Amidst exciting news about the world’s first ever QR Code coin launched by Mint in Utrecht, we are speculating if we will see more of such coins and creative use of QR Codes. If nothing at all, it shows how receptive people are about the amazing internet-cum-mobile technology. If you are curious about what the first QR Code coin looks like, what it does, 2d-code UK website has it over here.
Although QR Code is an amazing method for promotions, marketing, sales and all sorts of marketing ploys, it can also be used for our everyday lives. So, here are some ways to grab the technology and turn it into something useful.
Surprise someone with a QR Code – The mystery of what is hidden behind the QR Code is undeniably there. So, imagine if you surprise your loved one with a ‘I love you, will you marry me’ QR Code! If you want to wish someone a happy birthday, simply create a mobile website with tools like www.zinado.com, which is free to use and place your message there. Use it to wish your mother a Happy Mother’s Day, wish your sister a happy birthday or tell someone how much you mean to them with the codes.
Make it easy for others to donate to charitable causes – Are you part of the green movement and wish to help others donate easier? Then explore the possibility of using a QR Code to lead mobile users to a website whereby they can easily and quickly make the donation. At this point in time, we are not sure how mobile-friendly Paypal is, but if it is mobile-friendly, we reckon that you can and should create the QR Code linking it directly to the ‘shopping cart’ page.
Or….you can sing a song about QR Codes…just like Adrian Xavier (who is basically based in Seattle). In the video, Xavier sang his song, ‘QR Code: It’s a Good, Good Thing’ for standing in front of the stall for GreenTribe.us.
