Hi, I am Yulia V Smirnova, an online marketer, eCommerce queen (as people in the industry call me)
and a founder of CommerceBrain.com, a consultancy for eCommerce startups launching to market,
or growing their businesses to the next level.
I also teach, collaborate and work with eCommerce entrepreneurs all over the world, practicing their expertise full-time in big eCommerce companies or applying what they learned from me, elsewhere or on their own experiences in their new ventures. Plus, I advise a select few startups in the Bay Area on growth marketing and engagement (mobile app products, consumer-centric marketing and scaling the user base).
Yulia Smirnova is a real find. She is not only personable and easy to work with, but she has invaluable marketing and startup experience. Yulia helped us create precise and easy to use marketing strategy and workflow plans that allowed our team to hit the ground running. She had awesome advice to increase the conversion rate of our blog and website, and she offered real user growth tips that we implemented with excellent results. I would highly recommend her if you want to get the job done.
In 30 days, we got clarity and a plan of action for our vision, the step-by-step go-to-market plan with tons of competitive ecommerce business insights and user acquisition strategies.
I can’t say how good a KGB agent Yulia would have made, coming from the Soviet Union, yet she surely has the makings of a fine investigative reporter, given the exclusiveness of the insights shared at IRCE 2013 event on Facebook for customer acquisition.
Yulia delivered an ecommerce marketing plan at a fairly impossible timeline - 4 weeks. We implemented right away a number of concrete strategies and tools for the Xmas campaign and the ones that would serve us for a longer term.
I started CommerceBrain.com back in 2013, based on the increasing demand of consulting requests, which I got, while I was still working for Walmart.com and eBay and while attending and speaking at industry events on topics of growth marketing, SEO, conversion optimization and eCommerce business. Being a practicing expert in the field allowed me to meet various people easily and share my knowledge and experience, which naturally evolved into consulting projects and soon official launch of CommerceBrain.com.
In 2014, I published a book on eCommerce growth based on working with over 55+ experts in the industry.
I have practiced in the industry myself for over 10 years, as a marketer, product manager, speaker and blogger.
Prior to CommerceBrain.com, I made online experience simpler for customers and profitable for business, while
working for Walmart.com, Shopping.com (an eBay company), Texas Instruments, Microsoft and Intel.
I also used to blog on intelligent marketing insights at Memesponge.com. I received my BA in Marketing
and Advertising Management and MBA from Portland State University, and MA in Foreign Languages Teaching from Sakhalin State University.
