the QR code.
If you haven't seen these around, they are little squares that you scan to gain access to websites, coupons, social networking profiles, apps, etc.
And I had the chance to create my own with the company, QRT.co.
First, here is one of the three codes I had the chance to make:
How cool is this? Plus, the custom codes I created are easy and cheap to make. And I definitely want to show off the fancy "made by" insignia of Qrt.co:
So, the basic codes are free (without any special design) and their custom codes, which I made using their awesome templates, are only $9.95!
So, how could you use this?
Sure, you can use these on a blog.
But one other idea to throw out there -
How about those self published authors? Wouldn't you love your readers to be one quick scan away from your social networking accounts? We all recognize these codes and if I saw this on an "about the author" page for a book I loved, I would certainly use it.
My suggestion for authors in the process of self publishing to consider including this nifty piece of technology to promote your social networks and connect even more with your readers.
My only suggestion would be that Qrt.co allow for editing later. Especially being able to edit links and layout. Because right now when you make one, you can't go back to make changes. But overall, I'm very pleased with the result.
