It’s predicted that by 2022 over 50% of all searches will be done through voice search. If your website, blog, Amazon listing, social media, and landing pages aren’t optimized for voice search, you are going to be on Google’s chopping block. This workshop will teach you how to use voice search to your advantage as an author.
