It seems like just about every business uses QR codes in their advertising campaigns, and it’s not hard to see why. They are convenient and easy to use ways to direct potential customers or users to a particular place on the web. Simply scan the code, and BAM!, people are directed fast and efficiently to exactly where you want them to go.
These codes pop up mostly in magazines, posters or even in stores – anytime when you aren’t sitting at a computer. Rather than directing a potential customer to a website, you can instead just give them a code. This safes the consumer time, as they don’t have to open up the internet browser on their phone and type in a particular web address.
A potential personal use for QR codes would be to have them printed on business cards or sent with resumes, which could then be used to direct interested parties to my website. Like this! Making a code took two seconds using qrcode.kaywa.com
