Turn your Yelp Reviews into Social Proof
Yelp is an online platform that provides crowd-sourced reviews and recommendations for businesses, particularly in the restaurant and hospitality industry. It allows users to share their experiences, rate businesses, and provide feedback. Users can create accounts, write reviews, upload photos, and engage in discussions about their experiences with businesses. They can also follow other users, comment on reviews, and send direct messages.
You can easily connect Yelp to Nudgify using our Yelp integration to showcase your reviews on your website in a Review Nudge, in real-time.
How to turn your Yelp reviews into Social Proof Nudges
Step 1. Type Your Business Domain Into Nudgify
To manage your integrations, click the “Integrations” button on the left-hand sidebar.
This is where you manage your integrations with other apps and softwares. To enable the integration with Yelp, select “Yelp”.
Type in your Yelp page URL which is the URL of your business’s Yelp page.
NB. Your Yelp reviews may take up to 48 hours to appear in the datafeed so if you don’t see any review right away , not to worry, you can always check back later for the updates. Another thing to note is that your yelp page url must be in the format “https://www.yelp.com/biz/businessname”. We cannot pull reviews using any other format.
Click “Connect”. Your Yelp page URL has been saved and is now connected to Nudgify.
Step 2. Create Yelp review Nudges
You can create two types of Review Nudges with the Yelp integration.
- Nudges that show single reviews
- Nudges that show the average rating based on multiple reviews
Show Single Reviews
When creating a new Nudge, choose the Single Review Nudge in the Social Proof Nudges category of the Nudge Library.
A window will now pop up in which you can configure your new Nudge. Select “Yelp”.
You can choose to only show reviews with a certain rating, for example only 4 and 5 star reviews.
Select the maximum age of reviews you wish to show. You can for example only show reviews that have been left within the last 3 months.
Click “Continue” and you have now installed your new Nudge! Your reviews will now show in your Nudges and give you some powerful Social Proof!
Show Your Average Rating
When creating a new Nudge, choose the Ratings Nudge in the Social Proof Nudges category of the Nudge Library.
A window will now pop up and ask you to configure this Nudge. Select “Yelp” and choose the maximum age and the amount of reviews you wish to count for the calculation of your average rating.
Click “Continue” and you’re done. The Nudge will now automatically capture and show your rating, giving you some great Social Proof!
