio Carlton to have them create your own Amazon Alexa skill and be featured on Amazon Alexa. It’s a fun and creative way to engage, expand, interact with your audience, and promote your projects. It’s an innovative and out-of-the-box way of doing business. Remember when the world wide web launched? If you didn’t create a website, you were left behind. Think of Amazon Alexa and other voice platforms for your projects the same way. You’ll be missing out because voice platforms will soon be the priority for users to find content rather than getting a stiff neck querying the internet via their smartphones.
Studio Carlton Can Help You and Your Brand Harness AI And Voice Platforms For Your Stories
