How to use Image Gallery QR Codes
Image Gallery QR Codes are very simple to use. Paste the scan code inside the store, on the product or place it on print marketing material or use it on
your website, newsletter and emails.
- Additional Product Information: Having an Image Gallery QR code on the product tag allows businesses to
disseminate additional information that the customer may find useful. For instance, if a product is
multi-purpose, there may not be enough illustrations on the product packaging to demonstrate all its uses. In
this case, having an image gallery can be quite helpful for the customer and drive more sales. In addition to
this use-case, an Image Gallery QR Code can also be used to furnish the customer with illustration on how to use
and care for the product properly. This also helps to keep the product packaging minimalistic which is
attractive to millennials.
- Product Bundling: E-commerce websites recommend products to shoppers based on what other people have
bought. Using the recommendation system, Amazon’s sales went up by 29%. You can achieve this in retail stores
with an Image Gallery QR Code. Allow consumers to scan the QR code to unlock what other people have bought. So,
if a customer is looking at inflatable devices, they can get recommended a good air pump.
- Talking Mannequins: Place QR codes on mannequins to reveal the latest trends in fashion and how a coat or
dress can be styled with other products in the store. Businesses can even use customer-generated content to show
potential customers to allow them to see what the product would look like even before they try it on.
- Virtual Tours: Imagine potential buyers walking or driving by a house on sale. With an Image Gallery QR
Code on the ‘For Sale’ sign, they can instantly scan the QR code to get a sneak peek at the house. Real-estate
agents and buyers can both save a ton of effort and time with these virtual tours ensuring high conversion
- Smart Signs: Any real estate signage can be turned into a smart sign with QR codes. Say, a potential
