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.

I like to think of myself as a die-hard fan who’s managed to sneak his way backstage. I became obsessed with podcasts while working my first job out of college, where I’d sometimes do real work but mostly listen to podcasts and let them do what they do best - teach me something invaluable, shift my perspective and take me on a journey out of Cube Landia.

It was while listening to an episode of The Tim Ferriss Show that everything changed for me:

"Focus on your obsessions. If you're not obsessed, if you don't have that excitement, you're not going to be any better than mediocre in any field."

I know the power of this medium because I’m a case study of the profound impact it can have.
