Yellow Pages Clear Up Americans' Search for Glass Dealers.
BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J. -- Whether replacing a broken windshield or repairing a cracked window in your home, it is clear the Yellow Pages help Americans solve their glass needs. In fact, the Yellow Pages Association[TM] (YPA[TM]) reports the "Glass" Yellow Pages heading generates more than 86 million references annually, ranking it 27th out of more than 4,000 headings(1).
The "Glass" Yellow Pages heading is most frequently referenced when users need to repair a broken windshield (36 percent), replace a door, window or shower glass (20 percent), or repair vehicle glass other than a windshield (14 percent).
"Members tell us that Yellow Pages advertising is an important component in their outreach to consumers," said Michele Nosko, vice president of marketing for the National Glass Association (NGA). "Consumers in need of glass replacement or repair can also turn to NGA's Web site, www.glass.org, for a list of NGA dealer members in their area."
Demonstrating the power of Yellow Pages in a buying decision, 98 percent of "Glass" look-ups result in a purchase (1). These figures lead to $10 of revenue for every $1 spent on Yellow Pages display advertising by glass dealers (2).
"Glass dealers have historically relied on print and Internet Yellow Pages to help generate business because of the medium's high return on investment," said Larry Small, director of research for the YPA. "In fact, the average glass dealer's Yellow Pages display ad generates more than $133,000 in sales revenue annually (1)."
