Overstock Launches Brand Campaign as Home-Focused Retailer
  • New national “C’mon, Get Comfy” commercial reinforces the intersection of home products, design expertise, and smart value, communicating that Overstock makes dream homes come true for every budget
  • Partnerships kick off with high-profile and home-centric brand ambassadors following Overstock’s 18-month journey to focus entirely on furniture and home furnishings

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSTK), a leading online furniture and home furnishings retailer, today announced its brand campaign reinforcing the company’s focus on quality furniture and home furnishings at smart value. With the company’s refreshed vision, “Making Dream Homes Come True,” the national campaign highlights Overstock’s stylish, on trend, and broad assortment at smart value prices. Overstock helps consumers on every budget attain their dream homes with millions of home-related products available via Overstock.com, the Overstock mobile app, and Overstock.ca,

The campaign’s first commercial opens by encouraging consumers to “get comfy” while showing shoppers exuberantly relaxing on various pieces of furniture throughout their homes. Set to the tune of the Partridge Family theme song “C’mon Get Happy” – and using the exact harpsichord that was used for the original song – the spot associates the experience of creating a dream home with ease, happiness, and relaxation.

“Our measured journey through the global pandemic to become an online furniture and home furnishings retailer took six quarters,” said Overstock CEO Jonathan Johnson. “This new campaign is the next step in our journey. It shows our strong vision for the future as we continue to deliver simple product findability, smart value, and easy delivery and support to our customers. As we better associate our name with new home products, it should dispel any lingering misconception that Overstock sells liquidated or excess merchandise.”

The commercial can be viewed on broadcast/cable TV, streaming TV, YouTube, and social media platforms such as Instagram, TikTok, Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter.

“As the company has evolved over the past few years, this brand campaign is a natural continuation of our vision of becoming a leader in the furniture and home furnishings industry and it showcases our commitment to helping consumers make their dream homes come true,” said Overstock Chief Marketing Officer Angela Hsu.

The launch of the new campaign also kicked off partnerships with six high-profile and home-centric brand ambassadors who have deep expertise in interior design, home renovation, home decorating, and remodeling. Between them, they have approximately 20 million followers across multiple social media platforms, including Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, TikTok, and Twitter.

These ambassadors are a diverse and talented group of home experts who host popular TV shows, own interior design firms, and create home and lifestyle content. This partnership will allow Overstock to reach new audiences and attract more new customers. Throughout the coming year, these design influencers will show consumers how Overstock can bring their dream homes to life through unique content on Overstock.com and their own social media channels.
