QR Codes Create a Buzz on Customised Promotional Products From EmbroidMe

Have you noticed those funny looking square bar codes popping up everywhere? They are called QR (quick response) codes, and they have opened up a whole new realm of marketing possibilities. It’s time to get ahead of the game and apply QR embellishments to customised promotional products.

A QR code is a two-dimensional barcode that can be scanned by a smartphone camera and transfers information. Based on the type of code it is, it might direct the viewer to a website, make a phone call, deliver a vCard or more. Imagine the conversation and fun clients can have discovering what a company’s code has to offer.

To date, QR codes have been spotted on direct mail pieces, movie posters, business cards and in Times Square. EmbroidMe’s catalog of customized promotional products offers an incredible variety of products that a code can be applied to, enabling a company to take full advantage of QR codes to market to consumers in a fun and interactive way.

Shirts, mugs, keychains, bags, nearly the entire line of customized promotional products from EmbroidMe can be given new life with a simple QR code, that will enable companies to engage clients by the nature of the QR code’s detail, all while promoting the brand. Imagine a brand’s QR code on t-shirts (or parka, in Maine) for a custom promotion.

Or, making a bigger impression by printing up large numbers of t-shirts have people wear them to a public event like a ballgame, street fair or campaign stop. For more impact, put different messages on the shirts, so that people will take more scans of more of the codes that can also be turned into a “retweet” so that customers can share in the promotion on Twitter.

“As more people embrace new technology, fun and innovative ways to incorporate it will be adopted quickly. Companies can leverage this to their advantage by providing the right customized promotional products, at the right time,” said Christine Marion, director of retail operations for EmbroidMe.

What is a QR code and how to use it!

We all know that one of the keys to great SEO is making sure you keep your website updated, new and fresh. Whether you do this with a blog, or you change your homepage with new offers, coupons or new products, it serves to show Google that your site is “alive.” For many small businesses in particular, this is a real challenge.

So you already have great, fresh content on your site—what’s next? Do you know what is coming that may benefit your small business?

Have you heard of QR codes yet? Here is a quick introduction. What Are QR codes?

Quick steps to make and read a QR code

  1. Download the QR Reader from the App Store to your Smart Phone
  2. Scan this QR code to see how it works
  3. Create your own QR code with, http://quikqr.com

They look like this: (This QR code is for our Facebook Page, make sure you login to Facebook with your phone browser first)

They come to us from Japan where they are very common. QR is short for Quick Response (they can be read quickly by a cell phone). They are used to take a piece of information from a transitory media and put it in to your cell phone. You may soon see QR Codes in a magazine advert, on a billboard, a web page or even on someone’s t-shirt. Once it is in your cell phone, it may give you details about that business (allowing users to search for nearby locations), or details about the person wearing the t-shirt, show you a URL which you can click to see a trailer for a movie, or it may give you a coupon which you can use in a local outlet.

The reason why they are more useful than a standard barcode is that they can store (and digitally present) much more data, including url links, geo coordinates, and text. The other key feature of QR Codes is that instead of requiring a chunky hand-held scanner to scan them, many modern cell phones can scan them. The full Wikipedia description is here.

How does the cell phone read the code?
The cell phone needs a QR code reader, like this one from Kaywa. It takes literally 1 minute for someone with an iPhone or Android phone to find and install the reader.

How do you generate a code?
You can easily generate a QR code using a site like Kaywa.com or you can use the Open Source code to generate codes for you if you have a smart developer on hand. Google also has a tool — see our separate article about that: Close-Up With Google’s New QR Code Generator.

How can you use QR codes to benefit search marketing?
We are only just scratching the surface of how they will be used. We have added one to every business listing in our directory. Here are a few examples of how others are using them.
You can also watch this BBC. Click interview on YouTube.

How will Google see them?
If you add them to your website, the search engines will see that your pages have changed, and that you are updating pages. The search engine will see a new image and index it accordingly. At some point soon, the search engines will likely recognize QR codes and possibly index the content in them.

Will your customers use them?
Today, few may use them, but those that do will certainly appreciate your tech knowledge, and those that don’t will certainly be inquisitive, which may open the door for conversation and a potential sale. Those that do use QR codes will definitely have a high tech know-how and may be more receptive to your presence on the web, your Twitter presence, Facebook, MySpace, YouTube etc.

How could you use a QR code?
Your business, no matter how small or large, could use QR codes in a number of ways. You might auto generate one next to every product on your web site containing all the product details, the number to call and the URL link to the page so they can show their friends on their cell phone. You could add one to your business card containing your contact details so its easy for someone to add you to their contacts on their cell phone.

Add them to any print advertising, t-shirts, coffee mugs, flyers, posters, invites, TV ads etc containing:

  • Product details
  • Contact details
  • Offer details
  • Event details
  • Competition details
  • A coupon
  • Twitter, Facebook, Google+ Brand Pages
  • A link to your YouTube video and much more
