The 2019 Corpus Christi Business Directories are here

Office Manager Angela Sciantarelli announces arrival of the 2019 Corpus Christi Business Directory. Look for the bright blue bag on your doorstep. It contains a trusted publication in an all-new format for speed and ease of use.

The Corpus Christi 2019 Business Directory might already be on your doorstep. Look for the traditional bright blue bag, but don’t throw it away. This year’s book is not your ordinary phone book.

“I am more excited about this directory than I have been for any directory in the 20 years we’ve been publishing,” Sales Manager Bob Hotchkin said. “It’s fun, it’s innovative, it’s state-of-the art.”

Changes include the size of the book, which is much easier to handle.

“The new format is less bulky,” Hotchkin said. “It’s easier to keep in your desk or kitchen drawer but still has everything you need for your home or office.”

Another new feature, color tabs marking each section of the yellow pages, make finding what you need quicker and easier than ever before.

Better yet, advertisers in the book have a vibrant online presence at, where they are grouped by subject closely representing the color tabs. Interactive ads on the fully mobile site make it possible to bring the Corpus Christi Business Directory with you wherever you and your smartphone go.

“Open up any browser on your phone to, and you’ll find the same services and professionals listed that are in the yellow pages,” Hotchkin said. “Touch a phone number and you call the business. You can even touch the map and get directions to the business you’re interested in.”

Tips and helpful information about each subject can also be found in print and online. The website at updates regularly with new information and the latest developments in the industries represented.

The website makes it possible for advertisers to freshen their content throughout the year. It also offers one of several options for advertisers who missed the deadline for this year’s book.

“We have other ways to get your business in front of potential customers between now and the deadline for the 2020 book,” said Hotchkin, naming the Corpus Christi Business News and Corpus Living magazine/direct mail publications as just two of the possibilities.

Corpus Christi Business News mails 10,000 copies to area business owners each month. Its website prints new stories daily and sends out an email newsletter each week to opt-in subscribers.

Corpus Christi Living is mailed to 50,000 of the city’s highest-income ZIP codes: 25,000 one month and a different 25,000 the second month.

Online and newsletter advertising are also available.

“Our advertisers are happy with the responses they get from our publications,” Hotchkin said. “Our business grows when our advertisers’ businesses grow and we are growing.”

The work on next year’s book has already begun for those interested in making sure their business or service is included.

“Once you see this year’s book, you are going to want to be in the next one,” Hotchkin said. “The best discounted advertising packages are available before the first of the year.”
