EYB Promotions 101: How to Create a QR Code

25/01/2011 at 10:01 am 3 comments

So, we’ve created a few posted about QR codes – “Top 5 Best Ways to Use QR Codes at Trade Shows” and “5 Tip for Using QR Codes on Promotional Items.” They were a good start, but many clients have asked us to take a step back. “That’s all great EYB, but how in the heck do you go about creating a QR code?” So, let’s start from the beginning.

  1. You need to have a strategy (check out past posts to review ideas).
  2. Know what you want to link to: website, phone number, Facebook page, text message, video, image, etc.
  3. Go to a site that allows you to create the code: A popular site is Kaywa: http://qrcode.kaywa.com/. We like using bitly.Pro: http://bit.ly/pro/ because you can track your clicks/views. The downside is that you have to create a business account, which has to be verified — which takes time.
  4. Upload or add your link, image, message to the QR code maker
  5. Select ‘create’
  6. Save the image down to your computer
  7. Add the image to your marketing materials. Note: we would suggest creating different codes for different campaigns.
