NEW YORK, NY – I stumbled upon an article in the Turlock Journal written by Dennis Wyatt which lays out a bunch of accurate analogies about the Yellow Pages, or as he calls it, today’s Yellow Page, a severally shrunken down version of what once was, an essential item in every American home, say, thirty years ago. Some of the points that hit home, not only seemed accurate, but were also comical were: In the early 1970s when delivery crews tossed the Yellow Pages onto your doorstep it sounded like they had thrown a brick. In many households the Yellow Pages was referenced with greater frequency then the Bible. There was a time when you actually looked forward to receiving the phone book directory. The phone book saved you from being charged for calling directory assistance (as well as a little extra to dial the number for you so you did not need to write it down). The White Pages is also shrinking as fewer and fewer households have landlines. Today most people pick up the Yellow Pages on our doorsteps and walk directly to the recycling cart and drop the phone book into it. Other interesting points were that back in these days when the phone book was a hot commodity we used to remember phone numbers so well that we still remember them 50 years later. I’d bet for most adults, they still remember their childhood home phone number. However, these days that information
NEW YORK, NY – Just a few weeks ago we reported the launch of a new Yellow Pages service specific to the solar power industry and delivering business listings for the most part, in California. However, today we caught wind of another newly launched Yellow Pages service, this time, specific to the Muslim Business Community. The site, announced via a press release, is called Muslim Yellow Pages, and is a new service that connects Muslim consumers with Muslim run businesses throughout the nation. The site also features classifieds, job postings, coupons, an e-mail newsletter and Muslim related event listings; however, being that the site appears to be quite new, most of the categories look empty. Subscriptions for business listings on the service seem somewhat costly (when compared to YPGG) with monthly subscription pricing ranging from $75 to $125 per month for its paid options with one free listing opportunity in a single category. According to the press release, the service aims to provide an easy connection between Muslim customers and Muslim businesses throughout the region. Muslim Yellow Pages aims to provide an easy connection between Muslim customers and Muslim businesses throughout the region. In visiting the new website, customers will gain immediate access to hundreds of businesses, ranging from accounting firms to wholesalers. The site was created by a digital marketing agency and website design firm in Dallas, Texas called Click4Corp. The company will obviously benefit from having its own Yellow Pages business to
NEW YORK, NY – Imagine if you had the foresight, in 1996, to register the Internet domain name YellowPages.com. That’s what a stock broker named Dane Madsen did when he found out that web addresses were able to registered by just about anyone with an idea and some cash on hand. YellowPages.com was registered for roughly $130 and eventually sold for $100 million to the large telecom companies who run the old print phone books such as AT&T. The domain name was initially a website having nothing to do with the phone companies who had printed phone books, a process used for over 100 years before the Internet. Today, according to our home page survey results, about 64 percent of Yellow Page users prefer online directories, over print books with about 35 percent saying they use the paper version. Over three hundred users have been surveyed in this poll, with each vote being cast by a unique IP address. This number is also likely to grow with overall use of the Internet around the world. Other surveys have concluded that support for an “opt-in” method to receiving print books; verses being automatically subscribed are at 81% of respondents. But what would phone companies do if their circulation numbers plummeted? These numbers suggest that online versions will continue to grow and be used more than conventional type Yellow Pages, and that Madsen’s purchase of the YellowPages.com web address just might have been one of the greatest
