How to Use WealthVoice Bios – Marketing with Your Alexa Skill

Bios are a great way to feature people, products, services, FAQ, or evergreen content. Each Bio has two one-shot phrases based on its Name and Title. That way someone could ask to hear about you based on your first name only, your full name, or your job title.

Use Bios to educate people about your and your company, brand, products/services, or podcast. They’re wild card slots for whatever content you want accessible hands-free with a single phrase. Many customers feature one or two people and then their products or services. Two to three words is the ideal length for a name or title here.

Bios began as a way to feature people, like this WealthVoice bio from Michelle Gordon, CEO of Investably LLC (Quick Link – launch Money Mocha on Alexa):

Hear a Bio featuring a person (you can borrow copy from your LinkedIn bio or website “About Us” page)

Some WealthVoice customers got creative and began using Bios to highlight other content besides people. Example- Snappy Kraken has this Bio where they can share their latest products AKA marketing campaigns. The name and title are set, but the Snappy team can drop new graphics or audio anytime, making it dynamic content:

Name: The Newest Products
Display Name: Newly Released
Title: Marketing Campaigns

Here are the corresponding one-shot invocation phrases (people can use this to directly access a Bio without first asking Alexa to open the skill):
“Alexa, ask Snappy Kraken to tell me about the newest products.”
“Alexa, ask Snappy Kraken to tell me about marketing campaigns.”

Bio settings that you can choose in WealthVoice:

  • Name
  • Display Name
  • Title
  • Headshot (foreground image) – square, between 512×512 to 1080×1080 pixels
  • Background image (1080×720 pixels) or HEX code for a solid color (most common is to use your brand’s non-white primary color)
  • Audio or TTS (text to speech)

Important: After your skill is live, Bio name, display name, and title are hard coded, but you can update the audio and graphics anytime. If you have empty Bio slots, you can fill these in later (just email support at wealthvoice dot ai to resubmit your skill).
