Lakewood cheder Directory given out free to residents

A sign of the times the 2017 Lakewood phone directory was distributed free of charge to residents. The Lakewood cheder published the directory as a fundraiser. As technology advances the paper phone book is more obsolete and people rely more on  digital formats such as the smart list. Another factor is people dont have landlines anymore. This created a problem for advertisers since people no longer buy the book, giving it out as a complimentary gift is a smart choice.

  1. They increased the advertiser's fees to compensate. But still a smart decision.

  2. And Lakewooddirectory.com is also great, though I am not sure how ads work that way.

  3. As a dide note i never understood whyat least the advertisers did not receive a free copy. They charge a nice premium from advertisers.

    It seems like a last ditch effort before it goes the way if the Model T. If no one needs it, who will read the ads?
