New Corpus Christi Business Directory at the printers

A mockup of the new Corpus Christi 2019 Business Directory, which will be distributed to every residential and business address in Corpus Christi and the surrounding area in October.

The all-new Corpus Christi 2019 Business Directory has closed and is on its way to the printers. In just a few more weeks, the most innovative take on phone books will be in every household and business in Corpus Christi and the surrounding area.

The beloved “Blue Book,” formally known as the Corpus Christi Telephone and Internet Directory, takes print advertising to another level with a more compact, simplified, easier-to-use format that is backed 100 percent online. Advertisers in the new Business Directory get the most out of both major media platforms with superior design and search engine optimization.

“With the new book, it’s a lot easier to find local businesses,” said sales manager Bob Hotchkin, who is looking forward to seeing the Business Directory in action when it hits the streets in October. “This is definitely a better way to reach an audience. The new book will help obtain new customers for our advertisers, without a doubt.”

Faster than the speed of Google, color tabs along the front edge make searching for information easier than ever.

“You pick it up, find the tab, open it to find the best businesses in the Corpus Christi area,” Hotchkin said. “If your ad is there, your next customers are going to see it.”

While every local business still will be listed in alphabetical order in the blue business listing pages, the yellow pages section will only include paid display and bold listing advertisers.

“There’s no more clutter,” Hotckhin said. “Your next customers are going to see your ad when they open this book. By advertising in the Corpus Christi Business Directory, you are telling the community that you are a legitimate local business. You are projecting the image you want to project.”

For advertisers who want to be online as well, the Business Directory is backed by a vibrant, interactive website with daily news stories, business profiles, and the most comprehensive events calendar in the Coastal Bend. As a Google News Partner, Corpus Christi Business News at brings in the traffic, while an active social media presence boosts consumer interest.

The new book is an old favorite with customers looking for a quick response to their needs, whether for household services, automobile repair and purchase, restaurants, medical practitioners, legal, and more. After 20-plus years in the business, the Corpus Christi Business Directory is a mainstay in promoting businesses in the Coastal Bend area.

A publication of Texas Publishing Co., the Corpus Christi Business Directory is located at 4455 South Padre Island Drive, #4, in the Business Commerce Park. Texas Publishing also produces Corpus Christi Business News, Corpus Christi Living magazine and direct mail, 101 Fun Things to do in Corpus Christi,, and, among other subject-specific guides.
