Followers: who are they and why are they so important? Well, your followers are your loyal customers and people that like what you’re doing. They are the people who want to know what you’re up to and what you’re serving. They are the ones coming into your bar time after time, and most importantly; they are the ones spending the big bucks on your drinks!
One of the most popular features on the TapHunter mobile app is the ability for users to follow their favorite watering holes. When following a location, they’re the first to know when that spot changes something on their drink list or has event coming up via mobile push notification. This is why your followers are so important. The more followers you have, the more push notifications that go out. And the more notifications that go out, the more fans will come into your bar to spend money!
So not that you understand the who and the why, how do you gain more followers? Don’t worry, we have created this quick tip list to help increase your followers!
