If you find me on Yelp (here) you might notice that I have lots of great reviews, but none of them (at this time) are “Recommended”.
Yelp has a process for weeding out spam reviews. I get that. I have no problem with it. Great idea.
But these aren’t spam.
In September 2014, I thought maybe it was time I put my business on Yelp. I know a lot of people us it and I thought it would be good to be found on there. So I emailed my past clients and asked if any of them might be kind enough to review me on there. It was low pressure..
I was blown away to find out that 8 different clients quickly posted reviews for me. All of them 5-stars.
I’m flattered by this and honored.
Unfortunately, Yelp thinks they are not real enough to ‘recommend’. Perhaps it’s too-good-to-be-true? Whatever the case, I wanted to state publicly that these are all real people and I appreciate them taking their precious time to review me. I get to serve some amazing people.
