Turn Your ColoProperty Listing Into a QR Code

The improved ColoProperty includes a great bonus feature for you: a unique URL for each listing. What does that mean to you?  You can now pull up your listing on ColoProperty.com®, copy the URL in the Address bar, then link to it on your website or blog. Plus, easily post your listing to your various social networking sites by clicking any of these buttons:
 
Here’s a technology option you might not have tried yet: QR codes.  A QR code is a barcode (just like on items at the grocery store) that can be scanned with a smart phone to access information or a website. We’re going to show you how to create a barcode that leads people to your listing on ColoProperty.com®, like the one below. Once created, you can place the QR code on brochures and flyers to quickly direct buyers to your listing online.
 
1) Go to ColoProperty.com® and pull up the detail page of your listing. Copy the url and go to www.mobile-barcodes.com/qr-code-generator. Simply paste your url into the field and click “Submit”. Your QR code has been generated!
2) Right click (or Command/click for Macs) and copy or save the image. Then paste it or upload it wherever you would like. Your flyers and brochures are perfect because they give buyers access to listing details, ALL of the photos, virtual tours, map location, Walkscore, and it’s all branded with your contact information. If they click “Request Info”, the lead is emailed straight to you!
3)  You need a barcode scanner on your smart phone to pull this whole thing together. Go to either the Market or the App store and search for “barcode scanner” or “barcode reader”. Download the app of your choice (for free), open it and scan the QR code above to see what buyers will see when they scan your listing’s QR code.
