With Careful planning and innovation, we can make this rising star the supernova it deserves to be.

  6. 6. Groupon  Pair with Groupon  Two online powers, combined to create a super power  People who are using Groupon and don’t know about FourSquare will discover the site and vice versa
  7. 7. PR  PR, writing press releases and advisories about events that FourSquare is hosting  This will attract people to the places that events are happening through unpaid, credible sources. Money conscious and efficient.
  8. 8. Success  We will track the success of the marketing by seeing how many people check into foursquare  We will track success with Groupon on how many people purchase their deals!
  9. 9. Sponsorships  Get sponsorships by hosting large events, like have a big club night, and have a certain amount of people check in at that club  We then get a share of the money that the club makes that night. The same goes for sporting events, concerts, etc.
  10. 10. Money Allocation  They will allocate money by doing niche marketing to people who check into locations. For example, if some one checks into a gym, they workout, so the advertising would pop up a yoga house.  The same goes for people who check into music venues, being introduced to other music venues.
