What Is Yelp?

To quote the Yelp website “Yelp allows consumers to share the experiences they’ve had with local businesses and lets business owners share information about their business with their customers. Simply put, it’s word of mouth– amplified.”

Yelp allows businesses to create a listing for their company that can be searched by potential customers to see what others have had to say about the goods or services offered.  It can also be accessed by current customers to leave feedback or reviews.  This is a great way to showcase what you do and who you are.  Plus it’s a great tool to see what your customers think of you so that you know what you’re doing right and what you might want to improve upon.  Click here for the yelp business page.

Yelp has also created a great phone app to compliment their web service that can show potential customers where your business is and give information while on the go.  Click here for the yelp mobile app page.  I love this app. 

Also from Yelp’s website:

Over 39 million people visited Yelp in November 2010 to make spending decisions. To help business owners get the most out of their online presence, Yelp offers a suite of FREE tools for business owners.

  • Communicate with your customers– privately and publicly
  • Track how many people view your business page
  • Add photos, a detailed business description, up-to-date information, history, and specialties
  • Announce special offers and upcoming events
  • Recommend other businesses

We have created our listing for Flygare & Associates and would ask that anyone who has used our services or worked with us take a second and click here to review us on Yelp.  Once you have created your own listing let us know and we will return the favor. 

Thanks in advance.

Have a great January, and I’ll talk with you again next month,
