Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT), the Answers Search Company, today announced an incentive program for its Listings product as part of its #Back2Biz campaign, which aims to put businesses at an advantage as COVID restrictions loosen and reopening ramps up.
With Yext Listings, businesses can show up on approximately 200 of the top apps, maps, and services that customers use to search for them — from Google and Amazon Alexa to Facebook and Yelp. Additionally, they can make and communicate swift changes to their business information as restrictions change, including hours of operations for physical locations, updated COVID protocols, special "back to business" offers, and more with the click of a button. As businesses reopen and re-prioritize foot traffic, delivering accurate, up-to-date information on their search listings will ultimately help customers who are looking to transact be more confident, knowledgeable, and comfortable walking through the door.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a heavy toll on businesses, especially those in the food services, retail, and hospitality industries," said Howard Lerman, Founder and CEO of Yext. "With reopening on the horizon, now is the time for businesses to seize the tools and strategies that will jumpstart their foot traffic and keep them ahead of the competition. With Yext's #Back2Biz program, we're helping businesses cut costs so they can come back better and stronger than before."
Through the program, businesses that qualify can take advantage of special pricing for Listings for a limited time if they sign up between April 1st and June 30th. Yext is also helping qualified businesses working with other search providers switch easily to Listings with a contract buyout incentive. Businesses can sign up for the offer at www.yext.com/resources/back2biz.
