Fast-growing Online Company Opens Offices in North Carolina
New York, NY – Yodle, a leader in local online advertising and lead generation for small businesses, opens its Charlotte office today. Already operating offices out of Boston, New York, Washington DC, Atlanta and Philadelphia, Yodle has helped thousands of small business owners grow their businesses by generating highly qualified phone calls and new customers for them via the web.
Yodle's goal is to make buying online ads simple and easy for small businesses and to offer a high-performing, cost-effective alternative to the outdated Yellow Pages, previously the standard for small business advertising.
Founded in 2005 by Wharton student Nathaniel Stevens (one of BusinessWeek's Best Young Entrepreneurs of 2007), Yodle delivers tangible results for its customers, focusing on generating phone calls instead of web clicks. It is estimated that $1 invested with Yodle results in $8 in additional profit for small business owners such as electricians, lawyers, spa owners, roofers, plumbers and florists.
According to researcher Kelsey Group, 63% of people looking for a local business start their search online. Yodle will begin to help Charlotte small businesses take advantage of this enormous opportunity.
Court Cunningham, CEO of Yodle, notes, "Yodle now offers small business owners something they have never had before; they know exactly what their return on investment is using Yodle's industry leading Call Tracking and integrated LeadManager™ tools. This level of transparency is new to small business owners who traditionally advertise in the Yellow Pages. With no long-term contracts and a clear method to track performance, this is a low risk and potentially high reward investment for any small business to make."
Yodle's new Charlotte office is located at 9140 Arrowpoint Blvd, Suite 250.
