Many brands seem to think that VR is primarily for gamers or that it requires heavy investment in technology to create and enjoy virtual experiences. This is no longer the case as access to smartphones, along with faster cellular service and powerful mobile processors means that the average consumer can now enjoy VR anywhere.
Virtual Reality marketing allows companies to bridge the gap between experience and action. You can use VR to offer a digital experience in place of a physical one, which can promote products and services.
As well as promoting existing products, you can also use VR to showcase those that are in development. You can invite your customers along on the journey as you create something new, this will help to get them invested in what you are creating. Just as beneficial you can even use these experiences to gain feedback on your developing products.

Rather than using ad blockers or clicking out of ads as quickly as possible, people seek out VR brand experiences. This means your engagement rates can improve as people come to you, rather than you needing to attract them.
