Business owners, entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, and government managers have different goals, but they also have one thing in common: keeping contacts engaged. While QR codes have been around for a while, EZ Texting’s platform offers a variety of ways for you to integrate them into your outreach efforts.
What QR Codes Are:
QR codes are squares that look like static. However, embedded in the static is a digital code. When someone scans a QR code with their phone, they’re usually taken to a website or will receive special messaging or promotional info.
How QR Codes Work:
Customers will need a QR scanner app on their phone; both Google Play and Apple’s App Store offer numerous free QR scanners.
Below is a QR code - scan it with an app and see what happens!
Leveraging QR Codes Through EZ Texting:
EZ Texting provides numerous in-app tools that will generate a QR code. Among the most popular tools are the URL and text message QR generators.
With the URL tool, simply enter a web page into the field and EZ Texting will provide a QR with that link embedded into it. This is especially effective if you’ve created a landing page, specifically for a promotion. With the text message generator, simply add your message (consider a call to action) and EZ Texting will embed it into the QR code.
