They gained more popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic due to their contactless, scannable functionality. Restaurants and bars quickly adapted the easy method of QR codes in place of traditional menus to avoid the continued spread of the disease.


And they aren’t going away anytime soon. According to Forbes, it’s predicted that 99.5 million people in the U.S. will use QR codes by 2025.

But Why Should Businesses Use QR Codes?


The best reason why you should be using QR codes on promotional products is that it cuts your time in the marketing funnel in half.

GOOGLE Puzzle with QR Code

The best way to explain it is that you are digitally placing your prospect right where they want them to be. Whether that be to a company website, a how-to video, or a business social media account, they can link any URL to a QR code.


Some of my favorite web pages to link to a QR code are:

• A press release or white paper about an achievement or goal

• A hype video about an upcoming event or product release

• A social media campaign where my company gave back to our local community

• A company’s social media page

• An email signup, where I can subscribe prospects to a targeted email marketing campaign


QR codes can increase traffic to your webpage, client engagement and increase your lead generation through first-party data.
