I have recently purchased some business cards, and they have come with a QR code on the back. I've tried scanning it to see if it does anything - it doesn't. I want to link it so it either takes people to my website or ring my phone, but all the sites I can find are to create them. Is there one that just links or activates them?

Doesn't work like that. QR codes are encoded data, which means you're stuck with what you've got.

Hmmm, going to have to get onto the guys who made my business cards then. What's the point of putting a QR code on my card if it does nothing! Not that it majorly matters, it looks cool anyway.

Here's a Custom @MicrosoftTag created for @RyanSweigert =0p...

A client of mine had the same problem with the QR code on her old business cards. I designed a @MicrosoftTag sticker to cover the bad QR codes. A Microsoft Tag can be repurposed, and pointed to new URLs.

Here are a few more benefits of Microsoft Tag: * (RTL) Real Time Location Awareness * Malware Protection Built-In * Better Customizability Options
