Advertising

Finding everything is just a few clicks away


There are four ways to advertise on The Phonebook Company depending on the various needs of your organization:

1. Business Listings

Business Listings, apart from the main contact information (trade name, address, and telephone numbers etc.), companies are also able to provide potential customers with up to 200 words of additional information that best describes their business.

More specifically, a business listing can:
  • Display your e-mail, web page and company logo
  • Show your location on a map
  • Display a slogan about the company
  • Create a basic presentation of your products and services
2. Full Page Advertisements

A full page advertisement is an extension to a business listing and provides a clear picture of your products and services. We use a corporate approach when designing all advertisements and once you’re satisfied, we then link your profile to 5 related search categories to help users locate your business easily.

A full page advertisement can:
  • Create a full colour presentation of your organization
  • Feature an extended description, messages or discounts
  • Display a branch network and contact information
  • Include graphics and pictures for a more detailed presentation
  • Display company brands, logos and competitions for an exclusive effect
3. Banner Advertisements

It is the most popular way of advertising on the Internet and it is an ideal way of advertising for businesses that wish to increase their brand awareness and promote new products, services, and offerings, or specific messages to their potential customers. Choose between a front page sky-scrapper and a classified banner under any service category “e.g. Hotels” for users to find your business, even when they may not look for you.

4. Video Advertisements

This is the most definite option to consider for an immediate attention to your promotion. Video Advertisements are designed using flash animation and real video clips to enhance your brand and provide a real red carpet invitation for users to access your messages.
