Yelp is the most popular review site, and you can’t afford to ignore it. Eighty percent of consumers have changed their minds about purchasing a product or service after reading a negative online review. If you haven’t claimed your business on Yelp yet, there’s no time like the present!
How to claim your Yelp business listing
- Search for your business on Yelp and click “Work here? Claim this business.”
- Create a business owner account with your name and business email address.
- To verify ownership of your business, an automated call will be made to your location. Click on the “Call Me Now” button and dial in the four-digit number displayed on your screen when prompted for a verification code.
- Once you enter your code, you’ll have access to the business dashboard. To make use of all the features, you’ll also need to confirm your email address.
Now that you’ve claimed your page, you can respond to reviews. Remember to respond to every review—even if it’s just a quick, “Thank you!”
