Some ideas

Following contexts can make you truly benefit from linking QR Codes to MP3 files:

  • Book trailers
  • Music bands
  • Podcast – Radio stations
  • Tourism – Audio guides
  • Education – Teachers
  • DJ Mixes

Book trailers

QR Code Book Trailer

Book promotions are becoming more innovative and interactive. If you are an author or writer, you may want to give your audience an audio trailer of your latest book.

By adding QR Codes into newspapers, magazines or on your book cover you can play a small audio excerpt to your readers.

Your readers could even download a whole audiobook after scanning a QR Code.

Music bands

QR Code Music Band

If you are a band or musician you can use MP3 QR Codes to promote your music, so your fans can stream your songs directly to their smartphones.

And why not display a large QR Code on stage linking to your Spotify or Soundcloud page?

Podcast – Radio stations

QR Code for Podcasts

Live radio is dead – long live the podcast. If you want to run your own podcast, you don’t need a station nor a license to broadcast your content. Many podcasts became a hit which would not make it to the conventional FM radio. However, promoting a podcast can be a cumbersome task and MP3 QR Codes can help to enlarge your audience.

Postcards, stickers, poster boards, etc. linking to the latest podcast placed at the right place at the right moment can be a powerful resource.

Tourism – Audio guides

QR Code for Audio Guides

Lending, cleaning, recharging, repairing or maintaining headphones or any kind of audio device for tourists visiting your attraction is not necessary anymore.

By placing MP3 QR Codes next to illustrations, artworks or paintings you can provide them with contextual audio information. Moreover, you can play a personalized audio file depending on the language set in the smartphone of the user.

Education – Teachers

QR Code for education

Students are smartphone savvies whether you like it or not. You as a teacher have an unlimited ally in this technology, and it is up to you to have it working on your advantage.

Having the possibility to link your students to any audio file on the internet (music, speech, poetry, etc.) enriches the learning experience to an extent you could not even imagine 5-10 years ago.

DJ Mixes

Put the QR Codes on your record bag, flyers, business card or create stickers with an MP3 QR Code that you give away to your fans in the club so that they can continue listening to your sound even after a long night out.

See DJ Leo Stussy in the Mix for an example, how your MP3 QR Code can perform in action.

    Hi Jordi

    I hope you’re good.

    I want to be able to have people come into a yoga studio and scan a QR code so they can stream an audio recording of a teacher instructing the class they choose to practise. This needs to be a ‘once only’ stream when they come in to the studio, so they pay to use it every time. Is that possible?
