Google Local Services is Expanding

For those of you who don't know Google has launched a new ad category called local services. They, of course, are working to take over the world. For now anyway, it is a good deal for lead generation. They are expanding by service category across the country so not all services are covered in all parts of the country. My business, Smith Brothers Carpet Cleaning is located in Seattle, WA. Ask Google if they are servicing your area.

What they are doing is showing boxed ads at the top of search results with a "Google Guaranteed" symbol. They provide the customer with $2,000 of insurance and guarantee the provider is a solid performer. You pay to be listed only if they call your company and are a valid lead. The price is very attractive and hard to pass up!

I have seen some of these ads from Google and wondered what they were. Thanks for sharing. I'll take a look see.

Google My Business is the best way to generate leads for any local service business especially house cleaning. I generate a ton of business from it every month. I tell you how I do it if interested.

I agree with the map listing but it is only good for the area around where I live. I live in the rural area and all my customers are some 10 miles away. Maps doesn't work for me as I can't get ranked where my customers are. Maybe this Local Listing thing is something I should look at for my duct cleaning business.

GMB allows your organisation to get listed but it's easy to lose spot so to ensure you continue getting leads it's important to be listed organically on the first page.

Thank you for the tip on Google my business. I will definitely look into adding my company to that to get more web traffic. It seems that this internet marketing is ever changing and it's tough to keep up with it all. My small business, Miami laser hair removal, is in a large market with lots of competition so I have to be on top of my marketing strategies in order to succeed.

Is this different to the 'Google Maps' that 1000x people a week always call you about?
