Realtor Shirley holding a MAGIC LAWN SIGN

Here's my friend and colleague, Realtor Shirley Van Scoyk, holding a QRCode-enabled lawn sign.

 

When scanned with a mobile phone, the sign links to a website for a house Shirley is listing.

 

Shirley put the sign up the weekend before a big Civil War reenactment just down the road from the listed house. You know, nerd bait for all the smartphone-carrying grizzled engineers that go to reenactments. "Time to spend all weekend getting rained on in a canvas coat OH WAIT ONE LAST CHANCE to use my 2D barcode scanner!"

 

Then they'll have all weekend to consider, while getting rained on, what a fine and wonderful thing a house is, and how nice it would be to own one.

 

PS: Psst! Hey, Realtors! Want a magic sign for YOUR listings? Contact me!
