Showrooms in the Metaverse: an Earth of opportunities



The Metaverse is an online platform where people can engage in virtual communities and make purchases of virtual goods. With a series of several technological innovations working together, the metaverse could enable brands to provide consumers with an unparalleled online shopping experience. Technologies such as NFT, augmented and virtual reality, and online gaming provide unique opportunities for your brand to reach new customers in new ways.



What are virtual showrooms?


Virtual showrooms are a virtual reality platform that aims to make virtual reality accessible to everyone by giving users the option of purchasing and owning 3D-printed products in the real world; are interactive environments and a great way for brands to target new audiences. They give consumers a chance to view the products they want to buy and interact with brands that are in the metaverse. So consumers can to go online and find exactly what they are looking for. This, however, comes at a price. Brands have to pay for the virtual reality experience as well as the hardware and software needed to run it. However, there is another way that companies can use Virtual Reality (VR) and 3D printed models — with the help of Metaverse.

Ideally, using this platform will also bring about positive social change because it will offer people tools that allow them to create their own 3D printed objects without being limited by where or how they can purchase them.


This project has already been successful in China thanks to Metaverse launching its first product — Shenzhen VR Store — earlier this year which offers users a chance of purchasing printed goods such as furniture and appliances from China's biggest online retailer Taobao over the internet. In China, 3D printing is not just limited to manufacturing but also includes product design (such as creating your own kitchen design), medical equipment (such as creating prosthetic limbs) and even toys (like making your own toy car).



The benefits of using virtual showrooms


Virtual showrooms enable companies to engage with their audiences across multiple channels. This is done by linking a virtual showroom to various social media networks. Companies use virtual showroom platforms as a way to attract customers through their websites or through mobile apps, and also enable them to establish long-term relationships with their audiences by offering them access to select product collections and exclusive offers for those who choose to engage with them on their channels.

Virtual showrooms allow brands to engage with potential customers in a way that is completely different from traditional methods of engaging with customers. A virtual-to-virtual relationship can also be established between brands and their audiences across different platforms and this generally leads to positive outcomes for both parties involved.


There are several advantages that come with using virtual showrooms, such as:


1) Virtual showroom becomes more personalized and less impersonal. A company can tailor their products based on the customer’s preferences without having to personally go visit them in person.

2) Virtual showroom allows a company to create unique content specifically tailored for each customer, which helps them be more memorable and sell better than typical advertising.

3) Virtual showrooms have the ability to reach customers who live far away from their headquarters or may not be able to attend a traditional sales event. This saves time on travel costs since no physical trips are made, thus minimizing costs and eliminating waste of time. This also allows companies to reach customers who may not be able to attend an event or may not have the ability or desire to go there because of physical limitations (e.g., those who can’t drive).

4) Virtual showroom allows for a company’s products/services to be given out as incentives (e.g., coupons). This eliminates the need of sales people showing up at an event just so they can hand out coupons while there is still time left before closing hours (e.g., events where you will only be given space after you walk through security measures).

5) Virtual shows allow companies who operate in the Metaverse to reach new audiences without having to change their current marketing strategies, because their current marketing strategies can now be adapted into virtual shows instead of having them completely re-written, thus avoiding possible risks related to changing established marketing strategies during transitions between online & offline platforms (e.g., deciding what type of content is appropriate for each platform.)



Marketing in the Metaverse


In order to make your virtual showroom successful, you need to target intimate audiences. Virtual Showrooms are most effective when they are used in conjunction with other marketing campaigns. A number of companies have found that virtual showrooms can be differentiated from other marketing campaigns by their unique and unique audience needs. The biggest potential of virtual showrooms is their ability to reach customers who have no physical location, but their minds could be anywhere. For example, a typical brick and mortar store might only attract consumers who live within the city limits of the city where it is located. This is an address-based audience; very few people living beyond a certain distance from the store would even notice it.


You’d be surprised how many people live outside the city limits, but still don’t mind going in for a cup of coffee or dinner at that particular place because they know it’s nearby and convenient. As long as the store has good coffee or food they won’t mind driving there and paying for it themselves; however, if they live far away from the store than they will most likely enjoy eating at home instead. This is a non-address-based audience; there is no place near them that will give them that same feeling as if they were sitting down in front of their favorite coffee shop or restaurant. This is an affinity-based audience; however, virtual showrooms can help you reach this audience more effectively than traditional marketing tools such as TV commercials or billboards since you can rather easily target these audiences with online advertising and by making discounts available on goods sold through virtual showrooms through special offers like coupons and deals offered on products sold through online shopping sites like Amazon and eBay .



Huge possibilities


The Metaverse has been around for five years, but there are only 5 million people who use it. Products that have been featured in the Metaverse include movies, music, games and apps.

In order to help grow the industry through Virtual Reality (VR) technology, Hollywood studio Sony Pictures started building a virtual showroom environment in the Metaverse so that filmmakers could easily create shows based on their existing franchises. The idea was to introduce a new audience to these characters by creating a new format with VR technology that couldn’t be duplicated in any other medium. As a result, Sony has succeeded in attracting its first monthly payment users since it launched its VR experience last year – more than 80 percent of them come from outside the US and more than 20 percent are women under 35 years old.


Virtual showroom is a great way to get your company’s message in front of a new group of people. It’s also a great way to grow your brand, since it can help you expand all of the ways that you can reach people. But there are also many businesses that have turned to virtual showrooms as a marketing tool for their company. This helps them target new audiences and take advantage of the opportunities that virtual reality has opened up for them.
