Create business impact with 3D – five solid takeaways for Brands

The internet is becoming more three-dimensional by the second, and it’s no wonder why XR is one of the fastest-growing trends in e-commerce. In this article, we provide you with 5 solid tips on how the versatility of 3D can make a significant impact on your business and foster a sustainable e-commerce environment, reducing returns while increasing revenue and margins.

Big tech players such as Meta, Google, Snap, and Apple are at the forefront of technology and driving immersive experiences. But the key question you should ask yourself isn’t whether you can keep up with the big money building infrastructure, rather: where do you position your brand in the backwaters of this development? The tips below might help you answer that question.

Tip 1: Turn your shoes into 3D models
Contrary to what you might think, 3D and AR technology is readily available for your e-commerce today. We’re not only referring to the 3D production itself but also the final link, which many suppliers struggle with – distribution. We work end-to-end. From swiftly turning your shoe collection into 3D, adding distribution and 3D experiences. In fact, our tech power global product launches.

Tip 2: The 3D viewer is a great start

It’s easy to overdo or overthink activities and initiatives you need or want to do, when you have your 3D experience in place. It’s completely natural and we totally get it – it looks awesome – and we won’t stop you. Still, our experience tells us that starting simple with a 360 viewer and setting up A/B tests is a good start. A test also helps you understand how 3D technology creates business impact.

In fact, product images are automatically generated and included in the delivery when we turn your shoe into 3D. Our goal isn’t to take jobs from hardworking product photographers, but let’s face it, this is a game-changer that saves you a significant amount of money and time!

With your 3D assets in place you can go 3D first, turning your physical store inside out and display your products with engaging features such as Virtual Try On and AR placement. Promote products on Snapchat and allow customers to try-and-buy using Virtual Try On, or use these features on your e-commerce platform, in your email marketing, or any other platform you can come up with.
