How Marketers Can Use Augmented Reality to Their Advantage

Serena Garner, Y Media Labs

The world of advertising has been in the midst of developing for several years now. With the multitude of types of media vying for consumer attention, top creative digital agencies are rushing to keep up with innovation at every turn. One of the most recent strategies to emerge is augmented reality companies launching marketing campaigns with everyday brands. Untouched Marketing Potential Augmented reality truly entered the consumer conscious with the advent of Pokémon Go. In the game, adding imagery to the real world encourage users to immerse themselves more fully and engage more greatly with the experience. This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the possibilities augmented reality offers. The marketing potential for augmented reality enhancement is predicted to be almost a trillion-dollar industry in the next ten years. As brands discover new ways to integrate their messaging with how users consume media, augmented reality will create incredibly detailed advertising experiences tailored to individual consumers. American consumption of media has reached an all time high, and augmented reality offers the promise of sustained contact and connection at any time of day. Major companies are already exploring new ways of enhancing shopping experiences. Products like Google Lens, which can identify objects with a phone camera, will provide instant access to consumers to a wealth of information about what product they’re focusing on. Meanwhile, the marketers utilizing this technology gain consumer insights, like how long users are viewing their products and what other products they viewed, all in real-time. By integrating this idea with  glasses equipped with augmented reality software, the way we see the world will be changed.  The headset market is already projected to hit 500 million sales in the next ten years. Bringing augmented reality technology outside of the smartphone expands its application, utility, and ease of use for consumers. Understanding Consumers Like Never Before Apple has released ARKit, a new platform for developers to create augmented reality experiences. The framework can recognize the visual space around an iPad and blend new objects and information directly into this real-world setting. What the ARKit’s development signifies is the start of shopping and advertising becoming an immersive experience. With augmented reality technology becoming more accessible, it makes it easier for marketers to harness its power for highlighting brands in stores or even sending information and imagery to headsets as customers walk down the street. With augmented reality development, the opportunity also exists for enhancing a brand’s market research. With integration of GPS, for instance, a company can know where a consumer is located at a given moment and then offer nearby discounts or opportunities. As they build detailed consumer profiles, they will be able to not only respond to individual needs, but also anticipate them. These new products will use machine learning and artificial intelligence processes to deliver the things that matter to consumers most. Imagine reading a book review, then being offered ways to purchase the book seamlessly. Or, watching a video about a vacation spot, and your augmented reality glasses highlight a travel agency when you pass one later in the day. Augmented reality takes the pre-existing benefits of audience targeting and increases them by providing  immediate feedback based on real-time behavior. Online shopping will become a more confidence-inducing experience, too. Imagine being able to see how a sofa will look in your living room in accurate scale and design before you get it home. Already, shoemakers are offering customizing opportunities that let buyers see completed designs before they’ve ordered. This  reduces product returns and increases sales conversions, which all hints at improved customer satisfaction and loyalty. Managing an AR Marketing Strategy Another opportunity for innovation will be companies that understand how to make sense of all this data for the consumer. Instead of being bombarded by floating ads, highlighted merchandise, or random media at every turn, consumers will need trusted software that will curate all this information into a more streamlined, personalized experience. These firms will join forces with brands and companies to provide creative, informative, and customizable augmented reality experiences with enormous sales potential. Marketing professionals will need to be work with both the management platforms and brands to produce strategies that target consumers with precision. Additionally, they will need at least a basic understanding of augmented reality technology, its related hardware, and how best to utilize its features for improving their marketing strategy. AR Marketing is Already Happening A recent DeLoitte survey demonstrates that companies are moving into the augmented reality space. Almost 90% of mid-size firms surveyed indicated that they are already deploying augmented and virtual reality enhancements to their products and marketing. The time is now for exploring how your brand will leverage augmented reality in a marketing strategy. This can pertain to advertising, how people interact with your products or services, or any other form of augmented reality’s vast applications. Regardless of the route you take, augmented reality continues to prove its potential in marketing as an engagement and ROI booster. +MORE

Experience - Consumer Loyalty system through Biometrics and a Neural Network

Zegura

In an increasingly transparent operating environment, independent retailers must find innovative ways to advance the consumer experience as a means of competitive differentiation. The customer experience is the next competitive battleground. It's where business is going to be won or lost. It comes down to two things: being found and being remembered. When a business stands out in their market, their consumers can easily find them and, because they have differentiated their business, the consumer will remember them and return. We developed the only Biometric Consumer Loyalty solution in the world that incorporates 3-dimensional face detection to analyze and detect through a novel neural network. You will be amazed at the speed, accuracy, and scale at which it can perform. Thereby enabling real-time awards or recognition to loyal customers as they are seen by the system. Imagine being able to automate the experience of your customers by creating a series of events as they walk through the door. Take for example it is one of the customers birthdays that day. Logic says we would have already emailed them an incentive to come by. But what if when they were recognized at the door it would automate the digital signage to then communicate in bold bright letters HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Or maybe, in addition, to page a certain greeter to the door to verbally communicate HAPPY BIRTHDAY!     +MORE
