Advertising through Internet has become one of
the most effective vehicles for businesses of all kinds. It is effective
because advertisers can target their potential customer base accurately.
The advertisement can be only placed in those homepages that potential
consumers may be viewing. This becomes more important when the advertiser
offers a specialty product or service. Businesses that cater their services
to the Iranian community and enthusiasts fall into this category. Up to
now these businesses either have not had a means to advertise or have been
limited to their immediate community. In either case, the return on advertisement
investment has been too low. Therefore, it has been difficult to justify
the cost of advertising . This has made it impossible for many of these
businesses to grow to their full potential. Fortunately, with the advent
of Internet, this has changed.

and 365 days per year. Therefore, it serves both businesses that serve
their immediate community as well as those who would like to market their

and consumers, Iran Online has designed specific features for its Yellow
Pages site which make it possible for the viewer to locate specific advertisements
How long Iran Online Yellow Pages has been in operation?

In 1998 the site was completely redesigned to make a wide range of options, features and services available to both business owners and Iran Online Yellow Pages visitors.

Iranian site. To maximize exposure, businesses that are catered to

phone directories available online. Iran Online Yellow Pages offers
the best targeted online advertising to those who wish to advertise their
services to the Iranian community. Because of the popularity of the
Iran Online Forum and the unique services that Yellow Pages offers, www.IranianYellowPages.com

What is the advantage of advertising in Iranian Online yellow pages versus having my own homepage?
There are currently millions of homepages on Internet. A homepage by itself has no visibility on Internet. These homepages become alive only when they are grouped together in a site that is specifically designed for this purpose and offers more options than just one homepage. An example of this is the difference between a store which is along the side of the road by itself with no fancy signs or attraction versus a similar store that is in the middle of a large shopping mall or bazaar. Iranian Online Yellow Pages creates the same ambiance as a shopping mall in the cyberspace.
