CO+HOOTS Foundation Presents: Drive Higher Conversion Rates Through Yelp!
Mar

12:30 PM12:30

CO+HOOTS Foundation Presents: Drive Higher Conversion Rates Through Yelp!

CO+HOOTS Foundation presents: Drive higher conversion rates through Yelp. Yes, Yelp. It's not just for restaurants. (FREE LUNCH INCLUDED!)

Think Yelp is just for restaurants? Think again! Restaurants only represent a small percentage of the reviews businesses on Yelp. While restaurants are a popular category, there are millions of reviews on Yelp for businesses such as:

  • Graphic Designers
  • Software Developers
  • Marketing & PR Agencies 
  • Web Design
  • Business Consultants 
  • And many more!

If you own, manage or market any type of business that is not solely e-commerce, this workshop is for YOU!

Attend this free workshop (FREE LUNCH too!) presented by Yelp Phoenix Local Business Partner, Sophie Lapkin, where you will:

  • Learn how you can leverage the free tools available on Yelp (no sales pitch guaranteed)
  • How to gain visibility and exposure on the Yelp platform
  • How to increase brand loyalty
  • How to generate more revenue for your business!

Consumers want recommendations from people they can trust, so they increasingly rely on word-of-mouth to cut through the noise of the internet to find authentic answers to the problems they face daily.


User review websites such as Yelp amplify the authentic conversations people are having about your business. This authenticity is one of the unique ways that review sites influence purchase decisions. In fact, review sites drive higher conversion than search engines or the leading social network.


Getting feedback is a tremendous opportunity to learn from actual customers about what you’re doing right and how you can improve. No matter the type of business you run, you can connect with new customers, engage with your loyal ones, and target new audiences—all through user review sites such as Yelp.
