Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) May 18, 2011
GetResponse, a leading email marketing provider used by over 200,000 businesses worldwide, announced today the availability for download of “Mobilize Email Marketing with QR Codes”, a whitepaper analysis of the history of 2D barcodes, with use cases, tactics, and tips for email marketing applications.

Key topics covered in the free whitepaper:
- How marketers can reach growing mobile consumer segment with QR codes.
- Tactics for using QR codes in email marketing and all related channels.
- Examples of multichannel uses such as email, web sign up forms, banner ads, online contests, social media, etc.
- How to create effective QR code email campaigns and increase ROI.
Readers will discover that, as consumers become increasingly mobile, the coding of URLs, text, web forms, and other content makes it extremely convenient for them to scan and respond to marketing messages from any source – thus bridging the divide between traditional and digital marketing.
Research and development of the QR Codes whitepaper and new QR Code Generator were inspired by the successful use of 2-D codes by the consumer products, retail, publishing and travel industries in several industrialized countries, and by the opportunity for GetResponse email marketers to penetrate the exploding mobile consumer market.
“We’re very excited to release this whitepaper and help SMB marketers understand that QR Codes are not just for the big name brands – anyone can use them with help of our new QR Code Generator,” explained Simon Grabowski, Implix CEO and founder of GetResponse. “Most importantly, with our new whitepaper, we wanted to give our customers ideas and tips for implementation in their email campaigns so they can reach this growing consumer segment. eMarketer projects that US smartphone users will reach 73.3 million by the end of this year – that’s 31% of the total mobile user population. Mobile scanning also increased 12-fold in the second half of 2010. Now, with the combined release of the whitepaper and QR Code Generator, small businesses can benefit from one of the hottest new trends in 21st century marketing.”
