QR codes seem to be here to stay – will marketers adjust campaigns based on where users are tapping into these codes?

    @allenmireles I scan ’em all the time–mostly to find utterly useless (in the moment) info. Retailers (esp) need training.

      @AnastaciaBrice I think you have a valid point about training, Anastasia. So much training is needed and the need increases. Oy.

      @AnastaciaBrice so the technology is great, but marketers need make the content worthwhile. Have you seen any brands that did it right?

      • AnastaciaBrice

        @MarissaMcN BestBuy. They use QR codes to link to addt’l info on products like computers. I was able to bookmark and review at home.
