 Key
Considera2ons
 QR
Codes
are
for
print
(some
 2mes
it
might
be
appropriate
to
 use
online
–
Facebook,
for
 example,
possibly
on
TV
if
2me
 is
not
an
issue)

 •  Always
consider
“where”
the
 visitor
will
be
when
they
scan
 the
code!

 Key
Considera2ons
 QR Codes (or any marke0ng, for that maMer!) should  not be used to manipulate, or hassle your customer or  prospect!!!!

 Key
Considera2ons
 QR
Codes
are
not
(by
nature)
 very
flexible
–
avoid
costly
 reprin2ng
by
sedng
up
a
 redirect
with
a
shortener.
 •  Then,
the
code
stays
the
 same,
but
the
loca2on
can
 change
regularly.

 Step
1.
Build
a
QR
Strategy
 •  Consider
your
audience
and
 where
you
will
use
QR
 •  Iden2fy
a
“pain”
that
a
QR
code
 can
alleviate.
Or
a
convenience
 that
a
customer
will
appreciate.
 •  Determine
what
benefit
this
will
 give
to
your
audience.
 (Discounts?
Convenience?
 Informa2on)

 Step
2.
Get
a
URL
Shortener!
 •  Tiny.cc–
free
–
analy2cs/tracking
 (#
of
clicks)
–
public
(+)
–
 customizable
–
editable

 •  Ez.com (bud.url)
–
paid
–
 analy2cs/tracking
(#
of
clicks)
–
 not
public
–
customizable

–

 Why a URL shortener? You
want
to
give
the
visitors
 an
easy
alterna2ve
to
the
content,
in
addi2on
to
the
 QR
code.
(One
that
can
be
edited
later
is
best!)
