I love my plumber
Welcome, Phoebe Jacqueline!
The phone co. is after me right now, they want me to add to my ads.
Um, no thank you.
My phone was disturbingly quiet today but when these deep freezes come, they don't trip up calls for me till after it starts to rise back up, then it's party time!
One of our competitors had magnets attached to the phone book when they mailed them out. I see those damn magnets on every refrigerator I see. It's odd, they call us, but our competitors magnet is on the fridge.
Anyone can tear a man down, few can build one up.
They probably just use your competitors magnet for the emergency numbers or the calendar that's attached. Not even realizing what the service is advertising on it.
That company is probably donating at least $100,000 a year to YP for a full page print ad, YP.com, and that magnet, and they called you!
I hate the yellow pages! Especially the overpriced AT$T!
I get about 2 calls a week from my ad on yellow pages.com. If i get at least 2, then it pays for itself. When ever i look into new advertising, i look at the total yearly cost, then work my break even points to see if it is worth pursuing. In this case, yellowpages.com was worth pursuing.
See, luckily i got on the first page.
I'm thinking there's just too much competition in my area. People open the book here and their head spins with so much choice.
2 jobs per week just from the yp.com would pay for my internet and print ad combined.
In 2008 I had a 55% loss on At&t advertising. I'm probably going to go up a size and get the ad professionally designed, not let the at&t people do it, and try for one more year. That's a $6000.00 loss for me last year.
I go back and forth, between that and just getting out now.
I'm a glutton for punishment.
Hey Rockstar what do you pay a month for first page. If you dont mind.
You can lose with me, but you can't win without me!.... PPI
Exactly. It's a small square with emergency numbers to all kinds of different businesses.
I see them everywhere, but I'm still in their house. ????
Y'know, I bet they still work though, just don't know how well. The writing is very small and you have to squint to see it because they tried to sell the item for all it's worth.
