How to create QR Click to Tweets to improve social media for your event.
In early 2011 I cobbled together two products to create a unique QR-Click To Tweet code for each participating Innovator to have at their display. The scanned QR code launched unique pre-loaded Tweet with a shout out for that Innovator.
After a couple of tests I enlisted the help of Nirmal Parikh of Digital Wavefront, Dag Holmboe of Klurig Analytics, Jim Henderson of VizConnect and Bobbie Carlton of Mass Innovation Nights. In one short conference call we figured a simple refinement of my cobbled project to generate QR codes to produce better analytics. Few of us knew
that was possible. Props to Nirmal!

  • QR codes for events How to create QR Click to Tweets to improve social media for your event. @timstansky October 2011
    • Mass Innovation Nights @massinno is a monthly Launch gathering where ten new products display to a couple hundred people at various locations around Boston including the IBM Innovation Center and Microsoft New England Research and Development (NERD) Center.
    • These Launch gatherings are the culmination of a common ballot on which companies, friends, family, fans and customers vote over four weeks for the participating Launch Innovators to win one of four 5 minute presentation slots to the crowd. There’s a lot of collective social media in the voting process leading up to the event and a big blast of it on-site.
    • In early 2011 I cobbled together two products to create a unique QR-Click To Tweet code for each participating Innovator to have at their display. The scanned QR code launched unique pre-loaded Tweet with a shout out for that Innovator.
    • After a couple of tests I enlisted the help of Nirmal Parikh of Digital Wavefront, Dag Holmboe of Klurig Analytics, Jim Henderson of VizConnect and Bobbie Carlton of Mass Innovation Nights. In one short conference call we figured a simple refinement of my cobbled project to generate QR codes to produce better analytics. Few of us knew that was possible. Props to Nirmal!
    • The use of bit.ly-generated QR codes will allow us to analyze the Tweets, collective social media and give us a baseline to figure out how else we can optimize social media exposure for Innovators who launch products at Mass Innovation Nights.
