Are you tired of those stupid annoying phone calls from Yelp?

Do you want them to stop? Do you HATE YELP so much you could scream?

Here’s how to stop the Yelp calls.

Step 1:  Answer their call, or call them back. You can’t hide. They will NEVER stop calling. It’s just amazing.

Step 2: Tell them that Jeffrey Magner manages your marketing/advertising and give them my phone number. Seriously. I’ll end it for you. Tell them to call me and then hang up. Firmly request they do not contact you anymore. They can call me.


Those silly folks training their 23 yr old sales reps have no idea that they are creating such hatred of their platform. It’s just stupid. Oh, and they aren’t calling you to “check the details of your business”. They are calling to steamroll you. That’s how they roll. I know – they call me all the time.

Yelp Ads might actually make sense for your business at some point. Probably not – ever, in most cases – depending on where your business is located and what type of business you have. But after you’ve invested in solid SEO and you are ready to take things to the next level and are ready to explore, Yelp might be worth a look.

If you are a current Yelp advertiser and want to chat about whether it’s worth it or working out for you as it should, we’re more than happy to review it with you. There are some tips to get the most out of Yelp to increase your ROI.
