Shopping in 3D Worlds: Why Settle for the Usual When You Can Have the Unique From the Sofa to a Luxury Shopping Paradise: Greater reach and lower costs with 3D shopping in the Metaverse. Why rely on boring online shops when your customers can explore your store in 3D worlds? Welcome to the Metaverse, where shopping in 3D worlds is not only fun but also an immersive experience. All of this directly from your browser. Innovative Shopping Experiences in 3D Worlds 3D shopping in web-based 3D worlds offers store owners, online shop operators, and retailers an innovative, cost-efficient alternative to traditional web shops, combining online convenience with a luxurious and social shopping experience. Yesterday’s Boring Stuff: Static Websites and Endless Scrolling Let’s be honest: who still enjoys dull product lists and endless scrolling through static websites? 3D shopping in the Metaverse offers a welcome change. Imagine your customers entering a virtual product palace – stunning store architecture typically found in the world’s most exclusive locations. And all this from the comfort of their sofa, without bulky VR headsets. Shopping in 3D Worlds: Home Alone Yet Together Shopping with friends from a laptop – even if they are on the other side of the world. The experience of exploring virtual aisles, viewing products, and discussing them adds a social and interactive dimension that traditional online shops can’t match. Say Goodbye to Exorbitant Rent Costs Why struggle with the high rental and operational costs of physical stores when a one-time investment in a stunning 3D environment can suffice? This smart investment offers long-term savings and provides your customers with an unforgettable shopping experience that keeps them coming back for more. AI Avatars: The Tireless Sales Assistants Imagine your customers always having access to a personal sales assistant that never gets tired. AI avatars are available to online shoppers 24/7, answering questions about products and providing personalised recommendations. These virtual assistants are a significant advancement over traditional chatbots. Thanks to advanced AI technologies like ChatGPT, shopping becomes more efficient, personal, and enjoyable – just like having an expert salesperson always available. The Benefits of Shopping in 3D Worlds at a Glance: Immersive Experience: Shoppers can enjoy realistic and interactive environments. Social Shopping: Customers can shop and interact with friends. Luxury and Comfort: High-quality virtual store architecture without the high rental costs for store owners. Tireless Sales Assistants: AI avatars provide continuous support and personalised recommendations for shoppers. Cost Savings: Store owners save on rental and personnel costs. Environmentally Friendly: Lower energy consumption, no deforestation, and reduced CO2 emissions benefit everyone. Current Examples: Major Brands Embracing the Metaverse Walmart: Walmart Realm offers a Disney-like shopping experience with avatars and funky music. Shoppers can explore three distinct worlds – home, beauty, and fashion – and purchase selected products. However, it feels more like a computer game and is less practical due to the limited product selection. Gucci: Gucci has launched a virtual “Gucci Garden” on Roblox, where customers can purchase exclusive digital accessories. Balenciaga: This fashion brand has developed its own game, “Afterworld: The Age of Tomorrow,” providing a futuristic shopping experience. Shopping has never been so adventurous! Samsung: On Decentraland, Samsung has created a virtual replica of its New York flagship store, allowing customers to experience products and participate in exclusive events – all without the need for a plane ticket to NYC. Many top fashion brands are already experimenting in the Metaverse, and their innovative approaches are truly captivating. From stunning virtual fashion shows to exclusive digital collections, the possibilities are endless. Check out our list of the top 11 fashion brands in the Metaverse to discover how these brands are transforming the shopping experience and what unique offers they bring to the table.

Saving on Business Travel: Metaverse vs. Zoom

Saving on Business Travel: Metaverse vs. Zoom Business travel costs are soaring in a post-pandemic world, with companies facing a crisis of rising expenses. According to the Handelsblatt, corporate travel expenses for German companies have surged by 19% from 2019 to 2023, far outpacing general inflation rates. This rapid increase is challenging companies struggling to regain stability in an already volatile economic landscape. Rising Costs and Company Responses The cost hikes are not uniform. While travel within Europe has increased by a modest 6%, trips to key non-European destinations, like North America, have jumped by a third since 2019. A North American business trip now costs over 1700 euros, a nearly 50% increase. Many companies are responding by freezing travel budgets at 2019 levels or imposing outright travel bans. This trend, along with the pandemic’s impact, has led to a shift toward virtual meetings. Moreover, according to the stats sourced from the article “European Business Travel Spending is Forecast to Reach 450 Billion USD by 2027” and our current pricing, €1,000 spent on one business trip for one person is approximately equivalent to the year-long costs of providing access to engaging, interactive live meetings for up to four employees on Unyted’s virtual meeting platform. Travel expenses can consume up to 10% of a company’s revenue, largely due to the 42% of employees who need to visit other offices. How about shifting many of these meetings online? Unyted can convert the expense of an average business trip into a full year of engaging, interactive live meetings for 1-4 employees by providing access to its virtual meeting spaces. Let’s see how. Zoom vs. the Metaverse While platforms like Zoom became essential for remote communication during the pandemic, they lack the immersive experience of in-person interactions. This is where the Metaverse comes in. Unlike Zoom’s 2D interface, the Metaverse provides a 3D virtual reality environment, allowing users to interact through avatars in simulated spaces. This offers a more lifelike meeting experience and could be a game-changer for businesses seeking to maintain human connections while controlling costs. In the Metaverse, business interactions can feel more like in-person meetings. Avatars allow users to engage in a range of interactive activities, from shaking hands to collaborating on projects. This additional level of interactivity could make it a superior alternative for building business relationships and fostering collaboration. The Metaverse can help companies save on business travel expenses by offering a virtual alternative to physical travel, reducing costs associated with transportation and accommodation. This approach also contributes to sustainability by lowering the need for long-haul travel, thus reducing carbon emissions. Virtual meetings are also more accessible to a broader audience, promoting inclusivity. Given the complexities surrounding business travel, companies must decide whether to continue cutting back on travel or embrace virtual communication through platforms like the Metaverse. It has the potential to offer a cost-effective, immersive alternative to traditional business travel and video platforms, redefining the business travel and remote work landscapes. The decisions companies make now will shape the future of business interactions for years to come.
