Well, I opted NOT to go with Yellow Page advertising. The cost per lead was astronomical.

We have clients that use YP ad's and they work great, but in our industry where there is so many of us, there isn't really a big enough niche from one company to the next so they can ask an outrageous amount of money because of the competition.

Good luck!

It also depends on the demographics and who you're going after. Personally, I can't see YP bringing forth a great ROI within the hosting industry.

For "need it now" services like a plumber when your bath is leaking it *might* work but for business services, no chance.
I agree with you.

I can't see this being useful for most of you. For big companies like datacenters etc. it would make sense. For others it's just a waste of money.
