Why it matters
With 75% of all people using social communication apps expected to be frequent users by 2025, a new study from the Advertising Research Foundation says it’s increasingly important that brands understand each distinct channel and their usage to best craft relevant messages for different audiences.
- Of those saying they will use AR/VR/Metaverse in the next 12 months, 77% were marketers and 59% were agencies, demonstrating positive attitudes towards these channels.
- Audience engagement (41%), access to younger audiences (38%) and ability to showcase products (35%), were the top three benefits of AR/VR/Metaverse usage.
- Despite the positive attitudes, proof of performance, duplicative reach and lack of knowledge are major concerns for advertisers and marketers in this space; however this still presents an opportunity for education, with 49% of current users saying they would prefer articles from trade publications featuring subject matter experts.
