Foursquare Specials

Our most recent FanTools update reaches one more social media platform, Foursquare.  For those who are unfamiliar, Foursquare is a location based social networking site, which allows users to check in to different venues using their mobile device.

For the venue, Foursquare allows them to recognize their customers and reward them for their loyalty.  FanTools users can now schedule and publish any of the available Foursquare specials listed below:

Mayor – available only to the mayor of the venue
Check-In – available to anyone, any time they check into you venue
Loyalty – activated only after repeat visits.
Newbie – for anyone, provided it is the first time they have checked into the venue.
Swarm – available when many people check in at once.
Friends – available when a group of people check into your venue together.
Flash – available to a limited number of people who check-in first.

Similar to the recently added Facebook Deals, or creating a flash deal, coupon, or group deal, Foursquare Specials are just as easy and intuitive in FanTools.  Below is a screen shot of what the form looks like inside of our app.

 

If your business hasn’t gotten started using Foursquare, it is easy to sign up and start rewarding customers when they check-in to your venue, just go here.  It is also a great place for you to learn more about Foursquare and its role in the social media world!
