Ever heard about AR Wearable Display Ads? Here’s why you should

April 3, 2024

Wearables display ads

Embarking on the journey of Wearable Display Ads marks a groundbreaking shift in the domain of fashion marketing. Let’s first unravel the mystery: “What exactly are AR Wearable Display Ads?”

What Exactly are AR Wearable Display Ads?

In essence, AR Wearable Display Ads represent a groundbreaking blend of fashion and digital innovation, offering augmented reality (AR) based Virtual Try-On Experiences. This enables consumers to virtually experience wearing products.

The foundation for Virtual Try-On Ads was laid by major technology corporations like Google, Snapchat, and Meta. These companies provided the initial platform for such interactive advertising experiences. However, recent advancements and solutions from platforms like Aryel have broadened these capabilities significantly, enabling brands to deploy these immersive experiences across the broader web at a much larger scale.

The Clear and Hidden Advantages of AR Wearable Display Ads

The most straightforward benefit of AR Wearable Display Ads lies in the intimate connection they foster between the product and the consumer. Take luxury items, for example: the feel of a watch on the wrist, or the texture of a fabric are crucial in making a purchase. Aryel’s AR Wearable Display Ads digitally replicate this tactile experience, warming up potential customers to the concept of ownership through virtual interaction.

But the advantages of Aryel’s technology go beyond the obvious.

These ads are not limited to the open web; they offer an immersive experience within the ad itself. When a potential customer comes across a AR Wearable Display Ads, they can virtually try on products such as sunglasses or hats, directly within the banner ad. No need to navigate away from the page to immerse themselves completely. This approach not only maintains user engagement with the original content but also ensures that the traffic stays on the host website, potentially increasing conversion rates at the point of interaction.

This seamless integration means that every banner has the potential to become a virtual fitting room, an AR- Atelier, a private showcase where the consumer can connect with the product without the friction of navigating away from their current online journey. For brands and publishers, this means retaining valuable traffic that might otherwise be lost, while for consumers, it translates into an uninterrupted online experience.

Furthermore, when used on the open web, these ads can utilize contextual targeting, either through direct buys or programmatic methods, improving the relevance and targeting efficacy of advertising campaigns. This extends the ads’ reach beyond the confines of walled gardens, providing a strategic edge in the competitive digital advertising landscape.

The Unexpected Role of AR Wearable Display Ads in Data Enrichment

Moving to an unexpected aspect of AR Wearable Display Ads: Data Enrichment.

Aryel’s venture into this arena isn’t merely about offering an innovative advertising medium; it’s also about acquiring insightful data. Brands can now delve into specific details: What is the Conversion Rate from individuals with certain physical features living in specific regions?

This is more than a marketer’s aspiration; it’s the new standard. Aryel’s AR Wearable Display Ads solutions employ the front-facing camera for more than just interaction. They analyze and interpret consumer reactions to the ads—be it a smile, a look of surprise, or a confused expression. This process complies fully with GDPR regulations. Aryel’s AI doesn’t just capture these emotional responses and facial patterns; it converts them into a comprehensive data set. Every reaction, every subtle expression, and each interaction becomes a valuable data point for Aryel’s analytical framework. The possibilities are immense: a fashion brand can discern which product features elicit the most positive reactions and identify the demographic most likely to engage with specific types of AR Wearable Display Ads. This isn’t just raw data; it’s Actionable Intelligence.

Such insights can influence production decisions, inform design modifications, and even reshape entire marketing strategies. In the right hands, these insights unlock new levels of personalized advertising. The profound impact of this detailed data collection is significant. For the fashion industry, where trends change rapidly, this could mean an unprecedented responsiveness to consumer preferences. For consumers, it signals an era of advertising that is more personalized and responsive to their individual needs.
