Alexa: Your new real estate personal assistant
You can do a lot with Alexa. From organizing meetings to setting reminders, Alexa can act as your all-in-one, virtual real estate assistant. Here are some creative ways to get the most out of yours
What if you could hire a virtual real estate assistant who is never late, doesn’t need sick days, is always cheerful, highly qualified and works for free? The good news is that you can – and her name is Alexa.
Sure, she’s handy around the house, turning on and off the lights, keeping track of your shopping list and helping your kids with their homework, but she can also be extremely helpful in your real estate business.
Alexa is the brains and the voice inside Amazon’s Echo speaker. There are a variety of Echo devices, from the basic to the advanced. Check out PCMagazine.com’s rundown of the differences between the models.
Once you own an Echo, you open your real estate business to a virtual real estate assistant who can take on some of the small tasks and help keep you focused.
Of course, you can start your day with Alexa, allowing her to wake you up in the morning and even let you snooze for an extra 15 minutes.
We know a writer (who shall remain unnamed) who asks Alexa to remind her to stop procrastinating every hour, on the hour. You can use this same “skill” in a number of ways.
Cold calling? Ask her to remind you when you can stop. Working on Facebook marketing? Devote a certain amount of time to the task and have her let you know when to move on to something else.
Then, all you need to do is say “Alexa, what’s on my calendar for today?”
There are several ways Alexa can help with basic admin tasks.
Organizing a team meeting can be challenging, but coordinating and launching one is something at which Alexa for Business excels.
“You can simply say “Alexa, start the meeting.” Alexa then “turns on the video conferencing equipment, dials into your conference call, and gets the meeting going,” according to Amazon’s Tara Walker.
Finally, consider creating your own Alexa skill for your real estate business. We show you how, right here at Easy Agent Pro.
