Digital Marketing trends are constantly evolving, what worked a few months ago is obsolete now. Oftentimes small businesses find themselves trying to keep up with trends in order to differentiate themselves from competitors. They desire to surprise and delight potential customers to increase sales conversions.

AR Marketing (Augmented Reality Marketing) is the latest trend that is captivating audiences. But what exactly is AR Marketing?

Get to know AR Marketing

AR Marketing is the name given to the integration of Augmented Reality technology with physical materials or geographic locations. It may look like physical business cards that COME ALIVE upon being viewed through a smartphone, or a banner at a trade show that becomes interactive, providing valuable information and rewards for engagement. Any marketing material can be fused with this technology.

Remember Pokemon Go, and how it became a phenomenon? That is the power of augmented reality. It is innovative, disruptive, and original. AR can be part of amazing marketing strategies to provide brands an option to build immersive, interactive experiences for clients. 

But why go into AR Marketing?

  2. Guide purchase decisions for your customers: Imagine you’d like to buy a sofa or coffee table and you had the opportunity of visualizing everything in your living room just by using your phone! Wouldn’t that be amazing? Well, AR can be a great way to guide clients through their online purchases and help them make secure choices! (which also reduces return rates!)
  3. It helps you save on marketing costs: Yes! Innovation doesn’t have to be expensive! Did you know that AR Marketing is more cost-effective in comparison to traditional marketing?

So, this new year we have reinvented ourselves! Our augmented reality marketing app now has a new engine and a new way of viewing interactive marketing materials.

The concept remains the same, turning ordinary print materials into dynamic, interactive storytelling experiences, however, the functionality of the AR app no longer requires new users to download an app from the App Store or Google Play Store to view the activated materials.

REVEALiO is now using WebAR – a browser-based augmented reality technology that DOES NOT require viewers to download an app from the app store to experience the magic.

Why REVEALiO Made the Switch to Web AR App?

We’ve been in the business of providing AR experiences for the small business owner and one main piece of feedback that has been constant for us is that at least 80% of small business owners said that they would use REVEALiO if it didn’t require users to download an app. 

We heard them loud and clear! And for the past year, we have worked really hard to improve our AR experience and be able to offer it to even more business owners who would greatly benefit from AR marketing.

Now users can either scan a QR code or go directly to to watch marketing materials COME ALIVE! Watch demo video below.

Our commitment continues to be towards small business owners who would perhaps have a limited budget and our original native AR engine was no longer available at a price point that was affordable. We are committed to offering quality, and accessibility and to making it affordable! Who said being edgy and advanced has to be expensive? 

Our dedication to providing dynamic, interactive experiences led to the development of our proprietary WebAR engine which is available now in the 3.0 version of REVEALiO!

What does this mean for you?

Well, with this new version of REVEALiO, you can view our AR features directly through the web browser on your phone! This translates into more accessibility for everyone, making the experience seamless for all users. 

A lot of people may shy away from AR due to the hassle of having to download an app to view it, but now they can simply access it from their browsers. 

Also, as mentioned before our goal was also to remain affordable! So with this new version, you get more accessibility and quality, while still maintaining the affordability of our services. A true win-win situation!
