Why using a QR Code? What is it?

QRCode Visual Link website

If you have a Smartphone, install an application like i-nigma and scan this image with it. No need to type the address, it redirects you quickly to Visual Link website.

This is a QR Code: a Quick Response code. It is very popular in Japan and we believe it has a great potential in Australia, with the amazing penetration of Smartphones. It takes only few seconds to scan a code and people now always carry their phone with them: connecting from physical to digital is now quick and efficient.

Give value and increase your visibility

With QR codes, you can integrate digital in your print material: this opens many opportunities to give extra value to your target and to increase your impact by offering interaction. On top of the information you already put on your printed material, your QR code can offer more information, a discount, an extra service, an easy access to content… or save time for your target.
