Pro Tip:  You can re-size the QR code image and it should still work.  Test out your re-sized QR code before distributing it.

Why Put the QR Code on Emails?

Yes – QR codes are much more practical for hard-copy materials. However, including it on emails is a great way to boost your secondary marketing reach.

For Example One of your recipients pulls up your email at a soccer game. They love the valuation report and are giddy about sharing the site with nearby spectators. The QR code lets them share the site quickly and easily. Let fans market your site on your behalf!

Furthermore -- According to, as of 2023, 61% of people open email on their phone vs 24% via a web client (auto-read services) ...and only 5% on a desktop!!

Email Outreach with QR Codes: Best Practices

Best Practice 1:  Add your QR code as a header image.  Placing the QR code front and center will make it easy to share when reading from a mobile device.

Best Practice 2:  If you prefer to leave it out of your header, include it in your signature, or as an email footer.  


Best Practice 3:  Regardless of where you add your QR code to email, test it out!  Send yourself a sample email with the QR code included and open it on your cell phone.  As a coworker (or anyone nearby) to try scanning it with their phone.


*Keep in mind:  The goal behind adding a QR code to email is to enable secondary outreach.  Make it easy on your fans to spread the news of your services!
