Adam Houlahan has written another smart, timely and hugely
practical book. Influencer is going to help anyone who is
struggling to be heard amongst the enormous amount of clutter that
we all face. A gem that I read in one sitting and one that I will
certainly pick up time and time again.

www.andrewgriffiths.com.au I binge-read this book. I didn't intend to, but once I started I had to keep going. I have read so many posts, books, etc, that have 'the magic formula' for social-media success. Adam does not promise this, despite his clear success as a LinkedIn influencer. He makes it perfectly clear that LinkedIn is a long-term game. There is stuff in this book about LinkedIn that I had never heard of, even though I have been using the platform for some years. That, plus the nine accelerators that Adam describes, make this the most valuable social-media book I have encountered. I especially appreciated the 'content mix' strategy. I have been a follower of Adam for five years now. Social media in general, and LinkedIn in particular, have changed a lot over that time, but there are still gurus out there peddling the same old stuff. Stick with Adam's advice and you know you will be at the front of the pack in the latest trends.

www.bronwynreid.com.au There's a growing movement towards responsible leadership with a purpose. Making a difference to the lives of others through sharing what you know or what you've learned is a mission being accepted by more and more leaders around the world. It's not about becoming famous, or being known, it's about becoming a positive role model and influencer. And if you want to influence others positively you must read this book on how to do it right. Adam Houlahan is a positive leader in helping others become positive leaders.

www.silverandwise.com.au Adam delivers once again with Influencer. This nine-step guide will help anyone become a LinkedIn expert, create influence and trust, and build relationships with potential clients. The steps are clearly articulated, easy to follow, and filled with nuggets of truth. Once pointed out, some of the content made me slap my forehead with how obvious they were yet I have never implemented them well. Thank you, Adam; this book will be the bible for LinkedIn that I will go back to read again and again.
