QR Codes

Posted on Nov 8, 2011

Ever seen these weird little images and wonder what they are? Well they are called Quick Response Codes or QR Codes for short. We can set one of these up for you. But what do they do? Well if someone has a QR Coe reader on their smart phone (which all smart phones have the ability to download a reader from many different sources for free), they can take a picture of this image and it will automatically take them to your website. It can even take then to a specific page on your website (like maybe the specials menu). It is a very convenient way for people to be able to access your website quickly and easily.

Now of course if they are going to be accessing your website from a mobile phone, you are going to want a mobile optimized website. If you decide to have us build you your mobile optimized site, we will include one of these QR Codes for you absolutely free.

Some 58% of those users scanned a QR or bar code from their home, while 39% scanned from retail stores; 53% of the 14 million users were men between the ages of 18 and 34
