Virtual Reality is really starting to get some traction worldwide task management tool. You will see that you can leverage the popularity of Virtual Reality for your marketing campaigns.
How can you use Virtual Reality for Marketing?
AustechVR have had many clients take up the option of using Fully Branded Google Cardboard VR Headsets for events in 2016. Your customer immediately has a higher level of excitement at your event. They may know a little about VR but do not actually know what it can do. Or they could know a lot and are eager to show off it’s capabilities to others.
With the Google Cardboard VR Headsets you utilise the power of the attendees Smartphones. When the customer leaves the event, they will keep their Google Cardboard Headset that has your branding or the events branding printed onto the outside for everyone to see.
This sure beats handing out the usual pens, notepads, USB drives and the like. You can even produce your own VR or 360 video content to compliment your custom headsets.
