Rating QR Code

Collect reviews to your inbox

Rating QR Code is the fastest way to ask your customers’ opinion on products and services. Just ask a simple question on the customizable mobile page so your customers can leave a short review that’s automatically sent to your preferred inbox. Place the Rating QR Code where customers hang out the most, for example, at the cash register, lounge areas, or even in the dressing room.

Coupon QR Code

Promote discounts and deals

Offering discounts and deals is a great way to attract potential customers to try your products for the first time. Use the Coupon QR Code on your banners and posters so you can target not only new customers but also reward loyal ones with money-can’t-buy deals. The Coupon QR Code allows your customers to save the coupon in their smartphones until they’re ready to redeem it. They can also share the offer with their friends to help boost your sales even more.

Video QR Code

Tell your brand story

As consumers become more interested in brands that align with their values, you can tell your own story with videos. Share your brand story and show the journey on how your products are made by placing a Video QR Code on your clothing tags or labels. With a simple scan, customers can view one video or an entire playlist. The QR Code comes with a customizable mobile page where you can include a button that links to your website, contact form, or any landing page.

Image Gallery QR Code

Share more images

Space is limited on advertising, so why not use the Image Gallery QR Code on newspapers and magazine ads? You can include an unlimited number of images of your items, include captions for each photo and link to a specific landing page on your website. And if you ever want to switch the images, you can always do so without having to reprint a new QR Code.

Digitize your lookbook

Lookbooks, catalogs, or in-house magazines are great promotional materials to engage with customers in a visually appealing way. Printing them costs money, but with the PDF QR Code, you only need to print it once and place it on displays or shop windows. This way, your customers can scan and download the lookbooks and read it at their leisure. Update the content as often as you need without reprinting a new QR Code, thus saving you time and money in the long run.
