Yodle was founded in March 2005 by Nathaniel Stevens who, at the time, was managing online marketing for his father’s car dealership in New Haven, CT, while still a student at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. Nathaniel realized that there was a better way for small businesses to connect with consumers than the antiquated techniques business owners were then using.

After winning a business plan competition and gaining some initial funding, Nathaniel teamed up with childhood friends Ben Rubenstein and John Berkowitz, as well as one of his professors at Wharton, Dr. Kartik Hosanagar, and Milind Mehere, to build the business. From humble beginnings – working late into the night out of shared office spaces and cramped apartments – Yodle has gone on to achieve astronomical growth.

Today, Yodle is offering comprehensive, integrated and easy-to-use local online marketing solutions to 50,000+ small businesses across the U.S. Yodle employs 1,300+ talented individuals in five offices – New York, NY; Atlanta, GA; Austin, TX; Charlotte, NC; and Scottsdale, AZ. This success has happened under the leadership of Court Cunningham who was hired as CEO and the company’s 11th employee in early 2007.

Yodle CEO Court Cunningham talks to Bloomberg TV about the local online marketing space and Yodle’s growth.


Ben Rubenstein and a couple of college friends co-founded Yodle in 2005 while they were studying at the University of Pennsylvania. Yodle now has an annual revenue of more than $100 million, 30,000 customers, 900 employees and multiple offices across the country.​

Meet the young entrepreneurs who’re fixing the economy and creating jobs. Top Empact-honored job-creator Yodle handles local Internet marketing from its New York City headquarters, and its employee numbers are soaring.


Yodle provides online marketing and builds websites for lawyers, dentists and other local merchants.

A lot of people go after the small business market, but can’t do it. It’s a hard problem to solve, but Yodle is super metrics-driven. They know the levers of this business.

Yodle has hidden the complexity and minimized the SMB education the sales reps need to do in order to close. Dare I say it . . . but Yodle may have “cracked the code” with its new more integrated product and sales approach.

Yodle CEO Court Cunningham was in town to meet with employees, Scottsdale mayor Jim Lane and the Phoenix Business Journal to discuss the company’s rapid growth since its inception eight years ago. “It was a great conversation with a company that’s on the move and growing,” said Lane. “It’s noted as one of the fastest growing entrepreneurial technology companies in the country.”

    I have been working at Yodle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Tons of perks, and work incentives, and holy COW so much money to be made.

    Cons

    It's a job cold-calling, which is not notoriously fun to do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome. If you wanted to bump base salary, that'd be pretty cool, but honestly, the commission percentages already rock.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yodle.

    Interview

    Applied online and was called back for a 30 minute phone call interview. Next stop was meeting with the company where I shadowed a worker and learned his day to day activities. That was followed up with talking to the hiring/firing manager where I answered questions regarding my resume then reading a script since it is a cold calling job.
