Do you have a QR code scanner of choice? Do you have a QR code scanner at all? What about creating them? If you don't use QRcodes what about link shorteners like bit.ly? For the leap of uber geekery, where do you stand on augmented reality?
I am always looking to optomise and declutter, part of that is not acquiring more.
Heading to FutureFest on Sunday my thoughts turn to packing and preparing to be present. Business cards are a staple, but if my card collection and networking experience is anything to go by I tend to exchange tweets, exchange email via DM (direct message) and meet for coffee if a work collaboration is really on the cards.
I do like cards and have quite a collection! I tend to attend events in many capacities so getting a one size fits all card is always problematic.
I do meet people who are far more interested in the projects I've worked on and supported rather than me so I used to carry a few project packs or booklets in a folder.
Now I carry a key ring. (see picture above) I like to share and distribute the project findings, especially in same sector conferences.
On the digital key ring are the following
The TLOEOLT - The League of Extraordinary Online Talent - Brochure on Scribd
@pcmcreative - @PhilCampbell - @DanielRoseArt ... The Team
The Great thing with these is I can update the brochures, even change the links at not extra cost.
There is also a geo-location feature that enables me to see where the scan was made. This is particularly useful with unique codes on posters or printed materials.
PCM social web assistant program - MONICA brochure on Scribd
This would be brochure number two I'd be carrying around. Its the consultancy service I offer and I tend to be at conferences to represent client projects and not to promote myself. If anyone asks I'm prepared if I have a code that can be scanned. I'm looking for clients with a spirit of tech adventure. It they have a scanner it tells me a lot about their mind set.
The 2014 Audiences Europe PDF case studies to share the Open All Areas audience development research findings resulting from the Creative Europe Grundvig Funded program.
There are 13 reports in this set of PDF's they have been collected on ISSUU in a 'stack'. Access and downloads can be tracked. Data and use stats can only be a good thing?
A QR code makes sharing so much easier!
I also have one with my contact details, including a follow link to Twitter and G+ plus a YouTube video showcasing the Livestream continuity studio, which is part of the Digital Audience Experience I'm working on right now.
I've got a few more QR codes... There is also the event app for Arts and Audiences
created with Bizzabo and a code for the Bizzabo app itself. Only thing I can't have a code for is a QR code reader!
So I wonder if anyone at #FutureFest will have a quick draw QR code reader?
