QR Codes

What are QR codes and how can they help your business?

Quick Response codes (QR codes) are a machine-readable code consisting of an array of black and white squares, typically used for storing URLs or other information for reading by the camera on a smartphone

QR Codes

If you’re not yet familiar with QR codes, they’re similar to the barcodes used by retailers to track inventory and price products at the point of sale. The key difference between the two is the amount of data they can hold or share. Go ahead and scan the QR code below to see what happens:

When you scan or read a QR code with your iPhone, Android or other camera-enabled Smartphone, you can link to digital content on the web; activate a number of phone functions including email, IM and SMS; and connect the mobile device to a web browser.

Any of these desired functions are easily achieved by properly creating your QR code.  It’s a simple process of entering the appropriate data into the QR code generator, described below, and it all takes just a few minutes.

The ability of QR codes to connect people with each other and to multimedia digital content is very useful for businesses and consumers alike. Although, it would be a big mistake if you only used QR codes as a means for your mobile marketing strategy.

How QR Codes Work

QR code Generators – There are a number of sites for generating QR codes and they’re all free.  An Internet search for QR code generator will offer many choices.

QR code Readers – QR code readers can be an app that you download on your smartphone. There are many complex QR code readers, but we would recommend download a basic one such as the Android QR Reader which will do just fine. The way it works is that you need to first access the QR app before you can actually scan any QR code. Once you access the app, it’s as simple as point and scan; then wait for the mysteries that lay beyond.
