|Bored now - unless it's dinnertime|
Perhaps it's delayed reaction from our wonderful vacation. I like that idea! Bet you didn't know the rejuvenating effects of a vacation can be delayed up to a month after your return? Or maybe its simply that the dust is finally settling from a busy spring season of finding new tenants for our apartments and getting them happily settled into their new homes. Whatever it is, my current post is in response to a newsletter email I received from Moo. Normally I just glance at them, but this time it caught my attention.

Now Moo is recommending that QR codes be used to help with individual branding - helping direct people to your website or blog. And touting their partnership with a new website/service called About.me.

|Sample cards from About.me|
It seems low maintenance - more of a business card than a blog. And hey, when I checked it out, I could actually get my name Karen Williams as my URL. That alone sold me! Yeah for early adoption - those of you with common last names will know and share my pain.
So now I am the proud? owner of yet another web page. The background image is stock, but I liked it for now.
And back to that QR code thingamagiggy - About.me has an offer for a set of free Moo business cards (I pay shipping), with my About.me webpage and my own QR code directing people to my new landing page. And QRStuff will make a QR code for you based upon your input.
So - out of curiosity - how many of you
a) have your own QR codes already (and if you do - how are you using it) and
b) would actually use your smart phone to check out where the QR code led if you were handed a business card that featured one?
c) As a bonus question - how many of you actually tweet or follow people on Twitter?
Ok, as a barely literate blogger, I can tell you I've never heard of QR codes. My hubs has a smart phone, but mine is a smart wannabe. So, I don't twitter either. Guess I'm just the wrong person to ask. :( But I'm glad I get to learn all this new stuff anyway!ReplyDelete
