I am a small residential electrician, I do service and small installation work. I don't do renovations or new construction, so I don't have pictures of fancy kitchens and bathrooms, I don't do many snazzy chandeliers or things like that. Most of my work is ugly and mechanical, not decorative.

My first question is if pictures actually help my business? I question whether my customer base is looking at the pictures. When I need a plumber or HVAC guy, his pictures are the last thing that I look at.

I also wonder if they help my business from a rankings standpoint? If so, then that would be the reason that I add them.

And finally, I would like your opinion on these pictures. To me they are ugly, but what do you think? Should I put them up on GMB?

I'm sorry to upload so many pictures, I hope this isn't an abuse of the forums space/bandwidth.

I actually like pictures like this and enjoy looking thru them on electrician forums :ROFLMAO:

My concern is if non-electrician potential customers would like them, or if they were too "industrial" and dirty looking for the average homeowner.

So you think I should them and others like them up on GMB?

As a consumer and homeowner, I would look at the photos. I would want to see clean units, neat wiring, neatly organized labeling (as in the last photo). I always do thorough research before hiring a contractor and I would particularly be looking for quality work, which you can garner from local listing photos. Though, I may be slightly biased since I work in the local search industry.
