Have you seen or used QR codes? Those black and white squares that take you to a website on your smart phone? Some uses are just for the novelty of it (have you seen one go past on a bus?), but there are practical ways you might incorporate a QR code into your print publications, bulletin or signage.
The key is that the link the QR code opens must be mobile phone friendly.
Here are a few ideas for using QR codes:
- Put a QR code(or codes) in the bullitin that take members of the congregation to your calendar, to the sermon scripture or staff contact information.
- Put a QR code outside the sanctuary that takes congregants to the order of worship or a list of prayer concerns.
- Put a QR code in a meeting room that links to the agenda.
Creating a QR code:
Once you have a mobile-friendly webpage chosen to share, copy the link. Use an online QR code generator like http://qrcode.kaywa.com/ to create your code. Then save and use it in print!
The QR code to the North Georgia Conference website is above! Feel free to use it in your church publications!
