What Problems Does VoiceXP Solve?

Remember the website boom in the ’90s?  We do.  In a matter of a few short years, EVERY business had to build a website because so many people were getting online. If a business didn’t have a website, they were missing out on profits; so much so that some companies went out of business because they didn’t act quick enough.  The early adopters won big and it’s now mandatory to have a website.  Sound familiar?  We believe history will repeat itself.

Businesses today don’t know how to ‘get online’ with voice.  It’s hard!  Nor do they know how to use Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant to market and grow their business.  But we do, and we’ve figured out the killer apps of voice. We built the features that drive business into a SaaS platform that can help any business under the sun become Voice Champions!

What They’re Saying

Customer Results and Benefits

Effective Marketing Campaign

The Alexa Marketing Campaign in a Box excited the entire channel.  Our partners and sellers love it!

Tina Smith

VP of Marketing, CenturyLink

Differentiate Your Brand

Our customers loved the Echo Show and Alexa Skill. We bundled it with our Holiday gift campaign.  They said they had never seen anything like it before.

Oliver Muenz-Winkler

Director of Communications, Clayco

Generate More Leads

It’s easier for people to learn about our properties and contact a leasing agent using Alexa than it is our website.  When someone says “contact a leasing agent”, our leasing agent gets a text with the leads phone number in real-time.

Jassen Johnson

CEO, Tower Real Estate Group

Make It Easy For Your Customers

We worked with VoiceXP to be the first law firm in the world to have an Alexa skill.  It helped our firm differentiate and generate leads.  It was easy to fit into our existing marketing activities. People ask me about it all the time.

Mark Cantor

CEO, Cantor Injury Law

Get More Foot-Traffic To Your Booth

Using the CenturyLink Alexa Skill at our tradeshow booth definitely brought more people in and it was easy to have Alexa tell them about what we do and our products.

Andy Watson

Sr. Product Manager, CenturyLink

Disrupt Your Industry

I was the first platinum music artist to have an Alexa skill.  That’s historic.   I can see every artist having their own voice experience in the future.  It’s a better way to engage the fans and control my content.

Chingy

Platinum Recording Artist, Columbia Records

They needed to enable people to get information without having to go to the building or remember a website. It allowed them to differentiate their property, be innovative, attract millennials, and generate leads for the leasing agents. VoiceXP helped them create an Alexa skill that didn’t just generate mega press, it also brought in a lot of leads and set the bar for their industry.

The City of Ozark, Missouri was the first Chamber of Commerce to adopt voice.  They wanted to use new technology to make it easier for their audiences to get information about the City of Ozark.
