    Who uses yell.com ?

    I took an advert out last summer for window cleaning in my area at a price of £1080 Inc vat , was a bit of a gamble but within about 8 weeks I made it back so was just wondering if anyone else has had any success from yell.com ?

    example
    yell.com landed me a £150 gutter clean a neighbour saw me so landed that 1 for £200 gutters / small conny , did that today , another neighbour saw me doing that today landed them , another £200 job , another neighbour saw me next door landed a £120 gutter clean plus her mom's house plus her patio clean .

    so has anyone else advertised with yell.com ?

    Wouldn't pay for yell or Thompson I use the free ad space on both and get enough work through that rather than paying

    Depends what you want to spend your marketing budget on I guess.

    Price wise yell.com seems a bit of a rip off to me but if it's working for you and you are happy spending that sort of money just for a 12 month advert then fare enough.

    You will know after the 12 months is up how much extra work yell has actually generated for you in one-off's and recurring business. That is if you monitor where the leads are coming from properly. Then you can decide it's worth doing again or not next time.

    On a side note I'm sure there is an x yell telesales chap on here that would throw some light on how they operate.

    yell.com is excellent for me, I'm no.1 spot for gutter cleaning in my area, think it costs me £260 a year, this is my 2nd year and I get loads of calls. 1st year I took it out my 3rd call was a medical practice that got me £325
