    is anyone using either google or yahoo's local advertising/listings?

    and what kind of results have you had?...I see there are a few others out there and it seems to me these days its much better to advertise here than in the Yellow pages

    they also offer different plans...any input appreciated..

    what do you guys think?...thanks

    i set up a free listing with yahoo not to long ago but nothing has come of it yet. i'm sure the pay listings would get more attention. I guess i'll have to wait until spring to see for sure.
    After going to a marketing seminar a few months ago, i don't think i'll ever pay for an ad in the yellow pages.

    Internet marketing is the future of sales! Although most of us are used to the internet, the majority of America is becoming dependent on it for their shopping because their professional careers take up so much of their time and energy.

    I agree, now if we can figure out how we fit into this. Do we advertise on referral sites that charge, our own web sites, yahoo, google, craigslist, ther are so many directions you can get lost quick.

    I signed up with Google yesterday.

    In South Dakota Craigslist has not really caught on.

    What is the process for Yahoo?
