Why are check-ins are so important to your business? Those who have been marketing on Facebook for years know that viewership of your business posts are down. Facebook now hides many business post from people who liked your page. Facebook needed to produce revenue so they limited business reach on Facebook hoping to have businesses pay so more people would see your posts.
However; there are ways to help your business show up more on the time lines of your customers. How does this help? A check in is a lot like a referral. People often ask friends for recommendations on things such as dining out and other local venues. Check ins are a lot like referrals. When someone checks in to your business on Facebook all their friends see where they are.
Let's take a look at the numbers; if your business was able to receive 50 check-ins per day from Facebook friends, that means each day 10,000 people are seeing your business name and information because an average person has about 200 Facebook friends. What other advertising media offers you that kind of exposure for free?
