New York, NY - Yodle, a leader in local online marketing and lead generation for small businesses, opens its Atlanta office today. Already operating offices out of New York, Washington DC, Philadelphia and Boston, Yodle has generated over 107,000 calls to date for their small business customers.
Each month billions of consumers use the Internet to find what they are looking for – and 63% of people looking for a local business start their search online, according to Kelsey Group. Now it’s time for Atlanta’s small businesses to profit from those numbers and get in on the online advertising game. Yodle will help small businesses use the Web to attract much sought-after local customers.
Founded in 2005 by Wharton student Nathaniel Stevens, Yodle transforms the way small businesses position themselves in the local online ad market. Yodle’s unique platform offers a simple and high performing alternative to the decades-old Yellow Pages by tracking down the correct audience, and driving new business leads by phone to local companies - even monitoring those phone calls to deliver quantifiable results for clients.
Yodle generates 7,000 phone call leads a month for its customers – that’s about one every five minutes – and that number is growing at 20 percent a month. On average, $1 invested with Yodle results in $8 in additional profit for small businesses like electricians, lawyers, doctors, roofers and even florists.
Court Cunningham, CEO of Yodle, notes, “We want to give the plumber in Marietta and the dentist in Alpharetta an opportunity to reap the benefits of online advertising in a reliable and affordable way. With our soup-to-nuts online advertising solution, we’re working for local businesses in a way that Yellow Pages never has – and never could. There are millions of disenfranchised small businesses across the country, which means a huge opportunity for Yodle to help aggregate real leads – actual calls – and use our unique technology in a way that maximizes the potential of the Web like no one else can.”
Yodle’s new Atlanta office is located at 2475 Northwinds Pkwy, Suite 200, Alpharetta, Georgia 30004.
