One of your Big Ideas! – Social media lets you start the conversation at a deeper level when you are in person. I see this with my facebook circle when we get together for club meetings. Instead of trying to build connection/relationship starting at the weather, we start with what we have been sharing on Facebook. And start to ask informed questions (and are better able to avoid social landmines by what they shared). Oh and don’t forget Gary’s ‘And I am going to outwork everyone’.
Gary has made a name for himself by simply regurgitating what already exists! Please listen to him because he won’t shut up long enough for anyone else to speak.
You always bring it Gary, thanks for all of the AWESOME.
Great insight on using the web to Humanize your Business… It’s about listening and replying — it is working to use the internet to create that small town feel… great insight.. Thanks Gary!
Great interview, even a year later. I so appreciate Gary’s philosophy and how real and genuine he is. His book Crush It was the catalyst and the validation I needed to begin my own business. What he says is common sense + business savvy + good stortytelling. He’s genius. Thank you Gary V!
I loved this interview. It is so true that people are fed up with push marketing. You need to add value by giving free information away that resonates with potential buyers. This also helps to establish you as an expert. On the Internet this is so important now. Gary you are the visionary that truly embraced giving value to your customers. My hats off to you.
You are a very real dude.. love it.
lol i bet they were just staring annoyingly at each other during the commercial break.
Gary is a legend, love his outlook on commerce
now we’re just splitting hairs.
I agree with everything you said. However, you seem to miss the point here; I am not talking about the ongoing growth of a company; I am talking about starting a company from scratch; money plays an important role on a company’s creation. The higher is your initial investment, the bigger your company will get.
In classic Vayner-esque way, I’m going to jump in and defend Gary here. When you have a personal brand that has gotten some traction, mixed with the fact that you know what you are talking about in the social consulting scene (where Vayner media started) makes it easy to leverage to some big companies who were a walking handbook of what not-to-do in social marketing (push push). So in a nutshell, if you did as you claimed and read about Gary, you would know that none of it had to do with money.
Come on! Everything requires an investment! If you really started Vaynermedia with NONE of it ($0), please make a video and tell us how. I have got a lot of ideas but can’t get them to work because of the initial investment
I’ve been watching your videos and “stalking” you for quite a time now and I finally came to realize that it’s all about how much MONEY you invest in your business. MONEY ALONE can get your business to grow… So yeah, it’s all about money.
I’ve been holding a piss for a ridiculously long time because I literally cannot stop watching this. Gary is a boss
Well done on not swearing. I know it must have been tough 😉
A lot of great info. Thanks for posting.
That’s really good to know!!
Struggling to hear this one. Saw Gary at InfusionCon and find his content spectacular!
