Hi there. I'm Dharmesh Shah (@dharmesh), founder/CTO of HubSpot. For the past few months, I've been furiously coding away on a fun new project. It's now ready(ish) to say hi to the world. I'd like to introduce you to GrowthBot.
GrowthBot is a chatbot for marketing and sales professionals -- or anyone that's working on growing a business (like startup folks). It connects to a variety of marketing systems (like HubSpot, Google Analytics and others) and gives you quick, easy access to information and services. I built GrowthBot for myself. I hope you find it useful too.
Getting started is easy-breezy and takes 2 seconds. No download or signup required. Just click the button below to send a quick "hello" message to GrowthBot.
Then, head on over to Facebook Messenger to start chatting with the bot. (I use the word "chatting" very loosely -- GrowthBot is not a great conversationalist). It does a specific set of things, but is getting smarter every day (wish I could say the same about me).
Hi there. My name is GrowthBot.
Now you've got access to some great stuff. What kind of great stuff? Just ask...
what can you do?
Here are some sample commands to try: 1. what are top articles on growth hacking? 2. what software does hubspot.com use? 3. show me top posts from moz.com 4. company overview for okta.com 5. grade website recurly.com 6. show me public saas companies using hubspot 7. lookup email firstname.lastname@example.org 8. search hubspot support for integrations 9. what is trending on inbound.org? 10. show me something funny 11. connect my google analytics account 12. how was organic traffic last week? To try one of these out, just enter its number. For more examples, visit http://GrowthBot.org
You can make one of those requests just by typing the number. Go ahead. Give it a whirl.

Great! You just asked GrowthBot to show you a list of technology companies that use HubSpot. You could have asked about other marketing software, like Google Analytics, Marketo, Pardot, etc.
But, let's say you're not interested in what software they use, but what they do. You could try something like this...

Now, ready for some fun? Try this.
Not going to show you the result here -- you'll just have to ask GrowthBot.Your mileage may vary in terms of whether you think what it shows you is funny.
Warning: GrowthBot is still in early beta. You will likely run into issues. It will likely misunderstand you sometimes. It will often just throw its hands up and tell you it can't handle things. But, have fun and if you have any feedback, please email me. My email is dharmesh @ hubsp0t.com. But replace the zero with an "o". I do that to fight the evil bots that scrape the web for email addresses. Not all bots have good intentions.
