The owner of http://bikramyogashelton.com and I made a discovery over the weekend… you can merge your existing “fan” / “like” page with your location / check-in page (see the merged page here: http://facebook.com/bikramyogashelton) You keep all likes from both and get the functionality of both, in one place.
So when people check-in, this links back to your full page from their newsfeed instead of the initial places page that was just a map.
This is kind of like claiming your Google Places page and it’s equally important! If you own a small business that has an address that customers come to and you want public traffic and new customers, this is perfect for you!
Comedy clubs, salons, restaurants, stores, gyms, yoga studios, golf courses…
Why Check In? [HD]
Here is Facebooks official documentation/faq/how-to on merging:
