QR codes are growing in popularity, taking advantage of the mobile revolution to engages with consumers, drive interaction and generate business. A QR code is a way to display content such as a web page, piece of text or initate a phone call. But it can also be used to show videos too! Such as a video trailer for a film, a discussion or explanation of a particular product etc.. Video is far more engaging than simple text and with ever more powerful smartphones, almost anyone can start watching your video in an instant!
People often get turned off by massive blocks of text explaining your business or products you offer, so why not grab their attention with a video QR code?
If you’re new to QR codes then start by choosing a QR code generation tool such as QR Crazy. First make your video about anything you want the world to see – events, holidays, happy birthday, office parties, celebrations, company messages, practical demonstrations, sport, or even something for You’ve Been Framed… you get the idea? Go to your YouTube video and simply copy the URL (web address) from the search bar and paste it into the box when you make your web address QR code. It really is that easy. Add a suitable call-to-action from your designer page and you’re ready to go.

‘So, just like that?’ I hear you saying. And yes, it really is. Once you have designed and created your exclusive QR code from your Premium account you can either have added the YouTube video link as part of the process, or you can go into your account and edit the website URL to point to your video. With some QR generators you can even update the link to your video without designing a new QR code! When the content is no longer relevant, you can produce your next YouTube video and edit the weblink from your account but use the same QR code.
