Yelp Advertising for Local Business

Yelp is an ideal advertising platform ideal for many local B2C business industries – contractors, in-home services, brick and mortar services and restaurants in particular. Yelp advertising opportunities include local search ads to drive calls, clicks to your website, and even direct inquiries through Yelp’s messaging system and the Yelp app.

We’re happy to crunch the numbers at no cost and see if your business and location is a good fit for Yelp Advertising.

Benefits of Working with a Certified Yelp Advertising Partner

Save Time & Money

Optimizing a campaign yourself is tedious. A certified partner is able to maximize the use of Yelp ads and can save you a substantial amount of money and effort in the long run.

Professional Best Practices

Yelp is a relatively young platform when compared with Google Ads or Facebook Ads, but trained and Yelp-certified PPC expertise still yields the best results.

Exclusive Features

In addition to Enhanced Profile features, you'll receive exclusive data to drive smart advertising decisions and have early access to new features as the platform grows.

The Importance of Advertising on Yelp Locally

As a Yelp Advertising Partner, Jack & Bean manages Yelp advertising campaigns for businesses to maximize their return on advertising spend. Some of the industries we work with regularly include construction, HVAC, damage restoration, and pest control. In all cases, we often see high rates of conversion as compared to other platforms given that Yelp users are more likely to be in the purchase stage of their customer journey.

Yelp ads are particularly effective for local business marketing. Since 79% of Yelp visitors make a purchase within a week of searching for a business, those companies who are advertising on Yelp are positioned to receive qualified traffic to their profile. If you aren’t ready to start up advertising on Yelp, simply optimizing your profile will help drive qualified traffic your way.
