SILICON VALLEY, CA. May 2, 2018 -- Milestone, a provider of digital marketing solutions for location-based businesses, today announced participation as a Yelp Ads Certified Partner (YACP) to enable Milestone to help location-based businesses manage their presence on Yelp. This new offering helps consolidate the work of managing a businesses’ online presence by allowing location-based businesses to manage their Yelp listings, restrict competitive advertising on the Yelp page with branded profiles and leverage the advertising-based solutions managed by Milestone. The program also includes access to Milestone’s analytics and reporting solutions, to help businesses understand the effectiveness of their Yelp presence.

With this new program, location-based businesses will also be able to claim their business locations on Yelp, update profile information, create enhanced Yelp profiles – including call to action buttons – add pictures, respond to reviews and more directly through Milestone.

"We're thrilled to see Milestone launch as a Yelp Ads Certified Partner," said Drew Canniff, RVP, Agency Sales at Yelp. "Milestone customers benefit from exposure to Yelp’s large audience of high-purchase intent consumers, and Yelp benefits from Milestone’s client relationships with location-based businesses across Hospitality, Retail and Banking verticals.  This partnership will deliver real value to Milestone customers by providing a richer experience for businesses to manage their online presence through one, centralized platform."

Milestone and Yelp have worked to allow Milestone’s award-winning Milestone Local platform to claim locations via API and manage business information through a single integrated platform. This includes insightful reporting to showcase how consumers are interacting with their locations on Yelp.
