Would you like to use QR codes for marketing? 

QR codes are an interesting and under-utilized marketing tool that has a lot of potential for businesses of all sizes. By using QR codes, you can do the following: 

  • Target a specific audience, 
  • Track your market's engagement with a discount, 
  • Make discounts easy to share,
  • Stand out in social media noise, and 
  • Integrate QR codes into signs, ads, and packaging.

Here are the benefits of using QR codes for marketing:

Marketers can target a specific audience

QR codes for marketing are linked to a landing page with the demographic of the marketer's choosing. This means that any particular QR code can direct people to different pages based on their age, gender, and interests.

Marketers can track their market's engagement with the discount

Some QR codes can be linked to a landing page with a form that the  marketing team can use to see exactly how many sales came from each QR code and what demographic used it.

Even without a special landing page or tools, you can track the metrics of your QR code using our QR code analytics. This feature is available to our paid subscribers only.

QR codes make discounts easy to share

QR codes bridge the gap between traditional marketing materials and online content. This ability of QR codes allows you to expand your online marketing campaign. You can easily share your discounts even with your physical marketing materials like flyers and posters. 

QR codes give marketers a way to stand out in social media 

QR codes are an essential tool in social media that can help marketers stand out from the competition. For instance, some of them are eye-pleasing. They can leave a good impression on potential customers. They can also provide an easy way for customers to get discounts. 

Constantly posting good-looking QR codes with interesting or quality content also make people talk about your business. As a result, it attracts more potential customers.

QR codes can be integrated into signs, ads, and packaging

QR codes can be printed onto stickers and placed on any surface, or they can be embedded into digital ads and packaging. This allows customers to scan the QR code and immediately be taken to the offer's page, without any extra steps needed.
