Foursquare specials do attract customers in Sydney and Australia


We have seen the success of retailers and restaurants in the US using Foursquare as a marketing tool, but in Australia we have not seen all that much action yet.

However, I noticed Wagamama in Sydney CBD has been one of the earlier businesses in Australia to use Foursquare as a marketing tool.

The have many specials on such as a free soup for every 5th check-in.

Last night i noticed for a sustained period of time (2 hours +) there were 10+ people checked into the venue.

I am yet to come across any other Australian businesses using Foursquare with such results.

Below is a screen shot of Wagamama last night attracting a raft of Foursquare users.

  • Last night Wagamama held a national tweet up, and encouraged people to check in on Foursquare, which probably explains the number of people there!

  • Well i missed that part didn't I…

    Thanks Grant!

  • Wagamama in Brisbane CBD whenever I've been there has at least 10+ people on foursquare — they have the same special.
