If you have been thinking of new marketing techniques that can help you to get your message across in unique and exciting ways, you need to know that the mobile phone world is the way to go. It probably seems like not too long ago that the iPhone was introduced and people were absolutely thrilled with the prospect of a new kind of smart phone. It probably seemed so exciting and even futuristic at the time. Nowadays, however, smart phones like the iPhone have become pretty common. We see them all over the place. This doesn't mean, however, that all advertising and marketing professionals have caught up. Take a look at the QR Code Generator, and you will find that a new world awaits.

In short, a QR Code generator is a mechanism that allows you to create a QR image. This is basically a black and white barcode that your smart phone actually can read. When your phone reads the QR code, it takes you to a designated website. This website should be something that excites your customer base. It also should be something that explains more about your product or service. For example, you will want to describe more about your product and also provide a greater sales pitch. The QR website might even be a portal for you to capture email addresses and to gain new contacts. It is very important to note that the site that QR Code leads to has to be a site optimized for mobile devices otherwise your QR Code campaign will fail as the users will find it hard or impossible to interact with the site.

You will find the QR Code generator easy to use. You don't need to have any programming skills and you don't even know how to design a website. All you have to do is have a professional set up a mobile website for you that way you can have a landing page that your clients can find. Then you use the generator to type in the URL of the web page. After you have set the web page you can leave the other settings to their default values and generate the code.

For print media you have to download the QR Code in vector format or use a bigger raster. In most cases, you will want to have it large enough that your clients easily can find it, but not so large that the reader has trouble picking it up. The size of the QR Codes is affected by the size of the building blocks and the error correction level that is used. The larger QR codes tend to be the most difficult for the QR Code Reader to scan.

You can add some nice touches using the advanced design features of our generator like setting foreground/background colors or use images for this purpose and change the default style of the building blocks. After a few experimets you will get some really nice results.

When you have a pretty good idea of how to use the QR code generator, you will be able to customize your own codes. Not only is this an easy process, but it also is a great way to develop a new customer base. It is an exciting method that will be fun for your customers to try out. If you have any doubts, give a QR code a try.
