What is a Virtual Showroom?
A virtual showroom is a 360-degrees immersive experience that offers 3D product displays and rich branded spaces. In essence, a virtual showroom is a digitally simulated version of a physical showroom. It includes product displays, details and other interactive touch points.
The experiential nature of virtual centres makes them popular. Virtual centres drive conversions from customers who prefer the comfort of their space and yet want to explore.
Who is this for?
A virtual showroom can enhance the experience of your customers in potentially any line of business. In B2C, use cases span from apparel to jewellery, accessories, clothing, electronics, home furnishings and automobiles.
While in the B2B sector, a virtual showroom can display engineering products, machinery of any scale, architectural products, software & IT solutions, etc.
Any business that offers products can leverage virtual showrooms as a modernized way of connecting with their buyers.
THE POSSIBILITIES FOR YOUR CUSTOMERS IN A VIRTUAL SHOWROOM
A virtual showroom’s experience matches none other. A customer can easily navigate the entire experience and use touchpoints to interact with your reps. Customers can even engage in a negotiation in the moment.
The experience in a virtual showroom simulates and even exceeds that which you can offer in person. A virtual showroom is accessible to the customer through a digital device of any size. That makes it convenient for the potential buyer to browse through your entire product catalog. Interested buyers can even make purchasing decisions from the comfort of their home.
Navigate the experience at ease
A virtual showroom experience differs from a video experience of your showroom. The customer enjoys navigation control so that they can choose to skip over certain products and look closely at others.
With this customer-centricity, a virtual showroom becomes an important marketing and sales asset for any organization.
Take a close look
Customers can view products through 360-degree imagery and a life-like experience. But they can also leverage the augmented reality-powered ‘Try-on’ feature to, well, try on products. This is especially lucrative in industries such as jewellery, accessories and clothing.
There is little that can’t be simulated in a virtual showroom experience. Since customers can immerse themselves in the shopping environment and make informed decisions, a virtual showroom increases conversions.
Chat with a rep in real-time
Buyers often need assistance while shopping. And that’s what a virtual showroom simulates with the real-time chat option. Customers can raise questions, negotiate, or interact with your representatives with a single touch.
Real-time chat features are also available in messaging apps such as WhatsApp. That ensures that the customer stays in their comfort, both physically and digitally.
Augment the experience (with a presentation, booklet, pamphlet, PDF)
A virtual showroom experience can be augmented with assets such as a video presentation, booklet or PDF. These assets can explain complex machinery parts or workings of a complex product.
What more your customers might need to see before purchasing? Make that information available in a preferred format, further easing the buying process.
