The 4th annual Foursquare Day celebration is rapidly approaching and Atlanta is one of hundreds of communities around the world that will be celebrating on April 16th. While Fousquare is a global social network, the real power of the platform is found right here in local markets. Whether your business has been using Foursquare for years or you have still yet to take the plunge, there is no better time than the present to get your establishment involved. What can your business do to celebrate on April 16th?

Offer a unique one day only special in the app that metro Atlanta users can earn by checking in at your location(s).  There is a centralized list of all metro area businesses running unique 2013 4sqDay specials to promote your deal and to inform the community about places they should visit that day. Check out the 2011 and 2012 list of one-day only 4sqDay specials if you need inspiration. What you need to do right now:

  1. Claim Your Venue – This is the critical first step if you have not done so already.

  2. Create A Special - Offer something that will be unique just for foursquare Day on 4/16. If this is your first time using the app you may want to go ahead and start running a promo now so that your employees get used to seeing customers redeeming deals.

  3. Notify 4sqATL – Send in your 4sqDay special so that it can be included in the centralized list of deals around Atlanta.  The deadline for submitting your 4sqDay deal to be included on 4sqATL.com will be midnight on April 15th.

  4. Employee Awareness – It is extremely important that all employees who will be at your business on 4sqDay are made aware of the special. This flyer will help your employees to know what to look for when users redeem specials at your business.

  5. Promotion – 4sqATL will do everything possible to make your deal known, but the best marketing source is YOU! Please make your customers aware that you are participating in 4sqDay and that you are part of the #4sqATL community.

Let 4sqATL know if you have any questions or need assistance by using the contact form or by reaching out on Twitter.  Foursquare Day in Atlanta will only be as awesome as the business that participate. I look forward to seeing all of the great specials for users to explore on 4/16!
