Data Publishing, Inc., headquartered in Bluffton, South Carolina, was established in 1986 with the goal of offering a comprehensive suite of professional services including advertising sales of yellow pages, telephone directory design and layout and in-market distribution. The company, a subsidiary of Horry Telephone Cooperative, Inc., continues to produce the best-in-class book focusing on quality, accuracy, content and customer usability.


Data Publishing partners with regional telephone companies to publish telephone directories and increase revenues through the sales of yellow pages advertising. Today, the company publishes twelve directories in four southeastern states, working closely with rural and independent telephone companies. The company also publishes directories for private residential and mixed-use communities.


The directory publishing business has seen many changes in the way consumers search for local businesses and service providers. Data Publishing has adapted accordingly by incorporating on-line media such as internet yellow pages and local search options with search tools designed for today’s lifestyles. In addition to traditional computer-based technology, the company has built its local search sites to work cooperatively with mobile devices such as Tablets, iPhones, Android phones and BlackBerrys.
