Raise your (VR) Glasses – Heineken launches in de metaverse
Launching our new beer, Heineken® Silver, marked a very special occasion for the HEINEKEN company. When we agreed to launch, we also agreed to set ourselves a big, audacious goal and make it the biggest beer launch in Europe, ever. Although launching in the metaverse was not a goal in itself, it helped us reach new territories and consumers and most importantly, it helped us land our campaign idea in a fresh way. How did we approach it? What did we learn? Otto Esser, Marketing Manager Heineken will share his experience.
Metaverse: The Next Grand Adventure For Advertisers
Social connection is everything, and nowhere is the advancement in human connection clearer than in the Metaverse. Games are a natural entry point to the Metaverse, with enormous titles like Roblox and Fortnite embracing a gaming community of millions with huge virtual worlds to enjoy. Players, and now advertisers, have realized the benefits of living in the Metaverse, with experiences from concerts and festivals to connecting with their favorite brands and celebrities all made possible within this virtual world.
Such sandbox platforms like Roblox allow players more freedom to let their imagination and creativity run wild, while providing an exciting platform to socialize, meet new friends, celebrate holidays, and interact in the Metaverse – far more so than more traditional advertising channels. With the age of user-generated content set to influence the future of the Metaverse, this virtual space will constantly evolve and adapt to new trends. What better opportunity is there for brands to reach and benefit from a more switched-on, lean-forward audience?

#Nobettercombo! From eating Lay’s crisps to AR & NFT’s
How does a FMCG brand like Lay’s embrace rapidly changing digital innovation around us? In 2021 the Iconic Restaurant Flavour crisps were launched and the Benelux could vote for their favourite flavour combination. Consumers were so excited, that we went next level, introducing the Lay’s Crispy Puffer Jacket! But how was AR & NFT integrated into this campaign? What are our learnings, tips & tricks for a brand to enter the Metaverse?
Welcome to the Metaverse
The current Metaverse is presented as a massive multiplayer online VR universe, which means that user data could from now on be gathered from user behavior in Virtual Reality. I imagine that for data driven marketing, these possibilities seem extremely exciting. However, my aim for this meeting is to chat about ethical challenges this may pose.
VR technology brought a new way for the individual to be immersed in a digital world. While a user behind a screen is constantly reminded of the real world, as it exists to the right, left, above and behind the screen, the user in VR is deprived of these reminders. In VR, only VR exists, meaning that all emotion, all perception and all excitement is experienced in the most direct way cyberspace has ever been able to offer. Is it ethical for a marketeer to try to make maximal use of this notion? Or should you try to set some boundaries beforehand?
New generations of VR headsets may, for instance, incorporate options to gather data on pupil movement and dilation. Is it ethical to collect this data, when a consumer is visiting an online store? Should consumers always have the option to turn off this modus?
Oculus Quest II headsets show you your physical environment, to allow you to set a physical boundary. This information can, of course, be stored as well. Do we really want Meta to have this information about our private spaces, that can even be connected to our home address?
