"Yellow Pages" How much would you spend on adverts?

Recommended Posts

Im interested to hear what other people think about the yellow pages!

 

I spend approx 3-4k for adverts, ad words and yell.com with yellow pages, every year, I dont particularly think that the service is very good or ever has been, but do and have made more money than I spend with them.

 

Is a bigger advert better? would you increase your coverage to other areas/ Books?

 

what do people think about using local numbers to hide your actual location, or would you just stick with your own Contact numbers, evan though potential customers seem to want local tradesmen?

 

how do you advertise?

 

My renewal date is soon for the Yellow pages, trying to decide is often too much of a head ache.

 

Would appreciate to hear what others think and do!

A good website and local parish magazines are best these days I think. Used to spend a lot on yellow pages book but have changed with the times.

Not really, they take your money and feed you with s hit on how well your ad is doing but in reality its crap.

Yep Yellow Page's are Billions in debt . Hibu is the new owner of Yellow pages . I will not be in the 2014 edition fact . I paid my 2013 bill and they are now saying that they forgot to add the artwork onto that bill ha ha ha . Bloody scammers I am not helping pay there massive debt off . Yellow pages have always tried to amend / change my final bill after I had signed for the advert . Never again people . My local Parish mag has blown the YP out the water . Also I now have much less travelling to do ; )
