In such a saturated industry, it’s quite easy to fall into the old school web marketing strategy that everyone else is doing. How about after your consumers put a VR headset, they would be able to experience the new car model in their own driveway or garage. App developers can create an AR/VR world that can be reachable by anyone in their own environment while being able to take it apart and learn information while moving things around with their own hands. In this way, consumers would have a full on exciting time while experiencing the very car you are selling, in the comfort of their own homes.

For furniture consumers it can be hard to imagine what a sofa would look like in their living room, while shopping in store, instead, you can bring your furniture digitally to your customers’ homes, which can ultimately make you a leader in your industry.
