Why QR Codes Haven’t Had A Great Impact In Commercial Property Marketing

Why QR Codes Haven't Had A Great Impact In Commercial Property Marketing | IUseSocial.com

A few years ago, people were touting QR codes—those crazy, speckled black and white squares—as the greatest thing since email. You couldn’t read a magazine or pass a bus stop without seeing one, and brokers quickly employed them in every phase of commercial property marketing.

Well, now it’s 2014, and the QR code has become Questionably Relevant.

Turns out, scanning a code to get to a webpage wasn’t a revolution in commercial property marketing. In fact, in most cases it was just a plain old waste of time.

QR Codes for the Dead

QR codes sometimes appear in unlikely places, on everyday objects rather than on advertisements or billboards. And even on weird things like on teabags, the backs of Subway employees’ T-shirts, and even on bananas. When the advertising campaign ends or a company nosedives and disappears, the QR code itself may endure on these materials. Given the proliferation of memorialization websites and the use of social networking profiles as mourning spaces, it may come as no surprise that QR codes now appear on headstones, linking graveyard visitors to online tributes to the dead.

Why Job Seekers Aren't Scanning QR Codes

Now that QR codes have been around for a little while now and are fairly prevalent, it feels safe to say that they have not caught on with the general population. In 2012, roughly 20% of people in the U.S. scanned QR codes, according to Pitney Bowes. Maybe it’s just me, but that number probably hasn’t increased much since. I know I haven’t scanned a QR code in that time frame. There is one simple reason for that: The large majority of smartphones do not offer a preloaded QR reader. Users must download a reader from the app store of their choice before being able to scan a QR code – and most users don’t appear willing to make that effort.
