Add a QR Code to Your Business Cards

A recent HEROweb Marketing Bite introduced the topic of QR codes and included some free QR code generators. Just to recap, QR codes are square, barcode-like images that can be read by smartphone scanners. Once scanned, they open to a link that goes to anything from your site to your Facebook page or your blog. That makes them perfect to include on a business card, as they are a memorable way to get your name out there.

Here's a QR code that links to HEROweb's Facebook page:

The QR code that you create can link to or embed a data file that many phones can instantly add to their owner’s address book. For example, If you take this business card to a conference, you can automatically add your info to the contact list of anyone who scans your card. Then, they can give the card back to you or pass it on to someone else.

The website lets you easily select the data you would like to embed into your code (such as your website URL, YouTube video, Google Maps Location, social media profiles, telephone number, email address, contact details, event details, and more). Once that is selected, you can create the code’s colors and how you want to receive the code. You can even choose to have the code printed on objects such as hats and mugs.
