Erik Jacobson, co-founder & CEO

I've spent the last 3 years learning everything there is to know about the power that podcasting can have on your business (as a guest and as a host). I've worked for many successful podcasters like Tim FerrissJason CalacanisJerry Colonna, and more.

Be My Guest was inspired after seeing the results many guests were able to achieve through strategic "Podcast Tours" - proactively seeking out and getting featured on podcasts over many months in order to grow their audience and drive sales. This strategy is incredibly effective, but incredibly time consuming and hard to break in to.

You've done the hard work of developing your product or service, and we built Be My Guest to generate the momentum you need through Podcast Tours.

Luna here! I've been on team Be My Guest ever since my dad and his friend started it in 2016. I've seen these guys from the beginning - the good, the bad, the......ohhhh brb a squirrel!!!

....Okay, I'm back. Dang those things are quick. Where was I? Oh yeah, they told me not to admit this, but in the beginning they didn't really know what they were doing. It's cool though because now they really really do. You'll be happy if you hire them - just like I am every time I see a toy, anything resembling food (including things that are not food),  and when my parents come home and I act like I haven't seen them in 5 years.
