Affise Expands Your Tracking Opportunities And Releases A New QR Code Feature

Quick Response Codes, known as QR, were first introduced in 1994 by a Japanese company, Denso Wave, which designs and manufactures automatic data collection equipment.

Because they can store much more information than a barcode, QR codes soon started to be introduced in various industries, such as product tracking and item identification.

Nowadays, QR codes are becoming increasingly popular due to the large number of smartphones with cameras that can easily read them and the various ways businesses can employ this source.

Consider, for example, a restaurant that no longer needs to reprint its menu whenever it wants to update it. It only needs to update the website visitors will land after using the QR code of the menu.

What are QR codes used for in partner marketing?

QR codes are a great way to track offline sales, which is especially helpful in partner marketing. They work well for expanding the reach of any partner program by allowing you to promote it on subways, stores, and other physical locations where you can place a QR code.

Thanks to Affise, you can now correctly track and attribute offline sales from QR codes. The flow is the same as regular tracking:
