QR Code - Scan it!

They store your music, photos, contact lists and have even replaced your GPS device.  Android and iPhone smartphones are dominating the mobile industry and most of them have the ability to scan barcodes. I personally use this technology to compare prices by scanning the UPC codes on product packaging. Beyond product barcodes, QR barcodes (see QR code on right) are becoming a very popular marketing tool and if used properly, can generate traffic that you normally wouldn't see!

Where Do I Put A QR Barcode?

  • On the back of your car (window or bumper)
  • On signs that are stakes in the ground
  • Storefront windows
  • T-shirts
  • Anywhere you can imagine!

What Kind of Information Can a QR Barcode Store?

  • URL (Web Address, Ex:
  • Text (Any message you would like to store)
  • Phone Number
  • SMS (Specify the subject and message and allow the user to select the recipients)
