Did you QR today? QR (quick response) codes for Real Estate marketing. Bar Codes for the common folk - sort of!

Using QR Codes to Benefit Your Real Estate Business.

In today's fast paced  technology world of cell phones, text messages, and instant messaging, google voice-ing, face-timing, it's no wonder yet another tool is emerging, the QR Code. Of course, it would stand for "Quick Response." Everything is about fast information today, and the QR Code for real estate is no exception.

Imagine driving by a for sale sign and noticing the black and white image that resembles something from one of your childhood "fun books", you know the one where you have to use a "magic" highligher to reveal the image. But you recognize this as a "Q R code" (how future tech of you) and take a picture of it with your cell phone and are instantly connected to the virtual tour and detail page about the listing.

Explaining it a bit better, you'll need a web-enabled phone and you will need to have QR Reader software (free app on the iPhone). Once you have the software on the phone, you can shoot a picture of these qr codes wherever you see them. When you scan one, you are taken to the web page the "maker" of the QR code wants you to see, nicely optimized for cell phone viewing.150 west parkway pompton plains nj - QR codes on real estate for sale sign

QR codes are easy to generate on sites such as kaywa  and can be imprinted on countless objects and marketing materials like: business cards, flyers, postcards, mailers, for sale signs, banners, and much much more.

I   L-O-V-E   QR codes!  I have them included on the cover of my CMA's, on my brochure box and even my website QR on a magnetic bumper sticker on the back of my car. I plan to include them on my bsuiness cards & mailings as well!

Is it worth it you may ask?  Well, the other day I was holding an open house hear in Northern Virginia and a gentleman stood outside in the freezing cold to read the QR code BEFORE he came in to the warm home!  He saved the page on his Droid and said "great!  Now I don't need the brochure".  The sky is the limit to what we can do with this great bit 'o technology!

Marie, thanks for the post.  I have been reading about QR codes and have installed the reader on my iphone.  No one in my area uses them yet.  I would like to be the first.  Any advice on getting started?

Thanks again, loved the video.

Hi Marie

 

QR Codes are great, I think the public awareness is still behind though

I know about them and use them occasionally. But I think that they will take years before we are using them to access information. IT's like being at the book store and reading the book instead of buying it after taking it home. It's not practical and relatively unusual manner of doing research. We just don't look that deeply into matters when out and about shopping/driving/driving. But that is my two cents.

Regards, Leah
