Should we have a QR Code on our sign?

For some time we have wondered if we should have a QR Code on our B&B roadside sign linking to our Victoria B&B website. Being in a nice quiet spot we do not have much passing tourist traffic so we still ponder this. What do you think?

A QR Code is a “Quick Response Code” having similarities in use to a bar code. It is more complex in design, a two dimensional code in a square shape. It most commonly links to a webpage.  The idea is to place a decal of maybe 6″x6″ on either side of our Victoria B&B sign. When people drive by our sign they simply point their smart phone at the code, see the website page and can bookmark it.

Only last week I mentioned to Linda that it seemed odd that I had not seen a QR Code in use in Victoria. Maybe this is because the extent of my travels is to the grocery store. Then, last Sunday, we had our first sighting, on a real estate sign.

So maybe we should get a QR Code printed for our sign making it easier for people to see the beauty of our Victoria B&B without even entering our gates.
