Grasshopper is everywhere

Episode 61 – Grasshopper / David Hauser

I spoke with David Hauser, Co-Founder and CTO of Grasshopper as well as Jonathan Kay, aka the Ambassador of Buzz, to talk about their business and how they are helping entrepreneurs succeed.

We talked about:

  • Their re-branding process and what they did to ignite that new brand
  • How to engage social media and how to find creative ways to connect with 5000 influential people through Grasshopper 5000 (video), from bloggers on up to President Obama
  • How they are branching out with Grasshopper Labs (twitter) and how they are using that, not only as an outlet to create products and services for entrepreneurs such as Chargify (twitter) – but also to give back through a significant amount of time dedicated to contributing to Open Source software. We’ll be sure to post anything they release to The Changelog.

David also shared something SUPER SECRET! You are hearing about the details of this new venture first hand right here on The Web 2.0 Show! It’s at the very end, so you’ll have to listen to the entire episode to hear about it.

David and his company Grasshopper have an amazing story to tell. I know this is a long interview, but please believe me when I tell you that this episode is by far one of my personal favorites.
