One of the fastest-growing internet marketing trends currently, interactive content transforms advertisements from traditional, text-based content to dynamic, immersive and interactive media, culminating in a vastly more engaging experience from the audience’s perspective. The embedded infographic provides statistics about interactive content in internet marketing through 2022.


Examples of interactive content include 360-degree videos, augmented reality advertisements, and quizzes and polls.

Research reveals that 91% of modern buyers actively seek out interactive content. Interactive content not only makes buyers feel more of a connection with brands, but it also makes them feel more involved in the buying process. Rendering advertisements more memorable and engaging, this powerful marketing tool is significantly more effective in terms of eliciting the desired viewer response.

Also known as XR or extended reality, augmented reality is a relatively recent and extremely powerful addition to the toolkit of digital marketers. Sephora recently added the new technology to its marketing toolkit, providing filters to enable customers to try out their makeup products virtually and observe how cosmetics would look on their skin.

Arguably the most famous example of augmented reality in advertising was the phenomenally successful global sensation Pokémon Go. Soon after its launch in 2016, the game captivated the imaginations of users from all over the world, encouraging players to roam the streets searching for virtual creatures they observed in real-time via their smartphone screen.
