Are there Twitter QR Code use cases I can check out?
If you’d like to get inspired to use QR Codes in innovative and unique ways, here are a few examples from fictional brands to get your creativity flowing.
Save the Bees Foundation is a nonprofit organization that relies on social media to get their message out there. By adding Twitter QR Code on all of their print materials, the foundation improves its online presence using its unique hashtag #savethebeesnow.
It’s not easy to promote a new dish at a restaurant. But at Southern Restaurant, they managed to get their regular diners to share a tweet with a discount code to pull in foodies from the local area.
Springfield City had just created its own Twitter page to highlight the city’s top attractions to locals and visitors. To gain new followers and promote the page, a Twitter QR Code is printed on every brochure and flyer.
As local musicians, The Three Sparrows band needed to promote their music to a broader audience to go big. That is why they’ve added Twitter QR Code on stage banners so that their audience can tweet about their music and help them promote on social media.
Organizing an event is stressful. Getting people to attend is even harder. Verge Event Management held a contest to promote their event by offering people a chance to win tickets by tweeting. The Twitter contest attracted people locally as well as those in nearby cities to participate.
Anything else I should know before using the Twitter QR Code generator?
Link to profile or post a tweet?
The Twitter QR Code generator offers two functions: It links to your Twitter profile or posts a tweet with a scan. To promote your Twitter account and get new followers, select the link to profile option. To start a conversation surrounding your brand or product, select the post a tweet option.
Test before printing
QR Codes created with the Twitter QR Code generator are static, which means they are not editable after being generated. Before printing, we advise you to do multiple test scans to ensure they are scannable.
We recommend a minimum size of 2 x 2 cm (0.8 x 0.8 in) for any QR Codes. This ensures that your QR Codes remain scannable, especially when you’re about to print a large batch on flyers or posters. Visit our guide before you print for more tips.
Add a logo
If you own a company, include a logo on your QR Code to increase brand awareness. Whenever a QR Code with your logo appears anywhere, your audience or customers will not hesitate to scan it as it makes them feel secure.
Use your own colors
QR Codes are the perfect place to splash some colors that match your personality or brand. One important thing to note: Always use a darker color for the foreground (the black and square pixels itself) and a lighter color for the background. Visit our QR Code design guide for more tips.
