I Had a QR Code Epiphany Today!!! There IS an Effective Use to Them!!

Each day QR codes are becoming bigger and bigger, and though you can scan a QR code with your Droid or Iphone, and it takes you to your website, that use is limiting, can be effective, but with all the zooming in zooming out finger scrolling on the pages, and battery draining (you smart user's know exactly what I am talking about) viewing a persons website, even viewing my website on my phone is annoying.. I even have an HTC EVO (big screen for a phone) and its still annoying!

I actually discovered a use for QR codes today, that doesn't involve going to our websites, but could be a hundred times more effective! Instead of having your QR code direct a person to your website, use your QR code as a vcard. Thank about it.. It is actually quite brilliant... A person scans your code and BAM! there is all your contact information, your email, and your website.. The option pops up to save contact information in their phone book, they do, you don't have to worry about leads losing your business card or contact info again, you just helped them program your info into their phone in less then 15 seconds!!

Another thing with QR codes.. Do you want them to view your website or do you want them to call you..So why not cut through to bs and give them exactly what they need instead of leading them to a website on their phone that is going to drain their batteries and get frustrated scrolling through it that they will get off pretty quick.. Just remember, if you can get them to call you, you can get them to go to your website on their home computer to find homes!

That is just my spill on an effecitive use for QR codes...If anyone else has any tips to add please feel free to.. Attached to this blog is my QR code.. Scan it and see how easy it is to add my info to your phone and imagine how easy it would be for potiential clients to add your info if you used your QR code in such a way!

Great Post...  one of my favorites is a QR code that directs them to call me to make an appointment or ask a question...

Stacy like the post and the idea!  Your comments had some good thoughts as well.   Not using QR now, your post gave me ideas on how I should incorporate one.

I've been using www.QRFlyerBox.com (only for a couple of months).  It was started by a local Grand Rapids, MI Realtor (r) - Arthur Vachon and it's free to create your QR code and put your listings on there.  Every one seems to have a smart phone these days, so I'm all for it.

As of right now, I think QR codes are good if you need something to stare at to make you really, really dizzy.  Other than that, I'm waiting until they become more socially accepted before I even worry about it.
