Earn Money with Google Business Referral Program

Interested in becoming a Google Business Referral Representative? Google offers yet another way to earn money by helping them add local businesses to Google Maps along with their business information and you can earn up to $10 for each approved, verified referral you submit.

The goal of the Google Business Referral (LBR) Program is to help customers utilize Google maps to find local businesses in their neighbourhood. As a Google Business Referral Representative, you visit the local businesses, collect information, tell them about Google Maps and Google AdWords, snap a few photos, submit the information to them.

Google pays you up to $10 for each approved listing. You earn $2 when a business referral is approved by Google (based on the completeness and quality) plus $8 when an approved business verifies that the information you submitted is accurate by sending a response postcard or verifying their information online.

Google Business Referral Representatives are independent contractors to Google, and not employees (forget the Googler perks). You must be authorized to work as a contractor in the U.S., be at least 18 years of age, and be able to complete an IRS Form W-9. Apply now to become a Google Business Referral Representative.
