Essential tips for creatives using QR codes

Build organic buzz

QR codes are a great way to build buzz around your new album or single. A QR code on a cryptic ad of your work can send scanners to a sneak look at what’s to come. This can be done in magazines and newspapers, on posters and billboards, or even on the side of a bus or train.

By placing a QR code on an ad for your new album (or single), you will be able to get people interested in your music just as much as they would be if they saw one of your videos on YouTube or heard it on Spotify. Music QR codes are a powerful way to get people intrigued.

Engaging merchandise drops

QR codes are providing musicians with the fastest way to connect and distribute NFTs. QR codes are a more direct way of distributing NFTs than their blockchain equivalent, which is a public ledger containing all transactions. Instead, QR codes allow users to access a digital asset in a more private and personal way.

Increase your merchandise sales

The QR code is a universal way to make sure that your fans are able to access your online store. It’s one of the easiest ways to sell merch without having to rely on cash or credit card payments. One of the best ways to use QR codes for music merchandise is when you’re playing a show. It’s easy for people to scan them, and it gives them a way to get into your online store right away. They can also give customers another opportunity to buy tickets and merchandise after the show.

QR codes aren’t just useful at shows; they can also be used on tickets and other promotional items like posters and flyers. If you have a big screen in front of the stage, put a QR code on it so people can scan it while they watch the show! Flowcode’s free QR code for music merchandise allows you to do just this.
