And risk being vulnerable to early adopters.
Subscription QR is a paper based Tech solution with a focus on adopting QR in the Property market
Pick up your Smart phone ( People dont carry PC’s around with them !)
You can print this off and Scan with a Smartphone, hand it out to your colleagues, fax it !
You can also Scan off your PC , you can also use QR smart links, a bit like a short website link, but this is a Smartphone first document.
Created by Toyota in 1994, once the QR code is scanned it will then take you to a specific address.
It’s astonishing what a QR code can be connected to !
QR code uptake has increased exponentially with 70% of all Smartphone users expecting QR in their daily routine.
They know from experience that the QR code always leads to Smartphone friendly information.
The Smart QR industry specifically adopt smartphone friendly widgets and content.
For example, a smartphone enabled PDF, obvious isn’t it ?
Certain industries have embraced QR but the property industry remains way behind the curve and almost certainly vulnerable to early adopters.
Somehow the Estate Agent / Realtor industry harks back to the tradition of the appointment with an Agent and neglect the needs of the smartphone user.
Maybe there is an inherent lack of detail within the industry ?
Gone are the days where the detail can be discarded because the smartphone user has upended the sales cycle.
By the time your average Millennial make an appointment, their research is already done !
And woe betide the Agent / Realtor who fails in the detail on a property instruction or introduction, especially during the stress of a pandemic.
The other startling problem in the Property industry, is that there is usually a fundamental issue with the technology employed by Estate Agents and Realtors.
The typical technology would be infinitely more successful used in tandem with QR.
Millennials avoid websites like the plague, they are impossible to navigate at speed and load slowly in comparison to a PWA or QR code.
(The burger bar navigation on A Progressive Web APP is so simple on the smart phone )
The presumption that a database driven website, with glossy images created on a large PC connected to a high speed internet connection somehow works on the small Smartphone device with a satellite connection is a mistake.
It’s as if Agents and Realtors are held to ransom by their in house ‘tech experts’ who in turn have a deep self interest in staying on the payroll.
The future trends are all pointing in one direction and thats outsourced subscription cloud solutions.
Adopting QR in the Property Market.
1. How to Use A QR Code: always have a call to action.
2. Include The URL: Try to include the URL (web address) on the marketing material as not everybody will want to use the QR code e.g. if you are putting the code on a set of particulars then include the URL for the property on your website. This is so much easier using a QR URL like this https://archers-3bed/finchley
3. Help Test & Measure: With QR codes you can track how many people have scanned the code. Therefore allowing you to know how many people have scanned from a recent leaflet drop. This is how you test and measure marketing.
4. Where Should The Code Take The User To: Think twice about linking to your homepage.
Select a Subscription QR Company that provide a dedicated social media landing page or Property template for the individual property.
5. Size Matters: Only use high definition print QR codes that read within on second. Spend effort and thought on QR placement. Listen to the collective advice and best practice of an outsourced Expert.
