Raise Your QR IQ

More and more people are starting to associate the codes with action, but never assume your customers will know what to do. Make it a point to spell out how to scan the code. Help instruct customers on where they can grab scanner apps.  Also, remember that digital codes should provide some kind of value to the scanner. It may be easiest to direct digital code scanners to your website, but remember that it also can be used to map your location, add your contact information to their phone, and more.
