The Challenge: Increasing Leads, Lowering Costs, and Building a PPC Program
CCA Global, operator of Carpet One Floor and Home, the largest floor covering retailer in North America, and Flooring America, a 550-store retailer, wanted to amplify their marketing program by targeting in-market consumers to generate qualified leads to the Carpet One and Flooring America websites and call centers, increasing national and local brand awareness, while reducing costs.
MediaWhiz worked with Carpet One and Flooring America to increase their rankings for their designated keywords on Google, Yahoo and Bing. Prior to the partnership, four of their five designated keywords did not rank at all.
