Consumers getting little reward for QR Code use

But are consumers getting value from the effort it takes to scan a barcode and reach the final destination? When asked if they felt scanning a QR code was worthwhile consumers said:

• Always 3%
• Usually 28%
• Sometimes 52%
• Rarely 15%
• Never 2%

Unless marketers show some creativity in the presentation and placement of barcodes, and more importantly offer those who do interact with them something of value as a reward for undertaking the task, consumers will turn off.

"The mere employment of QR codes is not enough to drive consumer engagement and marketing results," said Carol Russell, CEO of Russell Herder. "It is important for marketers to know their audience and how they will react to this tool and, ultimately how to maximize the opportunity."
