As it is, there are loads of apps available for download to mobile devices, add one more to the list, people. Here comes YellowPagesGoesGreen.org, a large and well-known business directory which is known for being the first in the industry to aggressively and positively market itself as a forefront leader who cares about the world’s environment. The Yellow Pages directory app is said to be already available exclusively for Android phone users at the moment and we are not sure if there are plans to make the app available for Apple users or any other operating systems at this point in time.
What the app does is to help Android users find local businesses in and around their location and area without the need for books, magazines, paper-based directories or paper and pen. The directory was first known for being a leader in the paper-based directory, therefore, this signals a tremendous 180 degrees turnaround for the company. Admittedly, Yellow Pages has a large database for businesses all around the world.
Riding on the powerful wave of Google Maps and mobile devices’ GPS system, the app will be able to bring you up-to-date information about businesses around a specific area based on city, state and keyword; what this goes to show that you can work the app anywhere in the world. So, it matters not whether you are looking for a Chinese restaurant in New Zealand or a mall in Japan, all you need if your phone and chances of you getting lost there is reduced to the bare minimum.
If you are a business owner or a manager of a clothing outlet, you can easily log onto the app and list your own business in there as well and when customers are around that area and are looking for something you have to offer, your listing will appear. But that is not all there is to it because your customers can get in touch with you to book a table ahead of time if there is a need to. Business owners can also leverage on the system’s ability to offer users coupons and other promotional discounts.
Both listing of businesses and usage of the system is completely free of charge…and THAT is what is important. It brings your business right into the consumers’ hands completely free of charge.
There are currently more than fifteen billion apps being downloaded from the previously named ‘Market’ and now-named Google Play and the number of apps continues to grow exponentially, it is no doubt why YellowPagesGoesGreen.org chose the Android operating system. Now that there is a complete listing of businesses in and around your location, it eliminates the need to have paper-based listings and directories, doesn’t it? It is good news all around – for the consumers, businesses and Mother Earth.
