GOOGLE LOCAL SERVICES (GLS)
WHAT IS IT?
GOOGLE GUARANTEE BADGE helps you build a great reputation online.
- Receive leads directly from potential customers as phone calls and messages, which means you only pay for leads, not clicks.
- Business owners and all field technicians must submit background checks to Pinkerton Security AND business owners need to submit their license, insurance and provide a valid credit card. Note: A conviction record will not automatically bar someone from approval.
- Once a business is screened and approved, they will receive a Google guarantee badge which builds trust and ensures Google will cover claims if a customer isn’t satisfied (up to $2,000).
- Claims must be submitted within 30 days of the initial service completion date.
- GLS is not available in all areas. As of July 2018: Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington TX; Little Rock, Pine Bluff AR; Memphis TN; Oklahoma City, Tulsa, OK have this lead generation Google platform. More areas will be added in 2019.

Local services is Google's new product designed to compete with Angie's List, Home Advisor, Amazon Home Services or any other cost per lead advertising option.
The Local Services cards will show at the top of Google's search results, whenever someone searches for a local provider like you. Like Adwords, you pay only for leads from customers who click on your listing,and your listing will only show up when you have money left in your weekly budget.
- It's a cost per lead. Meaning instead of paying for a random click or even a click per phone call, the consumer will go through additional steps to verify they are indeed an interested lead.
- You only pay for leads from Google deems as a viable lead. There are checks and balances in place to ensure you are paying for actual leads.
- If you view a lead as not viable you may dispute the lead cost. Keep in mind you're version of not viable and Google's may not perfectly align, but it's always good to try.
