Thanks for the feedback on QR codes. What we’ve heard from those who weighed in this week are that you don’t use them or that they aren’t useful unless they are well executed – providing valuable information or exclusive content or offers.
As Scott pointed out, there is much debate about the usefulness of QR codes in the technology world.
Kyle from the RefreshRT team also noted that if it’s not exclusive content the QR code is leading to, it could be just as quick to use a search engine.
Continue to share your thoughts on QR codes. If you come across examples – good or bad in your opinion – pass them along. We are always looking for ways to connect our print readers with our online content, especially as we offer more mobile products.
And we have more good news to share!
