QR Code as Moving Target

QR codes have it tough. There’s a whole bunch of talk about whether consumers are willing to interact with the technology, and the fact that a lot of marketers are still slapping QR in the most random places isn’t helping either.

Here’s one we took a shot of. It’s on the back of a New York City bus. It’s so small, you can’t even see it and there isn’t a call to action asking people to scan it. It’s a real fail. Visit Digiday’s WTF Digital Marketing Tumblr for more examples of bad QR codes.
