At Yelp, we celebrate local businesses every day. After all, Yelp isn't just a place where consumers voice their opinions -- it's a website where conversations take place between business owners and their customers. Yelp's free business tools allow business owners to respond to their reviewers (both privately and publicly); it's a great way for businesses to converse with their most vocal customers while managing their online reputations.
Here's a clip of Yelp COO Geoff Donaker at the event:
We owe a special thanks to Google, the City of San Francisco, and Mayor Newsom's office for inviting us to participate.
