1148 not convinced yet

Anyone used as a marketing tool?

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

Had a call from one of the salespeople, trying to convince me to turn my marketing to them.

They tried to convince me the yell listing on page 1 is more effective than organic SEO growth

Anyone got any experiences of this. The price they quoted me was around £200+vat including the connect service.

Thanks all.

I assumed it had long since died -

I remember the days when you tended to have non geographic numbers listed in various editions.

Not sure how much business we ever got though.

the yell listing is always position '1' under the Adwords though on any organic search on Google so its surprising its not more effective...not sure why that would be

I wouldn't pay to be on it as they are a spent force now, as i see the paper version as now been put to bed for ever now also.

When was the last time anybody used yell to find anything? The only way any body would know it was even still around is because they keep trying to convince businesses to sign up.

I recently have (ie less than two weeks ago) and will continue so to do, so long as it finds me what I want better than the alternatives (which of course I also use).

Add your company under the free business listing. As Glennzy says it’ll help with SEO. I don’t think it’s worth paying for a listing. Nobody uses it anymore.

I use the free listing but nothing more as, along with several here, it seems, don't believe that people search through specifically.

It's hard to get data on any additional revenue it's delivered to me. But it certainly has helped me to get found. By call centres in India, dodgy chaps offering me stocks and shares in companies I've never heard of, people trying to persuade me to get a new web design, and companies doing wonderful charity calendars for the Fire Brigade.

I don't recall any actual customers calling up and saying they got my number from
