If you don’t have an actual location and you’re using a service area that’s just a general vicinity on the map, then you can still take pictures of your location except of course it’s probably going to be of a house right.
If you don’t feel comfortable taking pictures of your house, I’ve also been done in the past, taking pictures of plants for random things inside my garage that was ranking at one point when I was living in a garage, and I just named the picture of plant dot jpg or picture of plant in office dot jpg.
I would try to get three photos of the outside of the location three photos of the inside location three photos of team photos and three photos of service photos.
2. The next thing I would do is I’d build high-quality citations hopefully local citations to the Google my business with the correct name address phone number that’s matching what is on your Google my business location.
It’s really important that you have consistency with your name address phone number so if your Google my business says Street but your citation on another site says St. you want to make sure that those match up.
3.The third thing I would do is I’ve come up with a review generation strategy if you guys don’t have a reviews generation strategy I would definitely look into start creating content around your niche, that you’re trying to rank locally for taking that content and then distribute it to people and capture those people that you’re distributing it to whether you’re distributing it to them by ranking organically sharing it on social media using paid traffic and then offer them an upgrade on the post so, for instance, download the free checklist.
