Create. Reach. Captivate.
A recent survey shows that the majority of marketers fail to connect with people in ways that activate their emotions and ignite positive influence.
Clearly, the consumer landscape is changing, and brands are recognizing that they need to have a two-way relationship with their consumers.
The Havas brand survey of 1,500 global brands and more than 300,000 consumers established that consumers:
- Want to know who the brand is, what it stands for, and what the brand story is – and they want to be part of that story.
- Say they expect more from brands than just products.
- Want their brands to make a positive difference in the world and want a meaningful relationship with them.
However, consumers also feel that most content (58%) that brands put out into the world is not meaningful. It’s plain to see that brands and marketers need to rethink their content strategies.
Huge opportunities for AR and VR
Because of their immersive nature, AR and VR represent a powerful new storytelling medium. It lets brands invite an emotional response from consumers to deepen their positive sentiment.
AR and VR adoption is growing, and this tech is being integrated seamlessly into our lives. This will change how consumers relate to and interact with brands.

Choosing to incorporate AR and VR into your marketing isn’t an all-or-nothing proposition. Rather, you should think of VR and AR as a complement to your marketing – a new and exciting way to bring your audience into your story.
