Marketing the Flat Earth Truth
There’s a new way to get the flat earth truth out – or ANY truth for that matter. This has been used by businesses for about 10 years now, but hasn’t been applied to the truth movement. In fact, it wasn’t until 2010 before the US started using QR codes in advertising. That method is by using QR codes.
“What are QR codes?”
Glad you asked. For those who don’t know about QR codes, it’s basically a bar code that you see on just about every packaged product but it’s used a different way.
People who have iPhones and a QR code app, can scan the code. What this does is, it immediately brings up the website that it’s attached to. Thus, if a code is made to any particular page of the website, it will go there. You can make a code to just a simple message and people will read that message instead.
Example of QR Code Use
In the past, if you wanted to reach people with flyers you have to print them up. If you want to reach 1000 people, you’d need 1,000 flyers – which will cost a lot of money. Now, with one flyer in a shop window with a QR code on it, a person with an iPhone can just scan it read your whole website. This enables people to get much more information than what can be printed on a flyer. And, of course, with the link now on their phone, they don’t even need a flyer. As you know, with today’s technology, you can print just one flyer off. Whereas in the past, you had to pay for a designer, take it to the printer and he would charge you a minimum of, say, 100 flyers. Now, all of that has changed.
Sure, not everyone has an iPhone but there is no system out there that will satisfy everyone. Each year that goes by there are millions of more people who buy an iPhone for the first time. Getting a QR code app is free, so there is no cost in that.
The example of a QR code you see here is one that will take people to Christian Flat Earth Ministry.org
I Need Your Help
I can’t get the truth out alone, you are just as important in reaching people with God’s truth. The way you can do it is by getting some flyers out that gives people a reason to scan it and to learn more. This can be done with the printing of one simple flyer and put in a shop window – with the owner’s permission, of course.
I’m trying to make this as easy for you to do it, so kindly read along…
First, here is a QR code to this website. You can copy it, put it on a flyer of your choice and pint it out. This can be done on something as small as a business card. You can hand them out, you can leave them on a counter or you can put it on a public notice board that has other business cards.
Now, if you’d like a QR code to another website and you don’t know how to make it, just send off the web address to me and I’ll make it for you – no charge. Free. Then, I’ll email it back to you.
If you’d like a flyer made up and have some ideas as to what picture and text you’d like. If you’d like this in the size of a business card – with or without a QR code, send it off to me and I’ll design one. Again, FREE. Then, all you have to do is print it off and give it out to people whom you think would like it. I don’t know how long I can do it for free, as it depends on the response I get. Of course, if you know how to do all this yourself, then go ahead and start working on it.
Here, you’ll see a copy of a business card that I made up just yesterday (April 14). This is without the QR code but one can be added. If you’d like another design, let me know.
I can design a flyer in the following formats: A-5, A-4, post card size, business card. Also, there is what is called a “rack” size that is normally found on check out counters.
I have other ideas of getting out the flat earth truth (and all truth) and will write about that in future articles, so stay tuned.
QR Codes And Your Business
Now, some of you may have your own business. If you do, I recommend that you watch this short video, as it shows you all the ways that a QR code can be used. You may be inspired and discover a creative way of getting Bible truth out, too, by using one of these methods.
Give a Reason to Scan
There are many businesses that use QR codes but don’t know how to market it. All they do is slap on a QR code on some flyer – which doesn’t get their attention in the first place – and expect people to scan it. What you have to do to reach people with the flat earth news, for example, is give them an incentive to scan it in the first place! I recommend that you put on your flyer words to the effect, “Get a free book on the flat earth facts – scan the QR code!” Then, with the QR code to the page where there is a free book on this site, they would, in effect, have their free book/booklet. As you know, there are a number of flat earth booklets on this website for people to read.
By telling people they’ll get a free book, it will make them want to scan it to read more. If you have a business, why not offer a 10% discount for those who scan your business flyer? In short, an incentive has to be offered to the people in order to scan your flyer.
With this information, I hope you reach people in your town, in your own way, about re-thinking the earth in which they live. When people come to accept the flat earth truth, they will also learn that Heaven, and Yahweh, God, is directly over head and not 1 billion light years away. Then, prayerfully, these people will behave more in a Christian manner.
