We finally see the first local business on foursquare to offer a mayor deal. I expected to see Starbucks or some other franchise but a food court business got there first. Amazing. Hidangan Pantai Timur, if you weren’t so far out in Kajang, I would go be mayor and support your bold move into Foursquare.
So I thought I’ll interview the mayor to see what it’s like to claim the first Foursquare offer in Malaysia and I noticed the mayor of Hidangan Pantai Timur is also the owner of the stall, who has probably checked in no less than 19 times. If Seme continues to do so, would any of their customers be able to enjoy the offer? Seme, if you offer a mayor deal, the idea is for your customers to become the mayor, not the owner.
Some business owners have been checking in to Foursquare and using it to push out notifications and tips to promote their businesses. Once you are ready to offer a mayor deal, could you perhaps delete your own and your staff’s checkins so that your customers can be rewarded?
