Inviting Your Customers to Foursquare

0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 0 Flares ×

In an earlier post I wrote about some Creative Ways to Use Foursquare to market your business.

One of those ideas was to create “Easter Eggs”:

Hide “Easter Eggs” in your products or billing statements. Print out a mini-flyer describing your Foursquare specials and hide them inside books, packaging, or include them with correspondence to your customers. Remind them that when they visit your store they are eligible for special rewards when they Check In on Foursquare.

You can include these in mailings, shopping bags, table tents or anywhere you have an opportunity to send or give your customer a piece of paper.

I have created a couple of templates for you to work with for incorporating these promotional materials into your marketing program.
