Local Services Ads
Local Services Ads is a pay-per-lead advertising strategy showcasing approved industries with listings above all other ads on Google.
It would be best if you jumped 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.
How do Local Services Ads work?
Other pay-per-lead platforms, like Yelp, Angie's List, or Home Advisor. But the problem is that those websites give you a lead they already gave 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.
Results on the first page of a Google search get over 90% of the searchers’ clicks and business.
Once your account is created, you will need to undergo an owner background check, show proof of General Liability insurance, and possibly fulfill other requirements according to your industry. Now you can get new quality calls for your services and mark each call as booked or not booked.
