Thank you for reading my post about QR-Codes.
Your Tag example on the surfboards also looks very promising, clearly innovative and something a lot of people would benefit from.
What a great way of engaging your staff and the service you provide! There really are so many ways of using QR Codes both for NPO as well as enterprise. You may find this link interesting if you are looking into using QR Codes to engage your staff further:
Superb Facebook page by the way, we are yet to complete ours, all in good time....
Many thanks for your positive comment. I love the idea that someone actually "wore" a Qr Code, could be geeky but I gather from your story that it was rather innovative!
Outsourcing is useful, affordable and effective if, as you point out, you find an individual or agency that can provide the services and quality relevant to you and your business. Wether you go down the route of using cordinated outsourcing websitses such as Elance or oDesk etc or if you sign a contract with a specific local company that's your call as long as you have a structure and process in place which enables you to quality assure the service you use.
Google Panda (Farm update) is a godsend for us bloggers and companies that provide strong content that readers value. On the otherhand finding time (or money!) to spend on one's SEO strategy is difficult at times and this is where outsourcing really does show it's true power.
Many thanks for a thoughtful and provoking post Daren.
Thanks for a great article!
I really like the idea of reading/thinking outside the box and seriously consider cross-pollinating more. How many bloggers can honestly say they read books that are unrelated, as such, to their subject expertise? I try my utmost to buy literature and add RSS feeds that are outside my own professional area and it has worked well so far.
Another idea that also works effectively is to interview experts in their fields and start a dialogue about key topics, not neccessarily your own, and then link to what you are already good at. This is a great way of gaining new focus especially if it's a skills based interview. Of course, choose wisely as if your blog is focusing on QR-Codes you can customize and you discuss flower-arranging then you may be off point slightly : ) .
Again, thanks for a great post.
I couldn't agree more ; ) :
"Word of warning: if you automate your entire campaign particularly Twitter then you will eventually lose your client base. Let's not forget that Social Media is all about engagement and connecting with people. "
