If you are doing your due diligence on our company and are looking for reviews, specifically on the website Yelp!, we regret to inform you that you will not find any profiles for MI&T. This is not because we have not submitted our business to yelp in an attempt to avoid yelpers. In fact, it is quite the opposite. It is a long story but we were actually advertising on a national level with Yelp for over 6 months. In that time we did not have 1 negative review which for yelp is really quite incredible as yelpers are notoriously known for being quick to let you know about bad experiences.
We had numerous calls with the national advertising team where they seemed very frustrated and pushy that we refused to raise our Cost Per Click bid. Then one day out of the blue, we received a call informing us that we were being removed from the program and the website.
Basically we were spending the minimum with the advertising program because there was not a category specific enough for our company. They labeled us as “home inspectors” and wanted us to pay $6+ a click to compete against other home inspectors when we were already at the top of searches in the directory for “mold Inspection” and “mold testing”. So the real reason we were kicked off was not due to our business model but more so that we were preventing them from making money off other inspectors in the area that didn’t have a chance against our business model and stellar service with outstanding reviews.
So before our listings came down, we were able to get some screenshots to prove our point. We guarantee that if you get our service, you’ll be happy you ignored that we are not on this directory. Yelp Sucks!
