What is a QR Code:
QR codes are similar to the barcodes you see in stores. They’re machine-scannable images that can be read instantly using a Smartphone camera. Every QR code is made up of a number of black squares and dots, which all represent different information.
Where would you use a QR Code:
In a nutshell, you may utilize a QR code almost anywhere. Some of the most frequent ways to employ a QR code include on your business card, brochure, brochure rack card, Facebook cover photo, YouTube channel backdrop, and even inside clothing if you have team t-shirts to direct people to your opt-in page. You get the picture that there are an infinite number of applications for this technology.
The majority of people browse the internet on their Smartphones, and this is where QR codes come in handy. Keep in mind that QR codes will not work on computers. In order to scan the QR code, you will need a Smartphone.
You can create a QR code even if you are using the free version of Canva. For example, let’s say you want to make a flyer for an event. You could put a QR code on it that takes viewers directly from their phones to your website.
