Marketing with QR Codes
Ever see one of these before?
If you haven’t noticed them before, you will now cause you are about to be enlightened on them, and how I use them to increase my earning in my style of marketing. QR Codes are generally used by “scanning” with the camera of cell phones (iPhone, android, some blackberries). QR Codes can be found anywhere but mostly on products so it is easy to purchase a replacement or get info and self market itself. You can find them in stores on products like electronics so that when you scan the code, it takes you to that stores page for the item. This way the store gets a second chance to sell it if you still have the link.
I Have taken a different approach to this. I use them in documentations such as eBooks. It enables a document to spread beyond just one computer. Say someone was reading a eBook and there was a QR Code. One of many things could happen. We believe the most typical scenarios would include but not be limited too:
- Someone reading the book may be aware of them already and scan it giving another chance for them to read more into it on the go.
- Someone reading the book may “not” be aware and ask a friend that might be present and they may show them. Also there may be multiple friends present that are all clued in afterwards and they scan your links just to test it out.
- The PDF you make, if good, might get printed. If the QR Code is on the first sheet, and not obnoxious, it may be exposed to people that see it in real life.
The best scenarios would involve it having an opportunity to reach additional people where before it would have involved many steps for someone to get the document sent to them. They can just scan it themselves and take it with them.
A better way to streamline the work of making QR Codes is to use the following script on your site. Every time you make a pretty affiliate link, or whatever kind, it will produce a QR Code for you on-the-fly.
Easy Redirect not only makes a pretty redirect link it also generates a QR Code automatically with every link you make with it. Best of all you can use it on all your domains once you have it.
Aside from just the standard pretty link, it has advanced linking features like:
- SEO Redirects
- Stealth Pages
- Stealth Redirects
- Promo Redirects
That’s right. You can organize your links for easy retrieval, if you wanted to edit them.
