Vide-OH-my! That Makes Me Wanna Buy

Today we're excited to announce that Yelp advertisers now have the option to add video to their business profile page. I've personally viewed hundreds of these videos and I have to say that they can really help yelpers get a sense of a business's ambiance, personality and specialties in a very short amount of time.

I don't know the guys from Let It Ride Design, but I do know this, if I'm ever in San Diego and in need of some creative design work - I know who to call for a quote. Why? For starters they have great reviews, but beyond that, well... see for yourself.





Now clearly, taking the entertaining "Spinal Tap" approach to video isn't for all businesses. We are working with the fine folks at TurnHere to help biz owners create something that captures the essence of their business. These guys are good, and the proof is in the pudding. Consider how connected you feel to these fine establishments after viewing their videos: PR Motorsports, Strings Restaurant, Dr. Jarrod Cornehl, Genki-Ya Sushi, Cole Hardware or Fine Arts Gilcee & Frames.

If you are a current advertiser with Yelp please contact your account manager for more information. If you are interested in learning more about becoming an advertiser and getting a free video for your business listing, please drop us a note at yelpads@yelp.com.
