Foursquare now at The Bear, Bridgnorth
I’m really pleased to have got the Bear on foursquare. They’re one of the first Bridgnorth businesses to offer customers who checkin to social networking sites with their phone, the chance to get deals. It’s taken a while to catch on with smart phone users, but at last it seems like we’ve turned the corner and people are much happier to use their phones to find and share local information, helping them to keep an eye on what’s happening nearby and what deals are available.
Facebook deals are available in the UK now too, so expect to see plenty of chances to get money off or loyalty deals when you checkin to a business while you’re out and about. Technotik offer a consultation and support service to local businesses keen to find out if Facebook, foursquare, twitter or other social networking sites can help them drum up more business.
It’s being around for a while now and I’ve been an enthusiastic user of location based social media like foursquare and more recently Facebook too. It’s all about crowd sourced local intelligence. Get to a new area and you can quickly find out what’s available nearby and what businesses have been recommended.
