Many of us believe mobile blogging in fashion is the next big thing. Seems like smart phones are pretty much doing everything right? Nowadays you don’t even have to use your credit card anymore you can just swipe your phone, Isn't it crazy? Times are changing and it is imperative that we keep up. This brings me to my point, Why not make our blogs more accessible to mobile users? Sure they can always go to their web browser and type in your URL, But that's time consuming and not every one will go out of their way to do it.
It’s about that time for me where I have to get some new business cards printed and I strongly believe we should all have QR (Quick response) codes on our business cards. They call it “Quick Response” for a reason. It takes you to a website within seconds after you scan it. It's amazingly smart phone friendly. I have an I phone with ATT and the scanner was a free app, It works great. I wouldn't even stop there, I would put it on my email signature and anything else I think people will be viewing. QR codes have become very popular amongst companies. I see them on all sorts of advertisements on subways, bus stops, and I have to admit I've scanned a few I found interesting. It's almost kind of… Fun? I have seen a few on business cards but not enough.
When attending social events it can be hard enough to break the ice, So when you do get around to chit-chatting and handing out your business cards, It would be nice to have a QR code on it. If I enjoyed talking to you I would probably scan it right on the spot.
Below is an example of what my next business card will look like front and back. Please excuse the poor drawing skills, I promise the actual card will be way nicer.
What do you think about QR codes? Hit or miss? Do you use them already? I say hit and I believe we will be seeing more and more of these.
