Pick the right QR Code size
Determine the optimal size of your QR Code using this formula: QR Code size = Distance between the QR Code and the mobile device/10.
For example, if the distance between your mobile device and the QR Code is 30 cm, the size of your QR Code should be at least 3 cm.
Add a clear call-to-action
Add a call-to-action frame around the QR Code and increase the chances of end-users scanning it.
Use action-oriented language, such as "Scan to learn more" or "Scan for a discount," to encourage end-users to engage with your content.
Select a suitable format
For smaller print materials, such as business cards or brochures, PNG or JPG formats work well.
Choose a scalable vector format like SVG or EPS for larger media such as billboards—allowing the QR Code to retain its scannability at any size without losing quality.
Choose the right placement
Place your QR Code on a flat surface at eye level to ensure it's visible to the end-user and is easily scannable.
Placing it on uneven surfaces or in poor lighting can distort the QR Codes and affect its scannability.
Test your QR Code
Before using your social media QR Codes, test them to avoid broken links or misdirections.
Use different mobile devices to scan your QR Codes and ensure that they link to the intended content.
