The Metaverse Matrix and choosing the right one for your brand

If you’ve stuck around with us since a while you’ve probably read our Moonbox Talks Meta series of blogs. If you haven’t, we recommend reading all about what the metaverse is, what its ecosystem is all about, and which global brands have joined the league so far. 

In today’s blog we’re going to be delving into the types of metaverses that exist. 

 

The metaverse is considered to be the next stage of the web, commonly referred to as Web3. While this acts as an integrated platform unifying the real and virtual worlds, the metaverse itself is divided into multiple types, each unique in its own way. Different industries prefer different metaverses, depending on their offerings, but every industry today will agree that the metaverse isn’t just a trend but a business investment that’ll yield long-term benefits.

 

To quickly recap, the metaverse is an online universe that fuses the real and virtual worlds through Augmented, Virtual, and Mixed Realities, thereby allowing us to live in a digital space and do everything just like we would in the real world. It’s simply real life in an unreal world! 

 

Brands across the globe have begun exploring metaverse opportunities already, so here’s taking a look at the Metaverse Matrix and how brands fit in.

The traditional metaverses on the matrix primarily form the Web2 platforms, while those powered by Blockchain technologies form the Web3.  

 

Traditional Centralised Metaverse

Traditional metaverses aren’t dependent on blockchain technology. These operate on a centralised system, which means these virtual worlds are controlled by an organisation that has access to user data. Traditional metaverses are games like Minecraft or Counter Strike, where the user creates an avatar and participates in activities using the avatar. Surprisingly, although user data in this world may be compromised in this centralised space, these metaverses have the most users. During the month of August 2022 alone, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) had a peak concurrent player count of 1.03 million and reports say it’s still the most popular game in the world. Most fashion games also depend on the traditional metaverse, since they are primarily avatar based. If you want to amass a large audience using simpler technology and an enjoyable gaming experience, a traditional metaverse is your best bet. 

 

Blockchain Centralised Metaverse

A metaverse created using blockchain technology can be both, centralised or decentralised. While centralised blockchain metaverse allows for virtual interactions, the user data continues to be controlled by a central owner, just like it is in the traditional metaverse. However, the blockchain used here created a digital economic environment, allowing users to trade and exchange NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) and monetise their creations, using crypto wallets and currencies. Currently, the most popular centralised blockchain metaverse, as we all know, is Meta, focused on building technologies to help connect people. 

 

Blockchain Decentralised Metaverse

One of the biggest and most preferred choices; the decentralised metaverse became quickly popular because of its potential to give the power to the users, and not to centralised organisation. Users are free to take their own decisions and act accordingly, evolve in a virtual world, trade NFTs using cryptocurrencies and do everything and more than what they could in a centralised blockchain metaverse. 

Decentralised metaverses represent what a metaverse truly is! 

 

The concept of the decentralised world is to help everyone benefit – this is where options like ‘create and earn’ or ‘engage and earn’ come into play, to increase the possibility of earning or rewarding, either with NFTs and items or with digital currencies. This is precisely why businesses are also turning to the metaverse to monetise their assets. 

 

Examples of the decentralised blockchain include the very famous, Decentraland, where users can buy and sell plots of land, and capitalise further on these by hosting events on these virtual lands. Think Metaverse Fashion Week that was hosted back in March 2022, or The Moon Musical Festival, hosted in July. Another great example of this type of metaverse is Sandbox, which sells plots of lands for work, meetings, parties, events and much more. 

 

With all of these options available, it boils down to choosing the right one for your brand. As a brand, your primary focus is always about the experience you’re offering your audience, and that’s the basis on which you choose your metaverse. While gaming works great on centralised metaverses, the decentralised models open a world of possibilities. 

 

Here are some factors to consider before your brand takes the big phygital leap:

  • Build a story. Your story, your identity, values, purpose – all of it makes up your brand experience, so make sure you have a strong brand strategy in place before getting started
  • Define your metaverse objectives 
  • Find which metaverse your audience is in 
  • A majority of the audience in the metaverse is GenZ, so make sure your brand appeals to the younger audience
  • Focus on if and how the metaverse experience will add value to your users. Don’t simply jump into it because everyone is. 

 

Taking your brand to the metaverse involves a lot of components. There’s so much this new digital phase has to offer and explore. If you have a brand you want to take to the metaverse, and need a helping hand, feel free to reach out to us!

What makes up the Meta ecosystem

Like all the natural elements that come together with living beings to form an ecosystem, technology-driven components come together to create the Metaverse ecosystem. Although in its infancy, the metaverse has seen industry giants willing to invest heavily in Web3 technology to offer innovative experiences.

Here’s a look at the metaverse’s most essential elements.   

 

Blockchains

Blockchains are primary components of the metaverse. A blockchain is a distributed database or ledger shared among the nodes of a computer network. Blockchains combine technologies such as cryptographic keys, a peer-to-peer network containing a shared ledger and a means of computing to store the transactions and records of the network.

In simpler terms, it is a database which stores information electronically. However, unlike the current method of storing information via typical databases, a blockchain’s storage is, as described by IBM, “accurate, transparent and immutable.” A single blockchain collects data in chronological order in groups called blocks. Once the storage capacity of each block is full, it is closed and linked to another blockchain which also holds data. Once data is entered into the blockchain, it becomes uneditable. Remember how you’d fill multiple notebooks in school and refer to them to find all the data in one place? That’s precisely how blockchain works. Different sectors have adapted blockchain technology, from healthcare and insurance to media and travel, but its primary role is in cryptocurrency systems for secure and decentralised transaction records. 

 

Cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrency, as the name suggests, is an encrypted currency that works only on digital platforms and doesn’t rely on banking systems for verifications. Anyone anywhere in the world can transact using cryptocurrencies, with all of the entries being stored online in digital wallets, with no physical payments involved. Crypto is minted through a process called mining–essentially a process of validating digital transactions and recording them on the blockchain network. This process, which requires large amounts of power and advanced mining hardware, essentially involves guessing a 64-digit hexadecimal number. Ultimately, this results in the production of more coins.  These coins can also be purchased through currency brokers and stored in cryptographic wallets for future use – to buy and sell assets in the Metaverse or otherwise. 


Today, Bitcoin is just one of the many mainstream cryptocurrencies in use. There’s Ethereum, Tether, Binance Coin, and more.

 

Mixed Reality 

We’ve all heard about Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), but have you heard of Mixed Reality (MR)? As one of the technologies that serve as an essential component of the Metaverse, Mixed Reality merges physical and virtual worlds, allowing objects to co-exist and interact in both environments. It isn’t just a tool used for gaming or enjoyment but is being used in the education and healthcare sector, in manufacturing and retail, enhancing communication and e-learning experiences.

Gaming 

All work and no play is definitely not how the Metaverse work. After all, gaming is the precursor of the Metaverse. Gaming is expected to account for more than half of the Metaverse’ market value by 2024. All you have to do is put on your VR headset, design an avatar that looks just like you and interact with thousands of other gamers in the virtual world. Gaming in the Metaverse also includes buying and selling NFT assets to enhance your gaming experience and using cryptocurrency for your purchases. That’s pretty much why everything in the Metaverse is interconnected. Most 8-16 year olds have already taken to Metaverse gaming. Think Fortnite, or the famous Pokemon Go. While online safety remains a concern in gaming, the possibilities to explore are endless.

 

NFTs

NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token. To understand the concept, we need to understand what fungibility means. Something fungible is something you can easily exchange for the same value, without compromising on its quality or uniqueness. You could exchange a 10 AED bill for another 10 AED bill, and its value wouldn’t be compromised. In the case of NFTs, however, an NFT in exchange for another NFT may not consist of the same properties and have the same value. NFTs are mostly associated with creative works that are tokenised and sold on the internet. These include digital art, videos, games, clothing and accessories for your avatar and much more. NFTs are most commonly hosted on a cryptocurrency network, like Ethereum, or even on a Blockchain, where tracing and verifying the owner is easy, but his original identity isn’t compromised. 

 

Internet of Things 

The Internet of Things has been around for a while. As the name suggests, it connects everyday ‘things’ to the internet, allowing them to access data stored on the cloud and act as smart devices. This could be anything – your vacuum cleaner, smartwatch, thermostat, car, and many more. To give you an everyday example – you command Alexa to switch on and switch off your lights. In doing so, you connect its capabilities to an everyday object. Similarly, over the years, multiple devices have been connected to the cloud, and all of the computing devices, together with the technology associated with them. This is what’s called the Internet of Things. Very soon, the Metaverse will form a 3D interface for IoT, with the latter allowing the former to interact with the real environment, which has already given them the name ‘tech twins’. 

 

While these are some of the most important components that have already become part of the metaverse and will soon be more evident, there’s a lot more that makes up the metaverse. If you got to this blog and don’t have much of an idea about what this unique universe is, we’d recommend reading our first blog about what the metaverse is.

Making the most of Meta

The Metaverse is here with a big bang and brands have already started immersing themselves in this phygital world. To know what the Metaverse is, check out our previous blog. 

In order to create one-of-a-kind experiences in the virtual world and garner some never-seen-before engagement, some of the top-notch brands have ventured into the Metaverse and created remarkable experiences that left a lasting impression.

Let us take a deep dive into what these brands did in the Metaverse and how they stood out. 

 

Gucci and Roblox

Gucci officially launched itself into the Metaverse with Gucci Town, a space created on Roblox, a global gaming platform. The project’s dynamic destination lets the users express their individuality through virtual clothing and allows them to connect with like-minded people, as envisioned by its creative director Alessandro Michele. 

The Gucci Garden Experience Lands on Roblox - Roblox Blog

The virtual experience followed a two-week art installation to build brand awareness among its young consumers. Gucci invited users to indulge in greenery through its virtual gardens and explore digital goods comparable to avatar accessories. It proved to be much more effective than the products in the real world and generated significant sales. It also offered themed virtual rooms paying homage to the brand’s campaigns. The users were able to view, try on or purchase digital Gucci products to dress their avatars and get a look and feel about their product range. As they made their way through the virtual world, their avatars would absorb elements of each area. Fascinating, isn’t it? 

 

D&G and Decentraland

Dolce & Gabbana has also embarked on their journey to Metaverse. Like any brand that prides itself on being a luxury brand for fashion innovators and trendsetters, Dolce & Gabbana chose Decentraland, one of the more mainstream metaverse platforms currently in the market, as the main stage to launch their Disco Drip collection. Disco Drip is a collection of 20 looks offered as origin NFTs from Dolce & Gabbana and UNXD. According to egamers.io, the collection is on  digital display on OpenSea, and with it, users from different metaverses can dress their avatars with the signature Dolce & Gabbanna style.

Pokémon and Selfridges

The 25th anniversary of Pokémon was celebrated on a different scale. Selfridges had teamed up with the clothing brand Charli Cohen to create a unique digital shopping experience in the Metaverse, creating new avenues for metaverse retail concepts. To shop from their newest collection, customers will need to explore the Electric/City, a digital environment that will allow the fans to buy physical and virtual garments.

The digital environment, taking inspiration from Pokemon combined with cyberpunk, was created in partnership with Yahoo Ryot Lab and allowed fans to discover the Charli Cohen collection through a 360 video experience. The shoppers got to navigate the world with customized avatars they created, and dress them up the way they want through purchased digital garments viewed via augmented reality body tracking Snapchat lens. 

 

Coca-Cola and OpenSea

Coca-Cola has been refreshing the world for over 135 years, bringing people together and creating great memories. On the occasion of Friendship Day, they collaborated with players in the blockchain ecosystem such as OpenSea and introduced their first-ever NFT. As they ventured into the world of Metaverse, their collectible retro vending machine from 1956 was reimagined for the Metaverse, including an unlockable, iconic, real-life cooler made in Italy.

All of the NFTs depicted celebratory spirit and articulations of friendship. The glass contouring bottle and iconic advertising have made it to be one of the most celebrated brands in the world. 

 

These brand integrations have already paved their way into virtual reality and set themselves apart in the world of Web3 and Metaverse. These global brand campaigns give us a better understanding of what can work in the Metaverse and how being in this space has already become the new norm.

Moonbox Talks Meta: What is the Metaverse?

You’ve probably heard the word ‘Metaverse’ being thrown around recently because it’s literally what everyone’s talking about these days. The hype is real because the next big evolution of the internet has arrived, and we think it’s a great time for all of us to explore this digital universe together!

If you’ve been hearing about the Metaverse but can’t find a precise definition of it or how to navigate through it – here are some insights that should help!

 

What is the Metaverse?

The Metaverse is still a slightly vague concept to many. The Oxford Learner’s Dictionary defines it as ‘a virtual-reality space in which users can interact with a computer-generated environment and other users’. But in reality, the Metaverse is so much more than that – because it’s constantly evolving. 

 

Metaverse 101

The term ‘Metaverse’ is derived from two words; ‘meta’ which means ‘beyond’ and ‘verse’ derived from the term ‘universe, thereby saying its a virtual world, that goes beyond the real one. This  evolution of the internet will witness the rise of online 3-D or virtually integrated worlds wherein users can access virtual reality and augmented reality experiences. In simplified terms, it is a simulation where you can socialise, conduct business, and own digital properties like real estate and literally do everything that you can do in the real world! It is an upgraded version of social media that is built in the virtual world and connected via blockchains that allows you to own and live in it.

 

When did it all start?

The first use of the term ‘Metaverse’ was in 1982, in Neil Stephenson’s cyberpunk novel, Snow Crash. However, the novel didn’t portray the Metaverse in a very positive light, and the excitement for the future didn’t catch on. 

As a concept, the metaverse isn’t new. It dates back to 1838 when binocular vision combined two images, one for each eye, to make a single 3D image. Another mention of the concept was in 1935, when the science fiction book, Pygmalion’s Spectacles, was published. The main character explored a fictional world using a pair of sensory goggles. Then came VR machines in the 1970s.  

Later came multiple versions of VR machines and headsets, including the Oculus VR, bought by Facebook in 2014. This was led by AR, XR, smart glasses, and much more. 30 years since its first mention, the Metaverse has finally taken over!

 

Why is Metaverse part of Web3?

Anything and everything that’s digital begins with the web. It started way back when the World Wide Web came into existence allowing viewers to go online and see pages and sites. When its first versionor Web 1.0was created, it was designed to help people find information, thereby making it a read-only Web. This version was dedicated to data research, and interactivity was very limited. However, this paved the way for digital communication and soon after came Web 2.0, which connected people and created a whole new wave of reaching a target audience. Social media, blogging, vlogging, and every digital activity we are so accustomed to right now is part of Web 2.0, terming it the ‘participative social Web’. 

Now, the demand for decentralisation, openness, digital safety and better utility has led to the rise of Web 3.0 – the ‘read, write, execute Web’. Web3 moves away from controlled platforms like Facebook and Twitter, and towards more decentralised, autonomous platforms. It connects users with the power of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Extended Reality and Mixed Reality. Web 3.0 powers you to do everything in the virtual world, just as you’d do in the real world.

In simpler terms, Web3 and Metaverse cannot be used interchangeably. The Metaverse is still an internet-based system, and Web3 technologies only make it possible to access the Metaverse, much like you need a key to access a door. 

 

What next?

The Metaverse isn’t just a buzzword. It’s a virtual world that everyone’s begun existing in already. Whether you’re an individual, a brand, or a company, you’re going to have to learn to co-exist in this phygital world as both gain equal importance.

 

Brands are already in the Metaverse

To adapt to the new consumption habits and add value to lives, global brands like Nike, Adidas, Gucci, and plenty others have already started delving into Metaverse product designs. Giants like Disney are also considering virtual worlds that make for extraordinarily engaging experiences!

At a local level, hospitals, government bodies, the telecom sector and many, many more in the UAE have built platforms in the Metaverse to keep their audience engaged and enhance experiences. 

In our upcoming Moonbox Talks Meta series, we’ll be unravelling a lot more about the Metaverse. Brands have already begun investing in services that’ll help take them to the Metaverse. Don’t forget to take a look!

The Psychology of Brand Personality : How It Works With Examples

Why do people wait in line for hours to get the new iPhone? Or pay premium prices for Air Jordans? It all comes down to the psychology behind a brand’s personality. Brands you love don’t just happen to be your favorites.
Here we will be discussing in depth about brand personality and why it is an essential part in branding.

What is a Brand personality?

Brand personality is a vital part of brand positioning and differentiation. Brand personalities humanize brands, making them more relatable to their target audiences and giving them depth and nuance.

Brand personality is the part of your brand that your customers recognize and create a relationship with. Because of this, it plays a tremendous role in driving customer acquisition, fostering brand loyalty, and creating brand equity.

Why a brand personality is necessary?

Creating a brand personality can benefit your business in the following ways:

  • Resonate with the suitable target audience
  • Make an passionate connection and foster brand loyalty
  • Determine your brand
  • Improve brand equity

Brand personalities are often overlooked by businesses, resulting in mediocre branding. These businesses are efficiently flushed out by competitors who established an emotive connection with their audience from the start.

How to Define Your Brand Personality Traits?

Since personality traits are eventually human traits, the most useful way to define your brand’s personality is to consider it as if it were a person. The psychology of branding comes into play here.
The personality of a brand can be segmented into various distinct facets: emotion, intelligence, characteristics, and behaviors.

#1. Emotion vs. Intelligence

Just as with people, some brands are more emotionally driven: inspired by passion. And some are more intelligently manipulated: inspired by rational analysis and logical insight.
An emotion-driven brand looks and senses a lot differently than its intelligence-driven counterpart.
Comprehending where your brand falls on the EQ to IQ spectrum will permit you to define its more substantial attributes: its features and behaviours.

#2. Characteristics vs. Behaviors

Characteristics are how a brand is sensed by those it interacts with. They are its outward, most readily visible attributes. 

Harley Davidson, for instance, could be said to be tough and masculine.

Its behaviours, by comparison, are how a brand acts within the context of the globe around it. Red Bull, for example, is adventuresome and bold, as we investigate further below, sponsoring events around the globe that push the limits of intense performance.

#3. Attribute Definitions

In defining brand personality, we specify four attributes—usually two characteristics and two behaviours—from a broad-ranging list inspired by the five dimensions of brand personality documented above. We then provide these attributes with short descriptions customized to the brand in question.

How Brand Personality Works?

Brand personality is a framework that permits a company or organization to shape the way people judge its product, service, or mission. A company’s brand personality evokes an emotional response in a typical consumer segment, intending to incite positive actions that benefit the firm.

Customers are more probable to purchase a brand if its personality is equivalent to their own. There are five main types of brand personalities with typical traits:

  1. Excitement: Carefree, passionate, and youthful
  2. Sincerity: Kindness, thoughtfulness, and a direction toward family values
  3. Ruggedness: Rough, challenging, outdoorsy, and athletic
  4. Competence: Successful, accomplished, and effective, which is emphasised by leadership
  5. Sophistication: Elegant, prestigious, and occasionally even pretentious

Brand personalities are even more significant, especially in the digital age where automation and artificial intelligence (AI) technology is evolving. As much as consumers relish being able to shop online or have companies indicate their preferences, studies show that people still want personal interaction and direct customer service when it arrives to the way they do business with companies.

Key Note Down:

Customers are more probable to purchase a brand if its personality is equivalent to their own.

Why Is It Important for Companies to Describe Their Brand Personality?

It is essential for companies to accurately describe their brand personalities so they resonate with the right consumers. This is because a brand personality results in improved brand equity and represents the brand’s attitude in the marketplace. It is also an essential factor in any prosperous marketing campaign.

Examples of Brand Personality

There are numerous examples in the corporate planet of how brand personality functions. Here are some of the most familiar ones below.

  • Dove prefers sincerity as its brand personality. In doing so, the company expects to entice feminine consumers.  
  • Luxury brands, such as Michael Kors and Chanel, aspire for sophistication by concentrating on an upper-class, glamorous, and trendy lifestyle, which entices a high-spending consumer base.

Takeaways

Creating a personality for your brand will allow establish a more human connection with your customers. Customers with emotive ties to a brand will abide loyally for years. Here are a few takeaways to keep in mentality:

  • A brand personality is the human traits used to describe your brand
  • Build a passionate connection to your audience by aligning your brand personality to a brand archetype
  • You can set your brand personality by:
    • Defining your target market
    • Analyzing your competition
    • Establishing brand traits
    • Creating an aligned brand identity
    • Staying consistent with brand policies

Ultimate Guide For Branding in Marketing – Things To Consider

Brand marketing is the strategy of establishing and developing a relationship between a brand and consumers. Branding involves creating a strong, positive perception of a business, its products, or services in the mind of the customer by integrating elements such as logos, design, and consistent themes across all marketing communications.

Effective branding allows companies to differentiate themselves from their competitions and build a dedicated customer base.

In a Zendesk survey, 87% of consumers said consistent branding across all online and traditional platforms was vital.

Customers expect your tone of voice to be consistent across all channels, such as email, website, and customer service. As part of a rebranding campaign, you will need to update your logo, style, and colours everywhere online and offline. Make sure you make a consistent brand so that your customers revel in your omnichannel presence.

Branding in-store can be very distinct from online branding as in-store you have to worry about the positioning of products and props that can affect how a customer experiences your brand. Branding in-store is more experiential as people can walk about and choose things, whereas customers online are encountering a two-dimensional scene. Of course, certain elements of branding are constant both online and in-store. These include constant imagery and logos.

Branding is perhaps more vital than ever as marketplaces become more saturated, and it becomes more difficult to make genuine connections with consumers. Branding permits companies to reveal their unique stories and shift perceptions by offering customers something to consider in. It sparks interest and requests, customers, to realize, learn about, and establish a memorable relationship with the brand.

What is Branding Strategy?

branding strategy always known as a brand development strategy is the long-term plan to perform a series of long-term goals that eventually result in the identification and selection of your brand by consumers. A thriving branding strategy confines the brand’s mission, its commitments to its customers, and how these are communicated.

Often misapprehended, a branding strategy is not the sum of your logo, colour palette, or website; though these innovative elements are essential to a successful branding strategy. A branding strategy revolves around all the intangible factors that over time push brand awareness, brand equity, and brand sentiment.

What Is Brand Awareness? Meaning, How It Works, and Strategies

What Is Brand Awareness?

Brand awareness is a marketing phrase for the degree to which consumers identify a product by its name. Ideally, consumers’ attention to the brand may include positive perceptions of the qualities that differentiate the product from its competition.
Creating brand awareness is a fundamental step in advertising a new product or revitalising an older brand.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Brand awareness directs to the familiarity of consumers with a certain product or service.
  • A brand awareness campaign aims to familiarize the public with a new or modified product and differentiate it from the competitor.
  • Social media has become an essential new tool in brand awareness marketing.

How Brand Awareness Works?

Products and services that sustain a high level of brand awareness are likely to make more sales. Consumers encountered with choices are simply more likely to buy a name-brand product than an unfamiliar one.

For example, Think about the soft drink industry. Removed from their packaging, many soft drinks are unnoticeable. The giants in the industry, Coca-Cola and Pepsi, depend on brand awareness to make their brands the ones buyers reach for. Over the years, these companies have utilised advertising and marketing strategies that have raised brand awareness among consumers, and that has instantly translated into more sales.

This higher rate of brand awareness for predominant brands in a category can serve as a financial moat that stops competitors from gaining additional market share.

Brand Management – Everything You Need To Consider

Brand management is explained as the activity of managing the promotion of a certain brand of goods. This is a bit of a formal, narrow definition of what brand management really consists of, and doesn’t actually apply to many of the practical applications around these days.

What is Brand Management?

In marketing, and basically speaking, brand management is a sequence of techniques used to improve the perceived value of a product or service. Effective brand management creates loyal customers through positive brand association and has a positive impact on your bottom line. Further, strategic brand management can assist companies to enhance brand recognition, increase revenue, and gain long-term business goals.
Why is brand management so necessary? A great brand gives that organization a more significant mindshare of potential buyers. For instance, not everyone requires a new car today, but by assuring that their brands are recognized all the time, car manufacturers make it straightforward for a consumer to make that choice as soon as the need occurs. Brand awareness and recall can assist organizations to be the first choice when the demand for their product or service arises.

Winding up

Hope you all got crystal clear idea on Branding in Marketing. Brand marketing is about highlighting the strengths of a brand in order to give it enduring power for the long term. It concentrates on strengthening relationships between brands and consumers, and when accomplished most effectively, it is utilized in concert with marketing activities to establish defining attributes for the brand that allows foster brand advocacy and commitment.
