Scan this code for a free special report: Ten Ways to Increase Your Sales Right Now!

In a previous post, I discussed 22 Ways to Use QR Codes to Boost Your Sales. The article lists 22 different things you can link a QR (Quick Response) code to, in order to boost your web traffic, engagement and sales.

Since QR codes bridge the gap between the print  and digital worlds, they’re perfect for getting more of your marketing message into the hands of anyone with a smartphone and a (free) code-scanning app. Which means your print marketing has the potential to be mobile marketing as well.

What kinds of print marketing? Conceivably, all of it.

Here are 39 places you can put your code:

1. Business cards
2. Letterhead
3. Envelopes
4. Postcards
5. Mailing/shipping labels
6. Invoices
7. Flyers
8. Posters
9. Brochures
10. Mugs
11. Mouse pads
12. Greeting cards
13. Newsletters
14. Articles
15. In-store signage
16. Vehicle signage
17. Booklets
18. Catalogs
19. Directories
20. Billboards
21. Proposals
22. T-shirts
