Services Ads

Local Services Ads is a pay-per-lead advertising strategy showcasing approved industries with listings above all other ads on Google.

You need to jump through a few hoops to get approved to use Google Local Services Ads. But your listing will be shown at the very top of Google and focus on your Google reviews. 

There are other pay-per-lead platforms, like Yelp, Angie's List, or Home Advisor. But the problem is those websites give you a lead they have already given to a handful of your local competitors. With Local Services Ads by Google you will receive a phone call from a customer directly and have a recording of the call to determine if they booked an appointment or ended up not working out.
