Kinwood’s Printing Quick Response “QR” Codes

Hello Kinwood Viewers!

QR Codes have become increasingly popular and Kinwood is now printing these codes on your behalf to help you spread your information via mobile tagging!

What is a “QR” Code you ask? The formal meaning is “Quick Response” which is a specific 2 dimensional code that is readable by QR readers or camera phones. This allows customers to instantly learn more about a business by visiting a mobile version of your company! ie: website, facebook page, twitter, promotional offers, phone numbers…etc.

QR codes storing addresses and URLs may appear in magazines, on signs, buses, business cards, or on just about any object about which users might need information. Users with a camera phone equipped with the correct reader application can scan the image of the QR Code to display text, contact information, connect to a wireless network, or open a web page in the phone’s browser

For all you Creative Marketers out there :  Media where QR codes have been deployed include: billboard ads, in-store displays, event ticketing and tracking, trade-show management, business cards, print ads, contests, direct mail campaigns, websites, email marketing, and couponing just to name a few. QR codes are of particular interest to marketers, giving them the “ability to measure response rates with a high degree of precision.
