Innovative Metaverse Branding Opportunities for Marketers
October 17, 2022
It’s been quite some time since metaverse has been the buzzword. And for all the metaversians, here’s some good news! Metaverse is going to be the future of marketing in the coming years.
For those who don’t know much about the metaverse, it is a virtual space where people can interact with each other in their avatars, and buy and even sell things. In this way, the metaverse brings new opportunities for marketers in all sectors. And the continuous rise in the usage of AR and VR also gives us high hopes for marketing in this space.
Marketing in Metaverse
Metaverse is for sure the next big thing in marketing. And brands that utilize the potential of metaverse in its earlier stages will be the ones seeing the most return. We can redefine the whole marketing process by leveraging this new landscape! Let’s see the different ways in which metaverse can be implemented in marketing.
1. Creating Branded Characters
In the metaverse, you can create digital avatars, step into the virtual world, and interact with others and various digital products of brands. And many brands now create avatars and experiences in line with their audience to provide them with immersive experiences. Brands like Gucci sell digital versions of their luxury clothing in the metaverse which may seem like a bizarre idea for some, especially when it cannot be touched. But the company’s main focus was to target the Gen Z audience and drive revenue; the important thing is that they succeeded.
2. Gaming Experience
Gaming in the metaverse is another marketing strategy taken by brands. By introducing metaverse games into the marketing strategy brand were able to create awareness of their products in a fun and engaging way. Also, audiences get the chance to experience what you can offer and the value they get through an immersive virtual experience.
3. Virtual Live Events
Metaverse opens new ways of connectivity for humans through live events. Performances, tournaments, or even new product launches can be done virtually through metaverse, known as MILE or Massive Interactive Live Events.
