Nowadays many people are realizing the importance of a personal brand. But it’s not easy to convince people to start a blog and promote themselves on social media. This is why a personal brand QR code helps you gain visitors and followers.
Good first impression
When we meet new people, our first impression is very important. As the saying goes, we only have one chance to make a good first impression. When building a personal brand, people try to look nice and stand out from the crowd. We do our best to make the person you meet remember us. Imagine you are at a meetup event and people are talking and busy networking. Most people are greeting others the same way but only you are using a new, creative way to be unique. By not using a paper business card, you can send your contact to them faster and easier in a flash. That person will likely remember you. This is called “WhatZit” method.
