I don't want to start another discussion about the effectiveness of phone book ads, but I just got my new Manchester-Derry core yellow page book. It is noticeably thinner than last year. Last year, there were 13 picture framers listed with five 1/8 or 1/4 page display ads (including mine). In this new directory, the number of framers is down to 8 with only two display ads - one of them mine. I don’t know whether this is due mainly to the slow economy (two of my nearest competitors have gone belly up), or due to the fact that many companies are abandoning the YP and going exclusively with online advertising. Has anyone else noticed the thinning of the yellow pages?
