QR Codes and why YOU should be using them!

It’s a QR Code! And it looks like this

 QR Codes stand for “Quick response” codes. They allow consumers with a smart phone to, instantly; learn more about your product, business or service.

How do QR codes work?

QR codes are 2d barcodes that can be decoded using your smart phone with a QR code reader.

In order to be able to access information from a QR code, you need 2 things:

1. A smart phone that has a camera and internet capability

2. A QR code reader*

* Many new smart phones will already come equipped with a QR code reader. If your smart phone does not have a reader already installed, free QR code readers can be downloaded from your app. store.

Who is using QR codes?

22% of Fortune 50 companies are using QR codes.

Just the other day, I saw QR codes in use in Home Depot’s garden section. Each grow your own herb/vegetable plant had a QR code listed next to the name of the plant. It allowed you to scan it for more information on how to grow and maintain your plant-in what conditions, season, etc.

Why do QR codes work?

QR codes engage consumers and provide an increased level of interaction.

Interaction and engagement increases response rates and enhances the customer experience.
