10 Thing You Didn’t Know about Yelp!



Hi, my name is Andy. Like most of my generation, I encountered the power of Social Media throughout my college days. I remember starting my freshman year and entering into the world of Facebook (back when membership was limited to those with .edu emails). Shortly after, Twitter and Linkedin came along and the Web 2.0 phenomena was in full swing. Since then, Facebook has achieved 800Million+ users, Twitter 200Million+, and Linkedin 116 Million+ (as of 2011). The Social Media phenomena had arrived and pronounced itself here to stay.  In addition to Social Media platforms, Internet marketing and its related industries SEO and SEM have experienced tremendous growth as well.

Now a few years removed from graduation, I’m ready to set forth for a new career utilizing Internet Marketing, SEO, SEM, and Social Media. Thanks for coming to my site!
