The world of marketing and advertising has undergone groundbreaking transformation over the years due to evolving technologies. 

Now the brands are leaning towards AR (Augmented Reality) and VR (Virtual Reality) technologies for their marketing campaigns and promotions. Before we delve deeper, it’s time to put some light on these technologies and how implementing such technologies not just builds excitement and curiosity amongst TG but also increases engagement thus leading to top-of-mind brand recall and further conversion of sales. 

The usage of AR allows brands to give consumers unique and never witnessed before experiences with the convenience and comfort of tapping into their mobile phones. AR allows consumers to try products before they actually buy them. From trying on your favorite clothes to testing your favorite makeup looks and products, AR has got you covered at possibly all steps to innovatively interact and engage with the consumers. 

AR and VR have opened a lot of doors for companies to promote and advertise their brands in a new light. It provides an immersive experience by creating personalized experiences for their consumers.

Integrating AR has become an important factor for brands to promote their products

As the name suggests, AR is all about augmenting your reality and bringing figures and objects to life by just tapping into mobile devices.

On-pack promotions help the brand to stand out by providing consumers with innovative and immersive experiences.
