Yelp 101 — Fast tips to get started with Yelp for your Business


If you’re not already on Yelp, or you’re not sure, sim­ply search for your com­pany name using the search box at the top of the web­site. If your busi­ness is not listed, visit the Yelp Busi­ness Cen­ter and cre­ate an account (it’s free.)

Yelp allows busi­nesses to upload pho­tos, set a price range, share infor­ma­tion about park­ing, pay­ment types, busi­ness hours, loca­tion, busi­ness his­tory, a meet the owner sec­tion and so on.

Why should I care about Yelp?

These days 90% of con­sumers trust “peer rec­om­men­da­tions” so being proac­tive and estab­lish­ing a good pres­ence on Yelp (and Face­book, YouTube, etc.) is extremely impor­tant.

And Yelp is Huge.  Like it or not you have to play the game, get your busi­ness on Yelp, other social media and local search sites. Just a few good reviews can shoot you to the top of Google and sep­a­rate you from your com­pe­ti­tion. Be active and take advan­tage of Yelp because the ROI can be amazing.

If you don’t have the time or man­power to get your busi­ness setup and to main­tain Yelp and other essen­tial Social Media and Local Search sites then you can always hire a social media mar­ket­ing com­pany like Pixel Dust to do it for you. Luck­ily it’s not that expen­sive (at least not with us) and we offer cus­tomiz­able pack­ages that fit your busi­ness needs.

Con­nect­ing online through Yelp cre­ates value for your cus­tomers. Never miss an oppor­tu­nity to engage with your loyal (and poten­tially new) fans.

You’ll find many more ideas in our video above.  And be sure to like our Face­book page.

Good luck and Happy Yelping!
