Outback Solutions - A Google Favorite PlaceQR (Quick Response) Codes are an excellent item to add to social media, and hard copy advertising materials including business cards, magazines, billboards, vehicles, shop window displays (see the graphic to the right) and flyers as a way to send traffic to your website, blog, Facebook page or any other location on the web.  They may also be used for text messages and phone numbers.

The QR code is a matrix barcode,  which consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background.  Each is unique to a specific address, location or message.  In order to read a QR code you need a QR scanner.  Many smart phones have QR code reader applications available to download. If you have an iPhone, I recommend downloading the app called “QR Code Reader”.

Creating a QR Code. There are a number of websites that will generate QR Codes without charge.  The site I like is KAYWA QR Code.  It provides a simple, easy to use interface which provides for the creation of QR codes for URL, phone numbers and texts.

I recommend you start by creating a QR code for your website and post it on
your Facebook page or blog, just like to one for Outback solutions’ website below.
