I’m sure you’ve heard of QR codes by now; those squares of squiggly-lined code that redirects a smartphone user to a specific website. They seem to be all the rage lately–I see them on business cards, flyers, and even cereal boxes. While I’m not so sure that they are worthy of all this mania, they are unique, quirky little codes you can utilize if you so desire.
The nice thing is, they are extremely easy to make and use. Ready for your steps?
- Go to a QR code-making site; www.QRstuff.com is pretty good
- Insert your domain name (make sure to include the htt:// bit)
- Download your code
- Upload it as you would a picture onto your business cards, mailers, etc
You can also create QR codes for your contact information (called a VCARD), Facebook page, PayPal link, and more to show up on the user’s phone.
* Users will have to have a QR Reader app installed on their phones to use your code.
