Use Foursquare to Benefit Your BusinessDecember 23rd, 2011
Whether you want to promote a café, a hotel, or any customer-oriented business, you’ll surely benefit from the newest application in geotagging: foursquare. You’re just a few steps away from gaining valuable exposure. Try foursquare now and link it to your site!
Claim your venue
Foursquare gives you the chance to expand your community. After signing up, claim your venue at Foursquare for business and gain access to all tools. Designed for mobile devices, your visitors will be able to “check-in” at your venue and review your service using this app on their smartphones. Visitors can also earn badges, points and engage with the Foursquare community.
Add a widget
Go to placewidget.com and find your “Place” (e.g., Pizzeria Da Michele, Naples). After clicking on “Get My Widget Code!” just add the widget to your website at Webnode. (Don’t know how? Click here). The widget will appear in your site which looks like this box on the left. By adding a Foursquare widget, your location will show up and your popularity and reviews will be seen by all users who’ll have a better idea of what to expect when they choose your service.
Take advantage of this real-time app to attract more customers. By claiming your venue you already establish your presence, but are there further ways to gain notice? You can give special offers to the Foursquare “mayor” (the visitor who checks in most often)! Take a look at some fun ways you can attract customers here.
