Are you using QR-Codes in your Marketing Yet?

QR-Code for ArmstrongEstates.comWhat the heck is a QR-Code?  Not many people are familiar with the smart phone application but it's catching on FIRE worldwide.  Time to get into the game. A QR code is simply a bar code that allows people with smart phones to quickly scan the QR code using a free QR reader app and will be taken to a website with more information about real estate or that agent's personal website.  Works with I-Phones, Blackberrys and Droid phones and many others. 

You can add them to your digital arsenal AND your print ads.  Not only do they work on the internect, but you would missing the boat if you did not include them on your printed ad campaign such as business cards, postcards, magazine or newspaper ads.  Why?  People are connected to the world with their smart phones.  Imagine getting a "Just Listed" postcard in the mail, the prospect could quickly scan the QR Code on the card with their phone and be taken directly to that listing website to get all the information they want.  Or someone at Starbucks reading the newspaper and run across one of your QR-Codes for a new property, they simply scan that code and see all the relevant information you want them to see. 

Time to get with the program. Technology will only improve our business and connections to potential leads.  Generate your QR-Codes today!  I use this website to generate my QR-Codes.  Scan the CODE here now to see how it works.

You bet I am!   I just started putting them on my flyers, the code is linked to a video tour so people can "tour" it right away!

Still trying out how to put them into my sidebar on my blog. Can't wait to tag myself online with this new technology.  Pretty exciting.

One thing to stress to industry folks who doubt:

AR Code generation and use can be done for free!

Very cool! I wanted to use it on my business so people could have an instant Vcard but I can't seem to figure that out? Have you?
