28 November, 2016
— Roche Bobois, the leading luxury French furniture brand with eight showrooms in the UK, has today announced the appointment of Maxus’ Performance team to manage its digital performance media in the UK.
The appointment covers all of Roche Bobois’ digital performance media channels, with a focus on search, social, display and shopping campaigns. Maxus Performance will revamp Roche Bobois digital media, aiming to improve brand awareness and its visibility to niche audiences, while also increasing online traffic, engagement and conversions on the website and driving footfall to stores.
The first piece of work will be to audit and set up a revised data tracking and audience-centric targeting solution, before revamping all of its digital properties.
Oliver Wood, managing partner at Maxus Performance, comments: “Roche Bobois is a fantastic luxury brand with a great team. To be appointed as the UK digital performance media agency for a global leader in high-end furniture design is an exciting opportunity for all of us at Maxus. We look forward to helping them successfully reach their niche audiences with a highly targeted and effective campaign.”
Julien Salmon, UK commercial director at Roche Bobois, adds: “We are incredibly pleased to confirm our partnership on digital media with Maxus. From the outset they have impressed us with their performance credentials, their people and their approach to how they will work with us in growing the Roche Bobois brand and ultimately, sales in the key UK market.”
