Yelp & Your Business: Attract More Customers During The Commonwealth Games
Tuesday, June 24, 2014 from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM (PDT)
The Commonwealth Games are coming to Glasgow in July 2014. As a result, tens of thousands of tourists, visitors and locals are expected to spend time in the city this July and August. A huge number of people will be looking for hotels, restaurants, bars, local services and other fun things to do in the city. Have you considered how you can encourage consumers to choose your business over others?
Yelp is a consumer website where people go to find great local businesses. In fact, 132 million people across the globe use Yelp to search for products or services every month. Businesses can list for free and there are a host of complimentary tools you can use to maximise your presence in advance of (and during) The Commonwealth Games.
RSVP today to reserve your seat at our free Business Owner Seminar in Glasgow on Tuesday 24th June from 5:00 - 7:30 pm. Come and meet other business owners at Wicked Lounge (within Wild Cabaret) where we’ll show you how to build out your Yelp listing and attract new customers. Join us for complimentary snacks, drinks, and insights from other local business owner experts at our interactive session which will feature:
Top tips on attracting new local and international customers during The Commonwealth Games
Suggestions on how to make your free listing stand out and how to respond to any reviews that you already have or may receive in the future

Think this may not be relevant to your business? Think again, Yelp is a review site for all types of businesses ranging from restaurants to bricklayers and accountants to dog groomers and everything in between. People use Yelp to help guide their purchase decision across all consumer facing business sectors.
Be sure to RSVP for this event as we have a limited number of seats.
