How much does it cost to get started in Immersive?

Laura Helm / 2 months ago

So, you’ve decided to get immersive in 2020. Great news!

Now, next step, what?, where?, how?, what? and perhaps most importantly, WHY?! These are all important considerations before you get started to ensure the output you create is measurable and meets expectations. However, that’s for another blog...

Whatever your motivation and KPI’s, you probably want to get an idea of how much things cost before you get started.

Whilst it's always tricky to estimate costs without a solid understanding of the brief,  we have attempted to break down some immersive projects you could do and identify a range of budgets and key considerations. Please note these are just guidelines.
