ScanLife Social Network Contest

by david

You think you have a loyal group of friends?  You think you're full of great ideas?  Well, you'll find out soon enough in the ScanLife Social Network Contest!

Last time we asked you to upload your most creative ways to use 2D codes.  This time, it's all about getting lots and lots of scans. Here's how it will work:
  1. Create a ScanLife 2D code (QR, Datamatrix, EZcode) from a ScanLife Personal account.  It's free to create an account if you don't have one already and you can change the code content whenever you want without changing the image.   The code must be created from ScanLife.
  2. Link your code to whatever you want. Pick something that all of your friends are going to want to scan - a video, some fun pics, a great joke.  Be creative, but keep it clean!!
  3. Publish your code wide and far - Facebook, Twitter, airplane banners - whatever you think is going to get your code scanned.
  4. The person with the most unique scans at the end of the contest wins!

What will you win?  With the holidays coming up, we figured we would give you $500 in the form of an Amex Gift Card.  Spend it any way you want!

Get started now by creating your code, and let's see how many people scan your code... Good Luck!! Tips & Help:
  • Don't know what we're talking about, or how to create one of these codes?  Click here to watch a video.
  • Don't forget to tell your friends how to scan one of these codes!  They can download the ScanLife app for hundreds of different phones at from the phone, or their app store.  Or they can use a different QR Code scanner.
  • Make sure the code is large enough to scan.  1" wide is recommended.
