- hibu Websites
We help SMEs achieve a professional presence online with three flexible delivery options: do-it-yourself (DIY), build-it-for-me and build-and-manage-it-for-me, so each type of business owner is served. Businesses can switch between these options whenever they wish.
hibu Websites are automatically optimised for viewing on all devices whether it is a smartphone, tablet or computer. Each site comes with hibu Wave, a service that creates business pages on Facebook and Twitter; profiles on key sites such as Google+ Local, Yelp and Scoot as well as automatic listings on hundreds of directories and sites across the Web.
All hibu Websites are created using search engine optimisation (SEO) best practices and our customers’ local listing information is distributed across the internet, on the major search engines, increasing their visibility, presence and reach, helping them to manage their reputation online.
- Internet Yellow Pages (iYP)
Our principle digital directories are Yell.com (in the UK), Yellowbook.com (US), Paginasamarillas.es (Spain), Paginasamarillas.com.ar (Argentina), Amarillas.cl (Chile) and Paginasamarillas.com.pe (Peru). These directories give businesses additional facilities to increase content and online presence whilst ensuring flexibility to suit budget and scale.
Our iYP services are also available on mobile. We have state of the art applications that offer more than a search function, such as reviews, and that deliver an optimal consumer experience on the go.
- Traffic generation
Our search marketing and display advertising products drive traffic to our customers’ websites.
We work with Microsoft, Google and other search providers to help our SMEs connect with a rich source of consumers and get the most out of search marketing and pay per click. We can fully manage the whole process for our SMEs, which can be complex and time consuming.
Additionally, through our online display product, we put our SMEs’ online advertisements on our partners’ websites, increasing presence and reach.
- Yellow pages directories
Our business-to-consumer yellow pages directories feature classified advertising through a range of advertisement types. Businesses pay for advertisements based on size, colour and artwork ranging from a black and white quarter column advert to a full page colour spread. We provide dedicated phone lines, enabling our advertisers to see when business leads have come from our yellow pages directories.
Millions of people use our yellow pages printed products every day to find the businesses for which they are looking.
- White pages directories
Our white pages directories, produced in four of our territories, are directories that alphabetically list all the telephone numbers for companies and individuals in the directory coverage area. They are a useful tool for quick reference for consumers who know whose number they require, or which business they wish to contact.
- Directory assistance
We provide telephone based information services that serve consumers seeking information on businesses and services over the phone. For consumers seeking information on the go, or without access to our online products, this is an alternate solution.
We provide directory assistance services in the UK (118 24 7*), Spain (11888) and Chile (007).
* 118 24 7 call rates – calls cost 70p per minute and 150p connection charge.
