QR Stuff New Feature: QR Codes Templates

Posted: September 14th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: General, QRStuff Features | No Comments »

QR Stuff introduces a new feature on the website which allows users to select ready-made templates from a gallery and apply them to their QR codes. You don’t need to start from scratch when designing the QR code when you have the various designs we prepared for you.

These templates are available according to the data type of the code you are generating. For instance, QR codes for Facebook Like buttons now have pre-designed options in the template gallery, one with the Facebook logo at the centre. See other templates for Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, SMS and more.

This feature is a standard part of the QR Stuff paid subscriber feature set and is available to all full subscribers. Become a paid subscriber now.

How To Use This Feature

1. First, log in to your QR Stuff subscriber account. Select the data type from which you want to create the QR code. Fill out the information and required fields.

2. In the Style section, click the “Select A QR Code Template” button. You can then select a particular template or design that you want to use.

3. See the changes and your chosen template in the preview section at the right side of the QR code generator. Click the “Download QR Code” button and your QR code is ready for use.

Important: Using shapes, light colours or a logo in your QR Code may reduce its scan reliability. Please test your QR code before publishing. If at any point you want to go back to change the template or design, feel free to click the “Select A QR Code Template” button once more and see the changes live in the preview section.

Editing And Styling The QR Code Template

Once you have selected a template for the QR code, you can still customize it based on the style you want. To do this, head over to the Design panel by clicking “Style Your QR Code.” Simply follow the same steps when designing the QR code. Edit according to dot colour, dot shape, corner colour, and corner shape.

Here is an example that shows what could be done to the QR code template created above using our QR Code Styling feature. Our styling interface allows you to make your QR code more visually distinctive, perhaps more intuitive as well.

QR Codes For Free Landing Pages

Posted: August 2nd, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: General, QR Codes Use Cases | No Comments »

QR codes can be used for your websites. A good landing page is one of the secrets to digital marketing success. Landing pages encourage customers to sign up for a deal, participate in a promotion or subscribe to offers. This is known as a “call-to-action” (CTA).

Google Sites is a free website builder that lets you effortlessly create and share landing pages with your customers. This tool makes it easier for a user to lay out the pages without the need for coding. With QR Stuff, you can connect the page you created using Google Sites through the use of QR codes.

How To Create Landing Pages In Google Sites

The new Google Sites makes building your landing page a whole lot easier, allowing you to accomplish more projects in the long run. It provides a ready-made platform that consists of a drag and drop feature for all the materials you need for your digital marketing campaigns.

Landing pages and their layouts depend on the type of web page being created. A landing page can either be a CTA to subscribe, a sign-up form or an invitation to a specific promotion a business offers. We used the first option as an example, a CTA for a subscription.

1. Get Started. To get started on your Google Sites landing page, click the plus sign button located on the lower right-hand corner of your screen. You’ll be directed to an Untitled page, so you must enter a unique name to keep track of your page. 

2. Select Your Theme And Add Content. Select any theme in the Google Sites gallery. You can also choose font styles, colours and backgrounds within the theme. Then, click “Insert” or double-click on the portion of the page where you want to add content. You can add text boxes, URLs of other web pages, photos, videos, documents and files from Google Drive or Google Embeds.

   

3. Lay Out The Page. For this example, the layout shows different portions of the page divided into various sections. The header image is separate from the introductory text, main features of the subscription, pricing and further details about the product. It is a blend of text, images, and links.

4. Create Your CTA Link. One of the most important elements of a landing page is the CTA link, and this is what makes it different from other websites out there. An effective landing page contains a single CTA link that users can click on when they are ready to take action. Using Google Sites, this can be created as an image, a block of text, or maybe even a video, that hyperlinks into the subscription page.

5. Publish Your Site. Click “Publish” and be re-directed to a pop-up box where you enter a unique name to the end of your URL. The URL is editable anytime, provided that no other users have registered those particular words in the web domain. Preview your site’s URL to confirm that your site published correctly. There are more functionalities on Google Sites waiting to be explored.

Creating A QR Code For Google Sites Landing Pages

1. Go to https://www.qrstuff.com/?type=websiteurl and have the “Website URL” data type pre-selected from the Data Type section. 

2. In the Content section, enter the Google Sites URL for your landing page.

4. Click the “Download QR Code” button and your landing page QR code is ready for use.

Make It A Bit Fancy

While free users can change the foreground colour of their QR code, paid subscribers have the ability to also change the appearance of the QR code image and embed a logo or image in its centre. Just use the steps outlined above to create your Website URL QR code for Google Sites landing page, and then, before you download your finished QR code, go to the Style section to change its appearance.

Here is an example that shows what could be done to the Website URL QR code created above using our Style section. Our styling interface allows you to make your QR code more visually distinctive and, by embedding a suitable image, perhaps more intuitive as well.
