change the way you clean.

In the competitive realm of floor care products, Walmart sought to enhance its offerings in the face of a dominant player, Swiffer. Recognizing the need for innovation and competition, STAINMASTER® stepped up to the challenge. Introducing a full line of Quick Clean Floor Care products, STAINMASTER aimed to carve out its space in the market with a unique selling proposition – the innovative “flexible wand” – offering consumers a compelling reason to switch from established brands.

The primary objectives were twofold: first, to penetrate new households within the Walmart consumer base, and second, to entice existing users of competitor products to switch to STAINMASTER Quick Clean Floor Care. Research indicated a need to disrupt consumer habits and encourage them to reconsider their refill choices, presenting an opportunity for STAINMASTER to capitalize on.

Walmart Launch Strategy:

The campaign rollout was an omnichannel approach:

Paid Media Activation: STAINMASTER strategically deployed paid media across various location-based platforms to amplify brand messaging and product benefits. Targeted advertisements near Walmart stores emphasized the unique selling proposition of the “flexible wand,” positioning STAINMASTER Quick Clean Floor Care as a superior alternative to existing options.

Retail Media Integration: Recognizing the significance of Walmart’s retail environment, STAINMASTER implemented a tailored mix of retail media tactics to reinforce brand presence and drive conversion. From in-store displays to banner ads, every touchpoint was optimized to capture consumer attention and stimulate purchase intent.

Promotional Offers: To incentivize trial and facilitate conversion, STAINMASTER introduced promotional offers and discounts, enticing consumers with value-added propositions. These incentives served as a compelling reason to switch, encouraging consumers to experience the superior performance of STAINMASTER Quick Clean Floor Care firsthand.
