Are you tired of manually collecting service information from Yelp search pages and struggling to keep everything organized? This automation is here to ease your burden and simplify the process!
Imagine having to comb through multiple Yelp pages, copying and pasting service details one by one. It's a time-consuming and tedious task, especially if you're dealing with a large number of results. But with our automation, those pain points become a thing of the past.
Market researchers can effortlessly gather data for analysis, while business owners can quickly explore competitors' services. Even if you're simply creating a comprehensive list for reference, our automation has you covered.
No more worrying about manual data entry or misplacing vital information. With just a click, the extracted service details will be neatly organized in your Airtable, making it easy to access and utilize.
Let’s set it up!
The first step is to create an Airtable with all the information you want to save.
Bardeen will extract information from the currently opened Yelp search results page and save information like name, image, address, reviews, stars, type, links, and more. It will then save this information to your Airtable database, once your setup is complete.
You will be redirected to install the browser extension when you run it for the first time. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Airtable.
Click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to get this automation saved to your Playbooks.
Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and click on the playbook card. The setup flow will start.
You will be asked to specify an Airtable and the maximum number of items from Yelp that you would like to save. After you choose the database and number, you will get a prompt to map the information to the fields in Airtable.
The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields in Airtable that you want to associate with the information on the left. If you don’t want a piece of information, leave that field empty, and it will be skipped. That’s it!
Click on “Save Input” and checkmark Airtable. This will save you time from setup in the future. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook.
To save items from the currently opened yelp search page to Airtable, navigate to the search results page.
Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and run this playbook. It will save all the information from the search page to the database you specified in Step #1.
This automation is fantastic for market researchers who can use the automation to gather a comprehensive list of services offered by various businesses in a specific location. This data can be used to analyze service trends, identify gaps in the market, and make informed decisions for their research reports.
Business owners and entrepreneurs can benefit from the automation by quickly extracting service information from their competitors' Yelp pages. This allows them to gain insights into their competitors' offerings, pricing, and unique selling points, helping them refine their own business strategies and stay competitive in the market.
Companies that offer a wide range of services can also utilize the automation to create a detailed service catalog. By extracting and saving service details from Yelp to their Airtable, they can maintain an up-to-date and well-organized list of offerings that can be easily shared with clients and prospects. This streamlines the process of presenting services to potential customers and ensures accuracy and consistency in service descriptions.
You can also edit the playbook and add your next action to further customize the automation.
