The Online Directory Advertising Specialist


YouCom Direct was launched in 2013 as YouDirectories, a specialist business directory agency created by YouCom Media. We focus on business directory advertising and local search, with a greater focus on all direct response advertising.

The content marketing strategy we use is focused towards local natural search, producing 1st page Google results. Our clients will tell you they are outperforming their competition (read their reviews). Their call volumes are higher than before they worked with us, their clicks are higher, their stores are more sold out than their competitors and the campaigns we run are pay-per-lead where clients only pay when the advertising performs.

We have experienced media planners who know all about competitor reach, geo-targeting and content marketing.

We have clients in seven EU countries.

ROI for current clients is our first priority so you will see a difference very quickly. But our client testimonials show their adverts have had more calls since switching to YouCom Direct and their budget is less than before.


This is the number of people who follow YouCom Direct online. We create more engagement on social media than any other directory agency.

We have the same effect on your directory campaign.

Google, Yahoo & Bing have online directories in their first results page. Local search marketing is our speciality.

Our Culture

We didn’t pay for consultants to establish our company values, they evolved organically and show what is important to us. We believe a company’s core values are the principles and standards at the very heart of their character – from which they will not stray. Our main values are:



Be better than good. Be better than yourself.


When people need your help, a quick response is always appreciated.


We are stronger together. Understand everyone’s life is important to them.


Just because others give up, doesn’t mean that you can’t succeed.

We’re a young media division within the YouCom family, so we’re a real tight knit crew. Every employee receives a progression path and an equal profit share. The result is a happy, stable account team for our clients.

We work hard, but at 11am we take a break for Kisstory and coffees!

“We have noticed a significant increase in calls since YouDirectories took over from our last agency and a higher conversion rate from calls to cases.”
