Perhaps you are like me and you have been seeing these funny looking barcodes everywhere and giving them a WTF? These barcodes are QR codes, which smart phones can scan with their built-in camera and it will take them to a website of your choice or even put your contact info into a phone automatically, depending on how you set up your QR code. These codes present many cool ways to promote your music:
- Make one that you hang up at your merch booth where you link a place where fans can get more info on your group.
- If you know HTML you can make a web landing page where you can trade fans their email address for free tracks.
- You can put this on promotional posters and flyers so that fans can preview tracks from the groups playing a show.
