The first step towards creating your Alexa Skill or Alexa Flash Briefing for your brand, start-up or small business, is to create an Amazon Alexa Developer Account.
It's one of the easiest possible steps in the entire experience of building Alexa Skills, but it still feels good to get started and know that you're in the right place.
First, go to https://developer.amazon.com. It will redirect you to a log-in page. Here is where you click the "Create an Account" button.
After filling out your username and password, you will be sent a one-time password (OTP) to your email account. After entering in your one-time password, you'll fill out your Developer Account's profile information and agree to the Terms and Conditions.
Your account has been created. Now to start building Alexa Skills, visit the Third Tab from the left, called "Alexa" and click "Alexa Skills Kit." You will then be taken to your Amazon Alexa Developer Dashboard, where you can click "Create Skill" and get started building your Alexa Skills!
Thanks for reading, watching and listening, and have a great day!
