Yellow Pages United Offers BizYellow, a Cutting Edge Marketing Tool for Businesses

JACKSONVILLE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 02/21/14 -- Yellow Pages United recently announced the BizYellow business web page for businesses to improve their internet marketing. Each of their subscribers will receive a BizYellow page to help take advantage of online opportunities. To help customers find businesses wherever they are, this is a simple and quick tool. Promoting a business is a breeze with the easy to use features and simple user interface. Many businesses are already experiencing a spike in sales thanks to BizYellow.

BizYellow utilizes a multi-faceted approached to help Yellow Pages United customers succeed in their online marketing. Among the tools they offer are

  • Simplified social media that allows multiple posts from one entry
  • Mobile friendly pages
  • Video and photo uploads
  • Customer reviews with ability to respond to comments
  • Search engine optimization strategies
  • Upload e-coupons

Yellow Pages United makes it easier for those small business owners who have not had the time to use social media for their company. Right from the simplified BizYellow dashboard, users can use a fast single entry to post to both Twitter and Facebook. Plus, this option is likely to expand to other social media sites in the near future.

According to Google, 75 percent of tablet and smartphone users use their mobile device to learn about businesses before making a purchase. Customers can find reviews, business locations, social links, a clickable phone number, and more with the BizYellow pages, which are optimized for mobile use, and thus popular with search engines.

To help potential customers decide whether they want to buy a product or service, the BizYellow pages allow businesses to upload video and photos. At any time, subscribers can edit and upload images to a photo gallery. Plus, videos can be embedded in the company's listing. All is shareable on Facebook and Twitter.

Unique to BizYellow is the capability of business owners to respond to comments about their business. With most review sites, the actual businesses do not have the opportunity to face their critics. This is an invaluable tool for understanding what customers want or do not want.

Companies listed high in the search engine results are the ones that get the customers. The BizYellow web pages are optimized to show up high in the search results. This has led to increased traffic to Yellow Pages United's subscribers.

According to the Mobile Marketing Association, the redemption rate of e-coupons on a mobile device is ten times higher than that of printed coupons. The BizYellow web pages allow businesses to upload coupons, which has been shown to be an effective way to get consumers from the computer to the actual physical business.

Yellow Pages United is a Georgia based independent publisher of an online directory. As an independent publisher, they are not associated with any telephone companies, including AT&T or any Bell company. Since 2000, they have been serving business subscribers. Today, they have over 14 million listings in their database.
