Mattress Manufacturer Case Studies Overview

“When I die, I’d like to come back as Julia Rosien. There is so much to admire in Julia. She is a creative, tireless go-getter with tons of marketing and social media savvy—And what a good writer, too. Keep on keeping on, Julia! ”
Barbara Nelles, senior writer, International Sleep Products Association

Growing a community of fans

In 2008, when Julia Rosien joined a bedding/mattress manufacturer as Communications Director, the website was dated and unwieldy and no longer reflected the brand. Although the company retained PR firms, the only links pointing to the site were insubstantial and ineffective.

Manufacturer's online growthJulia immediately began strategizing a re-branded website that included social media, a sleep resource center, a blog and an easy to use ecommerce interface. She directed the development and designs and worked closely with all the teams involved.

Aligning the new website to its core company values of transparency and natural solutions drove all content creation, design and development and the SEO infrastructure.

During the rebuilding of the site, Julia established communities on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn – and launched a blog. Because the company’s digital footprint was light, Julia became the online spokesperson for the company and used her personal networks to grow the communities.

Between 2008 and 2010, the company’s social networks took on a life of their own. When Julia retired as communications director in October 2010, she left a connected and engaged company.
