Catalogs Powered by Augmented Reality (AR) for Better Engagement and ConversionsDid you know that the average attention span of a millennial (1981-96 born) is just 12 seconds and that of the upcoming Gen Z (1997-2012 born) is even shorter at 8 seconds. How does one attract and engage audiences in such a short span? By speaking their language, by using Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR).
AR has become a major trend not only in games but also in retail. Why? Because of its experiential nature, it allows the customer to plunge in and experience the product or the brand. It helps attract and engage better with consumers. As per The Drum media, AR can capture people’s attention for more than 85 seconds, increase interaction rates by over 20%, and improve click rates in the shopping process by 33%.
Especially following the pandemic, AR was instrumental in simulating the in-store experience of trying out products. And this technology is here to stay because of its multiple benefits. They have come to become a powerful bridge between online and offline environments and helps brands create interactive and experiential catalogs that inspire either virality or sales.
