How to Market Your Generac Generator Dealer & Installation Services
Standby generators are in high demand, especially in today’s age where adverse weather events and unreliable power sources plague homeowners and business owners alike.
The challenge for a lot of companies that sell, install, and maintain Generac backup generators is they don’t know where to start in terms of promoting their capabilities to the masses in a meaningful way that not only amplifies brand recall, but directly impacts their bottom line in terms of return-on-investment (ROI). Another key challenge business owners face is being able to track and quantify ROI. That’s where a company like Online Marketing Standard comes into play.
At Online Marketing Standard, we have over 10 years of experience working with electricians and Generac dealers and installers around the USA and Canada and have achieved incredible results by promoting their standby generator services through digital marketing. We’re also proud of the fact we have a 100% client retention rate for all Generac dealers we’ve partnered with over the years.

Digital marketing is nothing new in the world of marketing, but it does require attention to detail and a sound strategy to ensure each targeted channel compliments one another — all the while tracking and monitoring performance and ROI on a per channel basis.
The most successful campaigns we’ve run for generator sales companies include a multi-faceted strategy approach that incorporate the following:
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
SEO for Generac dealers should focus regionally since most dealers and electricians that offer generator sales and installation only work within a specified distance from their warehouse or physical location. Due to proximity limitations, it’s important for companies to focus their coding, content, and backlinking strategy to the areas they serve with the closest major metropolitan market being the primary target for efforts. It’s also a good idea to have a “Areas Served” page that can call out suburban and rural markets for searchers who demand working with a local electrician or Generac Power Pro dealer to assess and install their backup generator.
Local SEO for Generac dealers and electricians should ALWAYS focus a good amount of time and attention on Google My Business (Local/Maps) since Google My Business has shown to perform as well, if not better than traditional organic SEO for generator dealers.
Not only does Local SEO produce incredible branding opportunities in search results including photos, ratings and review scores, but we’ve seen first-hand how being listed in the top three listings converts to higher volume of inbound phone calls and traffic to client sites that translate into quote requests that outpace nearly all other forms of online marketing.
Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Marketing
PPC is an important part of the overall marketing mix for Generac generator dealers since it’s not only the fastest way to buy your way to the top of search engines, but there are cost controls built into platforms such as Google Ads, that allow companies to target regionally and limit their ad budget to a daily threshold. The end result of running an effective PPC campaign is the ability to drive large volumes of targeted traffic to your site at a set cost, which if done correctly, can produce significant ROI due to high margins on generator sales, installs, and ongoing annual maintenance contracts.
Social Media Marketing
Social Media Marketing is a great way to promote your generator dealer services to a vast and eager audience. Platforms such as Facebook and Instagram are the top choices for marketing automatic standby generators since they’re hyper visual and both platforms offer great advertising opportunities with laser-targeted capabilities that are sure to get your brand and its offerings in front of the right people at the right time, especially during weather events or in times of crisis.
When marketing your Generac generator PowerPro business , it’s important to take a holistic approach as covered above to ensure your brand stands out from the rest of the pack regardless of where your target audience is in the buying cycle. By leveraging all of the above in parallel, you’ll do just that — ensure your company stands out from your competitors and bottom-line, get your phones ringing and custom quoting of new installs and service contracts going on a consistent basis.
