Thanks to those who bought advertising space in this years' edition of the Lassen Plumas Connection telephone directory. We appreciate your confidence and trust in us and in the effectiveness of our locally produced phonebook.

We know there are lots of other choices when it comes to spending your advertising dollars, so we wanted to take this opportunity to give you a brief heads up: There are sales reps from other telephone directory companies currently working this area selling yellow page ads for their books.

If you do in fact decide to buy an ad from one of their well-trained salespeople, be sure you know what directory you're buying and its coverage/ readership. No harm in asking lots and lots of questions.

If you happen to have an ad in one of those other books you no longer want, you have to specifically cancel the order. At least with one of the directory companies, the agreement you signed with them when the ad was originally ordered automatically renews for the next year if it is not canceled with their sales rep by phone or in writing — even if they haven't contacted you for the new book!

Since we are here with you throughout the year, if we can further assist you in any way, give myself or one of our very experienced advertising consultants a call. We are happy to assist you in any way we can.
