El marketing con códigos QR es cada vez más habitual: campañas de fidelización que permiten participar en promociones, encuestas de satisfacción de clientes, información de productos, supermercados vituales, información turística, etc.
La infografía que taremos hoy incluye estadísticas interesantes de códigos QR. Quizá el número más llamativo es el porcentaje de aumentos de códigos QR, que va en la línea de otros estudios como el del segundo trimestre de 2013 de Scanlife en el que se observa la tendencia claramente ascendente en el uso de estos códigos. Aunque Enrique Dans se haya hecho eco de la muerte de los códigos QR en su blog, parece que están aquí para quedarse los códigos QR están más vigentes que nunca.
En un año, el número de empresas que incluyen los códigos QR en su estrategia de marketing o van a incluirlo se ha triplicado.
También es interesante observar que, pese a que la cuota de mercado de Android es muy superior a la de iPhone, en número de escaneos de códigos QR están muy equilibrados. ¿Será que los usuarios de iPhone navegan más e interactúan más con él?
Mobile marketing has reached the point of explosion, and it is now perfectly clear to most marketers and businesses that taking part in it and using its techniques is no longer an option. It’s a necessity.

Strategy must be discussed from the ground, up, and it should address the following components:
• Mobile web – optimization of the original website or the development of a new site designed specifically for the smaller screen.
• SMS (short message service) – also known as text messaging, which can send discounts, contests, and other promotions to consumers, regardless of whether they have smartphones or feature phones.
• Mobile ads – these are typically a hard sell, but in specific circumstances can be highly beneficial.
• QR codes – two dimensional barcodes help to bring the real world and mobile world together and are exceptionally inexpensive to create, implement, and use.

According to an article from the Huffington Post, “special panels have been installed at First World War memorials enabling the public to use their smartphones to learn about the history of the service personnel who lost their lives.”
Over 100 panels are being places across the UK as educational tools to shed light on the events of WWI. The article goes on to say that, “when scanned with a smartphone, the QR code provides access to information including personal stories of some of the casualties buried or commemorated at the memorial.”
Roughly 100 years after the first World War, this QR Code campaign is meant to offer an effective and long-lasting educational facet to the war memorials. Prince Edward was quoted as saying, “it is a powerful means of combining traditional methods with new technology to ensure we never forget.”
These efforts by the British government signal more widespread acceptance for QR Codes and various mobile technologies – a bridge from historic events to our smartphones.
