There are lots of ways you can promote yourself, but now you can do it in a fabulously unique way. As the Editor in Chief of advicesisters.com, I was offered a tee shirt with a QR code that is unique to whatever url I wanted to link it to. This tee shirt is just so scandalous!
The photo below leads to the Star Gifts Web Site, but scroll down the page some more, and you’ll find another photo with a different QR code. Can anyone resist scanning it to find out where it leads ? I seriously doubt it!
The women’s version is 100% cotton, with a slim profile, in either black and white or red and white, The men’s version also is available in black or red . We think it has so many possibilities!
Are you single but you really have trouble approaching someone to start a conversation? One of the easiest ways to draw people to you is with something visual that is so eye-catching they can’t resist asking “what is it?” Let this QR code tee do the opening lines for you without saying a word (“scan me” works, too). A tee like this definitely sparks interest and conversation.
Single men and women can use these to make mixing and mingling more fun. The tee is more than just a unique visual (the black and white is classic, but the RED version might work even better for a single woman). When scanned with a QR code reader, the QR code on your tee shirt takes the user to a Twitter, online dating site, Facebook or other social or web site link where they can learn more about you. Obviously, you’ll want to stay safe and sensible – don’t link anywhere with a LOT of personal information — it’s just a way to get potential dates to get some way to contact you and a few juicy details that make them want to know more.
Doing this is not just a clever way to get attention, it beats writing down information on the back of a cocktail napkin or exchanging cards that might get lost. Once the QR code is on someone’s phone, they can go back to that url and find you again. You’re sure to get “points” for doing something special.
If you’re not single, imagine giving the tee to someone very special, with the code linking to a special message, a poem, a link to a song, just for him or her? You could also order one of these tees with a link to a breakup message, although I’m not sure your ex would wear the shirt again (lol)! I can also imagine this as an innovative way to promote a special event, such as a wedding, or a family reunion…just to name two possibilities.
There are less romantic uses as well. You can easily also promote your business (or your band, non-profit, dog walking service, or whatever it is that you want to promote) as I have done with our review QR code sample for my lifestyles web site: advicesisters.com. Feel free to try the code! Distributing or selling these tees could bring you a lot of business. Face it, a QR code begs for you to click it. On a tee shirt, it’s even more enticing.
Star Gifts offers a wide variety of “celebrity” gift ideas that are exclusive to StarGifts.com and most allow you to add your own name and message in an an exact, official copy of your chosen star’s own handwriting! Choose from stage, screen, or sports, or even make yourself the star. But the item we really liked the most is the QR code tee, which you can still order in time to give as a gift for Valentines Day if a link to a special message is on your to do list.
