On Leveraging Voice Technology
Leo Burnett Chicago Strategy Director Chadi Saab discusses how the growing use of voice assistants continues to shape the marketing landscape
As the widespread adoption of voice-recognition technology continues, the way people search for everything from map directions to new shoes will shift accordingly. Voice technology has transformed the search engine's purpose from providing users with a list of results, to providing answers based off of intent conveyed through conversational cues.
For Leo Burnett Strategy Director Chadi Saab, the transition from sight and touch-based interactions to voice and sound has far-reaching effects, impacting both users and marketers. Users do not use keywords when talking with voice assistants, as they would in a traditional search bar. Rather, they speak to these devices with emotion and full sentences, expecting their device to provide direct answers. Saab sees this impacting marketers in two key areas: search-based and native advertising.
