What experiences have you all had working with Yelp & AngiesList for Lead Gen? I think we tried them both 5 years ago and they were promising us the sun and the moon with results, but when results came in it was something like $150 or more per lead when you did the math. It's been awhile, maybe they've improved (the sales reps like to say they have). Should we give them another shot?

I’ve never paid either of those services. I get some free leads from Yelp myself.

Last week I was talking to an electrical contractor in a different state who I know from an online group, I trust this man and don’t think he would lie about business. This is what he said, a copy and paste from a text message:

So last year I advertised with Yelp and Angie’s List. My advertising costs were about about $20k. My income from advertising sources was $385,000. Referrals was about $120k. Organic or unknown was about $100k.

Depending on the business, Yelp is a hit or miss. The big thing to ask your Yelp rep is to see if they can provide some sort of information based upon who you are targeting and of course the keywords you are targeting. My yelp rep that I work with is truly amazing. She provides me just enough information for my clients to see if the spends are worth it.

I attached a small example of what she usually sends me before I begin a campaign with a certain client.
