Make Your Own QR Code

QR codes are similar to barcodes but can hold much more information that a traditional barcode. They are those black and white squares that you see showing up everywhere. QR codes can be scanned with smartphones featuring QR code reader apps and can provide the user with endless types of information. QR codes are not that well known to casual users but are proving to be a potential game changer in mobile technology. Not only can QR codes be used by businesses to fulfill their marketing needs, they can also be created by anyone fairly easily. Learn how to make your own QR code below.

How To Make Your Own QR Code

  1. The first step in making your own QR code is to find a QR code generator. There are a bunch of sites online that will quickly create QR codes for you and most of them are offered free of charge.
  2. Once you find the QR code generator that you want to use, you have to figure out what type of data you want in the code and then add your content. Content can consist of text, images, phone numbers, URLs, and more.
  3. Once you have generated your QR code, it is very important to make sure that it works properly. In order to test your QR code, download a QR code scanner app to your smartphone and scan your QR code to make sure it takes you to the correct information.
  4. Once your QR code is made and you make sure that it works correctly, you can share the code with others. Share your QR code by printing it on flyer, or embed it on your blog or website.
  5. Once your QR code is finished and shared with friends, use a tracking service such as Google Analytics to track the success of your newly created QR code.
