How to sell an AR project to a client
Let’s imagine this: You meet a potential client and you suggest to use Augmented Reality for a project. Everybody in the meeting gets excited about using Augmented Reality but then when the time comes to make a decision, they tell you this: “It’s fascinating but for the time being we are not going to use AR”.
Does this sound familiar to you? Then this article might be right for you. We are going to take a look at how to sell AR to your clients – now, not in the future.
Address the pain points of your client
When you want to sell Augmented Reality solutions, it is important that the client fully understands what AR exactly is and how it can become one of the most important tools at their disposal, especially when it comes to selling their products. In other words, since this a new technology, it is your job to educate the client.
Let’s take a closer look at how AR can address the pain points of your clients.
Is it difficult to explain your product in 2D?
Does your client have products that are expensive, bulky or difficult to understand? This can entail that customers are hesitant about buying this kind of product. Help them to visualize a product to positively influence their decision.
Your customers can’t be reached with normal marketing?
AR is disruptive, which means the sensation people get from interacting with AR content, is much more intense than other forms of marketing like print advertisements or online ads. If your client needs to discover new marketing channels, AR might be the answer.
Does your online business struggle to engage with customers?
If your client works in e-commerce and doesn’t have a physical shop where potential buyers can go and have a real look at their products they might be missing out on an important part of the shopping experience. Many people want to be able to see and feel the products for themselves before buying them. AR can provide this missing try-before-you-buy experience.
Other pain points
Make sure you understand your client’s needs and struggles. This will help you to come up with other suggestions where AR can be of real help to your clients.
