I was on the train in D.C. this weekend and there was a QR code for a metro map, pretty cool.examples of how you use them?
Personally I've never once seen a QR code that I thought "hey, I really want to scan that".
But I like the idea of it...would like to find some practical purpose I can use them for.
I have never seen one on a business card, but that would be a good idea. Especially if I could scan it and it could add it to my contacts with all the info.Jon, why're you asking?
A few days ago a marketing guy came to our office and strongly suggested we have QR codes on our business cards. I wondered how many people actually scan them on their phones. Only a few people I know do, but he said it was the wave of the future.
Website makes the most sense to me. All the information is there (products, hours, contact information, address). Better that than your phone/email or a map which may or may not be necessary.it directs you to the website... the thing is, i dont need people having my contact info in their phone or anything like that. I thought about directing people to google maps so they could see where the store was, but the website just seemed easier. Now i'm wondering what else i could have done...
I haven't tried the site on my phone, but I think it would be a good idea to point the QR code to a mobile friendly page (if there isn't one already). Things like the drop down menu on JKI and the flash (I think thats flash) don't always show up nicely on phone browsers.Website makes the most sense to me.
