yellow pages?

I use my cell phone # for my business. Is it worth it to get a land line to get in the yellow pages? Then I can forward the calls. Also ,should I take out a newspaper ad? I'v got flyers and door hangers,business cards and signs.Not getting many calls tho.It is still early here in the poconos tho. All suggestions welcome!

You can get a "remote call forwarding number" which will be a non-existitant line that forwards to your cell phone. That is what I do... my business line is 22-GREEN (224-7336) but it forwards to my cell phone just like you were calling my cell. I cannot tell if somebody is calling my cell phone or the business line because they both ring through to my cell. This is the phone number I put on all my advertising materials. It only costs like 30 per month, then if you ever get a land line for the business, you can make that phone number a land line.

I also like this option because if I sell the business later, I can still keep my regular cell phone number and then sell them the business number.
