Austin, Texas– Foursquare’s history with South By Southwest Interactive is well known. The geo-social firm created a stir by launching its platform at this conference in 2009, and then it brought in a whopping 100,000 new users with game activities – real-life ones – around the SXSWi premises last year.
But being a golden child will only warrant a footnote in the digital marketing history books if Foursquare ultimately fails to monetize. That’s why we called upon Eric Friedman, the company’s director of business development, to get his insights on what marketers need to know about Foursquare’s new app.
Friedman also gives the scoop on what his team has in store for SXSWi 2011 – including a concert by rapper Big Boi – in this video:
