Thomson Local

The news that the Thomson Local directory went into administration yesterday was no surprise. Obviously I wish the people who lost their jobs well, but the future of print directories looks pretty bleak.

Is anyone with a smartphone really going to go and find a copy of Thomson or Yellow Pages when they can search for whatever they want immediately? No, I don’t think so.

If you are a business owner, the message is clear; you need to have a website or Facebook prescence and you need to be findable through the major search engines.

If you are worried about the cost of getting online, we have some good news. Our Small Business Website package can cost as little as £249 to set up and £10 per month to run. This offers full content management, blog and the ability to support social media and marketing campaigns.

We reckon that’s pretty good value. If you agree, call us on 0333 123 0004 or email

It would be great to talk to you.
