Case Study

Helping a New Jersey home improvement contractor generate more leads and grow their business

June 10, 2022

The Challenge

Targeting leads for seasonal services and accurately tracking conversions

Our client is a family-owned-and-operated remodeling and renovation contractor serving homeowners throughout New Jersey. Many of their services, such as windows, siding, and decking, are specifically tied to seasonal demand, and they needed a better way to specifically target leads for these seasonal services.

They also needed some help accurately tracking conversions. Prior to working with 9Sail, they had no way to track phone call and mail-to-email conversions, and they relied on an old Google Ads script that was making it impossible to get an accurate picture of their conversion rates for different campaigns.

Finally, the client wanted what any business wants from its marketing efforts: increased conversions and more leads.

9Sail’s Approach

They started working with 9Sail in August 2021, just before the start of the business’s busiest season. To help the client tackle the marketing challenges they were facing, 9Sail worked diligently to:

  • Set up accurate conversion tracking across all channels
  • Better target specific audiences for different seasonal services
  • Improve SEO rankings for their pages

Overhauling SEO, conversion tracking, and lead targeting

Specifically, we helped them overhaul their existing pages where necessary to rank higher for targeted keyword searches and worked on backlink and guest blog content to drive more traffic to their site. With 9Sail’s help, the client is also implementing job profiles that showcase the work they do, target geographical and service keywords, and push traffic to location pages and branded pages for the products they’re using.

To solve the problem with conversion tracking, 9Sail fully implemented tracking for both call, contact form and email conversions, and also enabled accurate tracking for specific campaigns and audience segments. 

The Results

More leads and increased brand awareness

Within the first year of working with 9Sail, our client has already seen significant results.

With the help of 9Sail’s SEO and lead targeting efforts, the client now brings in 80 to 120 new leads a week—which means they can take on the jobs they’re interested in, not just the ones that come their way. They’ve also seen improvements such as:

  • 4% increase in click-through rate (CTR) on PPC ads  
  • Increased brand awareness that has led to a significant increase in direct search traffic
  • All conversions can be accurately tracked and attributed to specific campaigns, enabling them to further fine-tune their future marketing efforts

Best of all, our client was able to see an upward trend in new lead conversions over the last year, despite the challenges the wider industry was facing.
