Virtual Reality for Trade Shows: Building on a Limited Timeline

Posted by Mark Hemmer on 9/26/19 10:00 AM

It's one thing to have an idea for a unique tech-forward trade show display that will grab attention. It's another thing to see that idea realized in time. Trade shows sneak up quickly and putting together an effective display is a matter of overcoming a set of ever-present challenges. These include limited budget, limited time, and limited help. Unless each impediment can be successfully cleared, the display won't meet its potential. If you have an idea to leverage new technology for your next trade show - say, virtual reality, for example - it can be discouraging to peek at the calendar and see the days before showtime dwindle.

How can you build the experience you need on a limited timeline?

Why ONEFIRE Puts Customer Success First

Posted by Mark Hemmer on 12/11/18 2:43 PM

At INBOUND 2018, HubSpot founder and CTO Dharmesh Shah introduced HubSpot's Customer Code during a keynote address. The Customer Code (which is detailed below) is all about solving for customer success. Earlier in the speech, founder and CEO Brian Halligan had announced that the marketing funnel was out and the flywheel was in. Instead of seeing customers as the output of process in the funnel model, the flywheel puts customers in the center and focuses on removing friction to ensure smooth spinning. 

ONEFIRE's team was in attendance that day and we found ourselves nodding along with Brian and Dharmesh. Through first-hand experience, we've learned that putting customer success first is the best approach to doing business. We had plenty of stories to share with other agencies about helping clients grow better.

Use Virtual Reality For More Efficient Employee Training

Posted by Mark Hemmer on 9/24/18 10:00 AM

Many employees need hands-on training to feel confident taking on new tasks. But, many companies don't have the time, resources, or free hands to provide that training. As a result, either employees end up with insufficient training or the company winds up spending too much time and energy to provide adequate training. If that sounds familiar, it's time to take a different approach. Virtual Reality can be used to boost training efficiency, engaging employees and empowering them to learn on their own.

Looking for a Backstage Pass? Virtual Reality is the Answer

Posted by Mark Hemmer on 9/21/18 10:00 AM

The backstage pass. It's exclusive. It's expensive. It's ... suddenly available to everybody. 

Virtual reality (VR) has broken down barriers of all kinds. Whether you want to visit a university campus before applying, see far away places before booking a trip, or show off products without paying to ship them, virtual reality has changed what's possible. 

VR can even give you access to experiences that were previously out of reach. If you have a favorite band (or two, or three), you know the feeling. You want to know everything about them. You want to know what the writing process is like. You want to know the meaning behind the lyrics. You want to see them practice. You want to know where they got their outfits. You want to know what they eat, what they drink, and hear stories from the road.

The modern workplace carries a heavy burden. As work in general has become more flexible and technology has enabled people to get work done from anywhere, the space your company provides can be a huge difference-maker in recruitment. While each individual has their own ideal workplace in mind, there's most definitely an arms race going on between companies to see who can offer the more attractive space.

Posted by Mark Hemmer on 9/14/18 10:00 AM

Everybody wants marketing collateral that 'jumps out,' 'leaps off the page,' or otherwise grabs attention. Augmented Reality can literally make that happen. Dazzling 3D images can be placed over the physical world wherever you need them to be, adding a new element to traditional marketing or reinventing your efforts altogether. Below are three examples of the former. Traditional marketing can still be effective, if new technology is leveraged correctly. See how traditional marketing collateral can come to life with AR:
