Foursquare Launches Pages For Business [blog.foursquare.com]
|Back in January of 2010, Intel became the first organization with a Page on foursquare. We hacked together a new template for them (look at our spec, with our crazy old logo!) and built it out by hand. And, for the last 18 months, we did pretty much that same thing for the next 3000-ish organizations that followed. |
Today we’re making foursquare Pages self-serve (to the great relief of our BizDev team). Any brand, organization, or publication can now create their own Page, gain followers, share Tips, check in, and reach their fans.
|There are a bunch of features that make this perfect for brands: |
•Reach the whole foursquare community with your Tips and check-ins (and push those check-ins to both Facebook Pages and Twitter).
•Let entire teams of people manage the same Page. With our new tool, you can make multiple people Page ‘managers,’ so that they can all contribute. It’s perfect for big organizations.
•From the web or your mobile phone, you can upload photos to your Tips and check-ins. It’s great for making them really shine for all of your followers.
•And, when your page is complete and you’ve added a few Tips, you’ll be featured in our Page Gallery.

I got lost on their site trying to find out how to do it.

I also gave up - a really terrible design.
Also in Chrome many of the links didn't work.

There are already some tutorials out. Here's one:[howto.cnet.com ].
Give it a few days, there'll be more tutorials, and the inevitable videos on the tube sites (if they aren't there already).
Seems like too good an opportunity for a brand to pass up, especially since Google+ seems reluctant to release this feature.
