J.J. Hebert is the founder and CEO of the award-winning MindStir Media, a publishing company ranked by many outlets as one of the best book publishers in the United States. On top of running MindStir, J.J. is also massively successful as a Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author. He shares his experiences as a top author on Forbes, Entrepreneur and his own blog — in addition to his social media.

His claim to fame is that he is one of the most followed authors and book publishing professionals in the world. On Instagram alone he recently surpassed 1 million followers. According to mention.com, users with over 1 million Instagram followers represent only 0.18% of total users on Instagram. That amount is surely much smaller when it comes to authors and publishers specifically.

“I started posting on Instagram in 2020 during the pandemic,” J.J. stated. “ I had already amassed a following on Twitter and Facebook at that point, but I wanted to open myself up to other platforms and reach more people. I saw Instagram as a perfect fit.”
