Popular QR Codes Make Books More Compelling and Extend Their Shelf Life


Scanbuy, Inc., the global leader in mobile marketing solutions, today announced that QR Codes in books published by Atria Books, Inc. are helping to engage scores of readers around the world. Scanbuy technology was used to create and manage QR Codes presented throughout Rachael Ray’s “Book of Burger, “Week in A Day” and “My Life In Meals,” “The Nerdy Nummies Cookbook” by Rosanna Pansino and golf pro Nick Faldo’s “A Swing for Life.” Detailed data from the codes show that over 19 thousand readers from more than 90 countries are engaging with Pansino’s book, providing an unprecedented opportunity for the author to connect with fans in a relevant way.

Along with engaging readers and improving their experience, adding QR Codes in a printed book expands its shelf life by allowing the author to change up materials with dynamic links to reader tips, recipes and more.

“Atria Books understands the value of mobile for their readers,” said Maryann Moschides, Chief Marketing Officer at Scanbuy. “We are happy to partner with them to provide technology that bridges the engagement gap for readers. QR Codes can make books more compelling by providing a mobile experience that extends well beyond traditional reading.”

The secure, cloud-based technology is uniquely designed to generate, edit and measure mobile experiences with ease.
