You’ve seen them all, haven’t you? QR codes on billboards beside highways. QR codes on posters close to the floor so no one can really scan them. QR codes linking to Flash videos that don’t play on mobile phones. QR codes on posters deep below the ground in metro stations. Well, it doesn’t need to be like that – your QR code marketing campaign can and should (!) be driving meaningful ROI!

An update from last weeks South by Southwest (SXSW 2013) interactive, or spring break for geeks, as Dennis Crowley, Co-founder of Foursquare described it in his Keynote:
SXSW is were you experience the future for a couple days, then you go home and live in the present.
For the Interative part of SXSW 2013, more than 25.000 marketers, entrepreneurs, engineers and content creators participate. And because startup darlings such as Twitter and Foursquare had their first mover traction because of the tech savvy audience, SXSW is for many startups the place of which tech startups push hard to get the attention of the crowd.

By the end of 2012 the proportion of emails opened on smartphones and tablets has reached 41% and is on a fast track to surpass desktop as the preferred platform to read email.
In one of the recent reports from Econsultancy, numbers show that in the second half of 2012 29% of users chose smartphones and 12% of users chose tablets as their preferred platform to open emails.
If we compare this with the numbers from the first half of 2012, the numbers reveal a rapid growth. Emails opened by smartphones have grown by 11,5% and tablets by 9%.

Supported by the fact that 90% of consumers move between several devices to accomplish a task (via The New Multi-screen World) Google has launched “enhanced campaigns” in AdWords following a growing trend in marketing communication and the core concept behind Splitters targeting technology. Context aware targeting is slowly but surely becoming a must for every modern marketer.
In short, AdWords enhanced campaigns enable you to target consumers based on their context like location, time of day and device type – besides the normal search terms and page content. Splitter offers similar functionality for your call-to-action based marketing.
