In this fast-paced digital world, most businesses are switching to newer digital marketing strategies and one of the most popular ones is the use of QR codes . And to help all WordPress marketers around the world, the ultimate link management tool BetterLinks brings you a brand new feature – the BetterLinks QR Code Generator.
How Can QR Codes Help With Link Management In Marketing?
So before we get into BetterLink’s useful new feature, let’s understand what QR codes are and how they help with link management in digital marketing.
A QR (or Quick Response) Code is a two dimensional barcode that can be read and interpreted by the cameras of smartphones and devices via a QR code scanner . These days, such 2D barcodes are widely used in advertising, sales brochures, product documentation, and packaging for many different marketing communications and link management.
While it is a type of barcode, it can hold upto thousands of alphanumeric characters of information which is quite an upgrade from the traditional barcodes. Moreover, QR codes can be read in full 360 degrees in any direction , which eliminates any background or irrelevant issues with the barcodes, enabling you to have smooth communications with stored information every time.
When your website users and customers scan a QR code from your site or brochures with their phones, the codes can redirect them to a web link or content you set onto the code. And as the name of the code suggested (‘Quick’ Response), this redirection or communication takes place instantly.
For example, if you embed a QR code onto the emails that you send your clients or customers, they can easily scan the code and access important information, offer pages, contests and much more. This will not only highly improve customer satisfaction but also help spread a positive view of your business to potential clients and users.
And finally, the best part is that a QR code lets you keep track of all the redirected links. You will be able to instantly monitor the performances and the effectiveness of the marketing links and campaigns.
