QR codes have many uses, they act as a quick way to direct the mobile generation to your content. Whether it’s a video explaining a piece of artwork in a gallery or a booking form that can be used to generate leads for your business, there are no limits to what a QR code can be used for.
You can create a QR code to link to your website, a video QR code or audio QR code. Say something about yourself, show texts and promote special offers – plus anything else you can think of!
The problem is that while QR codes can do a lot of things, they can be difficult to get right.
The more information you put into a QR code, the more complicate it is going to be, and so the harder it will be to read..Some QR readers have a hard time reading complex QR codes with too much information.
Static QR codes hold all their data on the face of the QR code, particularly when you have created it with a free qr generator. This is the main difference between static and dynamic.
Static QR codes can’t be updated
If you want to change something about your static QR code, you’ll need to create another one from scratch, since the information is held in the QR code itself, there is no way to change it without creating a new one, especially if you have printed it on business cards, flyers and signage.
Conversely a dynamic QR code can always be updated, since the data is held on a server, the link to the data never changes, but by changing the content with a QR creation tool you can keep the same code, without the need to reprint anything.
If you want to take full advantage of everything QR codes have to offer, it makes sense to use a dynamic QR code generator. Instead of being held on the QR code, with a dynamic QR your information is held on a server instead. The only information that needs to kept in the code itself is the server link, this can then be directed to your website, Facebook page, email address.
The uses for QR codes are only as limited as you want them to be. When you have created your dynamic QR code, you can put as much information as you like.
You can keep copies of you ContactQR codes on your phone and choose the one you want friends to scan to their phone and save straight to contacts. When you want to go ‘large’ you can take or send your exclusive QR code to a Printshop to get baseball caps and sweatshirts made – or better still, order some for a group or a club.
