Unlock insights with voter engagement data

Understand your audience by monitoring scan and click activity from your QR code powered campaign. Anytime a user scans a Flowcode or navigates a Flowpage , you gain unique access to insights such as geographic location, popular dates and times, and even collect voter information. When you integrate QR codes for donations or more generally for other campaign messaging, each touchpoint unlocks an opportunity to capture another datapoint about your audience. Use this valuable data to segment your audience, identify similar target populations, and optimize how and when you speak to voters. Connecting QR codes to every part of your campaign allows you to intelligently re-target high value voters or donors, capture potential swing voters, and locate untapped potential with inactive voters. Add QR codes to your list of campaign tools that helps you make smart decisions quickly.

Modernize your campaign for maximum engagement

QR codes for campaigns have endless possibilities, especially when you use Flowcode. Flowcode’s dynamic QR codes contain smart rules, meaning you can change the URL destination for users to your liking, by time of day or day of the week. This opens up the opportunity to intelligently drive voters to urgent pages or drive to an action they are more likely to take on a certain day of the week or time. Campaigns can create QR code surveys for interactive ad-hoc polling of voters to create a direct line of communication with communities. Enable voters to share their views and opinions about policies and candidate behaviors, and have it all stored in one seamless database to supplement arduous on-the-ground canvassing. Candidates can build empathy through using QR to make them more accessible to voters with open lines of communication. Use QR codes for campaigns to drive them to your social media, enable them to ask direct questions to candidates, and hold virtual town halls or written responses to show voters that their specific needs are on your agenda. Similarly, use QR codes to enable quick access to event registration, guide users to the nearest voter registration locations, or allow them to sign-up for volunteering. Provide voters access with endless touch points to your candidate when you use interactive QR codes for campaigns.
