    Hey Neil,

    As usual, great tutorial video!

    Just one thing about your last step by getting Yelp reviews. I’ve had my clients leaving reviews on there and 7 of them were removed because Yelp felt those were not useful.

    I am running a pain clinic in Downtown Toronto, Canada and I have been using Google to search all of the local listings and been adding my clinic info on there.

    What other things might you suggest I do?

    Cheers,
    Simon
