Launching BISSELL’s Spring Cleaning Campaign with Queen of Clean, Lynsey Crombie

To drive brand awareness for BISSELL, as the leading floor-clean specialists, we conducted research into the nation’s cleaning habits and enlisted Queen of Clean, Lynsey Crombie, as BISSELL’s research spokesperson to discuss the research findings via a Broadcast Day.

The Brief

To align with a new TV ad launching in March, centered around spring cleaning, Carousel were tasked to plan a campaign focused on spring cleaning messaging, whilst also raising the awareness of BISSELL as the leading floor-clean specialists across broadcast, national and consumer media.

Our Response

Carousel undertook research into the nation’s cleaning habits and using the research findings, Queen of Clean, Lynsey Crombie, was appointed as research spokesperson. Following this, Carousel then organized a Broadcast Day, where Lynsey was able to discuss the research findings in great depth to a plethora of broadcast titles.

To align with the Broadcast Day, a survey release was drafted and issued out to national, consumer and regional media to drive coverage outside of broadcast outlets.

Items of coverage secured off the back of the Broadcast Day, with a combined reach of over 6.9m

"The team at Carousel hit the ground running with our Spring Cleaning campaign, after only being appointed shortly before. The variety of ideas the team came up with and success of implementation created great results across PR and Social Media, with very impressive reach figures for the campaign as well as growth on our social channels. We’re very pleased with what was achieved, and excited for future campaigns with Carousel."
