About Santa Barbara
Have You Seen QR Codes in the Santa Barbara Real Estate Market?
In case you missed it on our homepage, this is a Quick Response (QR) code. You’re going to be seeing more of these on this website, Facebook fan page, and our printed marketing materials. You will find they are also used in magazines, newspapers and even billboards.
So what does a QR code do?
It’s a cousin of the classic bar code you see on consumer goods when you shop. But this code contains a URL. Basically, it’s a hyperlink on paper – one that your smart phone can read & launch. What this means to you is that our Santa Barbara real estate website & our featured properties for sale are now easier than ever to access on your smart phone.
How do I read a QR code?
You’ll need an app for your smart phone to read these gems. Just do a search for QR readers. Many are free. Here are a few sites and searches to get you started:
- iPhone QR reader app search
- BlackBerry QR reader app search
- Droid QR reader app search
- BlackBerry App World
- Android Market
Once you install the app, launch it to take a picture of the QR code with your smart phone camera. The app goes to work and reads that image to translate it into a URL. Your smart phone’s browser launches, and the information you want is on your screen.
