In the words of Mugatu, Virtural Reality (VR) “is sooo hot right now!” The world’s biggest brands are all experimenting with how it can help them engage consumers and ultimately improve their bottom lines.
This is mostly because VR and AR offer a deeper level engagement that is more immersive than we’ve ever seen before.
Melanie Cook, Head of Strategy at SapientNitro Southeast Asia, hosted a breakfast at the Singapore office to share how brands can take advantage of VR experiences.
The talk, part of SapientNitro’s #whatsticks series, was broken down into the four steps that every brand or agency needs to take to make sure their VR experience is a hit;
1. Define a specific use
2. Create a tangible value exchange
3. Think like the cohort of 3d thinkers
4. Get your ducks in a row
(The user experience has to be outstanding, the commercials have to line up and the entire organisation needs to work together to make it happen.)
Melanie doesn’t advocate that the brands should only focus on VR, “Your brand story should continue to be experienced in mobile, print, digital, data visualisation, infographics, multimedia, video, gaming, podcasting, social etc.”.
