Do you have a “Lawn Map” to show?
I love this:
This is a Showcase Lawn Map on the web site of WiseGrass, a small lawncare service provider in central Pennsylvania. It’s an embedded Google Map with user-created content for each of the showcase lawns. Here’s a list of reasons why this is great:
1. Real-life portfolio – potential customers can see this company’s work for themselves, with no need to call and ask for references/referrals
2. Real testimonials = trust – testimonials in any form often include a shadow of doubt. You wonder, Are these real people saying this? Several of the lawns listed on this map have the customer’s name, email address, and/or phone number. That adds to the overall trust.
3. It’s a form of local SEO – user-created content in Google Maps can show up in searches on Google Maps. It doesn’t happen often, but it happens. And even if it doesn’t show up on its own, Google provides a fairly visible “See user-created content” in the Google Maps search results, which might bring some more eyeballs to your user-created maps.
So, if you’re a service provider — lawn care business or something else — do you have a map like this you can create in Google Maps and show on your web site?
