QR Codes & How They Will Change The Way We Market!!!March 10, 2011
What are QR Code?
A QR code is a specific matrix barcode, readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera phones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square patter on a white background. The information encoded can be txt, URL or other data. QR stands for Quick Response and was created by Denso-Wave in 1994.
How to Use QR Codes on Your Mobile Device:
You will first need to download a program for your Mobile Phones Operating System. Below I have included a website with a search for your phone to find a QR Readers. I have also included links to the most common Iphone & Android Readers. These readers will use your camera on your cell phone to scan the QR Code and show you the information encoded in it.

How we at the Susie Kirkland Team will be using this Technology to Expand Our Marketing:
First we will be adding a QR Code to all our flyers. This code, when scanned, will direct you to the listing on our webpage or a virtual tour of the property. Second we will be adding two QR Codes to the back of Susie‚Äôs Business Card. One of these codes will direct you to Susie‚Äôs Webpage and the other to her Listing Presentation. We have many other ideas for these codes and how they can be used to turn print advertising into internet advertising. This will help push our marketing presence to potential buyer and sellers.
I have included a couple of samples below that you can scan directly from the screen with you phone once you have downloaded a QR Reader. We invite you to check it out and look forward to the way advertising and information is becoming interactive and more informational.
We hope you enjoyed this introduction to some of the new technology we will be using. If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I will try my best to assist you in using QR Codes. Have fun and be sure to keep an eye out for them on all types of products…you never know what you might find!!!
