If you haven’t started using QR Codes then you should be. They are super easy to create and a great way to engage your customers and prospects.
What are QR Codes:
QR is short for Quick Response.
They were originally developed in Japan, and are now becoming increasingly popular in all countries.
They are used to take a piece of information displayed in 2d barcode image and put it in to your cell phone.
Once you know what these little images are you will start to see QR Codes in magazine adverts, on a billboards, a web pages, and some people are even using t-shirts, hats and mouse pads as ways of using these images.
Once a QR Code has been scanned into your cell phone, it will activate certain functions on your cell phone depending on what information is stored in the QR Code.
QR Codes are designed to give contact details about a business, display a map showing the location of the business, web pages along with information about the website and discount coupons to attract more clientelle.
QR Codes can store much more information than a traditional bar code, and the real key to their use and adoption is that they can been read by all smartphones, making them easily accessible to the general public.

How Do People Read QR Codes:
