    Just had a phone call from yell saying they seen my gumtree add and wanted to know a bit about my business, had to end call as I was on my way out, there going to call me back later.
    Anyone on here use them and do you have to pay and if so is it worth it ?

    Absolute waste of money. Cost me £650 last year for the whole package including a tracker that recorded how many people called me. 14 in the year. And 5 of them at least, were me checking if it worked, lol.[hr]
    Also. Who goes to the yellow pages for a phone number? Everyone uses google.
