Scanova customer Victor Armendariz Records Manager Miami Beach

Scanova has helped secure our permit drawings and documents with the use of a custom password protected QR Code. This process has eliminated our laborious task of perforating our documents and thus, improving our efficiency with regards to the permitting process. I especially like the feature to track the scans and the ability to tie into Google Analytics. What impresses me the most is their quick response time for technical issues or questions.

We have just started working with Scanova and already we are delighted with the ease of use of the interface and the excellent customer service offered. The fact that we can add branding to the QR codes and that they are dynamic were essential aspects of us choosing to go with Scanova over other same service providers. We are very much so looking forward to utilising the campaign analysis tools also offered.

Scanova customer Nick Gomersall Fast Close

Scanova has helped FastClose to create an innovated marketing campaign. We designed a post card with the stamp being the barcode from Scanova. When scanned, this linked to a demo of our software. It worked really well and we are very happy with the result and Scanova’s technology.

QR Code Best Practices

Tips to increase scans by over 100%

Add design to QR code

Add Design to QR Codes

People often confuse plain black-and-white marketing QR Codes with barcodes used for operational use cases. By adding design and branding, give life to your QR Codes and make them visually appealing. Not only are designer QR Codes pleasing to look at but they also do not mess up creative designs on print media.

Personalized QR Codes can attract upto 50-200% more scans than standard black-and-white QR Codes.

Add Call-to-Action Text

If you are planning to add a QR Code to your print promotions, you should add call-to-action (CTA) text that informs the target audience of what the QR Code does. For example: "Scan to Watch Trailer", "Scan to Donate", "Scan to Read Full Article", "Scan for Details", "Follow on Instagram", etc. Only curious users will scan a QR Code if there is no CTA.

If you want your target audience to scan the QR Code, give them an incentive. Pro Tip: Add CTA image in the centre of the QR Code if you're short of space.

Add call to action to QR code
Ensure size and scannability of QR Code

Ensure Size and Scannability

It is frustrating for the users if they have to point their cameras on a QR Code and nothing happens. Scannability of a QR Code depends on size, color contrast, scanning distance, and lighting. For example, the minimum size of a QR should at least be 1 inch or 3 cm or 115 pixels (in width and height).

Always test the QR Code before placing it on your promotional material. Pro Tip: Use Dynamic QR Codes that convert lengthy URLs into short URLs to make the QR Code simpler and less dense.

Ensure Accessibility

A QR Code can only be scanned if it is easily accessible to the target audience. You need to ensure both safe scanning distance and easy access to mobile internet. For example, it will be difficult to get scans on QR Codes that are placed on moving vehicles, far-off billboards, and bottom of printed material reaching ground-level. Similarly, promotions placed in areas with limited access to fast mobile network/Wifi—inflight magazines and underground subway stations—will also get no scans. So make it easy for your target audience to reach the QR Code.

Ensure Accessibility Qr code
Link to mobile optimized content

Link to Mobile-Optimized Content

Nobody scans a QR Code using a laptop. QR Codes are meant to be scanned by mobile devices. If the landing page is not mobile-optimized, it will definitely be the end of the customer's engagement.

With increasing use of mobile applications, consumers are used to mobile-optimized UIs. And that is what they expect from QR Codes–an easy mobile viewing experience. Pro Tip: Create a custom mobile page using Scanova if you don't have one

What is a QR Code?

A QR Code is a 2D barcode that is encoded with information and can be decoded using a QR Code scanning app on a smartphone. Most smartphones are now equipped with a QR Code scanning feature or app and hence, QR Codes are now popularly used in marketing, payments, and authentication use cases. Typically, a QR Code image—encoded with a website link—is added to promotional material to engage target customers.
