Getting Started (And Taking Control of) Your Yelp Page

by Scott on May 11, 2017

Review sites are powerful tools, and as Spiderman can tell you, with great power comes great responsibility. Scott Safadi of Cal Bay Property Management recommends taking control of your Yelp page and promoting yourself as an industry leader. But how do you even get started?
Signing up is easy. Head on over to biz.yelp.com to claim your business as your own. You’ll create an account similar to the ones Yelp reviewers make when signing up. From there, you’ll have the chance to provide useful information about your business to Yelp readers. Be sure to include your website, your office hours and your contact information.
One great way to maximize your Yelp presence is to offer an incentive for stopping by to see one of your properties. Yelp Deals are a great way to do this. Consider offering a discount on an application fee for prospective tenants who check in via Yelp.
Once you’ve got your Yelp business page up and running, the next step is finding folks to write honest reviews. Who better to look to than your current residents? Again, incentives are key here – but never bribe anyone for a good review. Instead, provide e
xcellent service and when a tenant is particularly grateful, ask them to review you on Yelp!
