No way for me. They keep calling and I keep hanging up.

I checked into it and found it didn't need it. I could do that part myself.
Just got off the phone with them. I took the time to listen to their presentation. Basically, they want me to pay to redo a lot of the marketing I already have in place. They are weak in the one area that I am still shopping for a provider (social media management). When the salesperson realized I was not going to purchase, he resorted to insulting me by telling me that I have no Internet presence at all. Needless to say, this did not convince me to buy and I hung up on him.
I did use Yodle and found it of little value. As stated other Rainers, you can do everything yourself, for little time invested. For example, they promise to post on your Facebook twice a week with eye catching, attention getting posts that help your business page. The majority of the posts come from the Facebook page called "The Lighter Side of Real Estate." Cute posts, but you can like the page yourself and simply share. Your responsibility is to get testimonials and they publish them. Publish them yourselfs and done. I sale little value and the results stated by the sales person are grossly over stated.
Yodle is not a lead generation firm but rather a firm that supposedly increases your online presence through web based programs; yelp, google, etc. The minimum committment is 6 months at $249.00 per month due and payable at signing. They waive the set up fee if you sign up today which I recall was four hundred and some odd dollars additional. If you drag your feet they go to the manager and get you a reduction to $199.00 per month for a six month committment.
As someone here stated that you can do a lot of this on your own for free. Yodle portrays themselves as a neccesity for small business owners to increase exposure to your specific market area.
Hard core salesperson. Pass.
I just got a call from Yodle and they're another Online Marketing Company. Thanks everyone for sharing your experience...even if you havent heard of them...because, neither have I.
Like many marketers, they want you to jump in and commit to 6 months or more. Trial by fire... I can't afford to operate this way. Any current thoughts from anyone?
Sorry to all for not sharing identity when I posted the question. I thought Rain would pick it up from my profile and post it with the question.

Never heard of it and don't care to.
I can't give that info out to an anonymous poster.
I am testing yodle out and am holding judgement for six months. I use as a SEO driver and will keep track where I land on pages . I have linked AR to the site
I haven't heard of Yodle. I will have to look it up.
It is time to flesh out your AR profile.
It is helpful to know who is asking the question so our responses would be appropriate for an agent, a REALTOR, lender, land scaper or dog walker.
No. I looked into it years ago, and it didn't look like a good use of money and I think I was able to achieve the result on my own for free.
I have no clue what Yodle is, will look forward to learning.
Any reason you don't share your identity?
