To use QR code marketing effectively, customers must have a QR code reader installed on their iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, Apple iPad, or Google Nexus 7 phone. You may want to have special area in the store set up to help shoppers install the app in their phone. With their new QR code apps installed, they can scan your product codes first. A great way to build brand loyalty right off the bat. First to market always claims the benefits of leadership in their category.
Don’t forget to offer a discount on your product for taking the time to install their QR code reader.
