IKEA’s Klippbok, the Virtual Visualization App for Today’s Consumer
Posted by admin on Apr 18, 2014
Welcome to the Kleber & Associates blog! Here’s the latest on IKEA’s Klippbok, virtual visualization inspiration so you can “try before you buy.”
Have you heard about IKEA’s cool Klippbok? Swedish for “scrap book,” the new website and iPad app allows users to create mood boards by dragging and dropping items onto a blank page. Mix and match different items to create the perfect room or experiment with different color swatches for the perfect sofa, Klippbok is a fun way to explore IKEA’s offerings. Best of all, it enables customers to imagine what different pieces of furniture and accessories would look like in their own homes.
“Try Before You Buy” at it’s Best!
There’s nothing like trying a product or service before committing. Companies have used this approach for years to gain and maintain customers in highly competitive markets. Think about the impact of trying a free lotion or test driving a car at the dealership. At the very least, these free experiences pique interest, this may lead to increased sales – a company’s main goal. Experience is everything and although the concept of “try before you buy” is not a new one, companies are being forced to get creative in a culture where people use computers, phones and tablets experientially to connect to the world. This makes finding engagement opportunities with customers more infrequent than ever, leaving companies wondering what to do next.
IKEA’s Klippbok Provides the Inspiration
Home product companies can look to IKEA for a little inspiration. Always thinking of new ways to reinvent themselves, IKEA has done a brilliant job of marketing themselves as an industry leader. The inexpensive and modern furniture they produce can be found in just about any home. From friends and family to coworkers, there’s something for everyone at IKEA.
