The advancement of Web 3.0 brings about modern technologies such as virtual and augmented reality that will transform customers’ shopping experiences. So, how can you leverage these technologies to stay ahead of eCommerce trends?

According to John Ghiorso, one impending technology that has functional implications for retailers is augmented reality (AR) glasses. This device would provide consumers with 3D renderings of an item to influence their purchasing decisions. By developing a strategy that combines physical and digital stores for experiential involvement, brands can gather practical insights and data on each aspect of the customer journey.

In today’s episode of The Digital Deep Dive, Aaron Conant talks with John Ghiorso of Media.Monks and Orca Pacific about how brands can prepare for the future of eCommerce. John discusses Web 3.0’s technologies and their impact on consumer purchasing, how retailers can leverage AR to improve the customer experience, and the effects of technological changes on consumers and brands.
