OK so I’ve done a post already on Alternate Takes about my penchant for Quick Response (QR) codes. I’m using them frequently in the advertising I organise in my day job. So much so it would seem that it is being noticed by techy types & their associated businesses.
I’m getting a few approaches by proactive types championing how their business will advance what I’m doing and/or how we could work together for mutual benefit…yada yada. That’s fine.
However today I received a quite delightful QR cold call (try saying that five times fast) via one of our retail stores. It was a simple trawl for business & we were just one of the corporate fish netted in their broadbrush spruiking. However I must admit that as I forced myself to look thru the prop (as you do) I did pause at the above slide.
QR codes are becoming more common and even appear in newspapers
Well strike me down with the sports section. Really?!! Sweet baby Jesus & the orphans who would have thought that. Well OK perhaps that’s not completely accurate. You see both unfortunately – and reasonably awkwardly – the newspaper advertising & QR code they use to evidence this ground-breaking information is actually my ad. Ha ha
Oh dear! What are the chances, small world hey
