Advertising in the Yellow Pages is Expensive

Advertising in the Yellow Pages is expensive and not effective. Yellow Pages are a lead generation service. The return on investment is low. We have clients who used the Yellow Pages. They were paying too much for their ads and not seeing a return on investment. Their phone stopped ringing, their landing page was not seeing traffic from their Yellow Page placements. Therefore, our clients cancelled their service.

The Yellow Pages representatives are aggressive. Some advertising customers sign up with the Yellow pages and are trapped with a contract. These customers do not understand what is offered. Remember, just because the Yellow Pages report points out calls that calls are not sales.

For the money saved from cancelling the Yellow Pages, implement a digital marketing strategy instead. Forrester states that US digital marketing spends will near $120 billion by 2021. Forrester reports that consumers between 18 and 35 years old spend 600 billion per year. There is more money being spent on display ads instead of pay per click. Visitors start their search for your products or services using a search engine such as Google. Consumers evaluate a business on visibility, reputation, and reviews. Moreover, use retargeted ads to convert more visitors.
