Virtual reality marketing is the next evolution of experiential marketing. Innovative brands are already seizing on its potential, and it’s increasingly important to have a presence in this rapidly growing space. The VR market was estimated at $59.96 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at an annual compound rate of 27.5% from 2023 to 2030 (source). There’s a good chance your customer base is already there. And with, you’ll be there, too. 

Let’s dig into a few details:

The virtual reality marketing landscape today

An estimated 53 million US adults own a VR system (source), and 48% of US consumers have had at least one VR experience (source). The VR market is only growing, and customers are actively seeking out meaningful experiences in the virtual realm. 

Brands that establish a presence in this space early can make a big splash—both through in-channel engagement and by using the data they collect to drive marketing strategies, refine content personalization, and make data-driven marketing decisions. 

While virtual reality marketing holds tremendous promise, implementing VR in marketing strategies requires a different approach than any other channel. You must understand how the technology works and how people use it. Unlike what you may see in sci-fi films like Cyberpunk or Ready Player One, where pop-up ads are on every surface of a VR space, current virtual reality marketing is all about seamless experiences. Brands that use VR marketing effectively create immersive experiences that leverage the unique capabilities of VR headsets. And to do that, you need real-time data about your VR audience.

Why we’re connecting with Apple Vision Pro 

The release of Apple Vision Pro heralds a significant expansion of the VR landscape. Over 200,000 units were sold in the first 10 days of pre-orders, and analysts expect more than a million people to strap on the headsets in 2024 (source). Our customers are eager to leverage the opportunity for Apple Vision Pro marketing, and we’re keeping up with their needs to ensure our platform supports their innovations.

When your VR data isn’t integrated into the rest of your customer data, you can’t clearly see what people are doing, personalize their messaging, or respond to their actions in real time. All your other marketing is orchestrated in one place—integrated and powerful—while your VR marketing campaigns and data are siloed.
