Ambassador Adds Search Engine Marketing to Yellow Page Power

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 12, 2007) - Ambassador Media Group, a NY-based print and online media company, has connected millions of buyers and sellers over the past eight years. A leader in local search, Ambassador has been on the forefront of the growth of consumers who shop for products and services online. As more buyers -- especially during the busy holiday shopping season -- are turning to the internet, Ambassador Internet has the perfect patent-pending solution for businesses looking to help these shoppers find them online.

"More people than ever before are turning to the Internet to buy gifts, find products and procure local services," said Kathy Hipple, Ambassador's CEO. "We live in an age when people are flocking to make purchases online, in record numbers."

"Savvy businesses want to capture these buyers who shop online," noted Sergio Alvarez, Ambassador's Internet VP. "New York business owners know that many purchases begin with consumers shopping online -- looking for that perfect gift, sending flowers, selecting a romantic restaurant, ordering food and drink for parties. This is especially true during the holidays."

Business owners are busy, too. Many businesses have web sites, but they lack the time and the expertise to direct online traffic to their web sites. Businesses that do not promote their products and services online are finding it harder to compete in today's marketplace. Ambassador Internet can help these businesses attract customers who research or shop online for holiday as well as everyday purchases.

Ambassador Internet makes it easy for business owners. The company offers businesses a way to attract ready-to-buy customers online and to record all traffic to their web sites. Through its patent-pending technology, Ambassador places businesses' ads across all major and secondary search engines. Ambassador records clicks, contact-us forms, emails, even phone calls to businesses. A busy shopper will find local business on virtually every search engine, from Google and Yahoo! to search boxes on AOL, and

Local search is exploding, and is expected to be a $5 billion domestic industry by 2010. But that's only part of the story. For every dollar spent online, five or six additional dollars are spent offline.

No matter what size or type of business, Ambassador Internet can help. In the competitive business environment of New York City, business owners can increase the number of consumers who shop for their products and services offline by advertising online. Ambassador helps all businesses, from those who don't yet have a web site to those who have an ecommerce site that allows them to ship their products around the world.

As a media company that has proudly served New York businesses reach millions of ready-to-buy customers through its yellow pages since 2000, Ambassador continues to help business owners reach customers who search in print or online.

"We understand that more and more business is being conducted online," added Rich Hargrave, Ambassador's Internet VP. "And we want to help business owners trying to reach these customers with a potent marketing message."
