This month’s Blue Paper, podcast and infographic from promotional products retailer 4imprint entitled, Augmented reality: Engaging the real and virtual worlds, offers an inside look at an emerging new marketing trend known as augmented reality, which seeks to enhance customer experience with the help of image recognition software inside mobile devices.
Slowly but surely augmented reality has made its way onto the marketing stage. A number of companies have begun experimenting with this new phenomenon which seeks to engage the customer more thoroughly and even interact with them. Senses of touch, sight, sound, smell and taste combine with a digital experience. Augmented reality provides consumers with the latest deals and up-to-date information, enhanced product demonstrations, a view beneath the surface of a product, or an interactive social media experience.
“Augmented reality is a growing marketing trend in today’s marketplace,” says Greg Ebel, vice president of sales and marketing for 4imprint. “This Blue Paper is meant to help people better understand what augmented reality is and how companies are using it now.”
The Blue Paper and podcast define augmented reality and then go on to discuss a variety of issues surrounding it including:
- The benefits that come with an augmented reality marketing campaign
- How it inspires greater interactivity
- The advantages of operating in real-time
- How augmented reality increases trackability

- And more
