Favorite Places on Google and QR Code (Mobile Tag)

Google has identified over 100,000 businesses in the U.S. as “Favorite Places on Google“. Each business is receiving a window decal with a unique QR code which would let customers or potential customers instantly learn more about a business, by visiting a mobile version of the business’ Place Page on smartphone including iPhone, Android-powered phones, BlackBerry and more.



With just a simple scan of the code, your customers can quickly:


  • Read reviews to see what other users think about the business
  • Find a coupon that the business has posted to their Place Page
  • Star the business to remember to check it out later, or to remember to visit again
  • Leave a review right after you leave the business. What’s a better time to write what you think, than when you’ve just visited?

Google is making use of QR code to promote its clients’ business.  What are you going to do with QR code?  Here are some tips, you can put it on your business card, flyer, newspaper, or even menu (if your business is a restaurant).
