As with the last event Bob Koenigbauer, our group manager, did a great job preparing the venue and activities. As a result, another successful networking event was held.
The opportunity to interact with such an innovative and diverse group is exhilarating. Our shared interest in using social media to enhance business indicates that our group is forward looking and as individuals we are not afraid to use new tools to educate ourselves and others. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.) And yes, we discuss the latest events and technologies that might interest us.
You might recall that I wrote about QR Codes after the last meeting.
Please believe me when I tell you that I am not some crazed QR Code fanatic – honestly! I might be a little evangelical about QR Codes, but not overly so. Right?
At the event…
So, a friend from an advertising agency mentioned that a person who was not named (probably because the friend thought that I would hunt that person down… that’s a joke, folks), claims that the QR Code fad has peaked.
Here’s my response.
After I calmed my self, I was able to explain that just the other night I had seen a QR Code on Herman Cain’s campaign bus. OK. So what if Herman Cain was in the news because of less than favorable allegations? It’s still a QR Code, right?
See? If a presidential candidate’s marketing people think QR Codes are cool, then they ARE cool, right?
What do you think? Are QR Codes dead? Would you put one on the side of your building? In an ad? Why? Or why not?
