A “Preview Page” vs. a Landing Page
The common QR scanning experience is to link directly to a landing page (i.e., website). EQR is a robust platform that offers a superior alternative to a traditional landing page, whether it be DIY or platform-
When a EQR-
Appropriately named, this “preview page” lets the user choose the Action that best serves their need. In effect, each Action links to its own landing page, which gives preview pages significant breadth and flexibility.
While it is possible to build a landing page that resembles a EQR preview page, it is not easy to replicate its flexibility or many additional functions. Preview pages are familiar, modular, location-
It’s the use of an innovative three-
With the EQR CMS, there are three distinct stages of control over every interaction.
The Preview stage gives the marketer control over which Actions are available at a location (i.e., QR code), including when they are available the order they are presented.
The Engagement stage transfers control to the end user to choose which of the Actions serves their need.
The Fulfillment stage returns control to the marketer, where they control the Actions, including what metadata is displayed and what function is performed (e.g., redirect, microsite, SMS, webhook, etc.).
By incorporating user input, a three-
Other benefits of EQR’s three-
Conversational customer experiences
The platform’s CMS is purpose-
People choose to scan QR codes or NFC tags because they have a need. This conversational cadence places control with the user and consistently puts the marketer in the positive light of listening and delivering meaningful experiences.
The platform captures metrics for each modular element of its CMS. This means capturing overall metrics for a QR code and then for the relative click-
Performance metrics on Actions also means that A/B testing can be replaced by simultaneously testing A, B, C, and D and learning immediately which action users want. Moreover, by measuring user input, the platform is capturing expressed intent. Traditional landing pages capture only QR scans, while the EQR platform records scans, impressions (that an Action was displayed), and taps (that a user chose an Action).
Often, marketers check what type device customers use. Yes, this is somewhat useful, but the EQR platform goes much deeper, letting them know their customer’s interest as well as their intent when a product is in hand. By capturing intent through a closed feedback loop, the EQR platform captures vital information not otherwise available from web analytics.
Consistently fast loading
According to Google research, the load time of the average mobile landing page is 22 seconds, while users begin leaving after only a few seconds. Because preview pages are built entirely with lightweight metadata, they consistently load with lightning speed.
The EQR platform is location-
Preview pages use platform-
As a proximity platform, EQR also allows images and notes to be associated with a location ID. When planning content for QR codes on products in locations all over the world, it is valuable to visually see an image of the codes in their deployed locations.
Modular elements maximize flexibility
Preview pages are made of standardized, modular elements called Actions. Because preview pages are not created until a QR code is scanned, their associated Actions may be controlled by rule, schedule, or API.
Actions are stored in a reusable library. They can be applied as needed, to one QR code or thousands in bulk. Actions can be added, removed, or scheduled as needed, and can be easily edited to create alternate versions.
One example of the power of modular elements is when an action is incorporated into hundreds of different preview pages, whereupon changes to that action will automatically update all associated preview pages.
Once actions are incorporated into a preview page, they can be monitored for effectiveness and rearranged, altered, or substituted as needed. Unlike a common landing page, if you want to schedule an exclusive promotion for fifteen minutes on Thursday at noon, it’s as easy as scheduling a single action. It’s just as simple to add as needed an action from a sponsor, post a recall notice, or add a big announcement to a preview page.
Scanning QR codes is a form of local search. The EQR platform’s modular, interchangeable elements make it easy for marketers to curate and manage these search results.
The EQR platform allows multiple landing pages
One landing page is not enough to serve the varied needs of a diverse customer base that are often in different stages of the customer cycle.
Preview pages are just that... previews of available actions. Each Action can link to an external URL or to an individual landing page built and hosted on the EQR platform. If, for example, you need English, Spanish, and French versions of the same content, then the EQR platform enables all three as options. At the same time, it is easy to add landing pages that simultaneously target users wanting to gather more information, users ready to buy now, and users in search of support.
Standardized elements simplify content creation
Action elements are based on industry-
Another benefit of using standard metadata is that the resulting previews are instantly familiar. People use search engines daily, so they’re programmed to quickly review and choose from links previewed with standard metadata. As a result, preview pages are always uniform, visually pleasing, and quickly interpreted, without any design effort at all.
Integrated Context Manager
Integrated context management tools let you assign, manage and interpret contextual elements such as location, time stamps, campaign, or product details. Any or all of these can be automatically transferred to action-
Selection of available actions
The EQR platform offers a growing list of actions apart from the standard link to a URL. These include “make a call,” “send an SMS,” or “send an email.” There’s even a platform-
App support with alternate content
Through the platform’s SDK developers can enable any app to support and interact with QR codes, NFC tags, and beacons. Then with the EQR platform’s management controls, it’s straightforward to show app users preview pages with a different selection of actions than non-
When using the unique identifier that is automatically assigned by our SDK, the EQR platform also opens the door to personalized QR experiences.
Better navigation for users
A company’s master website usually includes all of the information useful to the user of a specific product in a specific location, but it is difficult for that user to navigate to just what they need. The EQR platform provides tools to quickly organize and deploy relevant links for a specific location, and then to monitor the engagement with each one. Links can even be nested, as in this example, to create a simple table of contents with a subset of Actions. (The "Daily Coupon Zone" link at the top links to a nested page of coupons.)
Ready for enterprise deployments
