This is Brett’s Story…

Brett Bernstein is the founder and CEO of Gatsby.ai, a startup that helps brands accelerate customer engagement and acquisition by leveraging their customer communities [3]. Gatsby.ai was founded in 2016 with the mission of empowering brands to scale their online communities and turn them into engines of sustainable growth. Gatsby allows brands to turn their Instagram followers into email and SMS subscribers, enabling them to own those relationships and grow engagement across channels.

With Gatsby, Brett has helped many brands successfully build ambassador and influencer programs. Some notable case studies include:

  • Helping swimwear brand Kulani Kinis automate their “Kulani Sun Chasers” brand ambassador program, doubling their Instagram followers to over 585,000 in one year.
  • Enabling apparel brand ORTTU to generate a 16x ROI from their community in the first 3 months of using Gatsby.

Brett is very active in the ecommerce and marketing community. He has been featured on several podcasts to discuss influencer marketing and ecommerce, including his 3rd time here!

He also frequently contributes to the Gatsby blog, writing about topics like marketing promotion ideas and updates to Gatsby’s platform.

Brett is passionate about Gatsby’s mission to empower brands, from entrepreneurs to large enterprises, to streamline customer acquisition, improve retention, and foster online engagement. He believes in core values like respect for all, sustainable growth, and a winning mindset.

With Gatsby’s innovative solutions and integrations with platforms like Klaviyo and Yotpo, Gatsby is well-positioned to continue helping brands succeed in social media and owned marketing channels. His vision is for Gatsby to equip brands with the tools and strategies to transform their customer communities into powerful engines of sustainable growth.

For Shopify Plus stores, Gatsby also offers one-click integration to capture Instagram and TikTok handles post-checkout.

3️⃣   Revolutionizing Audience Engagement: Gatsby is going beyond just list growth by enabling innovative ways for brands to interact with their audience. The new feature allows capturing emails and phone numbers directly through Instagram DMs. By integrating this data, brands can build enriched customer profiles in Klaviyo and other platforms to power personalized marketing strategies and create tailored customer journeys based on social engagement.
