How to Get Your Foot in the Door With Yelp Enhanced Profile

As opposed to a basic Yelp profile, Yelp Enhanced Profile helps a brand represent its listing page with features that include an expanded “About Us” page as well as the ability to block ads from the competition. Since consumers want more than just a good restaurant on Yelp, many home improvement stores and retail shops can gain more visibility. To put it bluntly, all local businesses can benefit from Yelp, and their marketing ROI can significantly increase via Yelp Enhanced profile.


This Yelp profile option has all of the features provided with the Basic profile plus the following advanced features:-

Agency access
Multiple logins

Why Yelp Enhanced Profiles Are So Important

Brands that upgrade to a Yelp Enhanced profile significantly increase their ability to rank higher, engage consumers and convert their target audience. By restricting competitor’s ads, businesses can keep visitors on their profile page instead of distracting them with ads that take them away.
