Tinley Park, IL (PRWEB) August 24, 2014
PulseTV, an e-commerce company earned the overall ranking of 1554 in the Inc. 5000 fastest growing privately held companies in the nation and ranked number 67 for all Illinois companies. Past Inc. 5000 companies include Microsoft and Vizio. PulseTV’s ranking was achieved due to its 274% growth rate from 2010 thru 2013.
PulseTV CEO and Co-founder, Jaffer Ali said, “We did not seek this honor. We were contacted by Inc. Magazine and asked to submit a certified form from our CPA, so we did. The honor is a tribute to our entire staff. It has been quite a journey to get to where we are. While we have been marketing to consumers since the 90s, we iterated to our current model in 2007 and exclusively put our efforts to PulseTV by marrying video and e-commerce in 2011.”
PulseTV has been a pioneer in e-commerce since 1998 when they began using URLs in their television direct response commercials. In 2011, PulseTV began using online video demonstrations featuring its products and experienced a 50% increase in conversions. This led to creating an in-house studio and we have not looked back since.
Ali continued, “It feels like it has taken us over twenty years to become an overnight sensation as the cliché goes, but we believe that our team is poised for many more years of steady growth. Growing and being profitable at the same time is not the usual path of online retailers but that is what we have done. Kudos go to my sister, Anisa Ali and cousin Tom Zegar who co-founded this company with me and are more responsible for assembling the great team we have here that makes it all work.”
PulseTV started out selling videos via television direct response with such hits as Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. It iterated to become an online retailer that sells affordable consumer goods that harnesses the power of email marketing and video. By combining in-house fulfillment, customer service, email deployment, video production, product sourcing and tight inventory controls, PulseTV has become one of the most profitable online retailers in the industry.
