Have a Holly Jolly with Amazon Polly

“SANTA! I know him!”

These are the immortal words of Buddy the elf in the 2003 holiday classic, Elf. But we all know Santa, right? We know he lives at the North Pole, we know he loves milk and cookies. (Possibly too much) He is married to Mrs. Claus, he supervises an army of toy-making elves and has a strong relationship with his magical flying reindeer.

For many, Santa is the face of Christmas, at least the commercial aspect. When you think Santa, you think of gifts, of spending time with loved ones and tearing open wrapping paper comfortably next to the fire.

Now what if Santa could go to work for your business? Sure he's busy checking the naughty and nice list, but Santa always has time for a little side-hustle. Now with TeleSign and Amazon Polly, you can do exactly that!

TeleSign + Amazon Polly

Amazon Polly is the next generation of text to speech. Text to speech (TTS) as a technology has existed for years, but it came off rather robotic, like the evil computer HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Now with Amazon Polly, TTS finally sounds human. Furthermore, Polly supports dozens of voices and languages, and now with TeleSign's voice integrations the potential marketing capabilities are only capped by the creativity of your copywriters.

So let's go back to Santa and let me outline a scenario. Maybe you own a massive online ticketing company and your users have opted in to receive updates about new events and sales promotions. Now with TeleSign's Voice API and Amazon Polly you can send voice messages to your users from none other than Kris Kringle himself alerting them that concert tickets are an outstanding gift for Christmas AND they fit in a stocking.

Sounds a bit more effective than a standard email blast, no?The holidays are upon us, our nights are consumed with decorating trees and watching Christmas Vacation for the 731sttime. Why not lean into the holiday fever to drive some sales? ‘Tis the season to be merry, and with Saint Nicholas himself providing you with the assist, it should be a Merry Christmas for your business indeed!
