Yelp Platform Springs Forward: Book 5 New Categories of Business on Yelp

Notice anything different when you woke up this morning? The bright warmth on your face?  It’s called sunshine! That song in the air? Birds! And what about those lovely clicking and tapping sounds all around you? That is the music of Yelpers everywhere, booking and ordering from local businesses directly on Yelp about 1.5 million times to date. We spent all Winter helping you survive the snowpocalypse by sending food delivery straight to your door and booking escapes to tropical getaways and Napa wine tours, and now it’s time to ring in Spring with a fresh crop of partners that have made five new categories of businesses transactable on Yelp Platform!

Yes, the great outdoors is beckoning, and Yelp wants to help you answer its call. That’s why we partnered with Vimbly to make activities from over 5,000 local vendors instantly bookable on Yelp. Rent a paddle board, take a photo safari, or parachute out of a plane! If you’re a golfer (or you just really enjoy driving a golf cart around and drinking beer outside), you can even book a tee time on Yelp thanks to our partnership with GolfNow. It’s all just par for the course with Yelp Platform!

Send beautiful blooms from a local florist to a special someone (PSA: Mother’s Day is on the horizon) through our new partnership with BloomNation, get vacay ready with spa and salon treatments through Vagaro, and party like it’s Spring Break 1999 with VIP bottle service and table booking through Yelp’s first nightlife partner, TableList

But why stop there? Spring is for the new and adventurous. Maybe this is the year you heed that little voice in your head and take the plunge… by becoming a great local business owner yourself!
