UPDATE: We refinanced the previous loan (detailed below) in September 2019 with a traditional bank. We look forward to continuing to bring you great mattress reviews, best mattress picks, sleep information articles, and loads of other great content.
Hello! I’m Logan and I’d like to personally welcome you to the brand new version of Sleepopolis.
Here’s what’s up… On July 25th, 2017 our company acquired Sleepopolis.com (including Sleepopolis.co.uk). To ensure there’s no confusion, Derek Hales and Samantha Hales are no longer associated with Sleepopolis.com. My team and I will be picking up where they left off. While we’ll be taking the site in a new direction, I want to say that I believe they did an amazing job at creating interesting and in-depth sleep-related content that helped push the sleep/mattress industry forward.
So, what do we have in store for Sleepopolis? While we’re still putting the finishing touches on our plan, here’s a bit of what you can expect in the future…
- More comprehensive reviews
- Video reviews with systematic tests that show empirical/objective data
- A full Sleepopolis team dedicated to bringing you the highest quality sleep and mattress content on the web
- More giveaways!
Our number one goal in moving forward with this site is transparency. We want to make sure that you, as the consumer, are aware of how this new version of Sleepopolis will be operated. In an effort to start things off on the right foot, I want to share that the Casper mattress company provided a subsidiary of JAKK Media (our company) with a loan to acquire this site. Though Casper provided debt financing, we are owned entirely independently of Casper and editorial content is completely in our hands.
Another thing to note, in an effort to be as transparent as possible, Sleepopolis.com is owned by a subsidiary of JAKK Media. JAKK Media also owns MattressClarity.com, SlumberSage.com (among other non-sleep related web properties). These two sites will remain separate and their reviews will be conducted completely independently. Why are we keeping them separate? We believe that people looking for the right mattress should be subjected to a wide array of different reviews before making their purchasing decision. If you spend time on both sites, you’ll notice they may cover the same content but in extensively different ways.
We have a passion for a getting a great nights sleep and creating content to help others do the same. We have some really cool things planned and we can’t wait to share them with you :-).
Note – this was updated because the previous “new” editor is no longer with the company. Sorry for the confusion, hopefully the site can help you have less “turnover” than the mattress review world! (Yes, plenty more mattress jokes to come)
Logan is the content director of Sleepopolis, which means he not only reviews new mattresses every week, but also curates all the comparisons, best of pages, and video guides on the site. He takes a straightforward, honest approach to his reviews and endeavors to give viewers an objective look at each new product he tries out. Logan has perfected his method by personally testing over 200 different mattresses, so he’s not only able to discern the overall vibe of a specific bed, but to contextualize its feel within the bed-in-a-box market as a whole.
