How Smart Phones And QR Codes Will Revolutionise Internet Marketing
If you do not recognize a QR Code at the moment you certainly will be long. Smart Phones & QR Codes Will Revolutionise Marketing. When the code is scanned with a Smart Phone it takes the user to the Mobile Website hidden within the code. Once you have had your Code made, it can be printed out into newspaper ads, flyers, Letter Heads, Business Cards … well I'm sure you get the idea of ??how critical QR Codes will become in your business.
QR is short for Quick Response (because they can be read quickly by a smart phone). They are used to transfer information from within the code and put it in to your smart phone. These codes can carry up to several hundred times more data than that carried by an ordinary bar code. Implanted within the code is a Mobile Website URL (Mobile Website Address).
