Dedicated to customer success since 1977 (okay, maybe only since the mid-2000's), Steve helps eCommerce businesses transform their marketing with HubSpot. An active public speaker, Steve has presented at universities and conferences along the East Coast, including events in Boston, New York City, and Washington, DC.
Haase holds degrees from the University of Rochester's Eastman School of Music (BM), the University of Maryland, College Park (MM), and The Graduate Institute in Milford, CT (MA). Before joining HubSpot, he was a cofounder of the digital marketing agency, ThoughtLead, which specialized in content marketing, creating campaigns for clients such as IBM, Dow Chemical, Haier, and HubSpot.
Prior to ThoughtLead, Steve was a trumpet instrumentalist with the US Navy Band in Washington, DC where he performed at concerts and ceremonies throughout the DC area and around the country, including the inauguration of President Bush and the funeral of President Reagan.
One of my customers, Atlas RFID, an online retailer of RFID equipment, saw the following results (comparing the 5 months prior to implementing HubSpot with the 5 months after):
"You have really helped us move forwards in understanding how to deliver a personal and awesome experience to our customers. A great example is how you helped guide me through the process of setting up segmented email marketing to deliver a really awesome experience for our customers. The results speak for themselves as we’re seeing our engagement rates rising every week!
"I particularly appreciated your style of consulting to help create a solid understanding of the goals and tools to allow me to build off items we discussed during our consulting time. This meant a 1 hour consulting call offered us far more value than just the 1 hour we spent setting up processes and workflows.
"Some of the best results we have achieved have been the resulting conversions from setting up our abandoned cart nurturing. I was really excited to see how effective this tool has been for us adding revenue to the bottom line and making a real difference - we couldn’t have got this up and running without you."
- Pete Hardie, REAL Watersports
"Velsoft has been working with Steve since August and it’s been phenomenal.
"His consulting services are subtle, but I think this is part of his skill-set mastery. When we had our meetings it felt like I was talking with an old friend. As we worked together on Velsoft’s goals, it was like being in a think tank, bouncing ideas around and receiving the feedback and support needed to move forward.
"Personally, I stand behind Hubspot’s philosophy and mindset to making marketing more humanized and delightful. Steve represents these values extremely well, and communicates clearly on how to implement these elements into your marketing efforts.
"If you are looking for a consultant who listens to your challenges, goals and the overall big picture, Steve Haase is who you want because he will pick-up what you’re layin’ down and work with you to achieve your company goals.
"Thank-you, Steve - You are a world-class employee and represent Hubspot in such a positive way!"
- Max Sinnis, Velsoft
