Let’s discuss the highlighted statistics which I think are worth quick notes.

  • Voice search tends to yield sales for lower value items. This makes total sense for now as voice searches tend to be for more on the go quick searches.
  • Voice shopping will continue to trend upward, however, the $40billion figure is relatively low to where e-commerce sales are expected to be by 2022. However, this can change as consumer behavior changes. Its important to note that newer generations may adopt this behavior more and more which can impact products targeting that demographic.
  • 85% of consumers end up selection products that Amazon suggest. Understanding Amazon ranking signals, optimizing your listing for sales, ratings / reviews, and content will place your product really well within voice yielding sales.
