Years ago having a phone book directory was a mandatory part of any business plan. Now the Yellow Pages are hardly being printed any longer, because you can get any information needed digitally. The Yellow Pages digital options are yp.com, yellowpages.com,hibu,com, supermedia.com and several other similar companies. If you’re purchasing a YP.com listing for your scrap yard, they’ve most likely ‘wowed’ you with big numbers.
All in all it can look extremely impressive and why wouldn’t you want to be included in one of the largest online networks available? But…
Why pay for everyone when all you want are scrappers and contractors ?
We investigated the costs last year and received a quote for a scrap yard location in New Jersey. The quote was for Scrap Yard X to be listed targeting a large NJ Metro Zone composed of approximately 2.7 Million people.(That’s the WOW factor). The scrap yard would be listed under Recycling Centers, Scrap Metals and Wholesale Recycling. Each category cost $328 per month. If you add a Red Bolded Heading– add another $40 per month. For our Customer X to appear in those same three categories on mobile devices that’s another $160 per month.
Sub Total = $528 per month
