James Caan mentors 1m on LinkedIn
Originally one of only 150 people asked to share his insights on the professional social network, Caan is now ranked 8th on the Global Influencer list, in between Barack Obama and David Cameron.
Within the space of 18 months, Caan’s LinkedIn blog has received more than 6 million combined views, with his business tips being well received by entrepreneurs across the globe. Along with fellow entrepreneur Richard Branson and Prime Minister Cameron, he is also one of only 3 Brits inside the global top 20.
To celebrate this milestone he has now relaunched his highly acclaimed Business Secrets App – which is still free.
Within weeks of launching in 2011, the app stormed to Number 1 in the iTunes chart and went on to become the fastest downloaded Business app of the year. Regularly ranked as a top business app by various publications, it has received over 250,000 downloads and its success, along with the response to his LinkedIn blogs, has convinced Caan of the global appetite for entrepreneurship.
“There’s no doubt that starting a business and becoming your own boss is now an extremely attractive proposition. But the one thing which I think is crucial throughout the process is getting solid advice from people who have been there and done it. Things like managing cash flow effectively or knowing how to get the best out of your recruitment process – these are all critical elements which can sometimes overwhelm entrepreneurs. Having a source of advice that they can refer to at any time will, I hope, have a positive impact on entrepreneurs.”
Business Secrets contains tangible advice to help people start, grow or exit businesses. It focuses on key issues such as raising finance, marketing, growth and expansion. Each section contains video content from Caan and is then broken down into different chapters, combining practical advice with real life anecdotes from 30 years of experience.
Along with additional chapters, the relaunched app will now include all three of Caan’s best-selling books available as an audiobook. The audiobooks have an RRP of £7.99 however the former Dragons’ Den star is making them available on his app for free.
James Caan’s Business Secrets App is now available for download on iTunesand Google Play.
