|The Geekalicious QR Code|
You can use a QR code for anything that has a URL (web address); to drive traffic to a website or blog, as a quick link to any social media profile, to generate immediate discount codes... the list is endless.
You can quickly scan a QR code with your iPhone or smartphone using a barcode scanner application (usually free to download from your app market).
To make your own, head on over to this really easy-to-use QR Code Generator website, enter your web address (URL) and hit "Generate Free". Then choose either of the following options:
- Use the image code provided to insert your QR code directly into a blog post.
- Right click on the QR Code and save to your computer. Upload as an image to your blog post, a widget in your sidebar or use on business cards.
Let me know of any imaginative places you have seen or used QR codes.
