How to make a QR code for a form

Let’s say you’ve handed out event invitations and you’d like invitees to have an easier way to access your RSVP form from their mobile phones. Maybe you’ve posted an advertisement at a bus stop and you’d like for people interested in your company to have a quick way of filling out your contact form while they’re waiting for a ride. Or maybe you’re working at a career fair and want applicants to have a quick way of accessing an online application form.

The common thread here is that in an increasingly mobile world, it helps to have a way of capturing information from people on the go. So what you need is a QR code that directs interested parties directly to your online form.
