Bridge the gap!
QR Codes are a great way to help bridge the gap between print and online media. You put them on offline print, and they take you to online pages. Say you’re looking through a magazine and see an advertisement for a web designer. At the bottom of the ad there is a QR code that says, “scan the code to find our store". This just make your website attract twice as many visitors!
Creates ExcitementPeople want to find out what extra benefits they can get by scanning a code, almost like a mystery. If you’re advertising food, you could write something like, “Scan the QR code - Get 10% OFF”. You can target to a survey program and give 10% benefit to the customer which they will appreciate.
You can create codes that are linked to your “like” button on your business’s Facebook page! If people passing by see the code, they don’t have to remember to go back and “like” you when they get home. You could be building your following instantly! You can also print it on your product packaging to follow your business on Instagram. Your customer doesn't even have to type “Scan and its DONE,” this could be a great way to build your customer base.
