Publisher's Summary

More than 60 billion online messages are sent on digital platforms every day, and only a select few succeed in the mad scramble for customer attention. 

This means that the question for anyone who wants to gain mass exposure for their transformative content, business, or brand or connect with audiences around the globe is no longer if they should use social media, but how to best take advantage of the numerous different platforms. 

How can you make a significant impact in the digital world and stand out among all the noise? 

Digital strategist and “growth hacker” Brendan Kane has the answer and will show you how - in 30 days or less. A wizard of the social media sphere, Kane has built online platforms for A-listers including Taylor Swift and Rihanna. He’s advised brands such as MTV, Skechers, Vice, and IKEA on how to establish and grow their digital audience and engagement. Kane has spent his career discovering the best tools to turn any no-name into a top influencer simply by speaking into a camera or publishing a popular blog - and now he’ll share his secrets with you. 

In One Million Followers, Kane will teach you how to gain an authentic, dedicated, and diverse online following from scratch; create personal, unique, and valuable content that will engage your core audience; and build a multimedia brand through platforms like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, and LinkedIn. 

Featuring in-depth interviews with celebrities, influencers, and marketing experts, including: 

  • Chris Barton, cofounder and board director of Shazam and former head of Android business development for Google  
  • Ray Chan, CEO and cofounder of 9GAG 
  • Julius Dein, internet personality and magician with nearly 16 million Facebook followers 
  • Mike Jurkovac, Emmy Award winner and creative director of will.i.am and the Black Eyed Peas 
  • Phil Ranta, former COO of Studio71 and VP of network at Fullscreen 
  • Eamonn Carey, managing director at Techstars London 
  • Jonathan Skogmo, founder and CEO of Jukin Media, Inc. 
  • Jon Jashni, founder of Raintree Ventures and former president and chief creative officer of Legendary Entertainment 

One Million Followers is the ultimate guide to building your worldwide brand and unlocking all the benefits social media has to offer. It’s time to stop being a follower and start being a leader.

Increase Your effectiveness on Social Media

This book had so many great ideas to help someone that is struggling with social media and building their audience or just starting out. The fact that it is based on an experience and Brendan is not just giving you tips that should work but is actually telling you what he did and giving you a blueprint to follow is awesome. I like the fact that the author was reading the book, It made it seem that he was talking directly to me like it was a one-on-one coaching session. the only thing that I wished is that he had mixed up some of his stories and told some different ones in hook point because a lot of the stories were recycled from this book. Still, this book is going to and already has changed my social media presence and I am already seeing the benefits of following its advice.

Disapointing

Brendan Kane wrote a book to promote his services, at times during the book he breaks his own advice. The advice he does give is very repetitive and not up to current social media marketing standards. To make things worse he is not a seasoned narrator.
Don't waist your time.

A Very Poor Read

This book took 5 minutes of information and managed to stretch it into 7hrs and 50 minutes of pure pain.

A full summary of useful information:
Post often on social media
Review what works
Do more of what works
Buy Ads

The end.

A lot of advertisement for his own company

I don't want to pay for advertisements, I want to pay for information. So many times the author writes "we have workshops for that" "e-mail me if you're interested in this" ext.... This is the quality I would expect from a free e-book.

A massive infomercial

Wow, if I hear Brendan Kane read out “email me at”, “visit my website at” or “read my blog at”, I’m going to lose it! He says that at least 10 times in each chapter. This is literally the biggest annoyance. He had some good content but it is lost at his self promotion. There are other books with authors that actually what to teach you tactics. The biggest thing you will learn from this book is Brendan’s website URL.

Good but took too long

All of the important information that actually mattered could’ve been said in less than an hour.

ONE MILLION OR ONE, You will be enlightened!

Newly introduced to Brendan Kane’s work, I am hooked.
Regardless of the growth you are looking for, the principals are truly enlightening.
We can too easily make a simple strategy complicated.
Brendan explains very clearly what is possibly if we are willing to put in the work.

Grab Your New Notebook!

Enjoy!!

Zero Value Better Resources for Free on YouTube

Very unimpressed and found zero value in this book. If you are a small creator and looking to grow, this is NOT the book for you. Another “Guru” who’s name you will regret hearing if you buy.

Not Impressed

Nothing special

Who talks about their haters at the beginning of a book? That was a bit kinda weird.

Just an incredible long and annoying Ad

This is not a book, this is an Ad... compare this to an animated flashy web ad from the 90's.
