From back-to-school, to Labor Day, Halloween, or Black Friday—we’re sure you have a marketing campaign in the works to take advantage of the annual rise in online shopping. In fact, EMarketer is forecasting that sales through online platforms around the 2021 holiday season will rise by 11.3% which will result in a total value of $206.88 billion.

Your brand’s digital marketing strategy is critical to being able to stand out in all the noise, engage consumers, and drive sales during this peak shopping season. Your social strategy alone will include in-feed posts, stories, reels, paid campaigns, influencer takeovers, and more. 

To make the most of your digital campaigns, improving the customer experience and increasing engagement will make your brand win this holiday season. Social AR transforms your 2D social posts into live experiences—boosting the most impactful metric to your sales funnel: consumer engagement.
