About AR Advertising and Branding
Augmented Reality advertising and promotions are immersive and engaging, which generates emotional connections with consumers. By providing a mobile interaction, consumers enjoy the brand messaging similar to a gaming experience. Ultimately, this builds brand awareness, which is shared on social media and conveys an overall positive message to the target audience. Using AR to bring logos to life with video messages or animated objects provides a dynamic platform to continually convey a corporate message and/or the benefits of a produce or service effectively and easily.
With AR, agencies can:
- Bring a catalog, print advertisement, or brand package to life by using AR to offer special content, videos and even coupons.
- Use an AR Story (Scavenger hunt) to encourage consumers to engage with a brand throughout a physical or digital location and enter a sweepstake to win a prize.
- Advertising and Promotional Content can easily be changed anytime to promote specific campaigns, seasonal programs, or other special engagement opportunities.
