Yelp has been around since 2004 and emerged as a significant way to find business information online. If you run a local business, Yelp can be a critical cornerstone of your online presence and you might not be aware of it. Yelp has become the go-to resource for millions of people looking for information about local businesses. Many times business do not realize that they are relying on Yelp as a social media search engine. A prime example would simply be that Yelp is used by Apple as a significant source for maps and Siri’s verbal searches concerning local businesses. Apple phones represent 40 plus percent of the market for smart phone users in the US. Thus when people ask Siri to find local business represented by your industry niche and you are not listed in Yelp, it could lead to lost revenue.
An average of 142 million users visit Yelp every month, and millions of people make purchasing decisions with Yelp every day. By activating a Yelp Business Page, you’ll be able to upload photos, add a link to your website and ensure that your hours, phone number, and other important pieces of information are always up to date. This is something that Muzeum can set up, monitor and maintain monthly.
