QR Codes & Mail = Big Savings This Summer

by david
You know QR Codes are moving fast when the The U.S. Postal Service® gets in on the fun! Last week, they officially announced that they will be offering a 3% discount on any Standard and First-Class Mail that includes a mobile barcode (QR Code) for marketing purposes. The savings will be offered from July 1st to August 31st, 2011. ScanLife has also entered into a Business Alliance with the U.S. Postal Service® and to show our support for this fantastic effort, we will be offering a 10% discount to any customer that uses our platform as part of their 2D barcode/mail campaign! Combining the mail with 2D barcodes has seen amazing results with some response rates at 7-10%! This package will include:
  • Up to 5 unique codes
  • Unlimited scans
  • 3-month activation period
  • Complete tracking analytics like unique scans and location
  • Optional: A custom mobile landing page
We will also ensure your campaign meets the requirements of the USPS incentive when you use the ScanLife system. Choose from a variety of code actions that can make your mail more engaging in seconds - link to the Web for demo videos, load a pre-filled Email for opt-ins, or link to right to a phone number to order your product. We can even help you build a custom landing page. So How Do You Get Started? If you already have a ScanLife account, just contact us for more info. If you don't have an account, just follow these simple steps:
