- Nationwide trends show that calls generated by yellow page advertising have increased over the last 3 years.MA
- Over all, yellow page advertisers average $9 in sales for every $1 spent. ROI is higher in smaller, rural markets like ours. Some studies have shown $30 in sales for every $1 spent.

Is the Internet a Reliable Way to Promote Your Business
- Internet media companies have been busy creating the illusion that people are primarily using the Internet instead of using print yellow pages. People are using the Internet, but not as much as you might think. A Lubbock, TX study shows that 70% used the Yellow Pages to research their purchase and only 17% purchased as a result of searching the Internet.MA
- There are two basic ways for a small business to be found on the 1st page of a search results page. The "organic" approach and the paid approach. The paid approach is when a business buys keywords/adwords from Google to get in the search results for that keyword. The more paid the better chance of getting on the 1st page. Statistics show that most searches that actually result in purchases are from the organic method. For Example, in Seattle the organic was 38% and paid was 15% in 2015. The organic approach requires a high degree of SEO knowledge and continuous massaging of content in order to rank high with Google, which is unrealistic for most small business, especially if they have a lot of competition in the field.MA
- Still, Businesses should have a website with content containing verbiage that people might search on. They should also be active on social media like Facebook, Twitter, etc. We also highly suggest you check your listings on Yelp and other such websites, for accuracy, add photos and add whatever is missing. We would be happy to provide more help on this front, and remember, as an advertiser you are automatically published with your own page on our website: eastmountaindirectory.com. We can enhance the content, ad photos and videos if you are interested. Give us a call at 505 281-9476.
