Quick Response Barcodes (QR Codes)

Quick response barcodes are a specific type of two dimensional barcode.

Usually the size of a postage stamp with the appearance of a miniaturised crossword puzzle, QR codes can hold significantly more information than the regular barcodes we’re all familiar with seeing on our groceries, magazines and durable goods.

But it’s not the amount of information that makes QR codes such an exciting tool, it’s what you can now do with them.

Unlike their one dimensional cousins, QR codes can be encoded with text, an email address or even a URL. Smartphone app’s from the likes of Apple and Google can de-code them automatically using the phone’s camera as a barcode reader and take the user to a specific web page, open a new email or even send an SMS.

QR codes are not new, but the explosion in smartphone popularity has propelled them to become one of the most exciting marketing tools available and one perfectly in tune with the ever more mobile world in which your customers live.

For many businesses, QR codes are the doorway to the corridor that links real-world marketing materials and campaigns to brand owners web-based content and the e-commerce opportunities that lie therein.
