There's no need to explain the power of Instagram as a social platform — but how rapidly are you able to bring people to your page from the real world. QR codes allow for rapid connection, and can instantly bring scanners to any Instagram account of your choice.
Anyone who has an Instagram and flowcode.com account can link a QR code to their profile in under 60 seconds (yes, that’s a fact). You’ll want to decide where exactly you want to send your audience when linking your QR code to your Instagram profile. You can send your audience to your Instagram feed, or to a specific post, Reel, or IGTV. Once you’ve identified your scan destination, you’ll want to copy the Instagram link and connect it to your QR code so you can start connecting with your audience instantly.
Using a QR code to scan to your Instagram is a great way to directly increase traffic to your account and grow your following. Replacing your username with a QR code on print materials like business cards, OOH campaigns, marketing ads, and brochures is a great way to measure how and when people are landing on your Instagram page. This is also a fool proof way to ensure no one misspells your username, or if you’ve changed your username - they can still follow you! With Flowcode’s real time analytics you can adapt your posting schedule based on popular times and days that people are scanning your QR code. You can link a QR code to any personal, business, or creator Instagram profile with ease.
