STAGWELL MARKETING FRONTIERS
Mobile-enabled AR is transforming brand experiences. Forty-four percent of consumers report using an AR feature on a smartphone, with over 70 percent of younger generations (Gen Z and Millennials) reporting usage. What does this mean for today’s brands? That the vision of mixed-reality marketing won’t look like consumers, alone, plugged into headsets – more realistically, the future of mixed-reality is mobile AR.
For brands seeking dynamic new marketing approaches, Augmented Reality is the play to make – an immediately-applicable innovation that can uplevel how you engage with your customers. Today’s brands need to get conversant in mixed-reality experiences – fast.
