What are QR Codes?

Whether you’re shopping in a mall or reading through the newspaper, you’ll notice these funny looking boxes everywhere. Sometimes they’re black and white, sometimes, they’re beautiful pieces of art. What are they? QR Codes.

QR is an acronym for Quick Response. First used in the auto industry in Asia, QR codes are now widely seen in display advertising as a way to bridge offline and online content. They’re essentially a new form of 2-dimensional bar codes that store more data and are easier to scan than a standard UPC bar code. Instead of a clunky scanner, you just use your smartphone. How?

Follow these steps on how to scan a QR code:

  1. Download a QR reader app to your smartphone.
    (For Android, you can download Google Goggles. For iPhone, you can use download the Kaywa Reader.)
  2. Launch your QR reader app and scan the code below with your camera lens.
  3. That’s it!

Businesses can use QR codes to supplement print advertisements by squeezing in more information using the code. Once scanned, consumers have an opportunity to learn more about the business! To incentivize consumers to scan your code, you may consider including an offer like, “Scan this code to receive an instant $5 off your order!”

QR codes can take users to:

  • Website URL
  • A coupon
  • A Facebook page

  • Product details
  • Phone number
  • Map/Directions page
  • Contact Information

Small Business Saturday: Nov. 27!

As we all know, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two of the biggest shopping days in America. Large retail chains and mega-large e-commerce sites seem to be the main focus every year. This year, a movement has begun asking, “What about a day meant to benefit the Small Businesses that play such a vital role in our economy?” And people are answering!

Small Business Saturday, which is being held on Nov. 27, is a national movement to encourage shoppers to make a commitment to go out on that Saturday after Thanksgiving and support local business.  According to the official Small Business Saturday web page, it is, “A day to come together in support of the small businesses we love. The shops and restaurants that employ our neighbors and reinvest our money close to home. The businesses that are the heartbeat of our communities and local economies.”

You can see more and join the movement by logging on to Facebook and going to the official Small Business Saturday Facebook Page.
