Whether they have a cracked phone screen, red wine on a favorite shirt, or a broken bike chain, people search on Yelp to find the services they urgently need. Amidst the countless options they have to choose from, how can you get your Local Services business to stand out?
Completing your Yelp page and keeping it up-to-date is key to attracting new customers. Here are some steps to make sure your page is in tip-top shape.
4 Important Page Updates For Home Services Businesses
1.Post Photos of Your Work
Make sure customers are seeing the best of your business by uploading photos to your Yelp page. Local Services businesses with at least one photo average 121% more page views and customer leads* from Yelp! These photos don’t just make for a pretty page- they help Yelp users make a decision and can help set your business apart from the competition. There is no limit to the number of photos you can upload, so upload a few today.
2.Add Your Business Phone Number
Yelp users want to talk to you! Be sure to add your phone number to your Yelp page so they can easily connect with you. Local Services businesses with a phone number average 66% more customer leads* from Yelp. This means more clicks to your website and more phone calls to your business.
3. Include Your Website
Websites provide visitors with the extra information they need to make a purchasing decision (i.e., services offered, pricing, etc.). Local Services businesses who add their website to their Yelp page average 60x more phone calls! Update your Yelp page with a link to your website so Yelp users can learn more about the services you offer.
4.Update Your Business Hours
Closed on Mondays? Open late on the weekends? Let Yelp users know when you’re available. Local Services businesses with hours listed average 40% more customer leads from Yelp!* Be sure to post your regular schedule, and add special hours for holidays and other closings.
