+94% conversion rate
The conversion rate with AR content is 94% higher than products without AR

The future of retail will be all about the experience, connecting the physical and the digital to create a seamless customer journey. With the accelerated trend of consumers preferring to shop online, virtual stores will increasingly become a new sales channel for retailers – making their in-store experience accessible and shoppable from anywhere at any time – thereby broadening the consumer reach and increasing the ROI. 

At the same time, the in-store experience will need to give consumers a compelling reason to visit, deploying XR experiences such as hologram personalised assistance, QR activated stock exploration and Pokémon Go style games to drive footfall and engagement.

You can cater to the audience via lenses and effects on social platforms such as Snap, Instagram or TikTok, or via a brand’s own website or app. Read more…
