Red Bull Augmented Reality Gaming App Helps Increase Sales
This campaign is well worth sharing because I think it brings together a great mix of technology and gaming with the ultimate aim of increasing sales for Red Bull. As you’ll see from the couple of videos below you have to scan a minimum of 12 cans in to the app and it then builds your own track based on the exact shape that you have designed. The technology here is seriously impressive but what I find more impressive from a marketing perspective is that even though the app is free you need buy physical cans of Red Bull which means that it actually helps increase sales. The demo of the app shows how it uses augmented reality to create your own racing track that is created within seconds for you to race including all your own curves etc…
This app is going to appeal to serious gamers as well because it means that you can create your own tracks and upload them online for others to have a go at as well. You can also become one of the top racers across the planet by competing against others on their site here.
Red Bull are the masters at online branding and this is yet another examples of them flexing their marketing ability. I love the branded experience that this creates but too many companies build apps just for the sake of it whereas this could actually help sales in a pretty major way which is the ultimate aim of all marketing.
