Foursquare recently made it possible for business owners to manage foursquare specials and review foursquare analytics. Having access to this data is going to be extremely beneficial for business owners. With that said, many business owners will probably enlist one or more employees to help manage their foursquare activities. Below is a step by step approach to adding an employee to your foursquare venue.
Claim Your Venue on Foursquare
If you haven’t already done so, the first step in the process of adding an employee to your foursquare venue is claiming the venue yourself. There can only be one foursquare Manager, although Employees of your foursquare venue still have the ability to create and manage foursquare specials, as well as, have access to foursquare venue data. In an earlier post on the Catalyst Marketers blog, we delve into how to claim your venue on foursquare – Check out that post, claim your venue, and then move on to step 2 below.
Add an Employee to a foursquare Venue
Once you’ve claimed your venue on foursquare, it’s now time to add employees to your foursquare venue. Be sure that you’re logged into foursquare and then navigate to your employee’s foursquare profile page. Once you land on that page, scroll down the right side of the page until you see the “Employee Of” header (it should be below Mayorships and above Friends). There you will find a drop-down box. Simply drop-down the selections and choose your venue. Once you’ve chosen your foursquare venue, simply click Add. That’s it! It’s as simple as that. Your employee now has access to manage foursquare specials and review foursquare reporting for your business.
Remember that success with Content Marketing and Inbound Marketing comes through a team effort. Adding employees to your foursquare venue allows your entire team to help out with your Marketing efforts. It takes a little bit of the burden of managing EVERYTHING off of you. You can even put someone in charge of managing foursquare specials and another person in charge of reviewing and analyzing foursquare analytics. Be sure to communicate to both employees that they should be working together, as knowing what specials to run, and how effective they are, should be a direct result of what the data is telling you.
