Urban shoppers have become smarter at filtering Ads that come in a non-engaging, static shape. We now live in an era in which we need to get more creative about placing our messages, or we risk getting lost in the communications cluster and never reach the targeted customer. Veiled is a mobile app that promises a new way of placing offers that will entertain consumers and revolutionize advertising. It is targeted for the young generation who has become tired of traditional advertising and needs a more interactive approach. Imagine the entire city as a huge canvas that can be filled with offers and discounts ready to be picked by those who pass them by. Any user who downloads Veiled can get notifications about nearby offers, use augmented reality to search the surroundings for the specific store and then claim the offer and collect it on the spot. Why use Veiled? With the gamification of nearly everything, people are incentivized when they receive a challenge. Therefore, the discounts and coupons that donai??i??t leverage the creative possibilities of today will simply be ignored by younger, digital-savvy audiences. Enter Veiled, the new way to interact with offers and with the city, like a treasure hunt. We asked the team to say a few words about Innovation Labs and the programai??i??s role in developing their product: “We came to the Innovation Labs Program to learn more about how to grow our startup, also to make sure that our idea is sustainable and get in […]
