Custom QR Codes
QR code stands for quick response code. A QR code is a glorified bar code that companies can use to store information about their company, website or a product. The most common usage of QR codes is to store information about a company such as their corporate address, phone and fax numbers. QR codes can also point you to the company’s website where you can get more information about the company and its products.
QR codes were initially used in Japan and other areas of Asia. The use of QR codes started in the automotive industry. Over the past five years they have made a quick inroad into Europe. QR codes are relatively new in the US and have only been used for the past year or two. Despite being relatively new, savvy companies are realizing that creating a custom QR code for their company is a very cheap but is also very cost effective in reaching their target advertising market. QR codes are now used by companies in all industries.
Reading QR Codes
QR codes are very effective in advertising because they are able to store up to 4,000+ characters in its small form size. QR codes can easily be added to any print advertisement. QR codes have to be read using a QR scanner because the information contained in the QR code is encoded. QR scanners are usually included on most smart phones today or you can download a free QR scanner from Apple app store or the Android marketplace.
If someone comes across your QR code in a print advertisement, they can easily scan it using their smart phone and store the information. The QR scanner uses the camera feature found on smart phones to scan in the information into the smart phone. It is possible to create redirects in the meta data contained in the QR code. If someone scans your QR code that contains your company’s website information, the user will be redirected to the website once they scan the QR code. If you do not do a redirect then the information can be easily accessed at a later date.
