    At the moment I just have one of those free adverts on yell.com

    some matey just rung me up saying do you want a full advert.. he said it would cost me £300 a year.. I said I would get back to him and get some feedback from people.

    He was saying how it will generate alot of clients.. which is what I need. but it could be lies..

    anyone with yell.com

    is it worth it?

    I'd say don't go for it. £300 is a lot of money. I've just got three months advertising free on a site, try and get that instead.

    Note though, you'll be in the Yellow Pages will about 4 billion other people who do the same thing as you.

    Whatever you do don't do it!

    I did once and it was the biggest waste of marketing money I've ever spent.

    I've been kicking myself for the past 8 months after allowing myself to be talked into this utter waste of money. £500 for a one year ad, and I'm lucky if it brings in more than 10 visitors to my website per month.

    I really should have known better given what I do, and what I used to do (I worked for a long time in sales, many of those years spent in telesales spewing the same crap as the yell guys do) - yet I still got suckered in. I'm hanging my head in shame right now...

    Ha, a Sales guy getting Sold. Hang thy Head. Advertising is about the Sell. And the Sell only.;)

    I know, shocking. Completely unrelated, but Berry, we met last week at the Sunderland Business Network event - I knew I had been talking to someone from your company about the in's and outs of the internet, but it was only when I went back through my business card collection when I spotted your name.

    Our industry is based on trust, which you just can't project through yell.com.
