18% Businesses Advertising Growth in Valparaiso, Indiana

Surge in local business advertising demonstrates commitment to expansion, City Councilman Bob Taylor comments on economic development.

 
PRLog - Jun. 23, 2011 - American Marketing & Publishing LLC reported today that the Valparaiso, Indiana economy shows signs of recovery as evidenced by substantial growth in local advertising by businesses serving Valparaiso.  The 2011 edition of the Valparaiso HomePages® Directory features 459 local businesses advertisements, an 18% increase over the prior edition.  

The US Postal Service is distributing 36,800 copies of the 2011 Valparaiso HomePages® Directory to every Valparaiso family, business, and post office box holder.  The Valparaiso HomePages® are a printed community directory including residential and business white pages, a community information section, and a categorized local business Yellow Pages.  Local information is also published online at http://CloseBy.com, an Internet Yellow Pages that submits business information to Google.  The 18% growth in local business advertising shows evidence of renewed enthusiasm toward the local economy.

“It’s very encouraging to see this level of economic optimism in Valparaiso.  Family owned businesses are the backbone of the country, and they do not spend money on advertising unless they are leaning forward.” said Abe Andrzejewski, CEO of American Marketing & Publishing, LLC.  

Bob Taylor, who represents District 1 in Valparaiso, has watched the growth this year.  “Things are looking much better than they were last year.  We’ve had a ton of growth, primarily among small businesses. Valparaiso is a great place to live and do business.”

Neal Polachek, President of BIA/Kelsey, a local media consulting and advisory service says, “Local and community Yellow Pages such as HomePages Directories have long been barometers of the local economy.  Many small businesses are often among the more sophisticated advertisers and as such, they generally have their thumb on the pulse of the economy and they tend to know what advertising works.  It is very encouraging to see this type of growth in Valparaiso in an otherwise subdued advertising market.”  


American Marketing & Publishing LLC publishes HomePages® Yellow Pages Directories in print and online at CloseBy.com in 415 small and medium sized communities in Kentucky, Illinois, Iowa, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.  Founded in 1997, HomePages Directories help families support their communities with complete listings and profiles of local businesses, community information, and residential phone numbers.
