Increase digital engagement with online puzzles.

Download the Pagemasters digital puzzles catalogue to see how it works, and keep reading for five great reasons to add a QR code to your puzzles today.


1. Data acquisition

When someone buys your publication at the newsagents or reads it at the local cafe, you don’t usually know who they are. Sending them to your website gives you the chance to understand your readers. A simple “Enter your email to play for free” will see you build up your client list for future marketing campaigns.


2. Advertising assets

There’s only so much space on the physical puzzles page. A digital companion page gives you a new asset to sell to advertisers or a great value add to existing print advertisers.


3. Value for readers

Print customers who can’t get enough puzzles can use the QR Code to unlock bonus free or premium content. Customers can download a bonus page to print or play interactive puzzles online. Popular content includes quizzes, crosswords, sudoku and word searches. 


4. Gain subscribers and traffic

Redirecting a customer to your website gives you an opportunity to spruik the benefits of subscribing to your publication or newsletter, while giving your digital advertisers more impressions.


5. Engaging and habit-forming

In the age of people being glued to their screens, digital puzzles and quizzes are a proven attention magnet. They keep people coming back for more. Average solve time for a standard crossword is roughly 10 minutes – which is great exposure for sponsors. Online quizzes are really addictive activities for lone solvers or groups.
