Virtual Reality and How to Use It Wisely

Marketers can now provide a fuller experience through Virtual Reality – showing their potential customers a specific place or event. With this new technology, marketers can reach out to new markets and get customers interested in what they present to them.

One market that is going to be very influenced by this new trend is the gaming industry. New games introducing the possibility to play using VR will allow players to enjoy this technology and play in a very ‘sophisticated’ way.

Facebook is showing more videos with the trend of displaying 360 videos on subjects that attract people and spark their interest in learning more about what they see. Perhaps in the future we will see VR introduced in our newsfeeds.

vr 2This new technology will introduce what normal photos or videos couldn’t show before: wider images, more context, and a very interesting approach to certain experiences. As an example, instead of just showing an image that says “Beautiful Hotel Near the Beach”, now companies can actually give potential customers a virtual tour and have them ‘experience’ what they have to offer, closing more deals and making the customer more intrigued.

If you offer trips, you can show the actual trip to potential customers and motivate them to travel. If you offer games, now you’re offering getting inside the game and seeing everything with your own eyes. If you offer products, you can develop strategies that involve seeing your product in VR and people engaging with it. The point is that this technology is here to stay and you can now offer an experience without necessarily purchasing it yet.

With more affordable options to acquire a virtual reality headset (one example being the Google Cardboard), it is possible for marketers to engage with this and incorporate it on their strategies. This will give brands a better opportunity to engage with their market. What are your thoughts about this?

The increase use of digital media

According to a comprehensive analysis by Morgan Stanley, 91% of people always keep their phone within  3 ft around 24 hours a day. Because communication systems have become ever more comprehensive and integrated, it makes sense that every day more and more people use their mobile devices to read news, listen to the radio, and watch the programs that they want to watch. The shift in the relative time people spend near “traditional media” is shrinking. It is predicted that in the year 2013 digital marketing would take close to 70 percent of all successful marketing campaigns, even those that have traditionally relied on printed media in the past.

As technologies make it possible for more and more people to have an integrated online experience, all marketing should focus around conveniently delivering to the customer the products and services in such a way that it require a minimal effort for him/her. As search engines provide more comprehensive services, for instance Google developing the Knowledge Graph, more and more people are expected to focus on the online image of a business before actually committing to do a local purchase decision. People use the internet to read reviews, get advice, and develop a perception of an establishment to decide if he/she wants to conduct business with the company.

It is important for your company to develop the right kind of online content and marketing strategy if you wish your company to be successful in the year 2013 and beyond. Business that fail to provide a significantly comprehensive service by taking advantage of online resources and tools, will see a drastic drop in their new clients. Do not let your competitors put you out of business, focus on developing an integrated online image that will attract new customers and increase brand loyalty with your existing clients.
