During this slide, you would talk about the beginning part of your book… where you have stories about how your wife, kids, Dad, etc. react to different medias.
Let’s talk for a second about one of the ways that Marketing and Communications has changed…. Certainly, it’s the web. Whether it’s our corporate website, social media pages, Google… these sites have changed everything we do. The way we search, the way we consume information, the way we communicate, the way we shop.
Let’s take a quick look at how one online marketing channel has changed the game…. Facebook
Let’s talk bit now about hardware is changing the worlds of marketing and communications…..The iPad… the iPhone… Kindle… Android devices… Windows Phones… and more.
With that better hardware, and the user experience that it provides, people are developing and then using apps that allow them to change the way they communicate and consume information.Flipboard is an iPad App that changes how you can consume articles from magazines, newspapers, tweets, Facebook posts, and more.

First, what does it stand for?Quick Response… So.. On the most basic level – think of it this way. Your mobile audience can save time by scanning the QR Code to go to your website rather than remembering and typing in the URL.Yes, it’s a call to action that can help increase response rates… strike while he iron is hot.
There are a number of FREE applications that allow you to scan QR Codes.They are different between phones.Discuss favorite ones for iPhone, Android, Blackberry.To get one, you simply need to go to your app store, download the app. You can even do it now , if you’d like..
We are seeing a huge interest in qr Codes when it comes to real estate.Here’s a picture of how one is being used on a rider.Also, flyers, mailers, newsletters, other signs…
QR Codes used by a printer to make their open house more fun, exciting.. If people scanned the code o nthis sign, it took them to a landing page. There was logic on the page to randomly display a picture of a rockstar… kinda fun.(of course, when the men scanned a code and saw Courtney Love, and the ladies scanned a code and saw Elton John, their reactions were priceless!)
Here is one of my favorite examples. At the Rochester Jazz Festival, people could scan these huge QR Codes to download a guide to the festival on their smartphones.
Now a huge reason and benefit of using QR Codes is the measurement and tracking! - You can start clearly measuring how effective your print ads are.. Your postcards… your signs..
Here is an example of another type of interactive barcode…. ScanTag. In a case like this, people simply take a picture of the special code. They send it via text message, and then they receive additional information from the company via text.
