What is a QR Code?

Quick response, or QR, is a type of barcode that can store a multitude of information. The obvious difference between a QR Code and Barcode is its appearance. A QR Code is always in the shape of a square and contains smaller, even blocks similar to Tetris. A Barcode, on the other hand, has vertical bars in different thicknesses and often accompanied by a serial number.

What can a QR Code do?

Because of its versatility, a QR Code can be programmed to do a multitude of things. It can be split into two formats: Dynamic and Static. A Dynamic QR Code is useful for businesses or nonprofits in their marketing strategy because of its advantages. Though it needs a subscription to work, it is a small price to pay compared to the benefits it offers. Dynamic QR Code solutions are editable, which means if you made a mistake and only noticed it after the QR Codes are printed, you can easily log in to the dashboard and fix them without changing the appearance of the already printed Codes. This could be useful for these reasons:

  • The deadline for print is earlier than the actual campaign. By using a Dynamic QR Code, you can add a dummy QR Code and simply add the content after it’s printed.
  • Typos are inevitable. There are thousands of horror stories about how they only spotted a mistake after the QR Code is printed on hundreds and thousands of business cards, flyers, or brochures, resulting in high reprinting costs. With a Dynamic Code, you won’t even break a sweat.
  • Changing the direction of your campaign and thinking it’s too late? Not with Dynamic Codes. If you printed a Facebook QR Code and decided you need to get customer feedback instead, no problem. Simply change the QR Code solution in the dashboard and you’re good to go. Need to change it again? With our QR Code Generator PRO, you can do this for as many times as you want during your active subscription period.

Why does the Dynamic QR Code solution need a subscription to work?

In order to provide the best QR Code experience for you and your audience, the Dynamic Codes require an annual subscription for these reasons:

  1. The QR Code can be changed at any time and as many times as you want. All without ever reprinting a new QR Code.
  2. Each Dynamic Code is equipped with a scan tracking ability. This means you can gather some insights into how many people scanned your QR Code, at which location, on what day, down to the operating system of the scanner’s phone. All of this data is acquired in real-time. Learn why these scan metrics are important.
  3. Landing pages are what make or break a business. Each Dynamic Code (except Dynamic URL) comes with its own landing page that can be customized to fit your style.
  4. If that’s not enough, all of the Dynamic QR Code solutions are equipped with short URLs that are customizable. For example, instead of the URL being qrco.de/Xc0j5, you can customize it to qrco.de/summercampaign.
  5. But there’s more. For businesses or brands that want to strengthen their position in their market, the QR Codes can be white-labeled so that they stay unique to each brand. Instead of using our generic qrco.de short URL, you can use your own domain such as qr.mycustomdomain.com. Not convinced? Here’s why you should implement this so-called vanity URL.
