Although the use of QR codes has subsided a bit in recent years, they still remain a viable option for mobile advertising strategies because they provide immediate access to a brand’s advertising message or offer with little consumer effort. Beyond customer convenience, the importance of this capability is that it increases the chances that contact with the advertisements will convert to a sale, by attracting interested prospects at the point of sale, with no delay or effort, bringing the viewer to the advertiser’s message or offer immediately.
QR codes provide a convenient one-step process for consumers. Once a code is scanned the encoded information can be used to automatically trigger a range of actions on the user’s device, including:
- View a Mobile App, website or landing page
- Send SMS/Text messages
- View messages, special offers or Mobile Coupons
- Map locations & directions
- View social profiles
- Integrate into marketing campaigns
