What is a QR Code, and are they even still relevant?

A QR Code (or Quick Response Code) is a type of barcode (typically square) first designed in 1994 for the automotive industry in Japan. Once scanned by a smartphone or tablet, they are used to point directly to a website, application, or information of some kind.

Are they still relevant? You bet. Nowadays, you don’t need a separate application to read QR codes, as most smartphone cameras automatically scan them and direct the user toward the content it has been programmed to point them to. It’s as easy as that.

What are the different ways a Q-ster can help my business?

Here are just a few working examples of how Q-sters are helping our clients in a variety of industries:

REAL ESTATE

Q-sters can be used to point users directly to listing pages, real estate and mortage broker websites, and QR Codes can be adjusted to feature new listings, upcoming listings, etc… Great for open houses, around the office, break rooms, and to give away to clients.

HOSPITALITY

Whether it’s a hotel room (to connect users to food and beverage menus, hotel amenities, or WiFi connection), a restaurant or bar (to promote events, specials, or menus), or a tourism business (to steer customers in the right direction), the potential applications are endless.

GENERAL CUSTOMER SERVICE

Perhaps your e-mail blast is getting a bit boring, or you’re looking for a new way to engage your customers/clients and let them know about your products and services, Q-sters are a great way to keep people engaged, and to see your brand consistently (let’s be real, they’re only looking at that e-mail once, and a coaster will be in front of them for a while).

 

How can my friends and I use Q-sters?

If you’re looking for a creative way to share memories of an event that go beyond the typical Facebook photo album, pick your favourite shot of you and your pals and we can link the QR Code to that Facebook album, a video of the favourite part of the night, or even Instagram. Reunion? Grad Party? Birthday? Girl’s Night Out? Bachelor/Bachelorette Party? Vacation? We’ve got you covered.

 

How can my family and I use Q-sters?

It’s all about making memories, and making them last. Maybe it’s a family photo album that you’d like your extended family to have access to, maybe it’s a special event such as a wedding, graduation, or Disneyland trip. With Q-sters, you can share those memories easier than ever, without all the fuss of making a physical album.
