In the early days of January, members of the Yelp Elite Squad wait with baited breath. The anticipation. The excitement. The wonder. Will they be selected to rock the Elite badge in the new year?
BOOM! Badge Day! But what does it all mean?
Although the badge can be earned all year long, Yelpers who earn their Elite badge on Badge Day embody the spirit of Yelp throughout the prior year. These review warriors are hand selected by Yelp HQ for their positivity, quality contributions, and being a general role model of awesomeness for Yelp. They are driven and contribute to the community by sharing experiences of local businesses on a regular basis…the Elite badge is the cherry on top of that sundae!
This is a *big deal*… So we throw a party to celebrate!
All across the Yelp-globe, Badge Day celebrations are thrown to celebrate these local biz supporting heroes and their quality contributions. Whether sharing a secret new spot or recommending a great local plumber, their experiences help people from across the globe discover the best of all things local—and that makes a huge difference to so many people, every day.
Take a peek at remarkable events hosted all across the Yelpisphere!
