Get Instant Listeners To Your Flash Briefing!
Up until now, it just wasn’t possible for listeners to simply speak a command and have Alexa play your Flash Briefing, right? Not any more! Now, your listeners can play your Flash Briefing with one simple command.
I’m so excited to announce this groundbreaking new way to invoke your briefing by a direct request to Alexa. It removes the friction of enabling your skill before they listen for the first time.
It’s never been available before now, and it’s an Alexa Guy exclusive. And it works for podcasts, too!
That’s right, you can now provide an Alexa command that users can speak to instantly play your Flash Briefing’s latest episode, even if they haven’t enabled it.
I’m calling it “FASTFlash” and it’s going to allow you to market your Alexa Flash briefing in ways never before possible, such as:
When guesting on a podcast, mention your briefing and say
“To hear my Flash Briefing, just say ‘Alexa, open [Briefing Name].’”
Give a short description of today’s show and the FASTFlash command.
Provide your FASTFlash command on all your marketing materials, next to your Facebook logo.
And FASTFlash works for long-form podcasts, as well. Your user just says “Alexa, open [podcast name]” and your podcast starts playing immediately.
Your listeners can even pause and play by saying “Alexa, pause” and “Alexa, resume.” They can also listen to previous episodes by saying “Alexa, previous.”
