Yelp Adding Video Reviews

Starting next month, the popular review website Yelp will allow video reviews via desktop and mobile apps. Yelp reviews began as long-form text entries on desktop machines, but the popular site followed user trends and added mobile reviews and photo uploads. Adding video review capabilities is a logical next step and further demonstrates the digital trend to video.

Video is a quick and easy way for website visitors to internalize information in an entertaining and immersive way. Seeing a video of a restaurant allows you to pick up on the noise level, the atmosphere, the dress code, and the general “vibe” far faster than a text-based review.

In digital marketing, video is important to engage fans, followers, and clients who want to quickly learn about your biz or learn about a service you provide. At Black Tie Digital Marketing, we offer video production and video animation
