Understand the benefits of QR codes for your business

While QR codes have been around for a while, they’ve surged in popularity post-covid due to their contactless convenience. With Canopy Connect's QR feature, insurance agencies can quickly and easily promote their business, generate leads, and provide prospects with a secure way to send their information. 

QR codes are an incredibly simple and efficient way to promote your insurance business. By incorporating them into your marketing strategy, you can easily reach potential customers and generate leads. They also allow prospects to quickly send their verified insurance information your way, which helps set you apart from the competition—in an industry that still regularly relies on faxing documents for quoting.

Employing this cost-effective technology, you’ll be able to reach more customers and market your agency more effectively than ever before.

Insurance agencies can take advantage of Canopy Connect's innovative QR feature to quickly and securely gather prospects' verified insurance information.

It shows that you are committed to providing a seamless and convenient experience from start to finish.

To get the most out of this feature, insurance agencies should go to their Canopy Connect dashboard. On their dashboard, click on the “Your Links” header. From there, you can access all of your Canopy Connect link options. Agencies even have the option to personalize their links and QR codes by adding their logos to them in the edit tab. Click on your QR code to download the PNG to your computer or smartphone. From there, agencies have many options for how they want to incorporate it into their advertising and marketing efforts. 

Canopy Connect's QR feature is an invaluable tool for any insurance agency wanting to effortlessly generate more leads. Let’s see some of the best ways our customers have incorporated it and how it could work for your agency.

Integrating a QR code into your insurance agency’s marketing strategy is an effective way to reach more customers and stand out from the competition.

A prime example of how creative this feature can be is best shown through Brendon Ericson, an insurance agent, who incorporated his Canopy Connect QR code into his seasonal decor. He included his QR code outside along with his Halloween decorations and received a few submissions from people walking by his house. QR codes aren’t limited to just social sharing—placing them in high-traffic areas, like your neighborhood or outside your business, can easily generate leads for your agency.
