Question Internet Yellowpages?

Hi Guys, I was wondering if any of you have tried advertising in internet yellow pages? Is it worth it? Any response would be appreciated.
Thanks. PS, it is for my website builder.

In general, yellow pages work better for people looking for a business with a physical presence.

There are different yellow pages that (as we speak) building relationships with search engines and other portals to become more universally used. You can buy a national sponsored ad w/ a company like SuperPages and have a sponsored listing for 'web design' or something similar, but that would also pretty expensive.

That wasn't the best example, but hope that helps. I'm guessing your site wouldn't get the best targeted traffic from the yellow pages.

I can't speak for the US, or other countries, but in the UK the yellow pages online stinks. I have worked with loads of clients who were spending lots of money, but getting nothing back

Hi there,
Yell.co.uk is not so bad for b to b businesses.. And pagesjaunes.fr is a site you just can't ignore.. But for b to c it's another matter :-)
Cheers,
Johann

Default Thanks

Thanks Guys for the input. I am still at a very low advertising budget, so I think I'll stick to the lo tech.

Well an ad in the yellow pages (hard copy) is low tech, but not low budget
Cheers,
