Have you utilized a business lately that you wish you could warn others about so they won’t get ripped off? Or have you experienced the BEST service ever and want to let others know so they can be blessed as well? Well, YELP is the place for you to voice your opinions.
I have been an active Yelper since 2008. More so for checking out reviews for services I am researching. So far, I have not been let down. The last service I did research for was for a nail salon. I wanted to purchase a gift certificate for my dear friend and wanted to make sure I hooked her up with a great salon experience. From what she said the Yelp Reviews did not steer me wrong and she walked away with wonderfully painted and polished toes as did her young daughter. Prior to that I researched moving companies as I had a positive life change BACK to my beloved Carlsbad. I found one via CraigsList and was ready to hire them for their very low rates. However I thought I should check their ratings on Yelp and low and behold they were awful! Yikes, I knew I couldn’t hire them. I immediately searched for a moving company on Yelp and found one that had all 5 star ratings. They were hired and they performed their moving services to a ‘T’. I mean movers doing a GREAT job is almost unheard of, but they did and absolutely no overcharges.
Of late I am actively posting reviews of businesses I have used…I hope my words of Yay or Nay will help a clever consumer make a good choice.
Be proactive about your shopping experiences and share your opinion and better yet, check out Yelp ratings before you go out to that new restaurant or go get your car fixed-you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
