The Foursquare for Business Mobile App
If you are a local business who want to attract and engage with new customers then you need to claim your Foursquare for business page. With many customers now using their smartphones to find local business, it pays to be on Foursquare. So what is 4Sq? Foursquare is a location-based mobile platform that makes cities easier to navigate and more interesting to explore. By allowing your customers to “check in” via the Foursquare Mobile app, users share their location (your business premises) with friends while collecting points and virtual badges.
Foursquare for Your Business
It’s vitally important to claim your business on Foursquare. Foursquare guides real-world experiences by allowing users to bookmark information about venues that they want to visit and surf relevant suggestions about nearby venues. Businesses and brands can leverage the foursquare platform by utilizing a wide set of tools to obtain, engage, and retain customers and audiences.
With millions of people checking in every day, foursquare allows you to find new customers and form deeper connections with your best ones.
Whether you’re a restaurant, bookstore, bar, concert hall, garage, department store, coffee shop or anywhere else people can check in, this is the real deal for you. Foursquare have built in a bunch of free tools for your business: from offering ‘Specials’ to learning about your customers to keeping your foursquare listing updated.
Claim Your Business on Foursquare
To get started you need to register your business and verify that you’re the owner or manager of your location. Then create a ‘Special’
Once you’ve claimed your business on foursquare, you get full access to real-time data about your customers, including:
- Total daily check-ins over time
- Your most recent visitors
- Your most frequent visitors
- Gender breakdown of your customers
- What time of day people check in
- Portion of your venue’s foursquare check-ins that are broadcast to Twitter and Facebook
It’s super useful, and can be used to tailor your Specials (or even your business). And, of course, it’s all free.
The Foursquare Mobile App is available on iPhone, Blackberry, Android WebOS, Symbian, S40 and Windows Phone.
