Voice Faces Significant Barriers As A Marketing And Shopping Tool

June 14, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Drum Agency chief strategy officer, Dave Randolph, is skeptical virtual assistants will quickly have a massive impact on shopping. He claims technology, notably AI and bandwidth, are too inadequate for consumers to meaningfully interact with voice-activated devices. He also points out that many of the worries raised about voice-shopping – loss of visual cues, ability of Amazon to promote its own products, importance of ratings – are all factors already faced online. He suggests that marketers do not need to ‘fully dive in’ until voice technology advances greatly, becomes more ubiquitous and offers much more significant benefits to consumers.[Image Credit: © Thomas Kolnowski]
