What does Ray-ban's Entry into NFTs Mean for Brands in 2022? 

Supriti Tripathy

30th Dec'21

The year 2021 will be remembered as a ground-breaking year for NFTs to gain the brand's trust. Everyone from Disney to Coca-Cola to Ticketmaster to the NBA released NFTs this year. European eyewear conglomerate EssilorLuxottica, Ray-Ban's parent company, made this revolutionizing move that will further the process of popularising NFTs for conservative business people as well as artists. This year Ray-Ban and digital artist Oliver Latta (@extraweg) collaborated to create the first-ever pair of NFT Ray-Ban Aviators to raise charity funds for the Italian art trust. With Ray-Ban's entry into NFT, the future of fashion looks extraordinary while also opening doors for other brands to follow the course.

 

What is NFT?

NFT, i.e., "non-fungible token," is used to describe products or goods that are not interchangeable with others due to their distinct qualities. Dollars, for example, are fungible because you can always swap ten one-dollar bills for ten dollars. Similarly, collectibles are "non-fungible," which implies that each object has a distinct value.

NFTs have some distinctive characteristics:

1. Each non-fungible token has a unique owner who can be easily identified.

2. It cannot be manipulated in any way.

 

blockchain tech

 

In a nutshell, NFTs tap into a deep desire in humans to belong, be a part of a society and express themselves through their goods. The Ethereum blockchain has NFTs. With a market value second only to Bitcoin, Ethereum is the most commonly utilized blockchain on the planet. Ethereum accounts for the majority of the NFTs market. Although we haven't seen the full scope of what can be converted into an NFT, a few key industries are quickly adopting NFTs. 

 

All About The Collaboration

Ray-Ban's entry into NFT has opened the virtual doors to connect its customers with metaverse. Created in 1936 by Bausch & Lomb, it is famous for its Wayfarer and Aviator sunglasses lines. Oliver Latta, popularly known for his unique 3D motion designs and thoughtful artistry, is the right man to collaborate with Ray-Ban.

The proceeds from the NFT auction were intended to benefit trusts, whereas buyers who participate in the auction could use the proceeds to invest in cryptocurrency at any time. With the success of this collaboration, Depicting a perfect example of innovation that's accessible, Ray-Ban is gearing to release more NFTs in the future.

 

How Have Other Brands Adopted NFT?

Other Brands have begun to experiment with NFTs as well. To commemorate the year of its inception, 1893, Pepsi has released the Mic Drop Genesis NFT, a collection of 1,893 pieces of NFT art. Many more brands are entering the NFT market, and by 2022, there will be an explosion of brand-related NFTs.Looking into a few industries and brands that ventured into NFTs in 2021,

 

other brands with NFT

 

1. Virtual land plots - Decentraland provides virtual land plots for investors to develop. Play-to-earn NFT game concepts, such as digital horse racing, have evolved.

2. NFTs for the affluent – Gucci and Jacob & Co are among the luxury companies that have entered the NFT industry.

3. NBA Top Shot and DraftKings are both cashing in on digital sports collectibles.

 

other brands with NFT

 

4. NFTs as proof of ownership in the real world – Nike plans to build NFTs that serve as proof-of-ownership over real-world sneakers as counterfeit shoes flood the market.

5. Musicians ranging from Snoop Dogg to Kings of Leon sell NFTs of their music and art.

 

Future Of NFTs

The success and lessons learned by brands who got in early will only benefit them in the future. There are many more possible uses for the NFT collectible, which brands recognize. More firms will utilize NFTs to develop brand loyalty in 2022 by providing fans with special discounts and promotions that aren't available through standard distribution methods.

Industries that experienced revenue losses due to the pandemic (and some still do) will rely on digital opportunities such as NFTs to generate new revenue and raise brand recognition. Brands can pave the way by employing the right specialists in the industry to expand knowledge of NFTs, what they are, and how to use them so that their customers can understand. 

 

Why should Marketers be Concerned about NFT? Is it just Another Catchphrase?

Perhaps—or perhaps not.

Here's what you need to know about NTFs as a brand enthusiast, including how to use them to build your business.

1. Utilize NFTs to increase brand awareness.

Through NFTs, brands can make better interactions with customers and market their brands digitally. 

 

2. If you are interested in expanding your brand awareness initiatives into the metaverse, NFTs can assist brands in doing that.

For example, Marriott's Marriott Bonvoy travel program takes advantage of NFTs. Three artists collaborated to produce three different NFTs inspired by travel experiences.

 

future of NFT

 

3. Brands can take initiatives via NFT aimed at a younger demographic.

For example: If you want to broaden your audience and tap into new markets, lookalike audiences on Facebook aren't your only choice. Brands are targetting a younger audience who are interested in innovative technologies like NFTs.

 

4. It keeps your brand's image safe.

NFTs thrive on identity, traceability, and ownership. So combining it with the brand value is a one-of-a-kind offering and a natural progression. It opens up new possibilities and foreshadows the future of collecting, where blockchain technology will set the standard for provenance.

 

5. NFTs For a Good Cause

Consumers want to patronize businesses that give back. In fact, 84 percent of millennials say they prefer to support brands that are open about their principles and have a trustworthy culture. They aren't looking for promises; they are looking for results.

 

6. NFTs as a Marketing tool

Because NFTs are still in their early stages, now is the most significant time for marketers to get in. It's a great way to catch people's attention and build a fan base. You can make limited-edition memorabilia to remember important events and holidays and use it in your holiday marketing campaigns. You can give them out to the first X number of customers or auction them off separately.

 

What Does Advertising in the Future Look Like?

Cookies are no longer alive. In a few months, the way we advertise and the market will be irrevocably transformed. The transition to the new online era entails increased privacy and a reduced ability to reach clients in the same way we do now. Google, Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok will most likely cease to exist in their current form. It reduces our need for extensive marketing channels to attract clients, which we've relied on for years. We'll have to look for new opportunities instead. How can we do that? 

1. By creating first-party customer communities and experiences (likely inside the metaverse).

2. By identifying ad potential within games and metaverse real estate.

3. Via collaborations and partnerships with creators to utilize their audience.

This is going to be a major, massive shakeup, and it'll happen sooner than you think.

 

What is the Cost of Creating an NFT?

While you can make NFTs for free, you'll most likely need to spend money on promoting them. The price of collaborating with a well-known artist might run into the hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. You do not, however, have to spend so much money. Expect to pay between a few hundred and a few thousand dollars depending on the magnitude of the campaign.

To conclude, NFTs give brands a new opportunity to communicate with their customers, raise awareness, and even promote new product lines. The year is marked with innovations and collaborations. From Crocs that would introduce bio-based material croslite footwear to Ray-Ban's entry into NFT, 2021 has successfully created a buzz in the market. Are they, however, here to stay, or are they merely another marketing blip? Only time will tell!. According to what we've seen, big brands are utilizing NFTs in novel ways, so it's worth paying attention to.

I live in Austria and I invested the sum of $ 78,400 in Bitcoin with Coin Flip, a cryptocurrency company I met online. My initial investment increased from $ 78,400 to $ 152,700 after a week. This felt so good as the investment grew swiftly in just a few weeks. When it was time to retire, my withdrawal request was denied, all effort to make withdrawal declined, then I realized I had been ripped off. All thanks to DAVIDMOORE9951 at g male dot COM for recovering my money back.

Hi my name is RYAN ASHLEY, please take your little time to read this it might be of help to you. How do I recover my crypto from a scammer. The Question is Does/or has anyone been successful with Crypto Scam Recovery? My Answer is Yes, I have successfully recovered my crypto from scammers on two different occasions .my first experience. I invested $35,000 worth of crypto. With a forex broker who I met online since I usually see several promos on his page, I felt he was a good one and a reliable one at that. After sending my crypto I felt a little discomfort because I realized how will I just sent such a high amount of money to a total stranger to who I know nothing of or his location, but I felt I wasn't the only one since I have seen several promos of his. So my investment was to last for three weeks firstly Then a possible renewal after my ROI, but three weeks came I expected my money the first day it never came, the second day still nothing and on the third day I reach out to them requesting for my money, but I was told they were having little problem with their sever and I was told to be patient for a week and my ROI would be sent to me, but a week past and few days I reach out to them again and. This time I got no response I tried for several days with no positive reply and eventually I was told to send some more money to my account to enable, which I did, I sent a total amount of $5000 that was what I was asked to do. Immediately again every connection was lost I cant even reach their web page anymore. I told this to a few of my friends and that was when I got the hint that it was a scam. I was highly devastated and confused I didn't know what to do. I went to the cops but they couldn't help because they had no lead on the whereabouts of the case or broker. Then I Went back online to made several research on how to retrieve cryptocurrency because I have heard a lot of times how people recovered their money but I wasn't so sure about that, I know after reading several pages I should have a little knowledge on how to go about that. And I did just that I saw several Recovery agencies and their reviews, but I decided to go for D-HACKER Group Hackers, I wasn’t too sure of them at first about Fund Retrieve, as I was still very scared to fall another victim of Scam, but base on the way people was commenting on there job well done, I decided to be on a safe side by contacting someone who commented, to know if they are real or not. Believe me it still amazes me how they went about it but am just grateful they did. So I'll advise you also to do the same, reach out to them make a formal complaint, don’t hope they will get your job done within the time given by them. and Yes there work price is reasonable, I bet you it worth it. They have helped me recovered both stolen funds from the broker scammers, and I am sure they can help you recover yours too. To save your time go straight by Email dhackersplatform@gmail.com go and get your worried solved Note they are not limit to just Recoveries only they can do other hacking stuff as well, as I read many other testimonies on School Results upgrading, credit score repairs as well fixing crime records, this people are awesome with their job. Try them and thank me later

When I found Dr.Prince I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact Dr.Prince through his website and He told me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr.Prince helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr.Prince to anyone in need of help.

I Got a notification that my credit score has dropped so when I checked  it ,it went from a 760 down to 617 .I was totally stunned . Nothing has changed that i'm aware of ,all my bills are paid on time and not much card debt .I was so surprised how it is possible to drop so much and have no idea why .I saw an article that says thirty days late payments will stay on your reports for two years. I now remembered I had one late payment about four years ago. It was a sad experience for me and my lovely wife .we needed an immediate solution , that was when we came across some local  community  beneficiaries reviews of NEWHORIZONCREDIT1 ,then i contacted  them at (  NEWHORIZONCREDIT1ATGMAILdotCOM ) .I was so shocked when i received an email regarding changes on my credit report .I discovered all my negative tradelines  were off  and my credit score increased from 617 -785 within five working days .

I Would recommend his services to anyone without hesitation.

As a student borrower at texas university ,  about  200 point credit score dropped because of incorrect information reported by a student loan servicer, the servicer said it wasn't reporting flawed information and referred  me to the credit bureaus .The point drop in my credit score prevented me from taking steps like moving and buying a car .But no one seems to help fix it even when I tried so hard to rebuild it.Thanks to NEWHORIZONCREDIT1ATGMAILdotCOM ,Who helped improve my credit score tremendously from 650-800 within five working days,Now the rest is history .

Losing money in the form of lost bitcoin is very easy these days and has also become quite common, a slight mistake is all it takes and we are actually all prone to making mistakes. Money lost to investment portfolios can definitely be recovered with the help of an expert. I was able to get my lost coin recovered recently with the help of ‘( HACKSTARS101 @ WORKMAIL . COM) He’s professional and I recommend him to anyone who may need help recovering lost funds as well.
