The fun started with a swarm of us checking in at Heathrow and the app suggested we could start a flashmob, now that just stirred all sorts of funny images in my mind. Imagine random strangers just grouping together to start a spontaneous dance, just because you can.
I became mayor of the outdoor gym and ousted someone else in the process. As we travelled I also became mayor of an amazing waterfall and added some pictures. Now for those of you unaware of the app, it is basically a case of checking in the most in a place that earns you the mayor label… now in my mind this is an opportunity for a loyalty reward.
In my video I make links with business lessons you could draw from this fun app. What totally impressed me is that when I got home, Foursquare knew because I checked in at home and promptly sent me a message to ask: Hey we noticed you were on a trip, would you like to share some tips? How cool is that? and when did you ask this question last from your customers?
