Fairfield County, OH (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
A recent study initiated by Haines Publishing shows that 71% of residents in Greater Fairfield County use the print yellow pages first when looking for local business information.
The study, conducted by ITM Marketing (Coshocton, OH) in December 2011, covered cities including Amanda, Baltimore, Lancaster, Logan, New Lexington, Pickerington, and Somerset.
Residents were asked if they used their local yellow pages or the internet first when searching for a local business. The study showed 89% used the yellow pages first in Amanda, 80% in Lancaster, 76% in Logan, 74% in New Lexington, 69% in Baltimore, 58% in Somerset, and 47% in Pickerington.
“These studies confirm what those of us in the yellow page industry already know – yellow pages remain an important consumer resource alongside the internet,” said Terry Pacelli, Vice President of Haines Publishing, Inc. “People are using their local print yellow pages to find businesses.”
