Case Study: RadioShack Finds Foursquare Customers Spend More

After a tepid start to location-based services, RadioShack fully embraced Foursquare, finding that customers who checked in spent more and were more likely to buy wireless products. The company saw an uptick in buzz as an innovator, too. Now, RadioShack is a close partner of Foursquare, serving as a launch partner for some of its badge offerings, and running a major Foursquare campaign around the holidays last year, Holiday Hero. This year, RadioShack will run a “So Right” badge campaign on Foursquare and look to increase use of location-based tools by associates as the company de-centralizes its operations.
