Fashion Advertising Tip – How To Utilise QR Codes For Better Response

Using QR codes in your magazine, newspaper, or other press advertising is a good idea. QR codes make it easier for a consumer to visit your Facebook page or website (they don’t have to type the web address into a computer).

However – of the things I noticed with a lot of fashion advertising lately is that the QR code is placed by itself – with no text nearby to explain what happens when the code is scanned.

So as a tip for you to get a better response from your fashion advertising – write something like… “Scan this code to visit our Facebook page and discover the latest European fashions."

Explain where the code will take them and the emotional reason (benefit) for them to take this action.

The Ralph Lauren fashion advertisement above is a good design example of how to make the code and the instructions stand out.

QR TIP2: Don’t make the QR code take the consumer to your website home page or your Facebook home – take them specifically to the promotion page as advertised.

QR TIP3: Also this promotion web page needs to be mobile friendly – don’t force your potential customers to have to "squint" at tiny text.

Overall QR codes if done right will increase the response to your advertising.
