Scanning for fans!

The one thing that all businesses are constantly looking for is a way to become more popular and relevant. To maintain sustainability in the business world, you need to have as many fans of your service or product as possbile. But in order to stand out in the business world, you have to be innovative and have a digital presence. Most people will agree that we are currently living in a digital world. Trade publications are vastly being replaced by their online versions. Magazine and newspaper subscriptions are steadily becoming obsolete. With the push for digital media comes the need for more computer and mobile applications. One such application is the use of QR code. This unique bar code lets customers - and potential customers - instantly learn more about a business, by visiting a mobile version of the business. Many magazines, such as Get Married, and websites, such as Google Places, are utilizing this technology. The only thing that a person needs to utilize this code is a smartphone and a barcode reader on their phone. There are many difference QR does reader applications for smartphones. When you see a QR code, just use your phone to scan it and it will take you to the mobile version of the business or article that it is intended for. The above code is for my Google Places business page. Try it out and let us know what you think of this form of technology!
