So it's fair to say that including a QR Code on your business card is a great idea, but its important to also consider what type of code is best for your specific business and which one will get you the best response.

When using these types of codes, it's best to display them on the front of your business card where you would typically find an individuals contact information. Another style of QR Code that is also very popular is the URL Code which after being scanned will bring you to a specific internet destination, like a business homepage or an “About Me” blog. This type of QR code is usually placed on the back of business card although this is not always the case. One of the benefits of URL QR Codes is that they are traceable. Tracking QR Codes comes in handy when you want to inquire about your networking efforts or if you are a business owner, check to see which one of your employee's is the doing best at network marketing. This works by giving each of your employee's their own personal URL QR Code and each time someone scans the card to reference the information of it, it counts towards that particular employee's networking efforts.
If you are involved in a business that revolves around services, you could also have a QR Code created to bring in more customer company reviews. This can be achieved by creating a QR Code that links directly to your company Customer Feedback page. This gives customers the opportunity to comment and review the services they received from business, all with the scan of a barcode.
