Voice Ads allow mobile users to talk back to ads, creating a new level of interaction  between advertisers and consumers. The Nuance Voice Ads SDK provides the backend power needed to created interactive voice ads, the question is, can marketers master the two-way ad conversation?

Its easy to push a video, banner or other ad to the user, controlling all aspects of the message, however creating a truly rich, interactive verbal back and forth beyond a simple “Do you like burgers” and a “yes I do” reply is a little more complicated.

The end game of any ad is to engender a positive response, whether it is to make an immediate purchase (click here and buy), a short term delayed purchase (buy a burger or go see a movie later today), or develop brand awareness for long term loyalty.

There are so many questions to ask, when do the voice ads distract so much from the game, they take a life of there own? How well will it actually work across all platforms?
