Google Local Service Ads

What are they? How do they work? And how can your business take advantage?

If you’re a local service business, Google has introduced a new way you can reach customers.

Local service ads appear at the top of search results, above the map pack, any search ads, and other search engine results. This represents a new way to reach your target customer that Google is currently testing across the US and Canada.

If your business isn’t currently running local services ads, you’re missing out on quality leads.

Here’s how your business will benefit from our local service package:

Pay-per-lead model

Google’s pay-per-lead model means that you only pay when you acquire a lead! According to Google, a monthly ad spend of $500 could get you 8-24 quality leads per month. That’s potentially a cost per lead of $20.

Low competition (for now) = First mover advantage

Local service ads are still a relatively new product from Google, meaning not every local business is utilizing this channel. Take advantage of this huge opportunity for high visibility in a place where your competitors might not be.
