This advertisement will provide them with your company's information, including your phone number, location, reviews, hours, and more. If a potential lead decides to contact your company, you will be able to review and respond through the Google Local Services Ads App at any time.

Is your company eligible for Google Local Services Ads?

Google Local Services Ads are primarily geared towards home care services. They require each company to pass screening and qualification tests to be eligible to use Google’s advertising tool.

It is required for every company to pass a background check (free of charge and provided by local background check partners) to work with Local Services Ads. Depending on the type of service you provide, it may be required to have specific licensing for the service, including applicable city-county level licensing. It also may be required to submit insurance certifications for companies that have general liability insurance. Only a specific category of services and areas are eligible for Google Local Services Ads.

Google Local Services Ads vs. Google Adwords

Now you may be familiar with Google Adwords, another advertising tool that Google provides. Here’s a list of a few key factors that Adwords works by:

  • PPC (pay-per-click) system
  • Bidding on specific keywords
  • Ad rank based on bid amount, auction-time and aq quality, context of person’s search, and ad rank threshold.

What’s the difference between the two? Well, for starters, Local Services Ads are:

  • PPL (pay-per-lead) system
  • Geared towards home services (ex: plumbing and HVAC)
  • Ad rank based on customer reviews, proximity, response time, and hours

Adwords works with all types of companies and services, however Local Services Ads are directed towards home services. This gives a better chance of making your ad seen because it will become the top options on the search engine. While Adwords charges you once someone clicks your ad, Local Services Ads only charges you once someone makes an effort to reach out to your company. There’s no unnecessary charges here. Also, as long as you are reaching out to your messages on a consistent basis, your reviews are positive, and your availability lines up with the customer, your ad ranking will be one of the first options to click. You don’t have to bid on specific keywords to ensure your company is seen. The advantages for Local Services Ads for your company are high. Use it.
