A guide to getting your business listed in UK telephone directories

Within the UK, there are a variety of telephone directories in which to place your business. Many of these need to be paid for but if you don’t have the funds available, there are plenty of free online business directories where you can place your business information. This article is a guide to getting your business listed in UK telephone directories.

Yellow Pages

Yell provides advertisement both online and in their Yellow Pages telephone directories. You can choose from a variety of sizes for your advertisement, including a full or part colour option or specially prepared graphics. The website Yell.com provides comprehensive information about advertising both online and in the Yellow Pages directory. In order to get your business listed with Yell, all you need to do is to sign up through their website. From here, you can create a business profile, design your advert and decide upon where your advert is going to appear.

Thompson Local

Thompson Local is another directory featuring telephone book and online listings. There is a facility on the website to list your local business for free though listings in the actual telephone directories do incur a charge. Again, visit the Thompson Local website to sign up for a free business listing or to research the options for paid listings. By signing up for Thompson Local, you can add your business to its business finder and lookup facilities which will appear online or in the telephone book, or both, whatever your preference may be.

FreeIndex

FreeIndex is a popular online business directory for UK companies which provides detailed business information. You can create a business page and monitor page views and clicks through your website if you have one. It is very easy to set up and is a valuable way to advertise your business. Sign up for the directory and then create your business profile. You do need to complete a basic description of your products and services and input contact information including business telephone numbers, email addresses, and website details. Your listing will then be checked by the editorial team and once approved, your advert will then be live for people to search. Another useful feature of the FreeIndex website is that you can view and follow up on leads or place job advertisements if you require staff.
