How Do I Get a QR Code

You can create a QR code for free on the following website:


But there is a better option...which is also free.

If you want to be able to track traffic to your website generated by the QR code, we recommend using http://Bitly.com

Here's a step by step walkthrough on how to create a free trackable QR code: 

1. Paste your link into the field by the blowfish in the top right hand corner:



2. You will see a confirmation screen like this:

3. Click on the X to close the confirmation screen. 


4. You will then see a list of your saved bit marks. Mouse over the link and then click on the "i" at the bottom of the blue screen: 

5. It will open up new window like this along the bottom:




6. Now, click on the "i Saved once" link at the bottom. 


7. At the top of the new window you will see a tiny QR code at the top of screen:



8. When you click on the little QR code, it will open up a separate window with a large image file that you can download and use on any printed material:



9. From now on, anytime someone scans your QR code it will be tracked in your bitly.com account. 

10. You can review stats by the date and time of each scan.













Now that you have a QR code, what do you do with it?

We recommend that you add it to a magnet!

If you give your customers a magnet they will keep it on their fridge or filing cabinet where they will have quick access to your QR code everyday for years.
