2D Barcodes: Suggestions for Personal Marketing

The point of the bar code is to store lots of information or a URL that is too long for someone to be expected to remember or type out. So, how can you take advantage of these uses? 

1. Making your resume more interactive
- You can direct people to your LinkedIn profile which should contain your photo, links to your website, and a detailed history of your work experience/education.
- It can also direct people to examples of your work if you are a graphic designer or artist.

2.Making your business cards more interactive
- You can link your business card to your resume or LinkedIn profile to maximize your networking.
- The bar code could simply important your contact info to someone's contact list to help streamline keeping your info handy.

3. Video Link
- This one is more tricky, but if you are an actor or director or someone expected to have videos this would be a great way to link to a sample of your work.

Any other ideas for personal marketing with 2D Barcodes... share in the comments! Just remember, make it worth it for someone to scan!

Updated Links and Salvador Dali

I recently updated my "For Your Entertainment" links on the right and I would like to call attention a new addition:

I've been looking for a stock photo website like this for awhile so I'm happy to finally stumble upon this gem. They have all sorts of freebies- like a monthly free font, screen savers, free photos, and illustrations. Love! 

They also have what is probably the biggest and most enjoyable time waste ever... Clockbusters. 

It's a movie quiz using stock photos found through their website. It was fun to play plus a totally awesome marketing ploy since I've signed up and told my friends about So A+ for them. As for my movie guessing skills, I earned a 45 and 42 for my first pass on each of the games respectively.

There were some on the sequel version of the game that I just could not get. Like what movie is described by a kid watching TV, a cross, and spooky tree? What about a guy screaming, an elf kid, and beetle on someone's ear?

Now you are probably asking yourself what this has to do with Salvador Dali. Well, I did spot a lovely picture of him earlier on The Chive so I thought I would leave it here to pretty up this post. Dali is my fav so I could not resist. Maybe I'll hunt down eyeball video he made. It would definitely stump you on Clockbusters...

Emmy Noms are IN

I love the Emmy's. It feels like my best friends are the ones getting the awards. At the Oscars, it's all the popular kids.

Aside from the actors, hosts, and T.V. shows winning awards- everyone's favorite commercials are also up for the big prize. So I present to you, the emmy nominated commercials, videos and all. =)
