Why location QR Codes are effective

Apart from catering to consumer needs, location QR Codes are an efficient way to get more customers into the store.

Retargeting online on Facebook and Google

What happens when consumers see your print advertisement but do not convert? With online advertisements, it is easy to set up retargeting and up those conversion rates but normal advertising material doesn’t have the same features. With location QR Codes, businesses can leverage print advertising and retarget consumers online. This is possible with Beaconstac’s intuitive dashboard that only requires you to input the Facebook Pixel ID or Google Conversion ID and start retargeting every consumer that scans the location QR Code.

Analyze and track scans

Beaconstac’s advanced analytics allow businesses to see not only how many consumers have scanned the QR Code but also the time, location and data of the scan. This allows marketers to fine-tune campaigns in real time.
