How Will I Make Money?
You make money by selling ads in your licensed Directories. A 16-page Directory can produce income to you (after your printing expense) from $0 to $5,000 and up monthly depending on the pricing of your ads and the the number of ads you sell. A 32 page Directory can produce income to you (after your printing expense) from $0 to $10,000 and up monthly depending on the pricing of your ads and the number of ads you sell.
What Are the Activities of a Publisher?
- As the owner, you are able to work out of your home. You will be contacting your customers by email, phone, and at their place of business.
- There are no employees needed to operate your business. You should be able to handle the sales and deliveries of your directory. Some of our publishers do contract with others to help with their deliveries.
- The ideal hours to contact most of your potential customers are between 10:30am and 3:30pm each day.
- Your work will include organizing and contacting your clients, "selling" ad space, obtaining information for your ads, sending this information to your graphic artist (typically by email), providing the proof of the ad to your customer, placing your ads in a mock layout for printing position, and reviewing your directory layout for printing. During the printing process you can rest and enjoy being in business for yourself!
- (...Wondering how you will know how to do all of this? Don't worry, we provide all the tools, knowledge, and information you'll need to succeed!)
Is There Competition?
Yes! The competition varies from radio, cable TV, local newspapers, to various types of magazines. However, we have found our Directories to be the best value available for your advertisers to reach new customers because of your targeted marketing and controlled circulation.
