Making Money with QR Codes as a Musician

So I got a new iPhone not long ago and had heard about QR codes. Today I had a bright idea.

I have a gig tomorrow, what can I do different.??

I’m going to create a QR code and link it to my cd’s. Oooooohh Brilliant! So I google QR code creator, or generator and found this one. http://qrcode.kaywa.com/.

I then said to myself, there has got to be a direct link to my music on itunes. and sure enough there was. Easy to find.. http://itunes.apple.com/linkmaker/

So I grabbed my tip jar and printouts and thought of another bright idea!

I have a donation button on my website and thought I could use a QR code for tips as well, using PayPal.

This one was a bit more tricky but I figured it out.

So here is my final thing and tomorrow I put it to the test. I’m playing at a really hip Farmers Market in Franklin TN. So lets see if anyone takes on my 15 minutes of extra work. LETS HOPE SO. 🙂

I will be soon printing out QR code sticker that link back to my site so that people can learn more about guitar lessons.
