The world of mobile marketing can be overwhelming for already-busy small business owners. But the explosion of smartphone use over the past few years is proof that it’s worth looking at the options.
Use QR Codes to Promote Your Mobile Site
MYQROsites offers a service that allows customers to create mobile sites promoted through a custom generated QR code. You’ve probably seen these already in magazines and other ads – they’re a square, 2-D barcode you can scan with your phone’s camera.
Scanning the QR code sends you directly to a mobile website. The benefit of using QR codes is speed and convenience. “It’s a quicker way to get to information than making someone type in a URL,” said Jon-Mikel Bailey, a principal at Wood Street Inc. and Kicking Apps LLC, which created MYQROsites.
The service allows business owners to manage their mobile sites themselves and upload photos, videos and other content for a monthly fee. It also provides technical support for any issues.
MYQROsites then allows clients to generate QR codes that can be added to marketing materials businesses already use, like postcards, fliers or other advertisements.
