KCDMA Presents Heather Physioc: The Meteoric Rise of Voice Search - How It Works, Why Brands Should Care & How to Act On It

Tuesday, October 10 @ 11:15 am - 1:00 pm • Organized By Kansas City Data-Driven Marketing Association (KCDMA)
4740 Grand Avenue, Kansas City, MO 64112


Voice queries have increased 3,400% in Google since 2008. There will be an estimated 30 million voice-powered intelligent assistants in U.S. homes by the end of 2017 using voice search technology, not including in-car and smartphone assistants. Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana, Amazon Alexa, and Apple’s Siri are becoming second nature as people learn to search using their voices in conversation with their mobile and in-home assistant devices like Google Home.

Find out how people use voice search, what does it means for brands, and how can companies act on it through search engine optimization at the October KCDMA lunch and learn.
