Can QR codes help your bricks and mortar business?

Shel Holtz has a great post about the current and potential uses of QR codes for retail businesses.

That reminded me of my experience a few months ago at my local Best Buy. I was looking for the furniture on which you set a large flat-panel television, but the cards attached to each floor sample contained woefully little information. What they did include was a QR code. I scanned the code, which took me to a Best Buy page that contained a lot more information.

Followers of this blog will remember that Beth and the great design team at China Shop here in Adelaide designed my new business cards with a QR code as the stand-out feature – certainly the cards have proved popular and a conversation starter.

Have a read of Shel’s great post and see why you should seriously consider adding QR codes to your inventory of communication tools.

    Lee, check out these cool wearable QR code patches. Pretty cool. I am not affiliated with the company in any way … just stumbled across them and thought they were cool.
