What are QR Codes?
QR codes (Quick Response codes) are like barcodes, except they can store much more data, including downloadable content.They were first developed in Japan and became popular in the industrial sector as high-speed tracking and scanning tools. As more and more people began using smartphones and other mobile devices, QR codes entered the world of marketing.
QR codes can be read by just about any camera-equipped mobile device with a QR Code reader application. Basic QR code reader applications are usually free and easily downloaded.
How It Works
popdecal.com now offers an easy way for you to generate a QR code and upload it onto any sticker you’d like. From our QR code page, you simply select the type of QR code you want to generate, fill out the relevant information, and upload it to your sticker. For optimal readability, we recommend dimensions of at least ½” x ½” for QR codes.
You can create several different kinds of QR codes, depending on your needs. It’s good to keep in mind that, generally speaking, the most effective QR codes are ones that offer value to users.
Your QR code can act as a vCard (a virtual business card) that inputs your contact information into the “contacts” database of the user’s phone. It can contain simple URL information that sends the user to a designated web page. It can contain simple information about discounts, sales, sweepstakes, or product or location information. It can enable customers to download an application or request a PayPal payment from the person scanning it. You can even set up SMS text messaging through a QR code to allow customers to sign up for contests, deals, and coupons or communicate with your customer service representatives.
Consumers are becoming increasingly open to scanning QR codes, so now is the time to start exploring their marketing potential at your company.
