Smart speakers and voice assistants in general are turning out to be a more important consumer shift for radio than mobile. To give radio broadcasters a quick tutorial on how to succeed on Alexa, last week XAPPmedia held a 30-minute webinar which discussed key market data, listener stats and best practices related to putting radio on Alexa.
XAPP has helped launch over 800 Amazon Alexa radio skills over the past 12 months. These launches range from big radio groups like Cumulus and Scripps to regional groups and single stations like Radio Dubuque and The Journey. On May 1st, XAPP will hold our first webinar discussing what we learned launching 800 radio stations on Alexa.
After collecting responses from over 300 industry insiders about the future of internet radio and other streaming services, XAPPmedia and RAIN News held a free webinar to present the findings. The webinar, presented by Brad Hill of RAIN News and Bret Kinsella of XAPPmedia, covered topics ranging from time spent listening to the future of podcasting.
