Custom Instagram AR Filters are getting more and more popular among Instagram users. Developing simple Instagram masks won’t be difficult. If you want more complex 3D effects, it may take longer.
Why do you need an AR mask on Instagram?
AR masks allow you to promote not only personal blogs, but also big brands with no additional costs. In most cases, this is an effective method of brand promotion.
The name of the user who created the mask increases brand awareness and increase reach in general.
If people really like your mask, and they find it useful, they begin to add it to themselves.
4.Present your product
Masks can be used in models to show the product line. You can give potential clients the opportunity to “try on” a new hairstyle or jewelry – this will help increase sales;
5.Interest to the brand
Make a name face mask or add a mention of the brand or elements associated with it. This will help in building user loyalty;
The possibilities of AR Filters are endless.
Masks can be used in a variety of business areas. For example, create masks for a tattoo business with sketches of tattoos that can be “tried on” on different parts of the body. For example Kylie Cosmetics released masks that made it easier for their customers to choose the product. Users could choose the colors of lipsticks and eyeshadows that suit them.
