Always open?

QR codes on windowYour shop is closed. Even you need to sleep sometime.

A customer is standing in front of your shop window admiring something in your shop window.

How easy are you making it for your client to buy that product right now?

I hope you at least have your web address printed on your shop window.

But you can make it even easier.

 

A QR code (aka 2D barcode) is a picture that has a web address in it. That customer can point their mobile phone camera at it, click the find button, and instantly be taken to any webpage you desire, for example your web page front page, your products pages, your Facebook, twitter or Linked in pages.

How do you do it? Easy, find a QR code generator on the web (see below) and put in the web address you want. It will generate a .jpg file that you can put into your printed materials (e.g. the back of your business card, fliers, window signage, and even on your physical products).

Here is a code generator from Telstra that also lets you set up your QR code to allow your customers to SMS or email you, call you or display text on their phone (useful if you want to display more information about a specific product)

REMEMBER: Always test your QR codes before putting them into your documentation, and again after you’ve had your documents printed and before distributing them to customers!

Consider this scenario (you may need a coffee first).
