Yelp Advertising

Has anyone seen any return in advertising with YELP? I was thinking about advertising with them since I just recieved a call form them.

Yelp has tried to take lead in online reviews and is failing in my opinion. They can leave hard marks and take control of your company without your permission. I would stick with Google and Facebook reviews. This always made more sense to us.

Free Business Yelp

I signed up for the Free business listing on Yelp. They offered me $300 credit for yelp ads. What I noticed is that other yelp advertisers appear on a yelp advertising page kinda like google adwords.
I heard form a internet marketer that Bing Advertising was cheap/affordable and provided good results and is often overlooked / considered by potential advertisers.

I have found that Yelp is expensive for what it offers. There are better avenues. They also have no data to share about results which makes me highly suspicious. I find Google Adwords and Bing Ads are a better way to go for my window cleaning and gutter cleaning business.

Many businesses that have used Yelp ads report a very low return on investment. Don't do Google paid ads or Facebook paid ads as they can be very hard to set up and the costs can get away from you in just a matter of days.

Better to link to your Google Map from everywhere you can (like on this forum) and your Map will be much more likely to show up in the 3-pack in Google search.

Also ask for reviews! Google Maps runs on reviews, and your prospects respond to them.

Yelp has pretty shady business practices and is a double-edged sword in my opinion.

I haven't found Yelp to be great, especially because they seem to take a vengeance on you if you don't continue to use their services (they make your listing drop in the yelp rankings).

I used Yelp ads at one point and I did make a profit with it, but it wasn't enough to be worth my time, where other methods of advertising were much more lucrative for me. When I called them and told them I wanted to stop, they actually showed a bit of anger towards me over the phone and I saw my listing drop dramatically soon after. I can't confirm it for sure, but I would venture to guess there is a lot of truth behind it.

I'm a yelp hater. They feel like the new version of the mob. Very aggressive, terrible ROI (unless you're a restaurant), very vindictive if you try to leave their services. And one more time because they suck - TERRIBLE ROI.
