Advertising Rates | 2010/2011


Our History Before Quick Find Directories was established, we were involved in the trades market. We owned and managed a company that provided a maintenance and repair service for the domestic appliance market. We constantly advertised in Yellow Pages and local newspapers, where we found the advertising costs were very high and the response from adverts poor, reducing year by year. In our extensive research, trying to source cheaper and more local advertising, we contacted a number of fellow traders who were also finding the costs of advertising high. Quick Find Directories Ltd was the result. We formed the company in 2004. It immediately proved to be successful and quickly expanded, through popular demand from customers and advertisers alike. We now have an annual distribution to over 1,000,000 homes in quality areas in and around the Birmingham area.

The Benefits Our success is due to the fact that our directories work for our advertisers, resulting in our customers advertising in at least two or more directories. Our renewal rate is around 80%, this shows that householders like and use our directory. They know that selecting a company from our directory, will guarantee them an honest and reliable tradesman. Many tradesmen now only rely on Quick Find Directories Ltd for advertising and have cancelled all other advertising with other larger directories.

It’s a Fact The kitchen is the most used room in the home and it makes sense to have a local directory that is close at hand. Where better than the fridge? Other directories are too large and not local enough. Quick Find Directories is the only local directory that is handy enough to use when needed, with local services, emergency numbers, local trades and more. There’s no longer any need to trawl through hundreds of unknown tradesmen, Quick Find Directories contains local tradesmen that are already vetted and recommended. Most householders have issues with trust where tradesmen are concerned. Television programmes such as Rogue Traders and House of Horrors illustrate what can go wrong. Quick Find Directories weeds out the cowboys and leaves the consumers with the peace of mind that comes from dealing with our vetted and recommended trades with our readily at hand easy to use Quick Find Directory. Spaces are limited so please call to avoid disappointment.
