Popular review sites such as Yelp allow you to claim your business listing and add details such as your website, hours, service area and photos, making your listing more useful and eye-catching – All for FREE! Aside from making your listing stand out, claiming it ensures that no one else can add false information AND that you will be alerted by Email when someone leaves a review. So, set aside ten minutes and get started!
First, get your own personal Yelp account. Keep in mind that the Email address you use is the one that will receive notification of reviews.
Find Your Pharmacy on Yelp
Search for your business from the Yelp home page. Though you will likely find that businesses are already added, this does not mean that someone has fraudulently claimed your business as their own. Click on the “Is this your business?” link below the listing. Enter the requested information and, when Yelp calls you to confirm business ownership, be ready to enter the 4-digit code they have given you.
If your business does not appear, scroll to the bottom of the list and click on the “Add a Business” button.
Fill out your Yelp Listing
Now that you own your page, fill out all the information you can, including your website address, hours, service area, specialties, history, business owner information and other recommended business. For all these, use you business’ key words.
Make sure you add photos. If you want people to visit your location, consider adding a photo of your storefront. That way, they’ll feel confident that they can find you. Photos of the staff, customers and items you sell are also helpful.
Set up and online deal if you want. And, do respond to reviews you have received, good OR bad.
You can come back and access your business page anytime from the Yelp Business Center. https://biz.yelp.com. Update your Business Information as needed and be sure to respond to reviews!
