SEO Case Study: A National Insurance Company

Railroad tracks in the woods

The Client

A company providing dental malpractice insurance in three western states and railroad insurance nationally.

The Problem

  • For dental malpractice insurance, the client competed directly with the California, Washington, and Oregon Dental Association’s own malpractice insurance, which had the largest market share in those states.
  • The client’s database of dentists to market to was limited to existing contacts, with no way to reach new prospects. The company website wasn’t ranking organically for keywords related to dental malpractice insurance.
  • The client’s paid search campaign for railroad insurance was generating national leads, but those leads were converting poorly, resulting in a high cost per lead.
  • The client’s website didn’t rank organically for keywords related to railroad insurance.

What We Did

  1. We developed content to achieve top rankings for the client in targeted areas.
  2. We optimized railroad insurance paid advertising campaigns to improve the conversion rate and lower the cost per lead.
