Some might question the reason why we would want to customize their QR Codes because they do not see the reason why we should waste time, money and resources. This, to newbies, is a very common thing. It is a QR Code, it is supposed to be this way, or they might even think that customizing their own QR Code is going to render the QR Code ineffective. I don’t blame them for thinking so but here are some points one may want to consider when launching a QR Code campaign.

Even if you are unable to recall when, where or what happened during the first encounter, the most important thing is that you have got that person thinking just a little bit more about you.
This is how branding works and I think no matter how small a corporation and company is, be it a one-man-show or a large international brand name, should put an effort into. You want an everlasting image that will work in your favor the very next time you want that person to make a choice between you and your competitor.
Customizing your own QR Code gives you that edge over everyone else….or least when you are pitched against your competitor.
