Now that you know how to create a free QR Code for your business, let’s move on to knowing the best QR Code type for a business.
Should you go for a static or dynamic QR Code for your business?
You can use either static or dynamic QR Codes. However, if you use a static QR Code, it will contain fixed information and pose some limitations:
You cannot make changes once created
You cannot track the performance
You cannot add your business logo
However, if you use dynamic QR Codes created on Beaconstac, you can:
Change the file or URL anytime
Track user interactions such as demographics, number of scans, and more
Make customizations to QR Codes, such as adding logos, brand colors, and frames
Avail other advanced features impossible with static QR Codes
What’s the verdict?
Static QR Codes may help you with one-time use cases. But, from a business standpoint, if you want to use QR Codes for campaigns or in the long run, dynamic QR Codes carry more benefits than static QR Codes.
