Default Yellow Page Advertisment


I am a computer repairman and web designer. I have not decided on a business name yet. I would like an ad in the yellow pages. I am considering naming my business either "AAA Computer Repair," or "Advantage Computer Repair" so that my ad appears in the front of the other ads. The "Advantage" one would put it in third place. The "AAA" one would put it in either second or first. (The first one right now is named "A+ Computer Repair" -- I'm not sure how they rank them.) I was also considering getting a large ad, but my phone company (Qwest) refuses to tell me how much it will cost until I start a business account. I live in a town of about 120,000 people. I read somewhere that the average price nationally for a 3.5-inch ad was $1,000 in 2003.

So, I was wondering (1) which business name gives a better impression, (2) whether being first, second, or third would make much of a difference, (3) how much a yellow-page ad would probably cost, and (4) whether a large ad would be worth it.

Thanks very much for any help,
