You probably saw our recent post about new research released by Borrell and Associates which predicts the rapid demise of traditional yellow pages, and the rise of online video in its place. Following the release of that research, Citysearch, a leading online local destination (also known as an internet yellow pages directory, or IYP) is taking a pro-active approach to capturing market share as soon as possible.
They have announced that through the end of August 2008, they are giving new customers a FREE, custom produced, online video. Furthermore, they are allowing customers to embed the video on their own website which is a welcome departure from the methods in which other IYPs currently offer online video products.
UPDATE: So, I have tried to take advantage of this for my business numerous times, and for the life of me, can not find anything on their site about it. Not only that, but I went to the new customer sign-up area and there was no mention. Guess this is something you have to specifically ask for? Anyone know. Not very useful if SMBs cant figure out how to take advantage of the offering.
