By now we've all seen, if not scanned, a QR code. But did you know that you don't need to be a corporate conglomerate to benefit from them in business or in life?
The QR code has become widely recognized as an effective and innovative communication tool. Capable of marrying the physical with the digital, these 2D codes provide compelling reasons and applications for implementation. However, while QR code scans rise exponentially (increasing 1200% in Q4 of 2010), many people are unaware of how easily they can be created and utilized for personal or small business use.
The free QR Code Generator can be used to create multiple types of codes. The most popular code resolve is to contact information. Making a QR code on barcode.com is easy. Simply type your information into the fields provided and the Generator will produce a QR code that when scanned by any Android or iPhone smartphone will automatically populate the contact information in the phone's interface, adding it to the scanner's address book. This type of QR code is often seen incorporated into business cards. Another popular QR code created by the Generator stores the SSID, password and network type for a WiFi connection. Other types of QR codes created by the Generator include those that resolve to a phone number, email address or URL. All that is required to create any of these codes is typing information into the field provided and clicking a button.
