May 23, 2011 - PRLog -- American Marketing & Publishing LLC reported today that the Anamosa, Indiana economy shows signs of recovery as evidenced by substantial growth in local advertising by businesses serving Anamosa.  The 2011 edition of the Anamosa HomePages® Directory features 133 local businesses advertisements, a significant increase over the prior edition.  

The US Postal Service completed distribution of 4,500 copies of the 2011 Anamosa HomePages® Directory to every Anamosa family, business, and post office box holder.  The Anamosa 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, an Internet Yellow Pages that submits business information to Google.  The 20% growth in local business advertising shows evidence of renewed enthusiasm toward the local economy.

“It’s very encouraging to qbdvd see this level of economic optimism in Anamosa.  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.  

When asked for comment, it was clear that Anamosa mayor Dale Barnes was very pleased with the progress. “That’s good that things are up. I hope that Anamosa businesses continue to grow and expand. Anamosa is a wonderful place to live and work.”          

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 Anamosa in an otherwise subdued advertising market.”
