I ran a yellow page ad a few years ago and was very disappointed with the results. ROI very poor! I agree that the phone book salesman will tell you just about anything to sell the ad. I have had much better luck with the professional directory in the local newspaper, and by word-of-mouth.

This last year I had my first and last yellowpages ad. Yeah sure I got calls. Like others 90% were telemarketers looking for me to have more ads, the rest where all price shoppers looking for the lowest rate.

I wasnt happy with the results at all.

We spent $2,00.00 on a yellow page ad and it was useless. one call on the add. most of new work is from old work or reg. customers. We willn"t use the yellow pages again not worth the money

I would not waste good money $25.00 to $50.00, It would be like throwing that money in the wind every month
