The main reason for incorporating a QR Code in your leaflet design and other marketing materials is to make it easy for people to access information on a digital platform. This may be a specific page on your website, one of your social media feeds, etc.
People will tend to take the route of least resistance so they are more likely to quickly scan a QR code than spend the time typing in a web address. This is a great reason for incorporating a QR Code in your leaflet.
In addition it is still relatively unusual so there is an additional curiosity factor that can make people scan the code which can lead to greater levels of engagement and ultimately to an increased response rate.
