Flycast, R.H.Donnelley Team to Target Small Businesses

Flycast Communications, the ad network
owned by CMGI that’s being folded into
sister company Engage Technologies, on
Thursday inked a deal to provide ad services to R.H. Donnelley, the largest marketer of
yellow pages advertising in the US.

The deal calls for R.H. Donnelley to sell advertising on Flycast’s network
as part of a package, as it reaches out to small businesses. The yellow
pages marketer has also struck deals with IBM, and EarthLink as part of this effort to
sell small businesses on Internet services. Donnelley is calling the
package “get digital smart.”

For Flycast, and the other partners, this opens up new sales channels, and
gives them the opportunity to reach the small businesses with which
Donnelley has relationships.

“Understanding the needs of small businesses and developing strategies to
meet those needs is Donnelley’s core strength,” says Frank Noonan, chairman
and chief executive officer of R.H.Donnelley.

“The agreements we have with leading Internet companies will enable us to
help small businesses complement their traditional marketing activities and
extend their reach by capitalizing on the power of the Web.”

The initiative, which will be supported by a local ad campaign, is
beginning in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, area, and will be
expanded to other regions.
