The Good, The Bad & The Ugly QR Code for the February 22nd NonProfit Commons Meeting

This Friday, February 22nd, Nonprofit Commons is happy to feature web pioneer Aliza Sherman (Cybergrrl Oh) who will take us on an interactive exploration of QR code marketing. QR Codes can be a compelling and effective marketing tool when used thoughtfully and integrated carefully into a campaign. Nonprofits can benefit from incorporating QR codes appropriately into marketing collateral and communications flow, especially to bridge offline with online actions. Learn some of the best tools for generating and managing your QR code efforts and see some examples of QR codes, both effective and ineffective ones. 



Aliza Sherman is a Web pioneer with a mission to empower people through technology. She is a digital marketing strategist who has been online since 1987 and consulting clients about the Internet since 1992. She speaks around the world and writes about online, social media, and mobile marketing, as well as tech and business issues specific to women.

In 2009, Fast Company named her one of the “Most Powerful Women in Technology.”
