How Yelp partners directly with marketing and advertising agencies

As part of Yelp’s ongoing mission to support local businesses, we have developed a partnership program designed for the digital, marketing, and advertising agencies who service them. Through the Yelp Advertising Partner Program, companies who want to manage and optimize Yelp Ads campaigns on behalf of their small and medium-sized business (SMB) clients receive exclusive, agency-specific support, resources, and incentives to do so directly from a dedicated Yelp team. We’re invested in the growth of our Yelp Advertising Partners by helping them leverage the power of our platform to drive new leads and customers for their clients.

As of today, over 350 agencies—ranging from one-person shops to large, growing teams—are active members of our Partner Program. These agency partners include Yelp advertising solutions in the arsenal of powerful search engine marketing (SEM) and pay-per-click (PPC) tools they use to address the business needs of their clients, and see great success. Hear directly from them:

“Our strategic partnership with Yelp adds an important new layer to our product suite, enabling stronger consumer engagement and unique insights that help our local business customers connect with prospects and drive sales.”

– Jamie Adams, chief growth officer of Scorpion

“The Yelp partnership has been perfect for us. We’re able to offer an edge to our clients, increasing their confidence in Yelp Ads and getting them to spend more, while at the same time increasing our bottom line and providing great results for our clients.”

– Ailon Katalan & Tomer Maman, co-owners of Shefa Marketing
