Amazon runs promotions every month to encourage people to build Skills and VoiceApps does the same. You can learn more about the contest each month by going to the Voice Apps Promotions page. They list Amazon's monthly promotions and their own promotions as well.

Having a proper privacy page is very important and using a professional email address will help you to standout and look creditable to your customers.

While creating a privacy page and professional email address is outside the scope of this training...I have GREAT news for you!

To make it as easy for you to get a Privacy Page and Professional Email address as it is to create an Alexa Skill, I've pulled a few strings for you.

I've contacted a company I do business with and they've agreed to create a privacy policy and unlimited email addresses for you.

You can go to the link in the description below to get these things created for you.

To Get Privacy Page and Professional Email Address go to the link below:

  • No experience or prior knowledge needed.
  • No programming knowledge needed.

The Voice revolution is changing the way we interact with our world.  Voice technology is in our homes, on our phones, in our cars, and in our's everywhere!  Amazon Alexa and Google Home devices will be used by over 50 million people this year and with competitors like Alibaba, Apple, and others on their heels, the number will continue to grow.

This course will teach you everything you need to know to build, monetize, and market Amazon Alexa Skills.

  • Why should I build Alexa Skills?

    At the time of this writing, there are only 45,000 Alexa Skills in the Amazon Skill store and many of those are very poorly written with very few users.  That's why it's important that you get in now!

  • I don't know how to write software.  Can I do this?

    In the past, creating an Alexa skill required a software engineer...

    Not anymore!  This course is going to show you how to create incredibly engaging, well-designed Alexa skills that will attract users and keep them coming back day after day... in minutes...without writing any code!

  • Can I make money from Alexa Skills?


    Of course, if you want to make money from your new Alexa Skill, you're going to need to add monetization features to it.   The documentation from Amazon on how to do this is very complicated and overwhelming.   

    We're going to show you how to add monetization to your skill in just a few short steps.  We've made it really easy!

  • How do people find my Alexa Skill?

    Most Alexa courses stop after they've taught you how to build your skill.  They don't talk about all the stuff you need to do to get people to actually use it!

    We are going to teach you how to get your first 100 users to your skill and how you can continue to get users for your skill each and every day!

  • Why should we trust you?

    We are a team of recognized experts in the voice industry.  Our team has developed and marketed some of the most popular and highest revenue generating skills on the Amazon Alexa platform.  We've developed over 100 skills ourselves and have helped thousands more develop their own skills.

    You're in REALLY good hands!

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone who wants to learn how to build Amazon Alexa skills. No programming knowledge is needed!
  • Anyone who wants to learn how to make money from their Alexa skills.
