Most of you must have noticed QR codes spread onto visiting cards, magazine ads, billboards and the backs of products like wildfire – and not without reason. QR codes not only contain URL links to websites and social media sites, but also text-based information such as contact numbers, addresses and much more.
Not sure what a QR code looks like? A QR code looks a lot like a barcode, with the exception that it consists of an array of black and white boxes put together in a square shape. It’s quite easy to generate a QR code as it’s’ absolutely free and you can simply choose from a multitude of sites to go ahead and create one.
Now, the next obvious question is that how does a QR code work. It’s actually quite simple. All one needs is a Smartphone and an internet connection – which most people have in today’s day and age. It takes only a minute for anyone to download a QR reader app to their Smartphone and scan the image in front of them – and voila!
