Is the merchant center a viable forum to promote sales for construction related services?

Roof Repairs

Remodeling etc...

I dont see the merchant area when i search for these things.

Hi Bjarne,

I do agree with Tom in that the Merchant Center could be the wrong option for you. If I were you, I would initially focus on text ads in a "Search Network only" AdWords campaign. I actually did run adverts for some construction service providers in the past and such ads were in most cases enough to max out their online opportunities.

Best,

Hi @BJARNE U

 

No, Google Merchant Center is for inventory based stores, not those offering services.

I would suggest looking into another ad based option within AdWords, most suited to your potential customers (text ad's, video ad's etc..)
