As I’m sure many of you have heard, PokémonGO! is the hot new app that recently flooded the market. The game is a modern-day adaptation to a card game known well among children who grew up in the 90’s. The game is a type of real-world gaming that allows you to interact with the world around you in a video game.
The game starts by using your GPS location provided by your phone to make Pokémon appear around you. You then throw Pokéballs at the Pokémon to “catch them,” going with the old Pokémon catch-phrase “Gotta Catch ‘Em All.” You only receive so many Pokéballs a day, but you can buy them for free along with other Pokémon catching materials in the store with real money. The game has been shown to increase physical activity and time spent outside because of the interactive interface. Download it today to see for yourself!
If you are looking to increase the traffic to your business you could consider offering incentives such as lowered drink prices or a free pastry, etc. if someone comes to your place of business to play PokémonGO. You could also set up a lure to attract more players to your business because a lure will bring more Pokémon to the area allowing your customers to catch them.
