We’re officially a Yelp ads certified partner for local SEO and marketing

by DRUM, 25 Sep 2017

DRUM, a full-service direct and digital marketing agency, is proud to announce its participation in the invitation-only Yelp Ads Certified Partner program. Part of DRUM’s local SEO offering, the partnership means DRUM can now offer special Yelp ad pricing, knowledge, insights and strategies to its clients.


This partnership benefits DRUM clients on two levels: franchises advertising individually can collaborate with their corporate offices and DRUM to tap into brand SEO authority and better pricing. Corporate brands can also work with DRUM to integrate their Yelp efforts into an effective local SEO and brand marketing direction.

Yelp advertising services are available through DRUM's new Local SEO Franchise/Small Business Incubator – a set of enterprise tools and support not normally accessible by individual franchisees or small businesses. Using this, franchise owners or small businesses can:

  • Opt-in to Yelp ads
  • Self-manage their presence
  • Tap into brand SEO authority
  • Get unbiased, expert advice about Yelp advertising

“DRUM is opening up our enterprise local SEO, reputation management, business listing and review monitoring tools to franchises and businesses regardless their size” said Greg Lee, director of SEO at DRUM. “It’s our toolset of choice for brands, but it’s also flexible at the individual level. Some franchise owners are superstars at customer service and getting reviews; our local SEO incubator program gives them access to manage their own listings, reviews and social media, and our Yelp partnership enables them to make the most of those areas where they shine.”
