LoyalBlocks 101: Facebook Check-in Token

Posted by Joanna Braunold on Jul 31, 2013 10:17:51 AM

In this blog series, we take a look at different LoyalBlocks features and explain what they can do for your business. We want to make your LoyalBlocks experience as seamless and easy as possible.

fbcheckinToday we're going to take a look at one of our social sharing tokens - the Facebook Check-in Token. One of the great things about LoyalBlocks is the social integration, and how this can help your business grow. Using Facebook to spread the word about your business can really increase your exposure. Let's say I have a Facebook account with 910 friends (I do). If I post about your restaurant on my Facebook page, that's access to 910 people. If one of my friends likes that post, chances are that some of his friends will also see my post in their newsfeed... we're talking an exponential increase in your exposure here.

So now that we've established how much the Facebook Check-in Token can help your business, let's talk about how to set it up. If you'd like to set it up during the sign up process, head to the Get Social section. Step 2 lets you set up a Facebook Check-in Token. As usual, it's super easy - all you have to do is type in what you want to give to people who check-in to your location on Facebook.

The other set up option is in the Dashboard, once you've signed up to LoyalBlocks. Head to the "Tokens" section, and then select Facebook Token. Again, just write in there what you want to give away and you'll be up and running!

Some of our merchants are giving away some nice things as a "token" (geddit?!) of their appreciation to those who check-in on Facebook. Tropical Smoothie Cafe in Raleigh, North Carolina, offers 50% off a 24 oz. smoothie. Shear Artistry Salon in Diamond Bar, California, offers $1.00 off threading. Mason Jar Eatery in Kingsport, Tennessee, offers a massive 10% off the entire bill! Giving away something small (or in the case of Mason Jar, something big) to customers who are willing to promote your business for you is a great incentive - and a nice reward!
