What are Googles Local Services ads?

Local Services ads allow you to show up at the very top of search results when people are searching for local service-based businesses such as electricians, HVAC professionals, real estate agents, or financial planning, for example.

What makes Local Services ads unique is that you only pay when people contact your business through the ad, whether that’s by calling your location, messaging you, or filling out a contact form.

To qualify for Local Services ads, a business must first pass a screening process that involves license and insurance checks. The specifics of the process varies depending on the business type and where they are located. Once the screening process is complete, the business will receive a Google Guaranteed badge like the one below.

Build Consumer Confidence by Becoming Google Guaranteed

By earning your Google Guarantee badge, you are showing potential customers that they can trust your business. In fact, Google stands behind your company so much that if a customer is dissatisfied with your work after going through Local Services ads to find your business, they can contact Google and Google will refund them the full amount of the services, at no cost to your business.

Drive Visibility and Clicks

Local Services ads will take your listing higher than the best organic SEO strategy or other pay-per-click ads ever could – they allow you to be seen at the very top of the results page.

Only Pay for Quality Leads

The only thing worse than getting a spam lead submission is having to pay for it, and with Local Services ads, Google takes that worry out of your hands. If you happen to receive an invalid lead through your Local Services ads, you can dispute the lead with Google and get credited the cost of the lead. This means that 100% of your Local Services budget will go directly to getting high-quality leads for your business!

Set Your Own Budget

With Local Services ads, there is no minimum spend amount and you can pause or stop your campaign whenever you would like. When setting up your Local Services campaign, Google provides a handy cost-per-lead estimate using your industry and geographical location, which allows for estimating how many leads you can expect to get for your given budget. Even a budget as low as $100 a week can get you 2-5 qualified leads a week, so they can go far in maximizing your marketing dollars.
