On Friday, October 3, I will be attending a Success With Online Reviews workshop hosted by Yelp and the Maryland Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the College of Southern Maryland Prince Frederick Campus in Prince Frederick, Maryland. I would like to invite small business owners in the Fifth District to attend. Similar to events earlier this year that I have attended with Facebook and Google, Yelp will have experts on hand to help Fifth District local business owners learn about online strategy and tools.
Yelp was founded ten years ago to assist people in finding great local businesses. In addition to accessing reviews of local businesses, you can use Yelp to find events and to have a conversation with other reviewers about their experience. Since Yelp’s establishment, more than 61 million reviews have been written. That why it’s so important that Maryland businesses attend this free workshop where Yelp experts will help show business owners how to successfully navigate Yelp's website and improve their business's online presence.
If you own a small business, please register for the event here. I also encourage you to share this event with others in our community.
As always, thank you for allowing me to share this update, and please contact my office with any questions regarding the Yelp and Maryland SBDC workshop.
