Looks like Yelp is going after those companies that claim to improve reviews by soliciting them from customers via survey software.

...ask for them! It really is that simple. In Repped I explain the importance of funneling your customers to the review site that will benefit you the most. That's exactly what The Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale does, with this card prominently displayed on the front desk: You'll notice a handful of brilliant elements to this card:…

Well this card says "Share your experience online and save 15% on your next visit...."

Are they trying to make the connection that you get the discount when you leave a review? Quite possibly. However, why then go ahead and provide the discount code without first requiring the review? The code is "DIRECT" which to me suggests they are trying to get you to book with them directly, so they save on booking engine fees.

I agree that a discount is not even needed--and if you read my post, that is not the focus of my recommendation. I certainly wouldn't recommend offering a discount, as it is simply not needed.

Just asking for a review is what a lot of businesses fail to do. :-)

By now, you’ve certainly heard the tale of Cella, Robert and the Jet’s Pizza public firing. No? Here’s a quick recap. A teenager in Texas decided to use Twitter to express her displeasure at having to start work at a local pizza franchise. Even though she didn't name the pizzeria, the manager somehow saw her…

A couple of years ago, we started adding review sites to our social media monitoring and new research from Software Advice explains why. In fact, a single chart from their research explains why: Eighty-six percent of respondents would pay more for a residential service provider with higher...

If working on your fitness is one of your 2015 resolutions, maybe learning/improving your tennis game in Hawaii might be the solution. Today Andy shares his tennis experience at Four Seasons Lanai at Manele Bay. — “The trick to beating Roger Federer is to hit one more ball in, than him.”...
