Foursquare + Your Business
Creating foursquare specials for your business is easy!
Here’s a quick primer on how the whole process will work:
Step 1 – Confirm your business information
In order to give you the power to create specials for your venue, we need to confirm that
you’re the person in charge of managing that venue.
By claiming your venue, you’ll also get exclusive access to the stats we
collect for your venue — how many people check in on what days and times,
and lots of other goodies.
Step 2 – Create your first special
We offer a few choices for how foursquare users can unlock your special:
* Mayor specials can be unlocked only by the Mayor of your venue (the user who has checked in the most in the last 60 days).
* Count-based specials are unlocked when a user checks in a certain number of times.
(“… on your 10th check-in”)
* Frequency-based specials are unlocked every so many check-ins.
(“… every 5th check-in”)
* Wildcard specials are always unlocked, but your staff has to verify some extra conditions
before awarding the special.
(“Free drink with purchase of an entree when you check in”)
* More to come!
A few more things to keep in mind
One active special at a time
While you can create multiple specials for your venue, initially you’ll only be able to have one special live at a time.
But fear not! Our Manage Specials page will make it easy for you to turn specials on and off.
Getting your specials approved
When you create a new special, it’ll have to be approved by our team of small business specialists.
The moment your special is approved, we’ll fire off an email to you with a link that will whisk you away to your
Manage Specials page, where you’ll be able to make that special live.
