Everyone has some sort of device these days that you can speak into to get results. Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, Google Assistant; whether it's on your phone or it’s sitting in your home, they are everywhere. But how can you use them to your advantage?

There are 3 types of voice searches:

1) Direct: a voice command such as "Hey Alexa, call EZlocal" or "Ok Google, make a reservation at Olive Garden".

2) Discovery: searches such as "plumbers near me" or "what are the best hair salons near me?".

3) Knowledge search: a voice question such as "Siri, how often should I replace my windshield wipers?" Most customer conversions happen through Discovery and Direct search, however knowledge search can also drive traffic and convert customers when they are looking for your expertise on a topic.
