In the never ending struggle to acquire reviews that honestly reflect my relationship with my clients, I am taking a different tack today. Once again, Yelp filtered out reviews from real clients who think highly enough of my work to award me with 5 stars on Yelp. Unfortunately, Yelp’s “recommendation software” doesn’t share the view of MY OWN CLIENTS!! But the hell with Yelp! Here you can see comments from several of my SATISFIED CUSTOMERS, that they don’t want anyone to see. That is, until I buy advertising from them, and THAT JUST AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN!!
I don’t work in retail or the restaurant/hospitality sectors who get thousands of reviewable transactions a year. My client list is a fraction of that…and I’m having a good year! So if Yelp hides HALF of my reviews, is there any wonder why I’m pissed? Maybe one day they’ll figure out that they need to treat service sector businesses differently than those in retail/restaurant/hospitality.
But for now, Yelp, YOU STILL SUCK!!
