What the Heck Are QR Codes?
A QR Code (or Quick Response Code) is a two dimensional code (or series of boxes) that, when scanned by an app on your smartphone, does something cool, really quickly. Hence the QR or quick response code. They’re hip, cool and fun. What’s even better about them is they are a creative way to get potential customers physically engaged in your marketing efforts. QR Codes have multiple applications for your marketing plan. What can QR Codes do?
- Send a pre-formatted text message that asks if they want to receive your specials via text message in the future
- Dial a phone number that goes straight to your sales hotline (or anywhere else)
- Add your contact info to the scanner’s contacts
- Visit a mobile version of your website without the customer typing anything
- Give out your Wifi password
- Add your Big Sale Event to the smartphone’s calendar
- Show your store’s location on Google maps
- Send a pre-formatted email asking to be enrolled in your mailing list
- Gather customer feedback using text messages
