Ideastreams To Cover The Purple Brand Story

Burke Morley

Purple is the result of over 25 years of innovation and investment in proprietary and patented comfort technologies. Today, Purple ranks #1 in customer satisfaction according to J.D. Power and has successfully expanded its product offerings across seven comfort solution categories including pillows, seat cushions, and bedding.

Their successful marketing strategy took them from a Kickstarter campaign to a public company with close to $300 million in sales in under 3 years. Focusing mainly on digital marketing, their viral video campaigns have been viewed over 4.4 billion times. Evolving from a strictly direct to consumer model, the brand has expanded its market presence to include partnerships with traditional brick and mortar stores.

“Everyone loves a good success story, and there’s a lot to unpack and learn from Purple’s introduction and integration into the mattress industry,” commented Schumacher. “I look forward to diving into Purple’s story with Burke and uncovering the lessons there to be learned and applied.”
