Don't know if some of you guys on this board know or use QR codes
but they are becoming a big marketing item. All of the Gadget Geeks
with Smartphones won't be able to pass a code without scanning it.
Use these codes to direct customers to your website, Facebook, offer
items on sale & other cleaning offers. You will see these codes
in your trade magazines, people are putting them on their shirts,
business cards, lawn signs. These codes are big in Florida.
So any smartphone freaks on here click this code & see where it takes you.

QR Code

To make your codes just go to this page.

I still haven't figured out a good way to use this in my marketing but I have them and I have the app on my phone.

You can have them printed on a shirt, magnet for your van, business card
invoices and any place you can think of. What do you want your customers to know about your company or how to contact you or offer sales specials to them. You can just put in your phone number, facebook page, website, four square page. Do you get the ICS cleaning book? There is a code on page 4 & 5.

Here is another marketing tool for you and anyone else
if they read this page. Put your business on
You can tell people about your business, have your customers "Check-In"
at your square if they have a smartphone. They can leave comments
and help with rankings on the net. Foursquare will send you a small
plastic that you can put in your office window.

Here is a sample of my square. My people up here in NY will never check in
cause they just aren't up with the modern times. I'll get check-ins when I leave here.
