Augmented reality ads now don Pizza Hut delivery boxes

The marketing effort is a part of a partnership between the restaurant and Xbox One.

The massive international restaurant chain, Pizza Hut, has partnered with Xbox One to provide customers with exclusive content in the form of augmented reality ads that play on a smartphone or tablet that is aimed at one of the specially made interactive delivery boxes.

This campaign has been launched in the United Kingdom and is available on specially marked boxes.

These augmented reality ads are for the Forza Motorsport 5 game that was recently released. The AR content can be viewed using the free Blippar app and allows people who order the pizzas to be able to view this unique video and its associated features. This is not the first time that the pizza chain has taken part in this type of advertising.

The current augmented reality ads are being compared to some from the past, such as the one for Halo 4.

In that promotion, there were 500,000 limited edition boxes that featured the specially printed cover with the image of the game that would come to life when viewed through a smartphone or tablet. Customers animated the image through the use of the Blippar app and were able to interact with it in order to be able to enter into a sweepstakes as well as to view trailers for the game.

Blippar has taken part in a broad range of different AR mobile marketing campaigns with large brands, such as Pepsi and even one of the main competitors of Pizza Hut, Dominos Pizza. This is the first time that they have worked on a campaign for augmented reality ads for Pizza Hut UK. The restaurant has also worked AR into other efforts to engage with customers, only in its Middle East operations, where it experienced very positive outcomes. This technology aligns well with advertising for a broad range of brands and their products and services, giving the surfaces of the delivery boxes an entirely new purpose.

Mobile marketing is using augmented reality to make a bigger bang

This technology helps to take ads to a whole new level to boost interest and engagement from consumers.

It wasn’t that long ago that augmented reality technology was considered to be nothing more than a mobile marketing gimmick that would come and go within a very short period of time.

However, augmented reality is starting to prove that it is much more than a passing fad.

Mobile marketing has been taking a dramatic leap toward the use of technology and augmented reality has become a central component of that. It has proven itself to be engaging and functional and is continuing to play an ever increasing role in a number of different advertising and promotional campaigns. It has managed to hold its own as marketers seek out more complexity in their smartphone and tablet campaigns, as the penetration of these more high tech devices continues.

As advanced technology plays a more important role in mobile marketing, so will A.R.

Mobile marketing to make bigger bang with AR technologyIt had a bit of a confusing start, particularly as mobile marketing companies attempted to explain what, precisely, augmented reality is, to their customers and to consumers, as well. However, the tremendous potential for interactivity that the technology has shown to have has brought it to life. Consumers are engaged, and the experience of the campaigns has been considerably broadened through its use.

According to Snipp Interactive’s John D. Fauller, “Augmented reality is still very much in the experimental bucket for most brands, and most of the implementations so far are still gimmicky.” He added that “We’re starting to see more focused brand building campaigns using AR and eventually will start seeing truly utility applications using AR – that’s when you know it’s officially here to stay.”

That said, there are still some companies that continue their reliance on the gimmicky side of augmented reality for their mobile marketing campaigns. This is because they are new to the technology and they have not built up their repertoires in terms of how it can be used to its greatest potential. That will come with time as they gain a better understanding of what it is and how their customers can use it.
