Foursquare is a leading mobile application that assists customers in finding local businesses that offer the products and services they are searching for. Foursquare detects your location and provides recommendations based on previous searches and visits, user-provided interests and through recommendations of other users. Since its creation in 2006, the application boasts 45 million users and is available in English, German, French, Indonesian, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Thai, Japanese, and Turkish. Adding your business to Foursquare allows you to manage your business contact information, photos, tips, as well as create specials and discounts. You also get access to see visitor statistics and reviews.
From the welcome to Foursquare Ads page, enter your business' name and location in the prompted areas. This is a critical first step to avoid duplicate business entries.
