QR Codes, What Are They & How to Create One

Here is a link to great article explaining everything you ever wanted to know about QR (Quick Response) Codes and how to use them.  http://searchengineland.com/what-is-a-qr-code-and-why-do-you-need-one-27588

This is a sample QR Code that will take you to my website, http://ChicagolandSoftwareCoach.com.  My favorite website for generating QR codes is http://quikqr.com/.

Quick QR Generates a graphic for you to use in your printed materials.  You can even create a QR Code for a specific page of your website.  One thing to help get your QR Code opened (scanned) is to put instructions with the code in your printed materials.

Here is some sample text that I have used in the past with my QR Codes:

              “Scan this QR Code with your smart phone to visit C3 Solutions website.  Don’t have a QR Scanner?  Just search your smart phone apps for a QR scanner, and follow the download instructions.”

I hope this has taken some of the mystery out of QR Codes for you.  And that you are now ready to setup your own QR Code to drive more traffic to your website.
