Dynamic Video QR Codes

Dynamic video QR Code

What if the link to your video expires or the video on your channel gets taken down? Instead of having static content on QR Codes that you have no control over, use dynamic QR Codes that allow you to change the URL in real time.

Imagine you upload a new video on your channel every Wednesday. One single QR Code can be updated to display a new video. Several YouTubers also have their own line of merchandise. In this case, adding a QR Code can guarantee constant engagement.

For businesses that send out newsletters frequently, instead of creating and uploading a new QR Code every month, the same QR Code can be used.

How to Create Dynamic Video QR Codes

Creating a dynamic video QR Code with Beaconstac is easy.

  1. Create a QR Code

    Enter the URL of the video. Download your QR Code and use it offline on posters, flyers, brochures or online in emails, newsletters and websites.
  2. Attach a Markdown Card

    This is an optional step but gives you far more control over what the end user sees. Instead of just watching a video, you can also add a CTA button, more images and customize it as per your needs. Markdown cards are essentially short landing pages that can be used in lieu of a website.
