How to create QR codes is a question you must have had on your mind at least once on seeing one.
A Quick response (QR) Code is a scannable, machine readable code which is typically used to store information for easy accessibility and to save time.
While we have been using QR codes for over a decade in our business, especially on business cards to present our contact cards, this post was inspired by a post on Vice describing how hundreds of drones worked together to form a scannable QR code in the sky.
This gives a wide indication of the usefulness and how widespread QR codes are becoming in everyday life.
With the wide adoption of social media and personal mobile gadgets, humans nowadays have greatly reduced attention spans which means to get any results, all marketing communication in the first instance should be catchy, easy to implement and actionable.
