Yodle Features In Depth

Yodle Dashboard

Digital marketers use a number of tools on a daily basis: email automation solutions, social media tools, content management systems, designing tools – the list can go on. Often, they deal with disparate solutions that require varying learning curves. For small business owners managing the many facets of their businesses, multiple marketing tools usage alone can be overwhelming.

Accessible anywhere, anytime, and on any device, the Yodle dashboard combines multiple online marketing tools where you can send email campaigns, “thank you” letters, and customer review requests; upload photos to post on your Facebook page; update your website information; and create personalized promotional offers.

Website and Local SEO

When you sign up with Yodle, one of the first things you get is a responsive website that auto-adjusts to fit any screen, whether that’s a smartphone, tablet, or desktop. Yodle Marketing Essentials then submits your site to online map services and 50+ business directories that include Google Maps and Yelp so customers can find what you offer.

When people look for products or services via the search engines, it’s a known fact that most of them only click through sites listed on the first few pages of the search results. Through Yodle’s localized approach to SEO, which is an evolving discipline and can be daunting for beginners, your site can make it to the top pages of the major search engines for at least 20 keywords.

Email Marketing and Social Media

Despite the different communication channels available to modern consumers today, email is still considered one of the best ways to build and nurture customer relationships. Yodle helps small businesses manage email campaigns and stay connected with existing customers. From the dashboard, you can create, customize, and send “thank you” emails, newsletters, reminders, and appointment confirmations.

To boost your brand’s social media presence, Yodle sets up a Facebook page for your business, which is then automatically updated with special offers, positive reviews, and photos uploaded via the app’s dashboard.

Customer Reviews

There’s nothing like the power of word-of-mouth marketing. Favorable reviews from satisfied customers are a way to alleviate trust issues with potential leads and new clients, given the fact that consumers nowadays rely on reviews when making purchasing decisions.

But collecting reviews isn’t necessarily easy. Yodle allows you to solicit reviews from your customers via a customized review request you can send from the dashboard. Positive reviews are then automatically posted to your adversite (the website Yodle creates, hosts, and maintains for you) and your Facebook business page.

Special Offers

Because sales and promotions draw new customers and drive repeat business, Yodle allows you to create special offers from the dashboard. Choose a template, customize it, and hit the Publish button. The offer will then be uploaded to your website and Facebook page, sent to your customers in an email blast, and pushed to 50+ business listings for maximum visibility.

Horrible Result and Disappointed from their Promise

2014-09-05

I was first introduced to this company and their services through a phone call from one of their representative.

Pros

They have something call Adversite which is their form of creating websites for the business. It's Mobile Friendly.

Cons

Although they promise 90 leads at minimum, you would be lucky to receive 5 decent phone calls with no promise that they will be a client

Off to a very good start!

2015-07-15

I do not pay anyway near 10% per month and would just like people to know that I signed up with Yodle on a Tuesday, got my first lead on Thursday and closed that sale for $275 on the following Monday!

Pros

The customer service team is very good, and their response time is quick!

Cons

None yet. I will let them know if any arise...

Don't Yodle if not a Pro

2016-02-22

Yodle is only good for professionals like doctors, dentists etc..for contractors like me it is a terrible way to market your bizI recommend YP.com as better for contractors also it is much cheaper than Yodle.

Pros

good for docs and other professionals since they were first to use Yodle..

Cons

bad for cons since we aren't docs, attorneys etc.
