In 1981, Directory One began helping our clients with Yellow Pages advertising, and over the next 15 years, we continued expanding and enhancing the directories that we specialize in. In our Yellow Pages work, we tried to save the consumer money on their Directory Advertising, making our money based on how much we could save the customer. We never felt that Yellow Pages advertising was sold fairly, so as our expertise in Yellow Pages directories grew, we were able to expand into other areas as well.
We have featured a great roster of talent throughout the years, people that are able to help our customers truly shine. One of our first graphic artists, Andrea Dillon, designed the logo for 2nd Baptist Church in Houston, and also created the mural at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.
Directory One has grown and expanded into many different industries throughout the years. In the late 90’s and at the turn of the century, we started listing web pages in online directories such as Google, Yahoo, and many of the original online directories.
Just like many advertisers in the yellow pages, our clients wanted to appear at the top of the pages for their business type, and this launched our booming SEO Business.
We were one of the first website design companies to specialize in SEO (Search Engine Optimization). In 2004, Directory One acquired Artistic Video and Around Houston Web Design. During this period, we had employees at HBU, University of Houston, and Rice in the newly formed Internet Marketing departments.
Directory One has been directly involved in the education of many top talents in the SEO business.
Our goal today is still to create leads for our customers using directories like Google, Yahoo, Yelp, etc., thereby creating a cost-effective way for our customers to grow their businesses and expand their profitability.
