How to Claim Your Venue on Foursquare

Foursquare, a location-based mobile and social platform, is growing globally, however, many local US based-businesses still do not manage their venues online.

The most important reason to claim your venue on Foursquare is to get access to valuable analytics called Venue Stats. In real time, as the owner of a venue, you will be able to view:

  • Total daily check-ins over time
  • Your most recent visitors
  • Your most frequent visitors
  • Gender breakdown of your customers
  • What time of day people check-in
  • Portion of your venue’s Foursquare check-ins that are broadcast to Twitter and Facebook

As the owner of a venue in Foursquare, you may create unique specials and offers for your business to attract more interest and customers, including mayor specials, frequency specials or customized one-time specials.

Recently, I was accepted into the Foursquare Ambassador program where I'm able to help businesses connect with their loyal clients and attract new customers. If you'd like to using Foursquare for free to claim and promote your business, check out http://4sq.com/jennyd to get started.

One of the biggest problems with this is Foursquare is using national database information (like the stuff ATT sells everyone when you get a new phone line) to validate businesses. The information is often incorrect and can’t be changed easily. So rather than being able to clam my business is just got frustrated and ditched the idea.

As a business owner. I want to be able to create my own entry for my business, and not claim something that was sold to them.

Jeff, I appreciate your comment. I would recommend that you check out http://foursquare.com/business/ for more information, especially if you have concerns about controlling your venue's information.
