You can give daily or hourly discounts to members of certain teams, certain level trainers, or whoever’s occupying nearby gyms.
Use Pokémon to Draw Them In
Encourage passing Pokémon trainers to stop in to your business by reminding them of nearby Pokéstops, gyms, or just offering something special for trainers like free water or a public bathroom.
Plan a Pokémon Go Themed Party
Drop lures throughout the event, have prizes for trainers, offer special food or drinks – the sky is the limit to what you can offer for excited trainers.
Let Pokémon Invade Your Social Media
Update your social media graphics, take photos of Pokémon that are in your business or office, and talk about the craze on your various social media channels. Make sure to use tags!
