You create a QR code, paste in the link to your YouTube content and when your followers scan the code, YouTube opens and your video automatically begins playing. Try some of these:
- How-to videos
- Movie trailers
- Music clips
- Product reviews
- Explainer videos
- Instructional videos
- Introductory videos
- Educational videos
- About us videos
- Holiday greetings
- Pet videos!
(We would watch the heck out of your pet videos.)

Why use dynamic website QR Codes?
Showcase your brand’s individuality
Let your brand shine within the QR code. Add your logo to the QR code, change the colors to match your brand's color palette. Customize the short URL with your name. Or, put a YouTube logo in the code so everyone knows exactly what to expect when they scan it.
Showcase your brilliance.
Print your QR code in a variety of high-definition formats that look amazing regardless of their size and what medium they are in. No matter how you share your YouTube code, it’s going to look good. Please ask us about formats if you need help choosing.
Assess your code’s success
Dynamic YouTube QR codes provide you with a lot of useful information. What information? Times they were scanned. Places they were scanned. Number of times they were scanned. Find out how many people are watching your YouTube video from the code.
Keep your codes flexible
Change the video URL, the channel URL or the embed code whenever you need to. Your code is completely editable. Don’t worry about making a mistake again. Just edit the code.
How about some YouTube QR Code uses?
You got it!
Suppose you have a home improvement store. Share how-to videos showing people ways to make little DIY projects around their houses. Print out a brochure highlighting some of the materials they will need to do a certain project. Then, create a QR code for a YouTube video that shows them how to create that specific project.
Or, print a direct mail card that advertises your YouTube channel that has loads of videos showing people how to do little fixes around the house. Have the QR code point to your channel.
Link your code to a YouTube video that makes your customers want to immediately drop everything they’re doing and check out your book, movie, game, whatever.
Print bookmarks to give away and have the QR code always pointing to your newest book.
Send out an email to your customers prompting them to scan the code whenever you have a new movie or game trailer up
Share your expertise in video form and print some brochures with a QR code for your YouTube channel.
Give your audience some how-to videos or tutorials that show them how to get the most out of their new purchase and watch your brand engagement grow.
Share information with people on your real estate sign by pointing visitors to a video about your agency.
Or, link the code to a virtual tour video of the house where your real estate sign is located. That way, home buyers can tour the house even if you’re not there to show them around.
