The IDA/DASMA Task Force on Industry Reputation has learned of a new resource that may help dealers in their battle against “Bad Bobs” who are violating Google ad policies.
The resource is Google My Business (GMB) Top Contributors. These 12 people are non-Google employees who have demonstrated expertise in helping people who use Google My Business. In many cases, when a Top Contributor reports a Google violation, Google will remove the violator quickly.
There are two ways to use these Top Contributors.
Here is a list of the current 12 Google My Business Top Contributors. The top two (Tom Waddington and Joy Hawkins) have already dealt successfully with violations by garage door companies. We cannot formally endorse those on this list, but we present this list as a service to the industry.
The Task Force on Industry Reputation continues to explore ways to help the industry fight the problem of garage door repair scammers. Feel free to link to their four Consumer Alert videos at www.dooreducation.com/videos.
The IDA Scholarship Foundation has redesigned their website to be cleaner and easier to use. IDA Scholarships are available for all IDA dealer/industry members, their family, employees, and employee families. To learn more go to:
