Marketing Homes with QR Codes

Reblogger Larry Story

I am reblogging this post to address one of the comments left by one of our fellow Active Rain members.  When creating your QR codes I have found that if you go to Google's site Goo.gl then when you log in to your Google Account you can shorten your URL and create the associated QR code.  Then you will be able to track the clicks from that specific QR code.  You can even see the countries the clicks came from and the Operating systems that they use.  So there is your tracking.

It's an Internet world and mobile phones are leading the way. That's why it's important our listings are also mobile friendly - something we've made a priority in our home marketing efforts for many years.

A QR Code is another technology that's been around for a few years actually, but over the last few months has become more popular. In fact, just a couple months ago I noticed a QR code on the corner of the screen during a Sears commercial.

QR Codes, like a bar code provide yet another way to deliver quick and easy access to content on the go, and in real estate that's what today's home buyers are looking for. These can be placed in both online and print marketing.

Here's a QR Code that I created for one of our listings. Can you tell me which of our listings it's coded to? Take a look, the home also has a new price :)

Simply download a free app to your phone using the link I've provide below. Then you can just point your phone camera to the code, click and capture the info. You'll be able to see property details and photos right on your phone.

Let me know if you have any questions, always happy to help!

Here's a link to one of the free QR Code readers I like to use. Enjoy.

I received my first phone call last week from a customer who had scanned one of our QR codes in a brochure, so now I know this really works!

Eric,

Congratulations on the successful lead.  Just convert it and those few seconds it took to create it has now paid off. 

 

Jason & Amber,

My pleasure.  You may actually have to recreate the code just make sure when you are on Goo.gl that you are logged into your google account.

Larry - This is really something I need to look into further.  I probably should start by getting an app for my phone.

Christine just go ahead.  I don't have it on my old phone yet.  But, plenty of our clients and future ones do.
