If you are targeting to implement voice search on your website in 2019, then ensure the site is SEO friendly, and its rating is high in Google ranking.

To implement voice search connectivity, it is compulsory that your website should load first before any competitors website opens. Make sure that your site is using HTTPS.

Another vital precaution in using voice search is to use precise answers to the customer’s queries. The use of voice should be done in perfect accord to keep the customer’s behavior in mind. Whether he is looking for an elaborated answer to his question or wants one sentence answer? The final purchase depends on your response.

To create customer’s choice videos, get into the shoe of the ordinary user and think of what kind of information they will be expecting in a video. Release product demos, Live Q/As and another promotional video for receiving instant responses from customers.

To make a compelling video, first, create a strong content strategy by scratching your brains to put relevant content. Keep in mind, that video is a starting point for marketing and promotion of your product. Step two is to pick the platform which can be useful for your product.
