How to get started in mobile marketing – thnxz to @qrcodepress


Mobile marketing has reached the point of explosion, and it is now perfectly clear to most marketers and businesses that taking part in it and using its techniques is no longer an option. It’s a necessity.

(Abstract)

To start, business owners must recognize that failing to begin a mobile strategy right now could be suicide.

The first step to getting started is to actually begin. It’s not enough to just know that you need to mobile optimize and start reaching out to smartphone and tablet users. You need to act. Just deciding isn’t going to make it happen. Begin to find out what types of approaches are available so that you can consider their implementation.

Business owners should find an experienced, professional mobile marketer to help to build this strategy. 

Strategy must be discussed from the ground, up, and it should address the following components:

• Mobile web – optimization of the original website or the development of a new site designed specifically for the smaller screen.
• SMS (short message service) – also known as text messaging, which can send discounts, contests, and other promotions to consumers, regardless of whether they have smartphones or feature phones.
• Mobile ads – these are typically a hard sell, but in specific circumstances can be highly beneficial.
• QR codes – two dimensional barcodes help to bring the real world and mobile world together and are exceptionally inexpensive to create, implement, and use.
• Check-in apps – last year saw a skyrocketing use of these applications among users of smartphones.

An Italian charity is using the quick response barcodes for education in public restrooms.

 QR codes toilet paper HIV charity

Sieropositivo, a charity in Italy that works to promote HIV awareness, is using QR codes printed on toilet paper in public restrooms to help to spread the word about the disease and increase the knowledge that women have about the way that it is spread.

Women who visit those lavatories can use their smartphones to scan the barcode.

The toilet paper with the QR codes is being used in women’s public washrooms in trendy clubs located in Milan and Rome. The women who actually visit those bathrooms will notice that the toilet paper rolls have a question printed upon them, as well. It asks:

“When you use a public restroom do you fear diseases? What about when you have sex?”

British War Memorial Incorporates QR Codes – thnxz to @QReateAndTrack


According to an article from the Huffington Post, “special panels have been installed at First World War memorials enabling the public to use their smartphones to learn about the history of the service personnel who lost their lives.”

Over 100 panels are being places across the UK as educational tools to shed light on the events of WWI. The article goes on to say that, “when scanned with a smartphone, the QR code provides access to information including personal stories of some of the casualties buried or commemorated at the memorial.”

Roughly 100 years after the first World War, this QR Code campaign is meant to offer an effective and long-lasting educational facet to the war memorials. Prince Edward was quoted as saying, “it is a powerful means of combining traditional methods with new technology to ensure we never forget.”

These efforts by the British government signal more widespread acceptance for QR Codes and various mobile technologies – a bridge from historic events to our smartphones.
