Yelp Is Starting To Work With Local Businesses For Yelp Deals

Posted Aug 26, 2010

Yelp’s core service is reviews that people leave about local businesses. Local businesses with the best reviews on Yelp tend to have higher revenues as well. Now local businesses are starting to offer Yelp-only deals for customers. “Historically, we have provided value to our 36 million monthly unique visitors by helping them find a great local business when they need a product or service,” stated Yelp’s Director of Local Business Marketing. “As you will see today in San Diego, and soon in other cities, we have been working with some of the best local businesses — as identified by the Yelp community — to highlight some great deals for our users.” [Yelp Blog]
