Let’s Get Physical … and Digital
Leading consumer brands and retailers are looking to Google Cloud Marketplace and its comprehensive suite of solutions now including the Absolute Labs Wallet Relationship Management platform, to help them capture the transformative potential of Web3.
From reaching a new generation of customers, to capturing the considerable buying power of consumers with crypto wallets, to creating new ways to reward loyalty, it’s truly a game-changing time. The strategy of “phygitals,” in particular, has captured the imagination of leading luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and retailers such as Nordstrom.
A phygital combines elements of both the physical and digital worlds by linking experiences and products that seamlessly integrate physical and digital components. This can take many forms:
- Purchasing a physical product which also unlocks a digital ID or collectible … or vice-versa.
- Embedding an RFID or NFC (near field communication) device in apparel that links to a Web3 wallet and/or NFT that can be used to identify consumers for exclusive shopping experiences and offers
- Link seller to consumer for post-purchase marketing and loyalty-building
- Gamified experiences that capture consumer imaginations, extend their brand engagement, and add a new layer of interest and excitement in their purchases
- In assessing a consumer brand or retailer’s total addressable market with its Wallet Tracker – a simple pixel (SDK) that gets installed on a website or app to identify who among its visitors/users have a Web3 wallet
- In gaining essential insights into the profiles and preferences of its customers who have an affinity for Web3
- In creating actionable segments for targeting strategies and campaigns
- In executing cross-channel campaigns – including retail activation, minting of NFTs, wallet messaging, and more.
