How to Claim Your Foursquare Venue


Published on

I created this preso for @4sqdayLV 2012 to be held 4/16/12 at @CallawayGolfLV. As a foursquare super user level 2 and the Social Media Coordinator of Southern Wine & Spirits of Nevada, I help to clean up foursquare's non-policed and user-generated service. One of the best tools I know of is for businesses to claim their venues. Cheers! Hit me up at @JohnMischief if you have any questions.
