This template will show you how to respond to Yelp reviews.
Before anyone makes a purchase, visits a restaurant, goes on holiday or buys anything, they trawl through the reviews on Google, they look for recommendations on TripAdvisor and they read the advice of others on Yelp.
Customers have the power to share their experiences with the world through online websites like Google, Yelp, and Facebook.
Yelp is one of the big five review platforms. Although similar to Google, in the way they ‘’connect people with great local businesses”, Yelp focuses on long-form reviews as opposed to short one-liners. It provides the kind of in-depth, thorough review that every wary customer craves.
