How Consumers Think Brands & Retailers Can Use Virtual Reality For Marketing

There is a high degree of interest by consumers in Virtual Reality (VR). In a survey of more than 800 adults aged 18-54, a substantial amount believed virtual reality can be used effectively to demo products.

Forty (40%) percent of respondents said they would be interested in seeing brands and advertisers use virtual reality to demo products before purchase.

More than one-third said they would be interested in how-to and DIY instructions from brands using virtual reality.

Twenty-five (25%) percent showed interest in new shopping experiences, immersive VR experiences instead of ads and rewards for engaging with VR content.

The report from YuMe suggests consumer receptiveness to these types of VR applications could increase substantially once they’ve tried them. Separately, the study found that respondents who had experienced immersive technologies were more likely to view brands’ use of them positively than the average respondent.

For example, among those who had tried any type of virtual reality (including augmented reality and/or 360 degree video), 60% said that brands’ use of VR creates a positive view of them. That compares with 43% of the entire sample who felt that way.

The likelihood of paying more attention when video is 360 degrees and the increased likelihood of engaging with an ad if it was in 360-degree video, were positive finds.

Those results bring to mind earlier research from Nielsen in which about half of consumers found VR more likable once they had tried it.

Overall, 86% of respondents reported having heard of at least one of the immersive technologies listed (virtual reality, augmented reality and 360 video), with 29% having tried one. Previous research from Frank N. Magid Associates indicates that more than 4 in 10 consumers aged 8-64 are interested in virtual reality, while a recent study from IAB suggests that 1 in 10 adults owns a VR headset.

As an engagement tool, virtual reality would appear to be a natural step for brands and retailers to use. And not that it is a hot topic, sooner would be better than later. Those who jump into this technology first will claim the rewards of a more satisfied customer base. And, it all go a long way in creating a positive view of their products and/or services.
