Advertising Opportunities

Banner Advertising with TriCounty is an easy and affordable way to market your company.

We offer three ways to utilize this service. The best way is to link your banner ad to your web site. If you do not have a web site, you can link the banner ad to your email address. In the event you do not have a web site or an email address, your banner ad can link to an article that you publish on, describing your business. If you do not have a web site or email address, we can help do this for you as well.

Many businesses are already using this service to spread the word about their business. You can too! Just email or call us and we will begin the development of your banner ad at $45 per banner, and launch your ad for $39.95 a month. Take a look at our brochure for banner ad specifications. Once your banner ad is designed, we will contact you for approval, then post it to our Community Website,

To view examples of LIVE banner ads, please visit and examine the ads listed on the side and middle of the website.

Everyone loves the Big Little Book—big on features, little in size.
Do you own a business and want to increase your sales? Do you advertise in the TriCounty Regional Telephone Directory? Yadtel Publishing canvasses businesses in the area for yellow page advertising each year beginning in September through November for publication in February.

TriCounty's Regional Telephone Directory is a favorite among locals. We are proud to announce our current Directory is better than ever and is the same small size you have come to love. The “little” book is often found in people’s cars and includes listings for Pike Road, Sidney, Pinetown, Washington, Aurora, Belhaven, Bath, Engelhard, Ocracoke, Swan Quarter, Creswell and Plymouth.

The directory is published annually in February with approximately 30,000 home and business deliveries normally completed by mid-February. The cover picture, featuring a local scenic venue, rotates between the three counties served by TriCounty Broadband and is contributed by local photographers.

Benefits of being in the TriCounty Regional Telephone Directory.
First, the obvious—it’s a year of ads. You will be getting your money’s worth because people are going to see your ad for an entire year! Your investment will pay off every month.

Secondly, think of the wide range of people that will see your ad. Over 30,000 directories are distributed in households, businesses and chambers of commerce in Beaufort, Hyde and Washington counties.

Lastly, you’ll be advertising 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with a yellow page ad. Because of the convenient size, many people carry the TriCounty directory in their car as well as keeping one in their house. That is good use of your advertising dollars.
