I was consulting for one my clients JAICO ELECTRICALS. The very first meet was to get leads through seo, however that isn't possible to rank in 2 weeks or one month to get my client leads.
I suggested them to try google local listing to get leads and rank fast in SERP. Little did they know about google local listing. I gave them insight to convince them to start with local listing.
In span of 2 days I was able to rank. This I am talking 3 years back when google used to verify through the business via phone.
Some of the ranking which I was able to bring is shown below.
