You're seeing them all over the place! Those funny looking squares are seen more and more in the Real Estate industry. What are they and how do they work?
It is a very simple technology to use. On your smart phone you simply need a "QR code" reader and these readers are usually free. I have a few readers on my iPhone but they are also available on the other platforms as well. As you can see in the video all you have to do is scan the QR code and voila! The QR code will bring you to the web site. The web site you are being re-directed to should be a mobile enabled site in order for you to easily browse the web site without having to scroll all over the place on your smart phone. It's that simple.
I have seen many different uses for these codes but in my opinion these are not really useful online. If I have to get you to scan it from your mobile phone (as you are surfing the internet) you probably won't do it. A link or web address would be better while surfing. I believe that in print, it will be better.
There are a few other ways you can use the QR codes. Some will text you, send a SMS message or even make a phone call for you. As you can see below I have created a few different QR codes for you to try.Give it a try and let me know what you think.
