Be My Guest is growing and hiring a full-time Operations Assistant to join our team!
What We Do
Be My Guest is a podcast outreach and booking agency for entrepreneurs, authors, CEO’s, executives, and personal brands (professional YouTubers, bloggers, podcasters, etc.).
We get our clients booked on podcasts that reach their ideal customers and readers so they can get more publicity, grow their audience, and drive sales of their products and services.
Podcasts are arguably the fastest-growing digital media segment. There are 200 million radio listeners in the United States, and 70 million podcast listeners. Over the next 10 years those numbers will continue to converge, until podcasting takes over as the primary audio distribution channel that consumers listen and pay attention to.
