As metaverse news tops the headlines, brands around the world are on a beeline to learn more about it. But there’s chaos as everything that’s been done until now needs to be started from scratch in the new world. This applies especially to branding and marketing as brands have to adapt to new forms of communication with the audience.
To help labels with branding in the metaverse, we’ve put together an article. It simply explains and clears some of the doubts floating around. In this blog, learn more about the following:
Unlike any other, the metaverse is a cluster of various technologies working together in synchrony. The technology includes blockchain and NFTs, AI which is a union of neuroscience and computer science, and perceptive AR, and VR. The digital infrastructure of the metaverse is directly proportional to the development of these emerging technologies.
Consequently, this makes brands on their toes every time there is a new update. In short, brands have to keep up with the novelty and seamlessly integrate it into their promotional efforts.
The founding idea of the metaverse is that people can use their avatars to explore the virtual world. In other words, it is a destination in which one can experience things that they cannot in the real world. If ones want to put the metaverse in the light of branding, experience is what everyone’s eyes should be on.
Therefore, the metaverse is and will evolve into an amazing platform for interesting experiences for brands and buyers.
While the metaverse is an experience hotspot for users, it will be a station of e-commerce conversion for the brands. Through the immersive experience and branding in the metaverse, brands can build an army of loyal customers.
It sounds very similar to real-world operations, except it has one more additional dimension to it- 3D. As the metaverse is 3D realistic world, buyers can interact with products in all three dimensions. This not only boosts their choice confidence but also offers fun in the action.
One more angle in changes that metaverse brings which is underseen is its influence on the internal processes of a brand. To do branding in the metaverse, companies should either establish a new department. Or they can collaborate with 3D studios that are like us that have both experience and expertise.
As a result, the flow of marketing strategy, information, and channels of communication will be new.
Metaverse is going to be a part of customers’ lives, brands and economy.
Industries that can benefit from Metaverse Branding
If you are a brand from the fashion or luxury industry, then metaverse has a lot to offer. Talking about fashion, brands can introduce their collections digitally and measure the audience’s likes or dislikes. Especially, these days, many young customers are preferring digital fashion, as they allow them to be both flexible and creative.
For luxury brands, the metaverse can turn into a safe space for promotions. To explain it better, it can better prevent counterfeits as they can advertise new collections as NFTs. These tokens permanently tucked away in blockchain records will help brands identify fake goods both in there and in real life.
Some of the brands that have already started to have a presence are Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, and so on.
Another industry that can innovatively market its products is the home appliance industry. Often thought of as the least creative promotion, metaverse can help change the tide. Your brand can lively show the features of your latest product, how it works, and so on. In addition, you can also visualize how your brand’s legacy is woven into the product’s creation.
Leading home appliance brand, Samsung has launched a metaverse-based home decorating service, together with Zepto. In a marketing move in the metaverse, the campaign ‘My House’ allows users to customize the arrangement of appliances.
The core goal of the metaverse is to recreate the real-world experience on an enhanced and imaginative level. Automobile brands can cleverly use this to their advantage. Brands can create immersive and interactive VR experiences in the metaverse, allowing the drivers to fully enjoy the ride virtually. As a result, the liking for a specific brand can improve when moved to real life.
Also, metaverse makes it easy for these brands as it’s not always easy to portray the locomotives in the desired way. Popular brands like Audi, Nissan, Toyota, and Mclaren have already started their digital marketing in the metaverse.
Leading industries that can benefit from branding in the metaverse are fashion, luxury, home appliances and automobiles.
