A QR (Quick Response) code is a two-dimensional image that can be scanned by a smartphone or other camera equipped digital devices, and will automatically direct you to a variety of types of information.
You may have seen them on catalogs, food packaging and ads in the past and never given them a second notice.
QR codes have been around since 1994 in Japan and they are being used more broadly in advertising with the increase of smartphone usage. More consumers are accessing the web through their mobile devices and QR codes are a great way to quickly get your content to the viewer.
Why the heck do I need a QR Code?
Picture your ad in a magazine and someone sitting in a waiting room is passing the time by flipping through it and sees your awesome ad, designed by WCS of course. At the bottom of the ad they see your long URL directing them to your site. They may love the ad, of course, and love the product you are selling but they don’t want to write it down. They may also want to quickly share it with their friends and family. How can they do that? They can do that all and more with the aid of a small QR code.
There are very few limits to the usage of QR codes so it all comes down to how you apply it and a custom QR code is a great way to attract interest. From linking to your homepage or a specific page on your website, to giving someone turn-by-turn directions to your stores location through Google maps.
But is that not what URL’s are for? Yes, but URL’s can be long and easily forgotten.
All the user needs to do is pull out their smartphone, open the QR Code reader app and scan the code. From there they can share it with their social media site of choice (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.), email it, or text message it to others in a matter of minutes. In that short time your little ad with its nifty QR code has spread the word of your awesome product to millions of other potential clients.
