Why You Should Use QR Codes
It’s only a matter of time before everyone is using QR codes for personal use. There are several reasons why. QR codes are a way to electronically communicate in marketing. Marketers can track use of QR codes and how often they are actually used for buying and discount codes.
A poster for large companies can gain a lot of feedback but the same can be said for small businesses. So what about the people who want it for personal use and not just for potential money earned? People in business should be using these codes if they aren’t already.
First of all, you can generate your own code. It’s easy and fast and free, the big three that people search for. Yes you can use this to promote your own products but use it to promote yourself. QR codes interest people and if you make it interactive that means you will be memorable. Sure, posters and ads can help build a wide audience but test out a QR code on your own circle.
So, how do you use a QR code for personal use? That’s simply enough, you can use it however you want to. You can have a QR code link to your homepage or link to your e-mail. If you are a musician you can put a QR code on some flyers around your town and when people scan it they are brought to your youtube.com page where they can now view videos of you signing.
For people that are up and coming artists you can showcase your work within the QR code to generate interest. When it is scanned it can be linked to a site that your work is being featured in. What’s even more is that QR codes can be shared so you and your work are being prompted over and over again by people sharing your QR code link. It’s like word of mouth but much more interactive and innovative. QR codes are here to stay and help us stride into the furture of social networking.
