Recently I had a prospective client who did appliance repair tell me that websites for small business owners are not needed, because when people need an appliance repaired, they always use their phone books. I told him I didn’t even have a phone book. He thought I was lying. Now I realize the white pages are not the yellow pages, but surely this article would have helped me win the debate: White Pages Face Last Call: Residential Phone Books’ Days Are Numbered
“Telephone companies argue that most consumers now check the Internet rather than flip through pages when they want to reach out and touch someone.”
I’d imagine the yellow pages will follow the same trend…Jill
