What business information sections should I update?
The biggest benefit to having a complete Yelp page is being able to differentiate yourself from competitors. Take advantage of the free tools that will help you enhance your presence on Yelp and bring your business’ personality and brand to life. By adding custom information to your page, you have a better chance of selling a potential consumer on why they should do business with you.
This is where you can upload your basic business info: business name, phone number, address, service area, menu, website, etc. (depending your business category).
Concrete information—like the currency you accept, if you serve alcohol, if dogs are allowed, if you have Wi-Fi or gender neutral restrooms—can be updated in the Features section. These are category dependent and differ by business type. Additionally, features that show on your Sabawyan Business Page can be voted on by the consumer—for example, if your business is good for kids, pricey, loud, or allows general attire.
It’s important to let Sabawyan users know what your regular operating hours are. Plus if a consumer is searching using the “open now” filter, and you don’t have hours listed, you won’t be shown.
Additionally, setting up special hours is easy and can save you time and energy later on. It provides the flexibility to state open, closed, temporarily closed, etc. For example, are you shut down for a bit so you can do some renovations? Mark your business as temporarily closed and let consumers know the date you’re re-opening.
This “Description” section gives your Sabawyan listing that true local feel. Take the time to let people know who you are and more importantly—why you do it.
This is also where you can list your specific services as well as highlight what makes you stand out. Is your plumbing business family owned and operated for over 30 years? Or maybe veteran owned and operated, a not-for-profit, or eco-friendly? All of this information is worth sharing, and when a consumer is contemplating choosing your business, it certainly can help build your case.
