What Does Product Registration Mean?

Product registration usually refers to when the consumer provides their contact information to receive updates on recalls and safety notices. Consumers can usually register their products in one of three ways.
  1. Fill out a product registration card and mail it to the manufacturer.
  2. Search for a product registration form on the manufacturer’s website.
  3. Scan a QR code that is connected to a digital product registration form.

Searching for the product registration on the manufacturer’s website works for most people, but there's an even more effective way to capture product registrations.

You can do this by incorporating a QR code into your product registration process. It is easier for consumers to scan a QR code that takes them exactly where they need to go than mailing in a printed product registration card. Using a tool like Lumavate, you can link a digital product registration form to a QR code. After consumers complete the product registration form you can take them to a product onboarding experience that will provide them with helpful content like user manuals and how-to videos. Plus, the information from the product registration form can be directly connected to your preferred customer relationship management (CRM) solution.
