Yelp

Filed under: facebook, social media, twitter — Tags: , , , — webcubic @ 7:49 am

Yelp is a popular website where individuals can review and rate places, events, and products.  The mostly likely uses are to review restaurants, hotels, and retail stores. Before going to a restaurant or to check out what others say about it before you go, you can check it out on Yelp.

NOTE: the five most popular categories are restaurants, shopping, food, automotive, beauty and spas.

Yelp is used for and will continue to be for many other things.  There are already reviews for home services, real estate, health and medical, and pets.  This list will continue to grow in months to come.

As a business owner or manager, you need to have a presence in Yelp.  You can “claim” your business so that you can provide more information to the visitor.  Yelp is popular enough that many businesses (especially restaurants) already have recognizable “Yelp” stickers in their establishments.

As a Yelp user, you can post your honest reviews about your experience with a business or event.  While you’re at it, you can set up your profile on Yelp to send your reviews directly to Facebook or to Twitter.  This is a great way to post one time and maintain an active presence on multiple social media sites.

 Do you Yelp?
