Location Based Services
Get more customers by offering a check-in deal!
Location-based applications like Foursquareand Facebook Places are excellent opportunities for local businesses to attract customers who use these apps on their smartphones and other mobile devices. When a user checks-in at your location, it puts your business in the feed of every fan you have checking in.
So how does it work?
Smartphone users (iPhone/Blackberry/Palm/etc) are able to access information via the internet, based on their exact geographic location determined by their mobile device. Users can access these free services like Foursquare and Facebook Places and add tips to venues, get exclusive check-in deals, and let their friends know where they are. Promote your business with a special offer or deal to attract new customers and keep your existing ones coming back! For business owners, you can reward the users that have checked in the most at your establishment with discounts and exclusive offers. This can be invaluable to business owners with physical locations, since you are able to provide offers directly to those who are within your area.
