You see them everywhere, but do you know what they are. These little chicken pocked looking barcodes are called QR Codes, standing for Quick Response codes. The reason why they are being used on everything is because they can take their viewer to any text, image or URL with a simple Smartphone scan.
The future of QR codes is huge. They not only cut back on paper use, but they are amazing when it comes to organizing and tracking. Businesses can use these to replace conventional text and track how many people actually view their content. They can be used in marketing campaigns where businesses want to spike curiosity and drive traffic to specific content.
You can place them on anything and direct people to any place you want, all with words. Scan the code above and see where it takes you!
