A site domain is a big part of branding that further leads to brand awareness increase and builds trust in your published content. In particular, this applies to links that users follow. This is especially important if you are actively using QR technology in marketing.
Unfortunately, usually the QR code generator uses only its short links and doesn’t provide the possibility of editing. Thus, immediately after scanning the code, users will see the QR service domain, and the domain in its turn includes the robotically generated URL for each QR code.
This cannot be called a critical problem in the formation of corporate identity and business recognition, but you must agree: it’s much preferable to see your brand in the domain in your QR code.
We provide this opportunity for users of ME-QR service. Learn how to change a domain link in QR and why your brand name needs to appear in the link.
Benefits of a QR code with your domain
Firstly, it is a great advantage for the recognition and awareness of your company. Agree, modern users are aware of the importance of security on the Internet and don’t trust unfamiliar links. Plus, with an editable URL, it's much easier for you to connect with your target audience, launch advertising campaigns, track QR traffic channels, and work on the general development of your brand.
Secondly, a dynamic QR code is far more multifunctional than a static one. You can change the link to any other at any time, update the code design in a few clicks, etc. You don't need to print a new QR code, change business cards, flyers, and other printing products ...
For example, you generated a QR code for a PDF file, made a huge copy from a sheet of metal, and installed it on your facade. If over time, you need not a PDF, but a link, an image, or another type of QR, you don’t have to do everything from scratch - you just change the URL.
