QR codes (Quick Response codes) offer a tremendous,QR code marketing  for Homebuilders low-cost marketing opportunity for homebuilders. Unlike bar codes, which only encode data on a horizontal plane, QR codes encode data both horizontally and vertically in a grid of squares. Typically, QR codes are used to point mobile devices to a specific landing page, such as a social media page, email sign-up form, video, or special offer.

QR codes can be used to bridge the gap between your online and offline homebuilder marketing campaigns. While online marketing is effective, it generally only reaches potential homebuyers when they are on their computers at home or in their offices. On the other hand, traditional marketing via brochures, print ads, and commercials only reaches homebuyers when they’re away from their computers and is much harder to monitor and measure.

QR codes allow homebuilders to create interactive experiences for homebuyers, no matter where they happen to be. You can put QR codes on the following marketing materials:

  • Model home signage
  • Press releases
  • Brochures
  • Print ads
  • Business cards
  • Door signs
  • Direct mail
  • Price sheets
  • Email signature
  • Flyers

Here are 6 ways that homebuilders can use QR codes to open a dialogue and encourage prospects to initiate contact.
