Best practices & tips for Google Map QR code

Work on a custom design

Instead of creating a basic QR code, get creative and make a custom design that incorporates your branding and icons that are relevant to the location or the location’s host.

This will make your code more visually appealing and memorable, so it’s easier to make the connection between the location and your brand.

Create a special landing page

While the Google Maps QR code is designed to open location directions instantly, you could use the QR code as an opportunity to direct customers to a special landing page with directions. 

With a landing page, you have all the possibilities to offer users a unique experience. For example, the code could lead to a virtual tour of the location or provide details on how to find a secret location.

This can be useful for businesses located in large buildings, small narrow streets, or secret underground speakeasies.

Use map QR codes strategically

To get the most out of your QR code, you’ll need to use it strategically and on multiple effective channels. You need to clearly understand your audience and how to catch their attention. 

For example, if you map QR code leads to a cute hipster cafe, you should add your QR code in banner ads or on websites, rather than paying for it to be printed in newspapers.
