Jambo VP Richard Rosen to Speak at DDC2006, The Kelsey Group's Annual Yellow Pages Conference, September 18-20 in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 19, 2006 --Jambo today announced that Richard Rosen, VP of Business Development, will be a featured speaker at "Directory Driven Commerce 2006" (DDC2006: The Future of Yellow Pages), The Kelsey Group's annual Yellow Pages conference, taking place September 18-20, 2006 at the Hyatt Century Plaza Hotel, Los Angeles, California. The theme of this year's event is "Adapting to a Shifting Marketplace." Rosen will participate on a panel entitled, Growing the Customer Base -- What Works? scheduled at 4:15 pm on Tuesday, September 19th of the conference.

"More than anything, it's vital that local merchants differentiate their sales efforts," Rosen said. "Merchants need a fresh story -- whether that be performance marketing, mobile, or Internet search. Pay-per-call is an attractive offer to long-tail merchants. As Kelsey Group research demonstrates, performance marketing/pay-per-call keeps advertising costs low, reduces churn, and increases retention. The consistent goal for local merchants should be to use technology to make advertising more efficient."

"We have assembled an extraordinary line-up of speakers representing every segment of the industry -- publishers, suppliers, advertisers and investors -- to examine the future of the Yellow Pages business," said Charles Laughlin, Kelsey Group analyst and DDC2006 conference chair. "We are fortunate to have Richard among our roster of speakers, and we look forward to his contribution to the conference."
