The award-winning Roomba® robot vacuum cleaner

iRobot is the leading global consumer robotic vacuum company, designing and building robots that empower people to do more both inside and outside of the home.

Create a scalable media solution to drive awareness in the UK market

Making the decision to change their business to online only, iRobot needed to identify their target audiences segments and begin driving awareness in UK, something the business has done successfully in other countries, primarily with AV media channels. Research showed that the UK was a leading market for adoption of Smart Home products and with Roomba understanding more voice commands than any other robot, Amazon Alexa made a great partner in the UK market.

Finding audiences for whom or whom robotic vacuum cleaning presented a valuable and effective cleaning solution

Using Finecast’s sophisticated targeting capabilities and the Finecast All Screen product, iRobot were able to utilise fully bespoke audience segments for ABC1 Families, aged 30-65.

We were thrilled with the results from the Finecast addressable TV campaign. It has not only increased awareness and consideration of iRobot but also highlighted the compatibility of iRobot and Alexa.”
