    Foursquare Ads to all small businesses around the world

    Here is a problem that all local business owners know: they want to get more customers, but tons of people walk by their storefront without coming in. We created Foursquare Ads to solve this problem. We can connect great local businesses with the people nearby that are most likely to become customers.

    Today, we’re opening Foursquare Ads to all small businesses around the world. We’re moving past the days when business owners have to figure out if a “like” or a “click” has any meaning in the real world; now they can tell if someone who saw their ad actually walks into their store. We built this to be simple and flexible, learning from our four years of data and relationships with over 1.5 million claimed businesses.

    Creating a Foursquare ad is super simple. All a business owner needs to do is go to and build their ad – by choosing a great photo of their space and either offering a special or highlighting a great customer tip. Then they set their monthly budget and push their ad live for people nearby to see.

    Any merchant can monitor how many people have viewed their ad, how many have tapped on it, and how many actually came into their store. Merchants know what they’re paying for – real actions and real customers. We’ve been testing it with a thousand businesses for the last few months, and the results have been great. We’ve posted some success stories, including Barcade, Bronx Beer Hall, and Sky Room. Take a look, and, if you’d like to start getting more customers today, sign up now.

    Big news: today we’re opening up Foursquare Ads to all small businesses around the world. | Foursquare Blog

    One more ads system for the small business owners, but this one is toward local businesses.

    Hey you can give it a try. Turn on your ad and they will instantly credit your Foursquare account with $50.

    I read through their offer. It looks like an interesting alternative to AdWords for local businesses.

    What is not clear is where the Foursquare ads display. The ads look pretty cool on their web page, but I have never seen ads like that displayed on any web site.
