Virtual Reality has already earned the attention of many industries, and it’s not surprising at all – possibilities created by VR for business are countless. However, explaining to your clients that you’re using virtual reality can be a daunting task – especially for those still using flip phones (you know the kind). But while virtual reality is undoubtedly sophisticated technology, it’s also incredibly simple to use. Here’s our top three tips on seamlessly introducing virtual reality to your clients.
1. Get the goggles on them – first thing.
Don’t confuse them with words like headsets and virtual reality and VRE’s. The best way to explain virtual reality is to just hand them a pair of goggles. Have a sample space (from our Showcase, if you’d like) already loaded – that’s when the penny drops.
Once they’ve had their “Holy Guacamole” moment, then you can get into depth about how you’ll be using virtual reality to collaborate better with them.
2. Start with your own headset.
Don’t send them a brand new headset straight off the bat with a hurried two-line email about how to use it. The best way to ease clients into the world of virtual reality is to have it set up beforehand and ready for them to try right then and there.
If they express interest in doing it themselves, or you’ve already introduced it to them and you now want to simplify your collaboration process, that’s the time to consider getting them set up with a headset.
3. Reassure them.
We humans usually take a little while to adjust to change. Let your clients know (before anything else) that this new technology isn’t designed to confuse them or get more money out of them – it’s just a newer, better way of letting them see what’s in your head.
Once you start walking them through it, they’ll see how easy and approachable it really is.
And – trust us – they won’t want to go back.
