recently made some updates to make it easier than ever to claim your business and to get started with your first Foursquare special.
If you already have a venue created, there should be text under your contact information that says "Are you the manager of this business"? Simply click on that link and it will take you to an easy, three-step process.
1) Confirm your business information - You just have to give them a contact url from your website or from other sites such as Yelp, Citysearch, or Google. Be sure you have a legit e-mail address or phone number where they can contact you.
2) Create your first special: Get creative! Provide an offer for the "Mayor" of your venue or setup a deal for any visitor. You can also specify a customer gets a deal if they check-in X amount of times. The sky is the limit!
3) Click Submit and you are finished! A Foursquare representative should get in contact with you to help you take ownership of your venue and get started with incentives for your customers!
All of this should take you about 5 minutes of less. No sweat! I posted a pic of what they process looks like.
