How to manage geolocation feature and what is the power of geotags for business?

We are going to describe 7 ways to increase the use of geolocation and attract users’ attention to small businesses with the help of check-ins.

Seems like each user of any social media knows today about the option of geolocation. Someone has never used this opportunity to demonstrate an interesting place, a city or a country, while someone does not know how to survive without being checked in anywhere.

Is this feature important on social media? Or is it enough for brands just to pay attention to good visual marketing and the detailed content calendar?

Let’s check out here what are the advantages of geotagging for business accounts.

Geotagging and marketing strategy for business accounts

Geotagging is the process of attaching geographic data to any kind of information.

Geolocation as a popular feature of some social networks, such as Instagram or Facebook, is not an innovation today. It proposes everyone who uses gadgets the information about the location of various objects.

Brands and companies use check-in opportunities in order to increase the number of followers. It was popular when users were crazy about Foursquare and now the excitement associated with geolocation has not passed.

Marketers do not hurry to say “bye” to this feature.

How check-ins are important for businesses

With the help of geotags, potential customers can learn about the location of stores, tattoo studios, coffee shops, museums or any other business object and get timely info about promotions, discounts and bonus programs.

The marketers of these facilities are worth being envied: they certainly know what to do to make a business account perform better.

What are geotags for?

Users demonstrate their location for various reasons but most often they use geotags to:

  • Get information about the nearest objects.
  • Learn about the location of other users.
  • Leave feedback about the specific place; link important info (the attitude) to the data about the place.
  • Increase awareness and target audience.

7 Ways to Motivate Customers to check in

How to increase the number of check-ins and new users? Here are seven simple steps that will help:

  • Use existing marketing channels. Most business owners manage groups on social networks, a website or a blog. There you can remind customers that check-ins will give them bonuses. What exactly? This is the challenge for your brains.
  • Use print reminders. Facebook or Foursquare users should know such stickers. They can be found on the front doors in buildings, cash registers and other visible objects.

Check in offline stickers

  • Encourage the customers who used geotags with special offers, give them discounts and bonuses. Any client wants to feel a special attitude and get a VIP status. For example, many shops arrange the open-door night with unprecedented discounts for those customers who check in through social networks.

  • Prepare gifts. This is the old but proven method to achieve the client’s satisfaction. It can be a discount, a product or service of the company. It may be announced in advance or you can keep it in secret.
  • Involve the staff. The mass check-in process can start with your team’s efforts. They will add geotags that will be seen and picked up by their relatives and friends. The chain will be continued.
  • Use QR codes. Surprisingly, this kind of visual marketing, which some years ago stirred up many, is now undeservedly forgotten. But it can bring clients to Facebook or Instagram pages.

How to attract followers with geolocation option?

  • Arrange a charity campaign with an organization that needs help. Each check-in will collect a donation, which will positively affect charity and your business.
