I am proud to announce that yesterday I was invited to be part of the Yelp Elite Squad. I am honored and thrilled! Basically, as you might know Yelping is a way to review businesses and otherwise. You have the ability to rate them 1-5 stars and write comments about your visit while you were there.
Because they can explain it from me, this is what Yelp has to say about their Elite Squad:
What is the “Yelp Elite Squad”?
The Yelp Elite Squad is our way of recognizing and rewarding yelpers who are active evangelists and role models, both on and off the site. Elite-worthiness is based on a number of things, including well-written reviews, great tips on mobile, a fleshed-out personal profile, an active voting and complimenting record, and playing nice with others. Members of the Elite Squad are designated by a shiny Elite badge on their account profile. If you think you or someone you know might be ready to be Yelp Elite, visithttp://www.yelp.com/elite.
So what comes with being Yelp Elite? Sure you get that sparkly badge that you get to rock with pride on your Yelp profile page, but in addition to that you get opportunities to attend exclusive events, meet Yelpers from your community in-person, and discover a variety of local businesses you probably didn’t try previously From what I am told the these exclusive events are types of amazing soirees, bashes, dinner parties, even weddings that are taking place throughout our communities near and far.
I’ve been yelping since January of 2012 and it’s awesome to finally be part of this elite squad of people who love giving their opinions. I can’t wait for my first Yelp event to meet everyone and see what it’s all about. For right now all I can do is prance around and be thankful.
