WordPress and Amazon Alexa - Give Your Site a Voice

One of the first things we learn is how to talk; before we can read, we can listen. The power of the spoken word plays a critical role in how we understand the world and each other. Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant give us a new way to reach our audiences, even if they're brushing their teeth or making dinner. We can share content and create interactive experiences that engage through natural language. I'll share my experiences using voice technologies, and how we can use WordPress to create voice apps and deliver our content through this new medium.

Presented by Tom Harrigan

OPENING PRESENTATION:  Up Your Sales Process

The pitch and proposal process can be overwhelming and time consuming for small businesses and freelancers. Learn how to improve your proposals, reduce the time it takes to create them and stop pitching for projects that won’t benefit you.
