Mitch’s New Amazon Skill Flash Update

“There’s no future that doesn’t have ambient computing or voice activation … you have to get in early.” -Mark Cuban

 

Mitch Jackson Amazon Flash Briefing

My Amazon Skill aka Flash Briefing went live this week. It’s titled, “Trial Lawyer Communication Tips.” In each flash update on Amazon Echo, I share a short daily audio that include award winning trial lawyer advocacy and communication tips to help good lawyers become great trial attorneys and, smart business owners become better communicators.

To Listen Using Your Amazon Echo

To listen to the updates on your Amazon Echo, you can “enable” my flash briefing by going to Mitch.Today on your desktop, laptop, tablet or simply by using the Amazon Echo app on your phone. You can also use the search bar at the Amazon website to search for “Trial Lawyer Communication Tips” or “Mitch Jackson.” (tip- narrow your search results by using the search arrow to search only for “Alexa Skills.”

Regardless of how you get to my flash briefing, the next step is to “enable” it.

Then, the next time you want to listen to your flash updates using Amazon Echo, simply say, “Alexa, what’s my flash briefing” or “Alexa, what’s in the news,” and you’ll get my latest update along with any others you’ve enabled.

To listen Using Your Phone

From your phone, open the Amazon Shopping App. Note this is different from the Alexa App. The app looks like this in the app store:

Next, tap the white circle (iPhone) or microphone symbol (android) at the top right and enable your microphone. From this point forward, you can simply say, “Alexa, play my flash briefing.”

You can use the buttons to move ahead, go back, pause or stop.

In Conclusion

I believe voice is very cool. It’s going to change the world. If you’re not using an Amazon Echo or Google Home device, think about starting (but get an Amazon Echo because for now, that’s the only way you can listen to my daily flash briefings).

I have over a thousand tips I’ll be sharing over the next several years on voice. Frankly, I’m bitting at the bit to share them all with you.

However, if you have trial lawyer advocacy or business communication questions or issues you’d like me to cover, message me with the details and I’ll try to address your question or needs in an upcoming flash update!

Thanks!

Mitch

Social Media Has Changed How I Do Business and Try My Cases.

Attention spans and consumer expectations have changed drastically because of social media. Being successful in your practice and, inside the courtroom as a trial lawyer, requires you to understand, embrace, and harness these changes to make an impact with your audience and empower them to give you the result your client is looking for.

I shared a few thoughts about this and, the misguided mantra about “failing often and failing fast” that you can watch by clicking here. 

This is a clip from last month’s live video and podcast interview with lawyer and social media expert, Brad Friedman.
