Default Is Yelp good for the trades?

I get calls from Yelp constantly. Now they're telling me that if I was a preferred plumber, I would have had a shot at 2659 leads for plumbers in Reno last month. Hmm. Sounds like BS to me. But I am curious...
  1. Does anyone use Yelp for their plumbing business?
  2. Are you getting enough verifiable leads for business to justify their pricing?
  3. If you're in a contract with Yelp, do you wish you weren't?
  4. How much are you spending with Yelp? (they want 3k a month from me).

They are a bunch of cock suc/ers if you ask me...

You should do the free site that they give you but that is about all you
want to do with them...
I have the FREE site on Yelp and that is all I am gonna do with them
because they shake you down for money ////

I attempted a 300 a month program with them but the site stayed stagnant and they basically tried to shake me down for more money claiming my 2 1/2 star rating would go up . i have 23 good reviews hidden on the back page and 2 bd reviews on the front page just because they are dicks...

........ of course they are totally lieing to you......send them 3000 and find out.

Other then even trying yelp, you sound just like my Master. You should hear him when he has a hair up his azz when google or "Jenny's" list calls, can be quite comical.

I know what you mean.....if they would have just treated me right, then I might have eventually signed up for more than 6 months but they basically pissed down my back........

once I have been screwed and lied to,
you are on my hit list until the day I die......

I never forgive and I never forget.......

Pay to play here. You gotta know where your advertising dollars are best spent. I don't see yelp as the the best place for my dollars.

Don't do it. Spend your money on a decent website and some professional SEO (not easy to find).
