411 Freedom: Tip-of-the-Day #101


Hopefully everyone has heard of (and is using) 1-800-GOOG-411 for all of their "411" needs. About 2.6 billion 411 calls are made in the U.S. each year, and it was a $7 billion/year market.

Goog-411 has turned this lucrative business on its head. The product is completely automated (no humans involved in the information-gathering process) and so the reduced overhead is passed on to you and me.

Like the 411 of your youth, you identify your city and state, and then ask for a specific business or business category. Results are spoken back or text messaged back to you, and you are automatically put through to the phone number requested.

I'm saving at least $10 on my cell bill each month by using this free 411. Amen.
