Yelp announced “Check-in Offers” that within the business owner dashboard allows you to reward customers with a coupon when they “check-in” to your business. It provides a measurable way to reward your most loyal customers while attracting new ones.
Check-in offers is available now in the countries where Yelp offers a business dashboard, namely the US, Canada, UK, and Ireland. Wisely, Yelp is also restricting Check-in Offers from some SMB categories where check-ins aren’t realistic — plumbers, limo drivers, and others who go out to visit customers rather than vice versa.
When a consumer chooses “Use it Now!” for his Check-in Offer, it’ll disappear automatically from his device in a few hours time. The user or the business owner can also tap a button on the phone to mark the offer as used, expiring the timer immediately.
If a consumer chooses to “Save it!”, that Check-in Offer will be saved several places on their device: the “About Me” page; at the top of the business page where they earned that offer and on the Check-ins tab on the Yelp app. The user can then redeem the offer anytime, following the same process above.
