QR Code? What the heck is a QR Code?

Posted by on Mar 24, 2011 in Small Business | 0 comments

I can’t seem to get QR Codes out of my head recently. Everywhere I look I see a new place that I could and probably should put one of these beautiful, self-contained, advertising wonders. I could put them on my brochures, my business cards, my coffee cups, or even make golf shirts with a QR Code as the logo. Here’s my problem: How many of my clients actually know what a QR Code is? How many of my potential clients know what a QR Code is? How many people reading this article even know what a QR Code is? I can at least do something about the...

I was talking to a local small business owner the other day, he just happens to be the same small business owner that was referenced in the “Why Backup?” article.

Anyhow, I was talking to the yet-to-be-named small business owner the other day and another question came up that I had to really put...

I was recently speaking to a small business owner in the area and the subject of Nightly Backups came up. I was explaining to him how I am looking to partner with an Online Backup Provider so that I can offer that as a service to my clients when he asked me a question that I wasn’t expecting: “Why do I even need a Backup?” I was taken aback.
