On the show today is Benjamin Shapiro. Benjamin is the host of The Martech Podcast and the Voices of Search podcast.
I wanted to bring him on because he just joined the HubSpot Podcast Network with his podcast and has one of the top marketing podcasts in the space.
You'll hear about the surprising growth hacks he used at eBay to get distribution into millions of computers, how marketing differs at bootstrapped businesses vs VC-backed startups, and how his podcast gets hundreds of thousands of downloads per month.

Bob Saget's Here For You
BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
Current and classic episodes, featuring compelling true-crime mysteries, powerful documentaries and in-depth investigations.
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
