Austin Williams Stakes Its Claim in the Metaverse

Austin Williams has staked its claim in the metaverse within Decentraland, building a digital re-creation of our Hauppauge, NY, agency space.

Why should brands be in the metaverse?

The metaverse—with its many iterations—presents myriad benefits for brands. We live on the cutting edge of emerging technologies and learn firsthand how brands can harness the power for their own benefit. We will leverage our experiences in the metaverse to help brands take advantage of:

  • Virtual event opportunities
  • Product/service showcases
  • Collaborative spaces for employee engagement and interaction

The metaverse, in its simplest form, is an alternate, digital world—still in its infancy. Its applications, however, are already virtually limitless. There’s even speculation on how it may transform healthcare! With 70% of consumers expressing an intention to use the metaverse for non-gaming reasons in the near future, it’s certainly worthwhile for brands to explore.
