I have been looking for a good article that explains this well and then explains how to do QR Codes. I like the one. I am going to check out their links. I have a mental note to do this over the holidays.
Everyone is familiar with bar codes. They make retrieving information easy with a simple scan, helping businesses run smoothly and efficiently.
Wouldn’t it be great if this technology could be used to market your real estate business and connect with your clients? Well, now you can using QR Codes!
What Are QR Codes? QR Codes are the latest and greatest emergence in mobile technologies, allowing you to transfer and link to information with a simple click of a cell phone camera.
So what exactly are QR codes? QR-Codes are two dimensional barcodes, designed to have their contents decoded at a high speed. To put it simpler – think of them as a bar code that works like an online link.
The acronym QR is derived from the term Quick Response and that is just what these are!
How Do they Work? Most mobile phones with a digital camera will work. The camera, along with decoding software, captures a picture of the QR Code and translates the information stored on that particular code.
This information can be a link to a website, contact information, MP3 file, a coupon, and much more.
Get Your Own QR Codes! To get a list of decoding software/applications just do a quick Google Search for QR Code Generator and you’ll find a plethora of sites and widgets just waiting to create your QR Code. Here is a QR Code generator that we tried. You decide what type of information you want to store in your QR Code (Link, Contact information, Calendar Event, etc.), and then just add the information, click generate and there is your code! You can save the image and imprint it anywhere you want! Using QR Codes to Benefit to Your Business... Imagine a potential customer walking past your window and noticing the black and white image that resembles something out of the magic eye book.
They take a picture of it with their cell phone and are instantly connected to your website, or they can find your contact information automatically stored in their phone.
QR codes are simple to generate and can be imprinted on countless objects and marketing materials such as T-shirts, business cards, flyers, postcards, signs banners, and much much more.
ALERT, INNOVATIVE IDEA!! If your office puts flyers in a store front window, make sure your flyers have a QR Code for that listing which will of course lead the potential buyer to the listing on your website!
They may not want to go in to the office and chat, but you don’t want them to anyway... you want them to visit the website for more information and call YOU!
It maybe too soon to tell how mainstream these QR Codes will become, but they are so simple to use why not stay ahead of the curve!
