QR codes are extremely easy to create and highly flexible. When scanned with a smartphone, QR codes redirect the user to any web page, form, or download. There are several ways to leverage this technology with your print:
Point of Sale: Include a QR code near registers that links to an email sign up form. This decreases your cashier line wait times, provides better quality data and can help drive additional online purchases. Create a mobile friendly sign-up form or test your current form to make sure it displays and functions properly.
Store Signage: Drive more product purchase with QR codes that link to expanded product descriptions, reviews, and more.
Anything Printed: Consider using QR codes on anything from event banners to your business cards. The codes can link to your call center, sign up forms, and more. Sample below.
