I have been with Yelp for 5 years (5 star rated with about 50 visible reviews) and here is the low down..
Yelp is bigger on the West Coast, folks on the East Coast may not have as much luck..
I have a special on Yelp that is $75 for $100 and I get $52.50 out of it. I get paid monthly from them, my last Yelp check was $511 I think it was. In the 5 years they have paid me approx 8K when I last look at the number last month and I have never had an issue with being paid.
Because we work very hard at giving the customers a good experience, they have left awesome reviews that help sell my company. I don't do any shady stuff like asking friends to do reviews or paying money for reviews.. the work speaks for itself. Because of these online cheerleaders that validate what I do, it makes for a lower marketing budget.
This is like encap cleaning.. every company should be doing it. Its a no brainer.
So they are limited to a $25 discount on the entire job?Yes it is confusing at first..
Customer buys $100 credit for only $75..
My cut of the $75 is $52.50..
Don't get caught up in that number though.. the average ticket is over $250. They are also far more loyal than group on or living social.. so its a good way to build a customer base.
So is this something one can adjust to there listing on their own or do you need to speak to a rep?
Thanks for the info.For the Yelp deal, you can use one of their offers like the $75 for $100 or you can make your own. You only get charged if you sell one. You get a nifty dashboard so you can see all whats going on with your profile.
I was wrong, my last check from Yelp for last month was $577.50..
