I’ve seen people use QR codes to relay specific information such as web site links, text, phone numbers, and text messages. It provides a link that can get more information into someone’s smartphone. If your brochures and marketing materials are too dense with text and graphics, you can create a web page with everything you want to say. You can then create a QR code that sends users to that web page. A QR code is usually a square and looks like this:
Beautiful? That is not the objective. It’s not for the human eye. It’s for your smartphone’s QR code reader. iPhones have QR code readers built in. Others may or may not. I am using an app called ScanLife to test these examples. I also found and downloaded a free app called Google Goggles that read this link and opened www.cameronparkcomputer.com.
Mark Anthony Germanos is the author of two books, Escape the Cubicle: How to leave your corporate or government job for something better and How to Make Computer Systems Work for You. He has faith in a slow but sure Sacramento business revival. Sacramento small business owners are leading the way. His second book, Escape the Cubicle, is for those who want to escape cubicle jobs and become successfully self-employed. Escape the Cubicle answers the questions: "How can I grow my business" and "How do I become my own boss."
Mark is the President of Cameron Park Computer Services. As a business owner and computer networking consultant, he has seen habits that successful Sacramento small business owners embrace. He helps Sacramento small business owners embrace those habits to increase their profits, efficiency and happiness. An advocate of Sacramento business revival, Mark believes everybody should run their lives like a small business, perform SWOT Analyses and use social media campaigns to improve business. He used to say “social media is stupid.” That was until he attended a conference and saw how Sacramento small business owners can use social media campaigns as a valuable tool. Since then, he has earned more than $40,000 in business via social media. His Sacramento small business clients also have five-figure returns. Sacramento small business owners that launch social media campaigns give themselves a comparative advantage over those who lag behind. Mark does not do everything, but his clients do receive great results and participate in the Sacramento business revival when they follow his advice.
Mark moved from Chicago and restarted his business in California with a cell phone and a Honda Civic. An active triathlete, he has a life, a dream wife and a dog.
