DJG partners with GetStarted to create voice-activated content experiences for marketing, HR and event leaders
Content marketing firm Digital Journal Group (DJG) and voice technology platform GetStarted announced a partnership to build voice-enabled experiences for brands wanting to reach audiences via smart home devices such as Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
The partnership will leverage DJG’s cross-industry content marketing and storytelling experience for leading B2B and B2C brands, and GetStarted’s technology platform that allows organizations to create dialogue and conversation via smart home devices.
“Voice is a really exciting space for us because it allows for totally new kinds of content experiences, as well as unique data insights that are possible as a result of the way people interface with content,” says Chris Hogg, President and Partner at DJG. “Up until now, a person’s interaction with their smart speaker has been largely query-based, where an individual asks for information such as weather, recipes or events in their calendar. Our partnership with GetStarted allows us to shape the experience on behalf of a brand, allowing an organization to have a conversation with a person around their interests.”
In Canada, 77% of the population is aware of smart speakers, and 26% own a device according to research from Edison Research and Triton Digital. In the United States, 80% of the population is familiar with smart speakers and nearly one quarter (24%) own a device.
The DJG-GetStarted partnership allows companies to connect their audience via the voice-activated speakers they already have in their home, so no additional hardware is required.
