Councils and government can and have used QR Codes in many different and unique ways.

Can QR codes be interactive

Its important to note that a QR Code is a little like a URL shortner as it redirects to a website of information. It contains very little information itself.

Because you can link to videos, tutorials or pretty well any information on the internet as long as it is mobile friendly.

By scanning a simple QR code, consumers can be transported to an augmented reality experience. From product packaging to OOH advertisements to web pages, you can launch an interactive marketing campaign that takes your brand to the next level.

How to use QR Codes for Tourism

This probably one of the more interesting ways to use QR Code.

QR codes are a great way to promote tourism in any industry including councils and local government. This is because you can link to a wide range of interesting information, provide links to other destination including places to eat etc.

Since dynamic QR codes are changeable as tourism changes daily, it is convenient to place them in any scannable location to educate people with augmented reality (AR experiences) and other virtual information easily stored in mobile phones.

Moreover, smartphones can translate most materials nowadays making it more comfortable for foreigners to receive information who do not understand the local language.

What do QR Codes for Local Councils cost

So now for the crunch. Static QR Codes are free however if you have link URL they can become quite dense (lots of squares very close together) and very hard to scan if produced to small. You can then use a bitly or any other QR Code Shortner to solve this problem.

A dynamic QR Code embeds a data base URL which is usually very small so the QR Code is a lot easier to read and reduce ion size. For most dynamic QR Code the price per code is less than a $1 per code and can get down very low depending on quantity. Just remember it is an ongoing fee. Contact us for more information and we can arrange a Zoom call or any other format.

Make sure they are fully informed with by providing a PDF explaining all the documents they require and all the rules they’ll need to follow.

You can also use an MP3 file or video if you think people would be more receptive to listening or watching the information.
