The Ultimate way to end Adblock

augmania,ar,blog,ad-block

 

Remember when Facebook began its ad inventory and everybody, every business leveraged it for their campaigns? Not to mention the giant Google and its record-beating advertising shares. These companies have gained a huge amount of money from it to until it became a primary revenue source.

 

 

 

 

 

The ad revenue witnessed an even bigger growth when consumers switched PCs to smartphones for surfing the Internet. Since then, mobile ad sales have grown tremendously giving the opportunity to widen the ad market.

 

 

 

 

 

Unfortunately, things are going down the hill nowadays. Studies have revealed that Facebook and Google are having too many ad worries!  Advertising, in general, is becoming a headache. People increasingly find it ANNOYING to the point where an ad-nausea became immersive and ad blocking became a necessity for the majority of internet users.

 

 

 

 

 

The problem is while mobile ad sales are growing, their share of the total revenues has been relatively flat. And there is no true call of action to defeat it.

1: Because there is no new ad inventory since phone use has somehow gotten stable and the platforms are already ad inflated.

2: Because as seen the content is bothersome.

Not to cut the hopes though, there actually is a solution for this: By using the right technology it is possible to boost ad revenues.

How?

The main issue is people’s reaction to ads, right? The more they Adblock the more companies are damaged. So it is only a matter of reversing the situation. What if we can change people’s reactions towards ads? What if we get rid of ad-nausea and flip it to ad-appeal. There won’t be any new ad inventory released anytime soon so the only way to change the facts is by optimizing the existing inventories and basically make people like ads!

 

No way you might think!

Yes way, the right technology does exist for it and it is called Augmented Reality (AR).

Why AR?

You can say AR and spark a non-ending conversation about its emergence and the way it is reshaping our lives!  Read 5 ways AR reshapes our lives.

But AR’s contributions to marketing and advertising are an eye awakening to the fact that it is what we need to be armed with if we want to combat the consistent stubborn war against ads which I happen to fully excuse. Ads can show lousy content, no creativity, and sickeningly repetitive import. AR is a way to fix that!  Check our article: make your ads stand out if you want to discover how.

Augmented Reality pressures you into unleashing your creativity and portrays it in a very high-quality disruptive technology.

Ads with AR are more friendly thus tend to appeal more to people and resist rejection the most.

Facebook has recently taken a step closer towards AR as it released its new augmented platform at F8 and made it mainstream for its acquisitions as well. This is where you can sense the change. Imagine later Facebook’s wall a 3D space and everyone stroll down a virtual media with augmented ads that nobody ever minds. At least that is how I envision the near future. And I say near because of the emergence of AR authoring and publishing tools such as Augmania: an AR content-based digital marketing platform to create compelling campaigns and embed them on all social media.

Everyone is expecting Facebook and Google to deliver stellar ad growth and breaking into AR is an opportunity to be ceased for them to do so.

AR the new language!

augmania,ar,blog

Do you sometimes get the feeling while sharing a Facebook post or a tweet that you are blocked? as if you can’t speak your mind?  As if your language is failing you to deliver the message you want or maybe the image you wish to portray?!

This might be annoying and can get you renouncing on a great deal of social media engagement. But for digital marketers, when captions are not catchy enough it becomes frustrating and could cause quite the loss.

Digital Marketers’ utmost challenge is to communicate their brand image in the most compelling way. They can’t afford to be short on language especially not when competition over content is at its highest.

See: Your way to brand legacy

Not to worry though! If you are a digital marketer and feel exposed to this burden then meet Augmented Reality (AR): The new language that will never fail you to express yourself.

AR is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on your view of the real world and provides you with a composite view.  But what makes it a language is its capability of storytelling and its interactive appeal that tends to get its users hooked from the first try.

How?

here are two features:

1/Storytelling

As mentioned, Augmented Reality blends in the digital world with the real one. It recognizes images and adds on augmented filters to bring them to life. AR enhances everything: videos with 3D visuals give you the feeling that you are physically present in them. With AR you can gamify almost anything: take a picture of a real person and make them interact with an avatar etc, all the while making it seem realistic.

With such high-quality viewer, your only challenge to create high-quality content is your imagination.

Marketers who believe that marketing is about storytelling need to take advantage of AR technology and use it to the utmost.

An example for storytelling created featuring  AR would be Coca-Cola and WWF campaign “Arctic Home” to raise awareness of the danger surrounding polar bears due to climate change. The campaign displayed the Arctic environment to people and showed the bears standing on ice and swimming across the ocean. No words were needed to extract empathy from people, no verbal language was used to make the attendees share the perception of the campaign. AR only worked its magic to sensitize people and make them adhere. How?  It is because AR exploits our senses and gets us engaged to what is being displayed by speaking both to our minds and emotions.

 

2/Interactive

What distinguishes AR is also the fact that it is extremely interactive.

While watching an AR campaign you don’t just stand still, you add and alter everything within it. You can touch an image and information will display. You can use filters and create new characters, you can add any visual and give it a motion. So not only you are exposed to content but you are able to edit it as much as you can in the most creative way.

You’ll be basically creating visuals and animating them in different ways. Everyone can react and understand this type of content. We see this usually with retail ads that feature AR, where people touch-scan products and customize them for example.

Every day a new innovation rises but up to now, AR has proven itself to be among the most effective tools of communication. It engages people within seconds with visuals and sound. It is applicable in almost every field: business, medicine, education etc.
