I am curious to hear if anyone is using Yelp as a marketing tool. My experience has been that property owners and managers have found me on Yelp - more than I expected. I have curtailed my efforts in using Yelp for a couple of reasons that I will discuss in a future post.

Not familiar with Yelp? This short video explains how the site works. It's a little different than others.

Hey Tom.  Looking through some of your old posts...trying to find the top 50 directories so I can bookmark for some new people I'm teaching on here.

Anyway, we are on Yelp and I think I've gotten a few customers from there. But, the bigger win is Kuszu and I've had several call me and several from there that I can see directly went to my site and then filled out a free consultation request.  HGTV now has Kudzu fed into their website and I think that is helping...so they go HGTV to Kudzu to my site (and sometimes call along the way or after they reach my site.

Oh, and of course...my FAVORITE site...Angies List.  I get a lot of biz from there and have higher close rate and higher avg job size (and nicer customers).
