GOOGLE GUARANTEE YOUR BUSINESS
Getting your business guaranteed by Google allows you to run their new “Local Service Ads” that is made specifically for home service businesses.
What are Google Local Services Ads and how do they work?
Local Services By Google is a pay-per-lead advertising platform that Google has started pushing out in different locations across the United States. (Not available in all cities)
Local Services ads help you connect with people who search on Google for the services you offer. Your ads will show up for customers in your area, and you only pay if a customer contacts you directly through the ad.
How do Local Service Ads work?
According to Google FAQ page, Local Services ads make it easy for customers in your area to find and connect directly with your business, and filter results based on the services that you offer. When a customer selects your business, they can simply click your ad and connect with you either by phone or by sending you a direct message request (US only), which you can review on email or with the Local Services app. If a customer used your Local Services ad to hire you and the job is complete, they are then encouraged to leave a review. These verified reviews are posted on your provider profile to encourage other potential customers to book your services with confidence.
