Yelps Adds New 12-Second Video Feature To Their Website

Posted: Updated:

Anyone experienced with the website Yelp understands how valuable a business tool it can be for both consumer and business owner. Whenever you are looking for information about a business, you can expect users to provide information about the establishment. In the past all you could post was written reviews and pictures, but now Yelp has gone a step further and now allows 3-12 second video reviews! More information can be found at

The best thing about the video reviews are now users can experience first-hand the type of atmosphere at the business. This comes in handy for patrons looking to go to a restaurant and wonder what might the dress code be there. You can also get a much better feel on for who goes to these places, and what kind of atmosphere you can expect.

Video reviews can really help a business because the consumer tends to spend a lot more time learning about the business when there are pictures rather than just text. Now with video users can expect a much better experience when trying to learn about the business.

A business can really benefit if they run a good establishment because users are basically doing free advertising for them. Knowing that video can be taken of their business, owners of these companies should want to strive to have the best possible customer service. If you have poor customer service a customer can see a video of this interaction and may not want to attend your place of business. So in a sense it keeps businesses in check, and should always make them strive to do their best for consumers.

What’s great about the new Yelp video tool is that it can be used from your iPhone to take video and immediately upload it to Yelp. Soon this feature will be rolled out with Android, but as of now it has not yet been made available.

Users can now find out what the experience will be like when visiting that business. This will save the consumer a lot of time in trying to figure out if this is a place they would like to visit. It might however harm some businesses due to the fact of people posting negative reviews. But, there is much more good about video reviews that it outweighs anything negative. Check out the new video reviews on Yelp to help you decide which are the best places to visit!
