Worldwide Monetization of Alexa Skills
If you want to attract talent from anywhere in the world, you need to make the revenue possible anywhere in the world as well, as the viral interaction of that culture leads to the spreading of Alexa to other cultures around the world.
This feels like a handicap and a reason to develop for the competition.
We came up with 2 x creative ideas to monetize our Skill, only to be told of Alexa's limitations.
Add a Amazon Kindle book to the users cart within the Skill. The Skill is not supporting the retail flow of Amazon products. Which should be seamless.
Our In-Skill Purchase idea is only available to US users only. WHY? Massive limitation. I see a massive drop in sales here because my Skill is worldwide applicable. That means Amazon is also missing out on Worldwide sales.
