    Hi guys;

    I designing an Internet Marketing plan for a client, this includes a big event of some presentation of his product. He wants me to include Foursquare into the plan. The problem is that, I've never used foursquare not even for me, but I know how to use it thoug...

    I was thinking how to black hat boost his Foursquare campaign with fake checkins or any other things that I can do, do you know or have any expertise int the foursquare field? I will be eternally grateful.


    Thanks!

    What does using Foursquare for 'boosting' even mean? I just use it to see where my friends go eat, and get the occasional discount or freebie... I wasn't aware theres another element to it really.

    The market isn't that big and the functionality isn't that helpful if you want to promote there YET. I suggest you invest your time on Facebook and other proven social networking sites for now since Foursquare isn't really that friendly yet with blackhat methods.

    Go to youtube and type in foursquare marketing, business tutorial, and just watch the videos on what people are saying about using this app. Write some notes down and then go and talk to business owners or whom ever on how to implement foursquare into their biz....Think outside the box dude.................

    My boss wants me to start enhancing our company's online reputation and mentioned foursquare being something he wanted me to focus on.

    My plan was to buy a cheap/used android phone and use a mobile phone carrier that uses sim cards. Using the multiple phone numbers, the plan was to create multiple foursquare accounts to add high ratings and reviews to our store. I have yet to get the green light to start on this but this is how I thought about approaching it and can't guarantee it will work.

    Thats an ok idea but if i was him i would focus on yelp, foursquare just dont get that much traffic as other things you can focus on.

    Seems like a good idea, at least hes being proactive instead of asking you to clean up a mess.
