What is a Qrcode and why should I care?

Posted by:

It’s not really a big mystery, qrcodes are just like the barcodes that are scanned at grocery stores, except they can hold a lot more information.
You’ve probably seen them at the home depot and other places. They often have intricate patterns and sometimes contain a picture, logo or something.

The exciting thing about qrcodes is that you can imbed all kinds of information in them:

  • Phone number
  • Email
  • Website
  • Facebook Page
  • etc.

Practical Usage
When you think about qrcodes marketing possibilities might come to mind. There are numerous ways to utilize the technology. But marketing isn’t the only way you could use a qrcode, here are some examples:
On the back of business cards – a person could scan your card and instantly call your phone, or visit your facebook page.
On brochures, invitations, even car magnets.
They can even drive traffic to a mobile website, think of the kinds of things you could do with that:

  • Bridal website
  • Any Event
  • Real estate listings
  • Cars for sale

I’m sure you can come up with even more ideas.
