Harness voice search to grow your business. Let Sweet Rose Studios help you launch an Alexa skill to voice your big idea and cut through the noise.

Stay ahead of this growing market by launching an Alexa skill that will reach your clients where they want your voice to be heard.

What is an Alexa Skill?

Alexa is Amazon’s voice assistant implemented in devices like the Amazon Echo.

Alexa skills are voice-driven capabilities that you can enable, disable, and customize. Users can order food, plan a vacation, and send hands-free text messages, all with the sound of their voice.
