For better or worse, almost every local business is on Yelp. While it's pretty simple to setup and manage a Yelp page, there comes a time when you just don't have enough time to take care of it; you'd would rather have someone else manage it for you. Unfortunately, many local business owners don't know the right way to invite someone to manage their Yelp page. Most actually end up just sharing their username and password, which needless to say is a very bad practice.
The right way to invite someone to manage your Yelp page is by adding them as another user on your account. Fortunately, Yelp has made it a very simple process. Unfortunately, they don't talk about it that openly. In this article, we will show you a simple step-by-step process to help you invite your marketing person to manage your Yelp page.
Before we begin, here's the original article from Yelp that talks about it - https://www.yelp-support.com/article/How-do-I-set-up-additional-logins-for-my-Yelp-Business-Account?l=en_US
Steps to Invite Someone to Manage Your Yelp Page:
1. Go to your Yelp Business Page, and click "Account Settings".
Notice the URL and the Yelp top menu bar. You need to be on your "Business Page" and not your personal page. A Yelp Business Page will say "for Business Owners".
2. On that same page, you will see a link that says "Share access to this business with another person". Click that.
3. This will take you to Yelp Support page. Provide your business name and location and click "Search" button right next to it. Then select your business from the search results.
4. Fill the invitation form, and click submit.
New user's first and last name is the name of the person you want to invite.
New user's email is their email address.
Use additional information section to provide some information as to why you are inviting this user.
Your email address is the email address you used to log into your Yelp Business account.
After this, Yelp Support reviews your request, and if approved, the person whom you invited, will start seeing your business page in their account.
