What is a QR Code? How does it work?

QR Code stands for Quick Response Codes. QR codes are 2-dimensional barcodes that when scanned open up a link, add contacts, send SMSes, make calls among other things.

You will often find QR codes on product packaging, marketing material such as billboards, posters and signage or on direct emails and websites.

To understand how a QR code works, let's take an example of a real-time bus schedule at a bus station.

1. A well-designed appealing poster at the bus station has a QR code.

There are two types of QR codes. Static and Dynamic. With Beaconstac's QR code generator, the guide to creating QR codes is easier than ever!

2. Dynamic - The second type of QR code, where the information can be changed, prior and post-printing. The same QR code can be used to share different information, at different time intervals, almost making it seem recyclable.

How to create a QR code?

Creating a QR code is pretty straightforward. Here are the steps to get started -

  • a. Select a QR code generator that suits your business needs

    Other requirements from a QR code generator include, customizations to align with your brand, campaign management for static and dynamic QR codes, and most importantly performance tracking.

  • b. Choosing the right type of QR code to get started with

    Some might argue that ultimately all kinds of QR codes can be generated using a basic URL QR code type. However, that’s not the most optimal way. QR codes should initiate an action on scanning rather than just navigating to a landing page. The distinct QR code types that initiate different actions on scanning are - URL, text message, email, vCard and phone call.

    In addition to the basic QR code types listed above, other types like app download QR code, image QR code, MP3 QR code and more, add more relevance and intuitiveness to the QR code. So choose the type carefully :)

  • c. Fill in the URL or other input fields

    Once you decide which type is best suited for your use case, a form opens up on the QR code generator. Depending on what type of QR code you are looking to generate, the number of input fields differ. Fill in the information that corresponds to the campaign you are looking to promote.

  • d. Make a choice between static and dynamic

    Did you like many others went ahead with the default selection of static QR codes and missed the dynamic part? Dynamic QR codes are extremely powerful for businesses. It allows business owners to send time-based campaigns when scanned. (Learn more about it)

  • f. Download the QR code in a format that suits your use-case and TEST!

    QR code use cases range from business cards to posters to billboards to digital medium. The choice of QR code format should totally depend on what you intend to use QR codes for. Here are our recommendations based on best practices -

    •   - PNG format: Suitable for digital medium, such as website, social media posts, ad campaigns on third party sites or self sites, call-to-action banners on blogs, email signatures and more.
    •   - EPS or SVG format: Suitable for print medium, such as on product packaging, bills, business cards, flyers, banners, posters, billboards, labels and stickers.

    Once you download the QR code and use it as desired, use your phone’s in-built QR code scanner or a third party QR code scanner to test the QR code. Here’s how to scan your QR code with an Android or iOS smartphone.
