27 Days to Building a Business Once and For All: Yelp

rohanMarch 18, 2017 by rohan

A lot of folks don’t like Yelp.

And understandably so.

The reality is though, if managed well, Yelp can be a strong predictable source of qualified traffic for a local service business.

Take a second and watch the video above for some Yelp strategies.

Here’s a couple  more things we do to stay competitive on Yelp:

  1. Take advantage of the Yelp photo carousel.  It costs a bit, but it makes your business stand out that much more from the competition.
  2. Try Yelp deals.  Something like $15 for a $30 discount can be enough to help you convert that browser into a buyer.
  3. Respond to all Yelp complaints in a calm and collective manner while offering the customer a solution.
  4. If at all possible, your response to unhappy clients should happen way before the customer gets an opportunity to leave a review on Yelp.
  5. 4-5 stars is super important. there is a huge fall-off in traffic and confidence when you get lower than 4 stars.  So it pays to find solutions to customer issues to avoid falling below the 4 star rating.

Here is our Yelp profile so far…

These are just a couple things we pay special attention to.

Be sure to check out the video above for more Yelp strategies and stay tuned until tomorrow when we get this case study back on the road.
