Quick Read:

Continental Warranty focused its search advertising efforts on generating leads through its offer of free quotes for extended-warranty coverage. After three years of running paid search campaigns that averaged 700 Web leads per week from 20,000 keyword phrases, its lead-capture rate had plateaued.

Shawn Vicklund, director of marketing for Continental Warranty, needed to better understand the company's target audience to increase lead volume, lead quality, and conversions.
