Realtree Augments Marketing Strategy with NeoMedia’s Mobile Barcodes
First outdoor company to implement mobile barcodes to drive consumer engagement
Columbus, GA, 2nd March, 2011 – Realtree® today announced it will use mobile barcode scanning technology, supplied by NeoMedia Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: NEOM.OB), to bring an element of interactivity to tradeshow collateral and drive traffic to its new range of mobile applications for the hunting community.
The Realtree mobile barcodes on print ads, publications, packaging, billboards, retail displays, broadcast media, or any other medium, once scanned, will link to the Realtree application in the appropriate mobile app store.
This data, when scanned by barcode reader software on a mobile phone, will enable the user to connect directly to mobile web content as if a URL had been typed into the internet browser on a mobile device. This means that anything bearing a mobile barcode can be brought to life by providing immediate access to further product information, applications and other multimedia content – simply by one click.
“Realtree sees mobile as a key to our mobile barcode solution, and NeoMedia provides an ideal way for us to include a mobile call to action in our printed and digital materials, supply customers with more information 'on the go', and highlight our focus on mobile applications,” said Ray Lynch, Realtree VP of Marketing. “By bringing QR codes to our campaigns we are creating a simple and convenient way for our customers to interact with us.”
Laura Marriott, NeoMedia CEO, said, “As consumers worldwide increasingly rely on their mobile handsets for information, there is an opportunity for brands to engage and interact on a one-to-one basis with their customers. By integrating mobile barcodes into their marketing campaigns, Realtree is enabling its customers to participate in an interactive, multimedia experience that helps create a connection based on relevance and value.”
All mobile phones with camera functionality can be transformed into a mobile barcode reader simply by downloading a universal software application. Some phones may also come pre-installed with software that can read mobile barcodes. In order to download NeoMedia’s universal reader, NeoReader™, follow these simple steps:
- Go to get.neoreader.com on your mobile phone OR
- Access the ‘app store’ on your mobile device and search for ‘NeoReader’.
