David,

We are not fond of Yelp, nor would we advise that you spend that money on this...there is so much more you can get out of that money.. especially with the type of competition one has in your Los Angeles marketplace.  .A

I don't like the people that hang out on Yelp for the most part. That seems a little steep. I think they are quick to trigger a bad review.

No haven't tried it and wouldn't, especially not for that fee. I wonder if anyone is having success with Yelp in our business?!

My first reaction was to say "have you lost your mind?" I have not heard about a lot of success in this regard. $800/month can buy you some really excellent marketing outside of YELP.

I hate Yelp. It is for restaurant complainers, not Realtors. If you want to hear a very serious story as to why I say this David Rosen please call me.

You will be glad you did before you waste any money.

My suggestion is take that $400-$800 a month and give 25% to me, 25% to your favorite church/charity and invest the remaining 50% in your retirement.  That way, we are all happy! ;)

Thanks all for your answers which universally reject paying for Yelp. I'm entirely in agreement, but I like to hear from on-line lead generation companies to see their approach & what they offer. But more than that I like to see what the agent community has to say about them. Thanks again.

David - That seems a little steep, but I wouldn't know because I have never looked into being a featured agent on Yelp. If you can get one legit transaction per month, it might be worth it, but I am not the one to ask whether it can be successful or not.

RUN AWAY!!!  Yelp is only good if you have a lot of positive reviews.  At which point, you'll be one of the top listed agents organically.  That can save you the money.

 

I stopped messing with Yelp a while back.
