Brendan Kane pioneered one of the first ever influencer campaigns by getting Youtubers with big audiences to interview actors in upcoming films. He’s built online platforms for A-listers including Taylor Swift and Rihanna and advised brands such as MTV, Skechers, Vice and IKEA on how to establish and grow their digital audience and engagement. Then he wondered if the digital marketing techniques he had developed would work for a non-celebrity with zero followers such as himself, so he tried it out and gained 1 million Facebook followers in 30 days.

Hi, I’m Rob!

Hi, I’m Rob! It has been said “You are not what you have learned, but what you’ve overcome.”

I have overcome my share of obstacles in order to architect the life of my dreams and uncover the key to lasting, meaningful success. Growing up in Queens (literally on the wrong side of the tracks), my early years were tumultuous, marked by hardship and violence.
