How QR codes help business

How can Designer QR codes help my business? What can I use them for?

We’ve broken this down into 3 stages:

  • STAGE 1 - basic use of designer QR codes
  • STAGE 2 - next level uses
  • STAGE 3 - advanced uses

Of course, this is changing every day as people find new uses for designer QR code technology, and certain sectors may wish to tackle advanced uses immediately – ultimately, the choice is yours.



On business cards – direct scanners to your online resume, small business Facebook page or website, to import your contact info

On marketing material – brochures, fliers, programs, handouts, powerpoints, conference name tags and so on. Qr codes will direct scanners to where you want them to go

On product packaging – does your product needs installation? A QR code can lead it straight to a how-to video, (helps sell product, help with install, help reduce call-centre traffic)
