Surfer Does Not Take Chances, Uses dynotag QR Code Smart Tags to Mark His Gear!

As evidenced by his video scrapbook, Don Ledford, a native of Seattle area has been an avid surfer for years.

When it’s calm, he’s on his SUP, when it’s windy, he cracks the Windsurf gear out. When the waves are promising, surfboards are retrieved from the big Sprinter van, which serves as a moving dedicated equipment storage for Ledford.

As much fun as water sports are, the sea (or lake) occasionally claims a toll by claiming equipment such as paddles, gloves, hats, even a surfboard on occasion.

“Given the considerable expense of the equipment and all the accessories, it would be awesome to get them back” says Ledford, who cannot remember the count of all the stuff he has lost over the years.

“Even if someone finds it, they don’t know who to call to come get it” he continued.

That is when tagging his equipment occurred to him. That way, at least when someone finds the missing glove, paddle or board,  they’ll be able to contact Don and arrange for the lost equipment to find its way back home.

However, what to tag the equipment with?

Almost all equipment used in watersports gets exposed to extreme conditions like sun, salt, abrasion. Things either wear off or just get eroded away.

That’s when Don decided to try Dynotag’s “Internet Enabled QR Code Smart Mini Tags”.

Upon receiving them Don activated the tags with his contact information then applied them to his valued equipment, using wowen nylon strings in most cases…

The minitag is easy to secure on the board...

Nice job attaching the tag. Visible yet out of the way…

“I like these little tags have a short web address for my info., as well as the QR Code” says Ledford. “Not everyone has a smartphone that can read QR Codes but pretty much everyone knows how to visit a web address” he added.  Ledford has a whole set of boards for all water sports imaginable, and he has tagged them all!. “It took just a few minutes to do them all” he says. Certainly a worthy investment for the peace of mind.

Nice board, now with a dynotag!
Another nice board with its new dynotag…

 

After several weeks of use, Don is pleased with the tags, which appear to take the abuse well.

We’ll see which one will last longer, the tags or the surfboards.   Stay tuned for an update in a few months!

Dynotag Smart Tag™ QR codes used at Seattle Cultural Festival reveals trends.

Turkfest 2011 is one of a series of cultural events held in the Seattle Center. This year’s event took place on October 15-16 in the Seattle Center House

About 60 dynotags were used for the festival.

For main stage activities held during the two days of the festival, 30 dynotags were printed in poster format, in chronological order, describing each event, such as this one. These sheets were then bound as a poster size (2×3 ft) flip chart of dynotag QR images and simply removed one at a time as the events progressed on the center stage.

Additionally, 60 more 8.5x11inch letter size dynotags were created in “retail” mode, which enables printing of unbounded placeholder dynotags ahead of time – and bind them to a real dynotag later on, as needed. This made it possible to walk around on the show floor, armed with an iPad2 and a stack of pre-printed dynotag sheets such as this one.  We visited booths and festival desks to create purpose specific dynotag sheet right on the spot, typically in less than a minute.

Because owners of dynotags have instant access to usage statistics and individual access records of all their tags, we were able to tally the tag statistics soon after the festival concluded.

The rankings of the top 30 tags are as follows.

The results confirm some common sense expectations as well as revealing interesting characteristics of strategic placement of  dynotags impressions across the show floor.

Not surprisingly, #1 dynotag is the “Events Program”. People had been interested in finding out what show is coming on when  – and we had half a dozen copies of the event program posted near entrances and show floor display panels.

Same with #2  – the dynotag on the event poster had been published before the show so those impressions were collected for a longer time period.

#3 is an interesting one. This dynotag image was posted in the food area outside the Center House building and long lines formed during the peak lunch period. This dynotag was scanned considerably more often than other booths partially it presented the opportunity to scan it while people were waiting in line. Lesson: Placement  of the dynotag image is key.

#4 is a description of the festival event used in the brochures printed prior to the event, so it had a longer time to collect impressions.

#5 Goodies Mediterranean Market had excellent corner booth placement and a large variety of food with free samples, etc. – so they had quite a buzz going throughout the event.

The remaining events tag rankings are in line with expectations, providing a mosaic of the better-received festival shows and booth presentations.

All the tag links shown in the table are genuine addresses for those dynotags – so you can peek into them while reading this document.

Dynotags were well received at the show by a wide demographic of users.  While many smartphone owners were comfortable scanning the dynotag QR images, several others learned about how to use this neat capability on their smartphones.

The vendors exhibiting at the booths were very pleased with the functionality and the ease of deploying a dynotag sheet for their office.  Many vendors took the dynotag sheets to use at their businesses after the festival.

We are expecting to sponsor events like this throughout the country and overseas.

As QR code use continues to boom – we expect event planners and vendors to become more comfortable with using the free Dynotag Smart Tag™ service, giving them flexibility, convenience and eliminating unnecessary material printing costs. Furthermore, real-time dynotag usage data sheds light into what asset placement works and which messages promote  customer interest, helping the dynotag owner to dynamically adjust content to achieve best possible outcome.

With dynotag, applications are limited by your imagination only and there are as many small business use cases as there are personal use cases.

More use cases and templates will be available via help.dynotag.com over time.
