Voice search and smart speakers
Voice-enabled search has been a growing force in digital media and search marketing for the past few years. By 2020, it’s estimated that 50 percent of searches will be conducted by voice. Like the transition to a mobile-first search landscape before it, voice search seems to be the next big thing for marketers.
Similar to how smartphones disrupted marketing strategies a decade ago, voice-activated smart speakers are poised to dramatically change the way brands connect with consumers. Smart speaker adoption is growing rapidly and users are increasingly leaning on these devices to help them research purchase decisions. If your brand hasn’t started implementing strategies to reach these consumers, now is the time to start.
