Augmented Reality as a Marketing Tool – A Tech With Heart Episode by Michelle Calloway
Business owners are looking for new ways to stand out from the competition and create a memorable impression.
Consumers are looking for an experience, a connection with a product, or a company culture before they make a buying decision.
Stories connect people with one another, and in an online world, that story can be shared with millions of people in a matter of hours. Video stories are a great way to expand your reach and potentially impact more people.
Modern smartphone and video technology are making it easier than ever before to create and share snippets of stories to connect with others in an online digital world.
Video conferencing platforms like Zoom and Google Meets are also effective for connecting and sharing stories that build business relationships via virtual networking events, and one on one meetings
Video is the next best thing to meeting in person, but there is an even better way to enhance the power of video.
Videos allow people to communicate through body language and energetic frequencies. They tap into 3 major learning styles we have as humans – visual, auditory, and those that need to read text (on screen), in order to retain information.
Augmented reality experiences add fourth learning style – kinesthetic, those who learn through touch or experience.
Augmented reality technology does just that, it “adds to” or augments our reality by adding content to our environment that we cannot see with the naked eye.
With smartphone technology, business owners can use augmented reality to engage customers through gamification at in person events, or mail physical packages to event guests that are interactive when viewed through a smart device.
Augmented reality blends the physical world with virtual content, without requiring a user to put on a VR headset to be immersed in a virtual world. Think Iron Man (for Marvel fans).
Small businesses are now able to embrace augmented reality to enhance their video storytelling by making physical marketing materials interactive such as, business cards, postcards, event invitations, trade show banners, book covers, t-shirts, and packaging.
You need to see it to believe it! That is why Media Technology Strategist, Michelle Calloway, created an entire episode of Tech With Heart on the topic of augmented reality as a marketing tool.
In this episode, you will learn:
- Learn what drives consumers to make a buying decision
- Learn how augmented reality is the new Next Level Marketing tool
- Learn the various ways in which augmented reality can add value and create memorable experiences between brands and consumers.
