Foursquare = Check-in when you are there.
Appointy = Check-in before you are there.
Note: Voice is missing in this video but it is self explanatory. We will upload a new video with voice pretty soon and thank you for watching.
Unlike Foursquare, Appointy allows your clients to check-in even before they actually reach your place and thus increasing the chances of inviting their friends to your Business.
Difference between foursquare and Appointy.
|Appointy for Businesses||FourSquare for Businesses|
|Clients can Pre-book and check-in before||Clients can only Check-in from the Location|
|Sufficient time for friends to react to check-in||Finding a friend is by chance|
|Special discount can be attached to check-ins, for friends||Discounts are provided at the location|
|Real reviews only as it is collected after service||Anyone can write To-Dos or reviews|
|Rewards and discounts only to real loyal clients||Social badges and offers to Mayors with most check-ins|
So what should you do next? Stop using Foursquare and start using Appointy. No, Start using both. Appointy will allow your clients to check-in before and will provide sufficient time to invite clients and linking with Foursquare will allow them to check-in when they will be at your location.
So, with both Appointy and Foursquare, a community of people will help you in building your business.
