The other day I posted an audio blog about using social location sharing apps to promote your business. I decided to walk through the apps on my iPhone to give you an example of how to do this. The apps I suggest using in the video are Foursquare, Gowalla, Yelp and Brightkite.
The great thing about location sharing is that everybody is doing it right now and it’s free. Get a little creative and figure out how you can drive new business using these free services. I believe location sharing services will only get more popular over the next year, so get an early start.
On Yelp you can customize your listing, add details and photos. My business, Jerad Hill Studios, is listed on Yelp and I have customized my listing to provide information for people who have never heard of my business before.
I would love to hear how you are using Social Location Sharing Services to promote your business. Please share your thoughts and ideas in the comment box.
