About Yell

We've been connecting buyers and sellers for 50 years

1966. The year England won the World Cup. And the year the first Yellow Pages was printed, in Brighton.

2016 and we’re still going strong. We’ve made it our mission to help businesses find and connect with customers. As you can imagine, we’ve seen (and often led) some big changes in the way businesses market themselves, not least of which is the internet.

Today, we’re still the experts in bringing local buyers and sellers together. Except now we’re doing it digitally - in fact, we’re one of the biggest providers of digital marketing services in the UK. Offering a personal service tailored for you and your business, we’re all about getting you proven results. Something we still aim to be doing in 2066.
