Quick Response Code, or as most people call it “QR Code,” is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode. This two-dimensional code was invented by the Toyota subsidiary Denso Wave in 1994 to track vehicles during the manufacturing process. In recent years it has become common in consumer advertising and packaging. This powerful marketing tool is a great way to add a creative touch to your product.
In today’s case, that product is a business card. Because of the dissemination of smartphones, everybody has access to a barcode reader in their pocket. QR codes have become a focus of advertising because of the quick and effortless access to the brand’s URL, text, phone number, sms or any other digital provenance.
Beyond the mere convenience to the consumer, the importance of this capability is that it increases the conversion rate. Or in simpler words, the increase of chance that the advertisement will convert to a sale. Now that you understand the general use, the creative part is up to you.
