Why Yellow Pages? 

Yellow pages aren't glamorous, even with the excitement of the internet thrown in.  But yellow pages advertising is stimulating to your customers.  No other form of advertising has been proven to evoke a response with more frequency than yellow pages, and that makes it a necessity for your business: 

  • YP users are event-driven and ready to buy:  48% of users have a decision to make at the time of the reference to YP.1
  • As reported by consumers, YP continues to be the dominant medium that influenced their purchase decisions.2
  • 82% of print YP users and 68% of internet YP users contact the business after referencing the YP.1
  • In 2006, consumers made 13.4 references to print YP, and 82% of those made a contact with a business: highest of all media.1
  • 42% of print YP users and 40% of internet YP users make a purchase after referencing the YP.1
  • The average ROI for YP is about the same as for online and search advertising and exceeds all other media.3
  • YP users spend 25% more than the average customer.1
  • Estimated 13.4 billion YP references made by U.S. adult consumers in 2006.4
  • 33% of YP users do not have a business name in mind of where to make a purchase.  YP users with one name in mind still look at an average of four ads before making a purchase decision.4


Why Use a CMR? 

A Certified Marketing Representative (CMR) is a specialized agency that is authorized to place yellow page advertising for qualifying national and regional clients in over 7,000 directories in the U.S. and around the world. 

  • The agency has met the Yellow Pages Association's qualifications to become a CMR, has received special training in YP ad planning and placement, and must pass a series of exams before being awarded CMR status.
  • The status of CMR must be earned, and not every advertising agency is a qualified CMR.  Even if these agencies do place yellow pages advertising, they don't have access to the advantages of YPA industry information, national advertising incentives, and the convenience of national ad placement……plus, they'll normally charge you their commission on top of the cost of the yellow pages advertising.
  • A CMR is authorized by the client to research, develop, design, and administer their regional or national yellow pages advertising, making it simpler for the client to manage multiple directory placements and billings.
  • Rather than working with separate sales people employed by each publisher on individual books, qualifying clients work with one CMR who organizes and implements all YP programs, in multiple markets, with any publisher.  Only a CMR can give you the convenience of one contact, one contract, one billing source.


Becoming a Client 

To become a MRNYP client, you must qualify to be a national or regional account.  To qualify as a national account, you must: 

         Advertise in 20 or more yellow pages directories  

         Advertise in 3 or more states  

         Advertise with 2 or more yellow pages publishers  

         Spend at least 30% of your advertising dollars outside of your primary state  

If you don't qualify as a national account, you may still be eligible to take advantage of the many benefits of a CMR - contact us to see if you qualify as a regional account.  Either way, we'll make yellow pages advertising EASY for you!
