Michael has always been available and extremely helpful to me in my step back into the musical arena. His hard work and advice have been instrumental in many opportunities they are coming my way.

You guys have been killing it on your end.

Mike Blatt

Campaign Manager, PledgeMusic

I’ve worked with Michael for the past twelve months and the experience has been a great one! In the time since he’s taken over my social media and web site, the traffic to the site has doubled and in June 2018 we’ve hit an all-time high! He’s dedicated, conscientious, on time and available and ever ready with suggestions for increasing web traffic. What I love the most are the weekly reports which shows you everything you need to know about how your social media and website are performing. During the ten years I spent with my former webmaster-social media guy, everything was a big mystery, he spoke gobbledygook and getting things done was like having a root canal without anesthesia! Michael has been a pleasure!

Gene Simmons

KISS

We got there because we have some amazing people that prop us up, inspire us, and bless us with their talent, energies and most priceless, their friendship! What they all have in common is their passion for music and talent to bring music to others.

Michael's efforts in pushing original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley's Anomaly pre-release sales was definitely part of the reason the album debuted at #27 on the Billboard 200 charts. He did a great marketing push on the album and was a big help.

Frank Munoz

Associate Producer, Anomaly

Michael Brandvold did a great job at our conference, weaving in his experience with KISS to help our audience get a grasp on key marketing tenets.  Michael expertly mixed humor, true stories, and solid principals to connect the dots.  I had several attendees approach me afterwards with kudos for his presentation.

Michael is one of those rare individuals who you can always count on. When anyone in our organization needs something of a marketing nature, Michael is on it — no matter what time of the night or day it is (which is important, given that’s how rock and roll runs). We can always rely on Michael to be honest, straightforward, and thorough. Whether he gets assigned something or does it on his own initiative, we get results. We appreciate Michael’s loyalty and dedication to his job. He’s definitely a team player. Any Band, or organization which employs Michael has made a great choice and they will not be sorry.

Michael was great to work with to get a digital marketing strategy off the ground for a new artist. Michael adjusted marketing plans appropriately to meet needs based on career trajectory and focused on teaching skills that will be useful for years to come. While working with Michael socials and email lists grew tremendously. We look forward to working with him again in the future.

I have just launched a state of art , live concert / production facility in Santa Rosa, California . The venue, House of Rock ,was opened in October of 2016. After many openings as a consultant and owner in other parts of the US and abroad, I'd wished that Michael Brandvold would have been involved with me in my previous endeavors. His attention to the fine points of the operation was and is incomparable . Michael's expertise in Social Media, Secular Marketing, Web Design, All Tech requirements and issues pertaining to ticketing, venue promotions, facilitating all House of Rock performing artists interviews with area radio and print, while corresponding with the artists publicity department, utilizing all free advertising sources and etc. When involved in a turn key of a major venue, things sometimes slip through the cracks. Working with Michael, all the cracks were sealed. It was a productive and fruitful experience working with him.

KISS

Thank you for coming to Oslo. We appreciated your talk very much, and I think your "marketing-lessons-learnt-from-KISS"-stuff is actually very useful. Many companies would do well to find their inner superstars!

Michael Brandvold is that rare breed: a true social media and marketing/PR expert. His hands on experience and real-life experience getting attention for his clients translates into a dynamic and practical presentation. He works, and so does his advice.

David Perry

CEO, David Perry & Associates, Inc.

Just wanted to say what a phenomenal job Mike Brandvold has been doing. Although Twitter needs a college course of its own, Mike is bringing me up to speed on it and has the Twitter world "tweeting" consistently about Cheyenne... as it should be! Just wanted to give credit where it's due.

Jason

Manager , Cheyenne Elliot

It is a pleasure to work with someone that actually knows what they are doing. We have had such a bad experience with various social media ‘experts’ in the past that we were skeptical of any value that Mike could add. Today was a very pleasant surprise!
