At the end of my recent trip to California, for ‘the coolest sports photography event of the year’ The Sports Shooter Academy [full blog post to follow shortly] I was handed a business card from one of my fellow shooters. Looking at the card in my hand, I see a white square with black squares within it. After a brief pause, and having seen this mysterious square before, I asked Pieter why it was on his card. For those of you that haven’t guessed what I’m talking about yet, it was a QR Code. I had never seen this integrated into a business card before, but what a great idea it is. A quick download of an app onto your iPhone, I use Bakodo, you are ready to scan any code and the information will display on the screen.
There are infinite uses for a QR Code, I see Macy’s using them for advertising. For now, I have simply set up mine to link to this site, but plan to expand on this in the near future.
While many may ask, what does/can technology do for me, I think this is a prime example of how technology is helping people and business be seen and get their message out.
So give my QR Code a scan below, and see how it works for yourself.
