Yellow Pages rebrands to Yello

Cayman Islands Yellow Pages has changed its brand name to Yello with the unveiling of a new online directory and distribution of locally designed print directory covers.

The company said the change is in response to customer demand, consumer expectations and to position the company to take advantage of the latest developments in the advertising industry.

“We have fast tracked the evolution which began some years ago, moving from a directory brand that advertisers have come to know and trust to a full service media business charting a new direction for advertising in the 21st century,” said Mark Macfee, president of the parent company, Yello Media Group. “One of the noticeable changes is our online directory platform changing from www.caymanyp.com to www.findyello.com, featuring the Cayman Island’s most comprehensive listing database with local editorial content, a simpler modern interface, innovative design and easier site navigation to enhance the users’ search experience. Visitors to the site will benefit from expert content highlighting what’s happening in Cayman as well as business tips and reviews from our team of content writers.”

Trevor Burke, sales manager of Yello Media Group said, “the new Yello offers improved customer experience, new products and features, plus a stronger platform to showcase our advertisers, enabling them to reach a wider and more diverse audience.”

Flow1 will be accompanied by a transition to HD.
