Mobile Marketing With QR Codes
Mobile marketing is not just for big brands anymore. There are lots of ways small businesses can tap into their customers’ mobile lives. But in the spirit of integrated marketing, you need a way to take offline marketing (like print ads, direct mail pieces, posters, etc.) and tie it to your online world.
Chances are that a large, valuable portion of your target market can scan a QR code.
The technology barriers are fading fast, and according to Nielsen, 62 percent of mobile users age 25 to 34 own a Smartphone. Combine that with the fact that QR codes are become increasingly accepted, and you’ve got a great way to connect your audience with your brand, even while they’re on the go.
QR codes can be used for many different marketing objectives:
Delivering information about your business - address, telephone number, web site, email address, opening hours etc.
Sales - giving information about your existing or new products, linking to brochures or special offers and discounts.
Connecting audiences to content that helps them engage with you.
All three of those objectives take advantage of the QR code’s unique ability to connect the world to your online properties, with a retail-oriented, transactional, or simply informational approach. All of them will help you build relationships with your customers.
And they seem to be cropping up everywhere.You'll see QR codes printed on envelopes. adverts, direct mail pieces, and posters. They all invite everyone to scan the codes. Once they do that, they can do everything from buying event tickets to watching performer interview videos, and more.
Keep in mind that even though you’re concerned with marketing a small business, your objectives don’t differ much from those of larger companies. You still want to sell more products and services, make it easy for your customers to contact you, and build valuable relationships through engaging content. QR codes are an affordable solution for achieving all of those.
