Yelp Calls On Small Businesses To Help Them Come Up With Ideas

By: Chris Crum - May 13, 2014

Yelp has put a call out for new members of the Yelp Small Business Advisory Council. Any local business owner is encouraged to apply.

Members participate in an annual summit at Yelp’s headquarter, provide input on products under development, brainstorm new ideas for company executives to consider, and serve as a resource for other business owners who have questions about Yelp’s various offerings.

“Yelp’s features and services for small business owners have evolved quite a bit over the last four years thanks, in part, to the efforts of Yelp’s Small Business Advisory Council (YSBAC),” says Yelp’s Darnell Holloway. “Since 2010 we’ve regularly met with and solicited feedback from this diverse group of business owners who are selected to represent the greater community of local businesses on Yelp.”

Yelp says council members have helped it come up with Yelp Metrics, business owner review comments on mobile, the revenue estimate tool, the activity feed, and some performance-based advertising options.

You can apply here.

    I have an idea!

    Yelp, leave us alone if we ask. Really, that’s I want. Bugger off and delete my listing from your pathetic, extortionist, drive-by snarkist excuse of a site.

    Ok Yelp, Here is some advise… do us all a favor go to the extortionist yelp computer, bring up the crap data you have collected, hit the “delete” button then promptly throw the computer out the 20th floor window. Let me know how that works out for you.
