QR Code Generator
The QR Code Generator is a tool that creates QR codes entirely for free. This is a great resource for developing cost-effective marketing campaigns that utilise QR codes, letting you store lots of useful data that can be easily accessed when scanned with a smartphone.
What is a QR Code?
Quick response code, commonly known as QR code, is a type of barcode that consists of two-dimensions, with each part of the code holding an impressive amount of data. While originally designed for logistics in the automotive industry, QR code has become a hugely popular marketing tool because of their ability to be scanned by a smartphone.
Because most people have smartphones, QR codes are now specially developed for marketing purposes, storing large amounts of data relative to a produce, service, or brand. Consumers simply scan a QR code with their phone and will receive data, making it very useful for fast and effective marketing.
QR code is also open source, which allows anyone to work on the technology, resulting in a huge wave of improvement sin just a few short years. For instance, over 7,000 digitals or over 4,000 characters can now be stored into a single QR code, creating many possibilities for storing information.
How Does the QR Code Generator Work?
The QR Code Generator couldn’t be easier to use. Once you’ve developed the appropriate content you want store onto the QR code you are pretty much ready to go. It shouldn’t take longer than a few minutes, and you’ll have a brand-new QR code completely free of charge!
To begin, select the type of data type you want the QR code to store. This could be a URL, text, email, PDF, Wi-Fi information, social media account etc. After selecting the appropriate data type that you want in the code, you’ll be prompted to apply the content in the form section.
For example, if you want to copy a URL into the QR code, simply copy and paste the desired URL.
After adding the necessary content, choose between static and dynamic. Dynamic codes are useful for on-going marketing as they can be edited even after printing, with most users preferring to use this option.
Now, the code is ready to be generated, but there are some personal touches you may wish to add to help distinguish the QR code as part of your brand. The code itself remains unchanged after the content is added, but you can adjust things such as the colour, imagine size, and resolution.
Furthermore, you can personalise the code by adding logos, shapes, colours, corner markers, frames, and more!
Once you have finalised the design of the QR code it is just a case of downloading the code image and using it as needed. Code images can be downloaded in JPEG, EPS, and SVG graphics.You can also embed the QR code directly on your website.
Always make sure you scan the code after it is generated to ensure it works as required! It’s a good idea to create two separate codes, a basic code that holds the important information, and a customized code that has some more personalized touches, as the latter are often harder to scan.
