New for 2020! QR Codes

A QR code is like a barcode that links to a website or social media profile. When a user scans the code with their smartphone camera, they are taken to your site! With today's smartphone technology, there is no need to download a separate app to scan QR codes. 

This year, we will include a QR code for each listing. CTAC will generate a QR code for your listing - you just tell us where you'd like it to link! The QR codes will make the brochure truly interactive.
