Check-In Campaigns

Brands engage customers by rewarding them for check-ins
Implications - Location-based marketing is on the rise as more and more brands realize the potential for check-in-based campaigns. Offering rewards in return for check-ins, brands can effectively build brand loyalty and create a fun, interactive experience that engages the customer on a whole new level. Plus, with more consumers becoming comfortable with checking in wherever they go (regardless of whether there are rewards or not), check-in campaigns seem to be a natural progression in the world of social media marketing.
