Along with millions of others, I am a fan of Gary Vaynerchuk, because he is a wise guy, with the ability to hit home with his short but pithy quotes.
I think you will agree Gary V has "Authority Status" in the social media and video marketing world.
Currently, Gary V has -
- 1408 videos on YouTube with 623,415 Subscribers to his channel.
- 1,816,900 Facebook Likes on his Facebook Page,
- 1.45 Million Twitter followers,
- Plus a significant following on other social media channels.
So when Gary makes the dramatic statement "99% of people don't market in the year we actually live in", it's worth pausing and thinking about his words.
So let's do just that, ask yourself -
- "Am I marketing in the year we are actually living in?"
- "Am I in the 1% or am I in the 99% who are, by inference, behind the times?"
Gary V " markets in the year we live in", reflected in his YouTube, Facebook and Twitter following and spends much of his day, plugged into his iPhone.
YouTube, Facebook, iPhone and runner up Twitter and other social media platforms - this is "marketing in the year we live in.
If you are in the 99% and want to move to the 1%, the chances are you aren't going to build a following as astronomical as Gary V's, although, in all honesty, there is no reason why you can't.
But if you long to have your message heard, help many more people and achieve massive impact and income, the harsh truth is that today, it ain't gonna happen, unless you build a significant presence on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
On the bright side, you likely have a smartphone and YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are free, so all you have to do is hit that red button to Get It Done!
Next week in my blog, I will show you why video will move you from the blue line to the red line - to quote Wayne Gretzky, "I skate to where the puck will be, not to where it has been".
