Hi guys,

I come up with the design of QR-Code that has its Headline to attract people to scan it. The Annotated QR Code is working and scan-able.

What do you think about it? Will it be effective?

Here is some of my designs..
Design 1:


Design 2:


Design 3:

  • An annotated code has the advantage - it is like a hot button in a hot button - more attraction, more response rate -

    Still doesnt help the fact that people dont know what to do with the QR code...

    I'd say a Diagram with someon pointing their phone at the Code like this is best :



    You cant expect people to scan something with out BLANTANT instruction and explanation near it....

      Hi bonn,

      Your solution does not help with the fact that not all smartphones are installed with software to scan QR Code.

      I wonder how to 'educate' people out there on how to use QR code...

      I think certain age groups are more savvy with QR code.. e.g. the teenagers.

    Rahmat,

    What a great idea. I can see a big benefit when showing this to store owners. Let them know you could setup a certain quantity of different ones for a set price and it would be easy for them to rotate for different seasons.

    For example, let's say your client has a party store and their largest season is halloween. They may want to give a smaller discount then because they know they are going to have a lot of customers in their store, but in the months when traffic count is low they could offer a larger discount. It would be just a matter of changing out the QR codes being displayed.

      Hi Michael,

      Do you mean to have different headline for different season?
      Yeah, I think you can do that.

      It's like changing the headline of your sales letter... fast and easy

    What program did you use to get the image inside the QR code?

    Just a though, say you had a business card and on the back side is your QR code, maybe text saying "To scan this, search QR Code Scanner on your smartphone and download app"

    Most people don't realize that upwards of 30% of a QR Code can be obscured by an image and the QR code will still be accruately scan-able.
