Peggy has showed me where markets have changed and with her sweet attitude has set out a plan for me to not only save money but still have new customers. Peggy is the best, she has always been very polite. She has been very understanding when I am not able to answer the phone. I believe she has my best interest in mind and is not just there for the money. I've been satisfied with Directory Assistants Inc. Before using DAI it was always a guessing game as to what I really needed. I made the best decision I could but I think I was being overcharged.

Directory Assistants, Inc. was a great choice. I tried to negotiate my contact with Idearc Media to no avail. It was so much easier and way more cost effective to use DA. They have been there every step of the way. After the contract was signed I had billing issues and they took care of them for me. I would certainly recommend them.

Our DAI consultant demonstrated the actual savings we could achieve and backed it with excellent service from the entire staff. Working with DAI saved us time and money. If you deal with multiple directories, give DAI an opportunity to earn your business!

During a review of the upcoming Directory season, I was introduced to Mr. Dan Cassin from DAI. He took the time to express a desire to ensure that my hospital's needs were met. He explained many aspect of how the phone directories were put together and provided me with a great powerpoint that asissted me in determining what would be the most cost effective method for using the yellow pages. He was in touch with me from the onset to the completion of the project saving my organization over $6K in ad space that was not needed. Dan was a consumate professional that represented DAI well. I am a very satisfied customer of DAI and would refer other companies that need assistance in the future.

After attending a seminar given by DAI, I contacted them to see if we could lower our directory advertising costs. Not only did we save money but for the first time,I was able to see some of the unbiased data about how many households recieved each of the many books in our market, as well as data on who looks at yellow page advertising and what they look for. The information made a lot of sense and I could finally make an educated response to these costly ads without pressure from the comapny reps.
I am so glad that DAI could handle the interactions with each book rep and that the final ad products were reasonably priced. Working with Dan at DAI was so easy, I only wish I had done it sooner.

Overall our Yellow Page and Directory listings were confusing and constantly arriving in my mailbox. Our agency covers 17 counties in 2 states. DAI has been an enormous help in getting everything organized and saving our mid-sized not-for-profit agency money. We appreciate all of their hard work on our behalf!

Directory Assistants, Inc is a real STRESS RELIEVER!!
Annually, the most stressful part of my job was dealing with the Yellow Pages listing renewals. Each year I would have a different rep (that had no idea what went on last year) and he would show me how I could not get a smaller listing and save money, no, my large color listing was "a better deal" than a one line listing and less expensive! Also, the listing renewal process was so confusing as the renewals all occurred at different times--you could never tell exactly how much you would owe! With the help of Ed and DAI, we were able to have ads that were just as effective for a much lower rate, eliminate a lot of excess charges, and I don't have to deal with the Yellow Pages reps! Thank you Ed and DAI for saving us money and relieving my stress!

DAI levels the playing field for the yellow page customer with the vendors. This assistance is necessary because of the annual change in the yellow page purchase programs that are already complex and convuloted. The customer never gets the full story from the yellow page vendors because it is so complex and would take longer for them to explain their programs than they can afford to spend with any one customer.
Our DAI consultant was extraordinary. He explained his philosophy and his purchase recommendations, listened to what I felt I needed and then we discussed each point, particularly where we had differences. He respected our goals, even when at odds with his recommendations.
The best part is that we now have a yellow page program that compliments the rest of marketing and our costs for yellow page advertising are going down and we're saving money.

Initially, I was reluctant to speak with DAI, as dealing with solicitors is one of my least favorite tasks. However, our advertising costs were skyrocketing, and DAI offered their review at no charge. My consultant was very familier with the language of yellow pages contracts, and was able to clearly explain what we were paying for. He then walked through a very logical and educational exercise demonstrating how our patients would actually use the directories to find us. We adopted their advertising advice, and one year later, have had the same volume of traffic from yellow page advertising as we had the year before, at a savings of more than 50%.
In addition to the monetary savings, DAI deals directly with the yellow pages sales representatives, relieving me of that unpleasant annual duty.

Directory Assistants were fantastic! I hate having to deal with the yellow pages every year. Always someone different and always telling you something different year after year. They think they try to help you but they really don't. Directory Assistants opened my eyes to how overpriced an ad in the yellow pages really is. The staff is terrific and give great information. I would highly recommend them to anyone trying to save a lot of money!

One of the more distasteful part of my job was to deal with telephone book advertising - aka "yellow pages." In my humble opinion this industry is somewhat similar to being issued licenses to steal. One time a year a salesperson shows up on your doorstep to tell you how you should spend your money and as a person with a long list of things to do on a daily basis, it was never a convenient time. More times than not I simply renewed and got them out of the office. It seemed like every couple of years a new book was being published and one felt that you needed to be in that book too, just in case the other hospitals were going to be in that book. So, with a limited window of time to respond you were encouraged to try one of the many confusing options.

Along comes a "knight in shining armor" DAI! They take care of everything and save me money too! No more calls, emails, people dropping in to talk about bolding, in line, white page, yellow page, boxed, classified, links to web sites, etc. Oh, and we need this signed today to make the deadline.

I was amazed to learn of the little things that could be done differently, achieve the same results and still save me money. They patiently walked me through the process and explained how our hospital could get bigger bang for the buck - and, as stated, at a savings, even when including their fees. Adam and Sue and the other team members are on top of my account and I know I can count on them!

It has been one of the better investments I think I've made since entering this field.

I have nothing but praise for DAI and their team. It has been a pleasure working with them and I strongly recommend them to any hospital looking for ways to 1) save money, 2) spend less time on "yellow page" issues and 3) still meet your goals of exposure.

I appreciate the opportunity to provide a reference for Directory Assistants, Inc.

The annual update of the yellow page listings has always been a task left to the very last. Each year it seemed necessary to place larger or more ads to "save" money. After speaking with Ed at DAI, he helped me understand how our listings are used, and that we could better spend our marketing budget elsewhere!

I wish I had known about Directory Assistants several years ago! We have never known how effective our yellow page ads were in the past, or whether we were spending the right amount of money on them. As a small business, it was always more of a guessing game for us. We advertised in all the categories you might expect to find a bank and we thought we needed a good-sized, color ad to be noticed. Obviously, this was very costly. Adam at DAI presented us with the research regarding the use of the yellow pages for our industry and showed how we could save thousands of dollars without having to worry about loss of exposure. We quickly discovered we had been over-advertising for years and scaled back our ads significantly. Had we not had DAI's help, we may have still been paying a small fortune for years.

DAI ROCKS! I hated the Yellow Page renewal process and it killed me how much we had to pay for it. Truth is, we were not getting out moneys worth at all. A lot of the consumers we got from the Yellow Pages we didn't even want because they didn't have insurance! But in this day and age we know you have to at least have a presence in the Yellow Pages. So after our initial meeting with DAI, it opened my eyes to just how much money we were wasting with redundant ads! We have saved a bundle of money and - most importantly - it has freed up my time to take care of other more pressing marketing issues. I also experienced the bonus of a free education on advertising from DAI - THANK YOU!

I have dreaded the Yellow Page renewal process every year it comes around. In our industry, customers don't typically choose us because of our YP presence, yet it is necessary. We've felt bound by current terms, wanted to reduce the cost, but weren't sure how. DAI helped us do this quickly, effectively, and with very little time on my part. Most importantly, the process helped our bottom line by saving money and time for the next few years.

I love working in a dynamic company and a dynamic industry, but like many in the communications and marketing field, I wear a lot of hats and manage a lot of vendor relationships. Managing yellow page contracts for multiple lines of business across a wide service territory has always been a major headache and something that I just didn't have the time or desire to do. The team at DAI has been a welcome addition! They now manage all of the contracts and hassles and have saved me hours of work and saved our company thousands of dollars.

Directory Assistants, Inc. really opened my eyes to how customers use the yellowpages and helped us save tens of thousands of dollars. They also took the hassle out of dealing with several different yellowpage vendors, now I just contact DAI and they do the work for me.

I have found DAI to be quite helpful (and patient with me) in deciphering through the Yellow Page maze of information. It's so nice to simply pass on all those YP rep calls directly to DAI, as well as all the requests. I don't handle it---they do!! This frees me up to do what I like to do and am good at in my business.
