What is a QR Code?
A QR Code is a 2-dimensional matrix (a square with marks or dots within each square) that represents a URL. You use the URL to access a website within the app. In order to access the contents of the web page, you need to also have an internet connection and an e-mail address associated with your account.
What are QR codes used for?
There are many ways to use QR codes. You can have QR codes for school teachers, QR codes for business, QR codes for inventory management and marketing purposes. They can be read by smartphones, as well as other devices that use cameras, scanners or touch screens. This allows you to quickly find businesses in your area easily which will help you make new friends and socialize more effectively.
There are many businesses that have QR codes on their websites and it’s helpful to use them so they will remember who you are when they need an order delivered the next time they’re in your neighborhood.
There are also many companies that offer advertising with their QR codes. You can take advantage of this opportunity and have your brand advertised, even if you have a small budget. Many websites are interested in having their QR code in the first page of search results, so it’s possible to get a lot of exposure throughout the world’s biggest countries by paying for a small amount of advertisement.
With social networks and smartphones, people now prefer to communicate with phone numbers rather than email and messaging services because it is easier, more convenient and free. However, some of these services don’t allow people to send images or videos over the phone nor does it have a chat feature.

What other way can you use QR codes:
Whether you’re looking for a way to improve safety, promote your business, or simply impress friends and family members with your technological prowess, this article will provide the best way for you to use QR codes.
We’ll start by exploring how using a QR code as a business card can be beneficial as well as just look cool. If you have a website or social media following for your business, you might want to consider generating a QR code for your card. This gives your card a unique identifier that will be easy for people to scan on their phones and will link them directly to your website or social media account. The benefits of linking multiple accounts can be seen in the Farmville example above; someone who scans the QR code on her farm truck gets access not only to her Facebook page but also her Twitter page, where she can easily get in contact with Leila’s Farm.
A second use of QR codes — one that is often overlooked — is creating an easy way for people to find your contact information. If you are one of the many people who hate writing down personal information, or give out their phone numbers reluctantly, QR codes can allow you to “hide” your contact information in places that aren’t obvious. For example, you could use a QR code to host your phone number along with links to social media sites and your website. Then, instead of giving someone a piece of paper that they might lose, you can simply tell them to scan the code on your shirt with their phone!
There are also some interesting ways in which businesses and educators can utilize QR Codes. Many teachers have found success using QR Codes as an alternative to traditional worksheets. For example, you could use QR Codes to create jeopardy style games for your students. If you are looking for a unique way to promote your business, QR codes that connect back to your Facebook or Twitter profile may be the key. If you want to organize a group of people, QR codes can link them all together so that they can easily communicate with each other. They are also a great way to exchange information within small groups.
Finally, if you need an easy way to get in contact with someone when there is no cell phone service, using a QR code as an emergency contact card might be a good idea. You could also include an emergency contact number for your significant other or family members that are not fluent in English. If people remember to bring their phones with them, they can use a QR code to quickly contact you when they are in trouble!
A couple of things to keep in mind:
1.) Some QR Codes may have multiple links. Just scan the first one you see (that appears when you are scanning a QR Code within the app or on an image. There is no need to scan a second link unless you wish. Scanning will immediately take you there and if it doesn’t work then that’s another link…just keep scanning until it does work.
- ) You don’t need to launch the app to scan a QR Code.
