Our first Elite Yelp event was a HUGE hit!
So what exactly is an Elite Yelp Event? It’s pretty much a party to showcase your business to a number of Elite Yelpers.
Yeah, so now you are going, “What the heck are Elite Yelpers”? Well, they are basically super Yelp reviewers. Here’s Yelp’s description: Elite-worthiness is based on a number of things, including well-written reviews, high quality tips, a detailed personal profile, an active voting and complimenting record, and a history of playing well with others. Members of the Elite Squad are designated by a colorful Elite badge on their account profile.
So we put our best foot forward and threw in all we had! We invited the Elite Yelpers of Phoenix to our event and expected 75 to 80 Elites to show. We ended up with over 100 guests!
We treated them to music from DJ HartBreaks; food from neighbors Phoenix Ale Central Kitchen, Mora Italian, and Okra Cookhouse; jewelry from Jewel Ya; handbags from Soul Carrier; and five fantastic free services. From the most popular eyebrow waxing to pampering hand massages, we gave the Elite Squad our finest.
And we had a blast with them! They get the chance to review the event and as of today, we have over 25 reviews of the event and they are all five star! Additionally, we booked over 12 Elites with future appointments. Clearly, this event was worth all of the effort.
Thank you to the Phoenix Elite squad, our vendors and neighbors who supported us, and Yelp who has been such an important part of our success throughout the years! Oh, and last but not least, Hailey the amazing community director of Yelp, for our fantastic city of Phoenix![/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][ssboost][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
