Audio branding for a voice-first future

We will be touching on branding again today is this flash briefing, it’s an interesting subject in the state voice technology is today. I think that a lot of players right now won’t be the biggest winners later on, but, as you guys might know already, because I say it constantly, it’s really imperative to be in the platforms and to start defining your strategy, so it’s always interesting to me to talk about how brands are reacting to this wave.
