Qr Codes - New Media Presentation

  1. 1. QR Codes<br />By Megan Chopay<br />
  2. 2. What are they?<br />Specific barcodes readable by scanners or camera phones (short for quick response).<br />Encode information from a two-dimensional space, such as magazines, advertisements, television and websites.<br />Developed in Japan to track auto parts but have become popular for commercial use.<br />
  3. 3. How to use them?<br />Made for quickly and easily linking content on Smartphones.<br />Most Android phones and Blackberries are able to read the codes right out of the box. For iPhones, the App Store offers a free QRReader.<br />Creating your own QR Code: <br />http://qrcode.kaywa.com/<br />
  4. 4. Where you may have seen them<br />
  5. 5. 2011 Grammy Campaign<br />“Music is Life is Music” QR Code<br /> on all print material and outdoor<br /> advertisements<br /> Unlocks exclusive Grammy content <br /> via codes specific to your location.<br />Content includes:<br /> Eight full past Grammy performances<br />Allows users to see all the tags <br />associated with a space when they <br />enter a location — so, if you were to <br />visit the record store, you would be <br />presented with all the other tags <br />associated with the location<br />
  6. 6. Strengths/Opportunities<br />Direct link to web page that delivers company or product information<br />Ability to measure number of page views<br />QR format can support a large amount of content <br />Simple to use and easy to place for publicity, marketing and advertising purposes<br />Provide consumers with exclusive content<br />Appeal to a younger more tech-savvy demographic<br />
  7. 7. Weaknesses/Threats<br />Users must be equipped with a camera phone and the correct reader software, which is currently only available on Smartphone's<br />Limited reach because many people don’t know how to use them <br />Can’t directly track number of people who scan a QR code<br />Consumers don’t know what they’re getting once they access the QR code, so it will not always be utilized<br />
