Do you use Yelp? We do, and for many reasons: it’s user-driven, I can find everything from great new places to eat to reviews for local services, and it’s helpful whether I’m at home or traveling.
Because of the way Yelp works, it’s also an excellent determining factor of popular trends. As a business owner in the ever-changing world of technology, it’s important for me to keep a pulse on what is popular with technology users so that I can better serve my clients, and Yelp says that you are currently looking for Smart Home Automation.
Many people strictly associate Yelp with restaurant reviews, which is still a very popular feature, but the site currently features a total of four main search categories: Home Cleaners, Restaurants, Home Services, and Delivery. When a Yelp user searches for a certain industry under Home Services, such as moving companies, they can also request quotes from those companies through Yelp’s Request a Quote feature in that category. According to digitaltrends.com, there has been a massive increase in Home Services searches on Yelp over the last year, and an astonishing 400% increase in searches for companies that implement smart home technology. Clearly this Smart Home trend is sticking around.
If you’re one of the more than two million people who have searched for smart home resources on Yelp this year, we should talk. I would love to help you choose the best products for your home, and I can install, integrate and service your equipment to ensure that you get the most out of it
