Mobile Visual DiscoveryThe power to unlock the physical world around us forinteractivity and engagement Updated January 2012
What is blippar?A technology • Mobile visual discovery: uses the smart phone camera like an ‘eye’ to recognise and instantly unlock physical images for spontaneously pulled, interactive content experiences • Fastest tech in world today with broadest range of applications • Measurable to the very last blipp
What is blippar?A game-changing new content medium • One platform. One app • One cumulative audience of ‘blippees’ – not an app-by-app approach • Content is king – reward and delight the customer with the right content• A behaviour • To blipp: a fun new verb, rapidly being adopted by consumers, brands and media-owner
What is blippar?A strategic partner •Global leader in this space. • With 100s of paying clients. • Working with some of the most creative agencies in the world. • With international expansion, offices in America – a global vision. • Big name investors Qualcomm •Unlike an app developer/ SDK provider – our learnings are reinvested for continued conversion improvement
Blippar is quite new…About a year or two….. Updated January 2012
“I sell here, Sir, what all the world desires… to have POWER.”(Matthew Boulton 1776) Updated January 2012
But it is NOT… a QR code…• 3 reasons why this is NOT QR.• QR codes are to static experiences.• Blipp’s stream anything you want.• QR codes are not geo location tags.• Blipp’s are “culturally” tagged.• QR codes are ugly.• Blipp’s are not. They are beautiful..
But it is NOT… a QR code…You can Blipp off Anything… We might just change the world…
“Know thyself?” Who said this.First one to answer at endwith the right date wins a prize…. ;) Updated January 2012
“Know myself?” Who said this. Me. Just now.So who do I work for? Updated January 2012
So that’s me…Why did I come to work with Blippar? As they are the Best. Best tech – won awards. Best ideas – won awards.Best company – not yet but will do.
Why?• Why did I tell you all that?• Because I want you to know you can ask me any questions.• But I gotta go – so grab a card from me – or email me at dan@ blippar.com• And....• These slides show some of the traits that I believe we need in modern marketing…• It’s all about being specialists in what we know.• It’s all about being “social as standard”• It’s all about understanding the “importance of mobile.”
Social stats attack…• 1. Nielsen estimates that social media and blogs reach 80% of all active US Internet users (There are 245 million).• 2. One in every seven minutes spent online is spent on Facebook.• 3. 94% of students are on social media platforms, I wonder who the other lot are?• Blippar is the bridge from print to social.
“The importance of mobile…”• 1. 4.8 billion people now own mobile phones. Just 4.2 billion own a toothbrush.• 2. British schoolchildren are reported to be more confident using an iPhone than tying their shoelaces.• 3. In January 2012 - there were are more iPhones sold per day than people born in the World.• Blippar is the bridge from print to mobile.
But is mobile more than that?• 97% of us sleep with our smartphones within 3m’s or less of us.• Cindy Gallop said “Mobiles are an extension of ourselves”• She believes “We all love notifications because they make us feel loved and special.”• 30% of women would rather give us sex than their mobile phone – 13% of men…
Important things to rememberBlippar is the bridge point…Between print and the mobile experience.Blippar is the platform…Which links experiences into social activation.Blippar is not augmenting all reality…We work with visual discovery - making print come alive.We are not AR.
Why we don’t like the termAR… reality is clumsy and old fashioned.AugmentedMost people on the streets don’t understand it.Even when they do AR has many applications.We do mobile visual discovery… think…Print Magic. Print coming alive.The Harry Potterifaction of Print.Supercharging Print with Mobile.

Biggest reason to do this new type of mobile marketing? Based on guerrilla marketing principles and the ideas of NLP 68
Social Augmented RealityHold up your phone – or blink your eye and getThe knowledge of joining a crowd and knowing:• Who do I know here?• Where do I know them from?• Who should I get to know?• Who here is single?• Are there any naked pictures of them on the internet?
As designers / creatives / developers you can choose sides
Or will we? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9c6W4CCU9M4Google Project Glass
Google Glasses – anyone?• Google’s Project Glass promises to be the biggest innovation within this sector in 2012, so we also wanted to gauge general consumer interest in Google’s glasses.• The results reveal that almost a third of consumers are still undecided on the merits of the technology and only one in six would be ready to buy a pair of glasses from Google if they were available today.• Interestingly, around a quarter of men are ready to don a pair Google Glasses versus just one in ten women, with many claiming they would feel self- conscious wearing them.
The RIGHT NOW futureThe Behavior • User habitually ‘blipps’ the flat, static world around them • Content is developed with this medium specifically in mind • Media is bought according to how it converts • One app. One call-to-action. One cumulative audience acquired to the appThe Business • Series A investment this winter • International expansion - US Q3-4, 2012, ROW, Q1 2013 • ‘blipps’ built directly by brands & media owners around the world on an open self-service platformHow? blipp
This is just the beginning. “The Best is Yet to Come.”Rather a cool speech wasn’t it.
