3 Key Hacks to Rank Top 3 in Google Maps HVAC Listings

Today I’m going to teach you how to dominate two of the most vital components of Local SEO: your Google Maps ranking, and the total number of reviews you have on Google.  Both offer massive advantages over your competitors in terms of credibility and visibility.  Which of course equates to moreHVAC leads in less time than your competitors. 

The compounding effects of that are massive.  In a relatively short period of time, you could become your area’s top player.  Again, it’s all about doing more in less time.  That’s the secret. 

Joining (and Eventually Leading) Your Local 3 Pack on Google Maps

Google Maps is a massive credibility booster, and enhances your visibility in a huge way.  A lot of people choose an HVAC Contractor based on Google Maps alone, since distance often has quite an impact on convenience (or lack thereof).  It’s undeniable the Local 3 Pack is one of the best places to get leads from Google. 

Here’s My Quick & Easy Way To Join The Local 3 Pack:

  • First, you need a Google Maps listing. If you don ‘t have one, you can get one here:
  • After you’ve acquired your listing, you need to set your primary category to “HVAC contractor”
  • To do that, simply: Sign in to Google My Business at:
  • Select “Manage Location”
  • Select “Edit”
  • Select Pencil Next To Categories
  • Edit Primary Category. Change to HVAC Contractor” and click Apply”

Most Importantly – Dominate Your Competition in Reviews!

Ideally, you should be leading your competition by at least 10-15 reviews.  That’s a fairly safe margin of superiority to maintain.  To do that, we’re going to leverage a technique that should be very familiar to you by now: email templates.  Send this or some variation of it to all your friends, coworkers, and happy customers.  And be sure to download and attach the following document:
