There is a lot of QR code software available for download. Search your phones marketplace for QR code readers or QR code scanners to find more. Most are available for free or at a low-cost.

Once you’ve found the perfect reader and have it installed, find some QR codes to test. All you will need to do to test them is to open the application, point the camera at the code, and wait for it to scan so you can read the encoded information.

Some codes may direct you to a website; some may provide you with some sort of coupon or deal, virtual tours, videos, company history, and a vast amount of other information. Scanning the codes can be a lot of fun, especially when think of it as getting “secret” information.

If you’re looking into incorporating QR codes into your business make sure you know which software applications are compatible with the code. Your customers will appreciate knowing exactly which code to download and where they can find it. They will also appreciate a QR code which provides them something of value. This can include more in-depth information about your company, personalized videos, and even consumer discounts. Making sure your code provides something of interest will likely help generate more scans. If you’re unsure as to what your code should include, brainstorm and do not fear your imagination.
