Great news – the QR code opportunity is wide open!
Last evening my husband and I had the pleasure of attending the Annual Tri-Chamber Networking Event at the Sarasota Bradenton International Convention Center. This event included members of The Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce, Manatee Chamber of Commerce and the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce.
When we got there, about an hour into the 3 hour event, the parking lot was full and there was lots of activity inside. I’m not sure how many were in attendance, but I expect there were well over 1,000.
QR Code Scavenger Hunt
Now that I’m a QR Diva, the QR Code Scavenger Hunt was what got my attention. When we checked in at the entrance, we were given a QR code to scan. We scanned that code and it registered us so that any of the other codes we scanned for the event were considered entries for various prizes which were given away at the end of the evening.
This Real Estate Company is Using QR Codes
What really excited me is that the QR code opportunity is wide open! Why do I say that? It’s because there were over 130 booths set up at that event and although I’m sure I didn’t get to them all, I did get to the majority of them. Of all the booths I attended, I only came across 3 who had QR codes on their marketing materials and of the 3, only 1 had their QR code directed to a mobile landing page. I’ll be posting more on just why mobile landing pages are an important part of QR code marketing.
QR Codes are Relatively New to North America
One woman I spoke with has known about QR codes for four years! That amazes me since I just learned about them this year and I don’t recall noticing them prior to learning what they were. Even though the codes are abundant in other parts of the world, I’m glad I’m in the US where they are just beginning to be used and noticed. We are at the tip of the iceberg in regards to the QR code opportunity in North America!
