Overall Satisfaction with Alexa

We are in the preparation phase to launch different ad campaigns and expand our business to the next level. Learning about Alexa is one of the steps to prepare for our goals. We want to create a meditation mobile app serving the company's mission with Alexa. However, right now, our main focus is to increase traffic to our website and build a strong reputation before officially using Alexa. But it is on the list.
  • It is easy to navigate through Amazon Developer
  • Even for a non coder, it is very thorough and easy to go through setting up steps
  • Testing for Alexa is also awesome since you can use simulated websites for it instead of buying the actual device
  • Although it is easy to build an Alexa skill, in the end there is still some Java script coding involved. More instruction on that could help users finish building a skill. I had to spend a day looking up what things are for the final step. It was a bit time consuming
  • I am ready to write a full blown Alexa skill application to make money
  • I got exposed to the Web development environment of Amazon web service by learning Alexa
Alexa is the first type in its product category that I have used.
A solopreneur could easily use Alexa to start a business with low start-up cost and high ROI since Amazon has an enormous customer base. The person could conveniently find their group of customers that would be in need of their service. Technology students who want to excel in building phone application, Alexa would be a good practice.
