QR-Marketing's best QR code example in advertising

1. Smart QR codes create brand loyalty

QR marketing idea to increase customer loyalty – tracking product expiry

Creams, cosmetics, eye drops, nasal spray or antibiotics: They all have a limited best-before date. Often, you can see a small symbol on the packaging indicating how long the products can be kept. But when did someone first open the sunscreen, the nose drops or the makeup? As a rule, he or she doesn't know exactly. For consumers, sure this is a problem; but for companies, it's an opportunity to win customers by adding a value to their products: By simply scanning the QR Tag on the product or packaging, he or she can track the individual service life. This is not only practical - but also increases brand loyalty, customer experience and engagement.  

Here's how this smart QR code example works: The smart QR code on the product or packaging leads to a landing page where consumers enter the individual date on which they opened the product. It's particularly easy: the pre-filled field with "today's" date can be clicked - and that's it. On the next visit, not only the opening date is displayed, but also the expected service life based on it. 

What the QR Tag does: The unique ID of the QR Tag can be used to precisely identify first-time and repeat visitors, and content can be played out in a personalized manner.

2. Smart QR codes as Sweepstakes

QR marketing idea for generating more leads

All brands out there use them: sweepstakes.

Often, you can see long instructions all over the packaging to explain the rules and incentives to participate – space that could easily be used for greater brand awareness and visual attractions. To attribute participants later to single products, consumers previously had to manually enter a number.

For consumers it's a hustle. For companies, it's an opportunity to win customers by adding a value to their products: By simply scanning the QR Tag on the product or packaging, he or she can enter the draw without manually adding a serial number. This is not only practical - but also increases conversion rates.

Here's how this smart QR code example works: The QR Tag on the product or packaging leads to a landing page where consumers enter a draw by leaving contact data for the chance to win a prize.

This is what the QR Tag does: The unique ID of the QR Tag can be used to precisely identify the product that was scanned. Therefore, users can enter without filling in an ID manually to enter a draw. Moreover, thanks to QR Tags additional instructions can be hidden behind a simple Tag that can be changed anytime. For further information, book a free demo.

3. Easy to customize landing pages only with QR Tags

QR marketing idea for campaign optimization - ongoing A/B testing

Who has not experienced this? Scanning a QR code and landing on a 404-error page - and not on an appealing landing page.

The reason why this happens is because the URL of a landing page cannot be changed for (static) QR codes. The situation is different with our dynamic QR Tags: With a few clicks, stored URL addresses can be exchanged - so that the user always lands on the right address.  

In this QR code example, The customer scans the smart QR code or the so called ‘QR Tag’ on the product or packaging and is redirected to a landing page URL that depends on predefined characteristics: for example, people who purchased a product in Munich see a different landing page than those in Hamburg, children see a different one than adults, or fans of decorative cosmetics see a different one than those of shaving gel. Depending on the success, the URL and landing page can be changed at any time without having to print a new tag. 

Here's how this smart QR code example works: You can further even create two or more separate landing pages with the same dynamic QR code and find out which design or product performs better using our inclusive cloud analytics.

This is what the QR Tag does : only with dynamic QR Tags can information that has been stored once be adjusted; with static QR codes, it is not possible to make changes afterwards.

5. with QR Tags we play multiplayer games

QR marketing idea for Customer loyalty - Added value 

Playing games is fun - for everyone! If you can play a game with just one click, compete with your friends and maybe even win something, you will gladly accept this offer. At least if it is easy. The time-consuming registration process or an annoying media disruption keeps customers from taking advantage of such offers. But with the QR Tag, that's no longer necessary. 

Here's how this smart QR code example works: The QR Tag leads to an online game that gets consumers to engage with the brand and spend time with it. 

This is what the QR Tag does: The unique ID enables several players to play the same game at the same time, to compete against each other and to play together. And they can do so without registering.
