So, who better to honor as April 2011 HubSpotter of the Month?

April 2011 HubSpotter of the Month: John Marcus III
Title at HubSpot: Ecommerce Inbound Marketing Specialist
Role at HubSpot: I help businesses learn how to get more traffic to their website, convert that traffic into sales, and double down on the stuff that works. I spend my time working with ecommerce companies, and I live/breathe ecommerce.
How long have you been working at HubSpot? Since October, 2009
Favorite Thing About Working at HubSpot: "A Startup Within a Startup" is one of the concepts that makes working at HubSpot so amazing. I also think there are a ton of potential, happy customers sitting out there with ecommerce sites that need HubSpot, and I'm surrounded by teammates who share that vision and help me reach out to (and educate) prospective customers on how we can help them grow their businesses. Without this team, ecommerce at HubSpot simply wouldn't exist. In short, the people are the best thing about HubSpot.
Hidden Talent: I'm actually a slight of hand and card magician.
If you could have one super power, what would it be? Teleportation. The commute to work would be so much better.
What is your best, random bit of advice for inbound marketers out there? Don't do your inbound marketing journey alone! There are LinkedIn groups, blogs, Twitter accounts, webinars, white papers and ebooks out there to help you. Reinventing the wheel will only lead to more work and delayed results. Reach out and ask for help, then help others in return, and you'll find that the community of inbound marketers is your best resource out there.
What are your hobbies outside of HubSpot? Wait, there's life outside of HubSpot?! I'm kidding, I'm kidding. I'm a photographer on the odd weekend (you can find me at various night-club events) and an avid "dive bar" aficionado.
What is your favorite tool in the HubSpot software, and why? Lead Nurturing. Our ecommerce customers are crushing their sales goals when they do ecommerce re-marketing through our Lead Nurturing tool.
