21 Ways to Use QR Codes in your Business

I saw this list of 21 ways to use QR codes in your business posted on a resources page for Collin County Black Chamber of Commerce in Texas.  It is such a good list, I decided to repost it for our blog readers.  Thanks to the author, SK Technical Services for putting it together and sharing it on the internet.

QR (Quick Response) Codes are similar to a bar code, but they allow a smart phone to go directly to a web page without having to type in the web page address, also called a URL.  Since it is difficult to do a lot of typing on a smart phone, QR Codes are a great time saver and error preventer, that help people find you.   Here are 21 ways you can start using them in your business today.
