How AR Gives Ads New Purpose

May 13, 2021

Ahead of joining Brand Innovators panel discussion on Collaborative Advertising: How AR Gives Ads New Purpose, last week LoopMe surveyed over 2,300 U.S. consumers and asked about the value of interactive, immersive advertising experience.

Nearly 20% of consumers say they’re more likely to pay attention to interactive ads with 2/3’s of them remember seeing ads while playing games on their mobile devices. So awareness of ads are high but the majority of consumers have not engaged with an AR ad — not surprising since we don’t see many brands really tapping into this yet.

Interestingly though, a quarter of consumers would have a better attitude of ads if they were more engaging and almost 40% of consumers may find it useful to use a virtual first look for products.

This is a huge opportunity for brands to reach consumers in a more meaningful memorable way.
