#AskGaryVee Episode 66: Top Line Revenue and Niche Advertising on Instagram!

– On this episode, I tape the episode tape I record the episode getting off the plane from the super bowl. How do you think it went? (upbeat music) – You ask questions and I answer them. This is The #AskGaryVee Show. ‘Sup, everybody?
This is Gary Vay-ner-chuk and you’re watching
episode number 66 of the #AskGaryVee Show. You might also be listening to it. I need to stop saying watching, I’ve been here for the
last couple episodes. As you could tell, I just got off a plane. My flight was cancelled yesterday from Let’s just tell the whole
story, the bottom line was I said I wasn’t even going
to watch the super bowl. Some of you know that my business partner in VaynerRSE my fund is Steve Ross, the owner
of the Miami Dolphins he invited me to the Super Bowl with him. You know, the owner’s
parties all that stuff you know, I thought it would be good for me to start getting used to it. With what the future holds,
and so I suckered myself made a humongous mistake, promised myself I would never watch the
Patriots in a Super Bowl in case they won. Not only did that happen,
but I ended up being there and then everybody knows since the whole world
watched what unfolded. So, you know, Staphon made,
tried to make me feel a little bit better as I
just got here off the plane. That, you know, at least you
got, you know he was funny he was like, “At least you
got another prediction right.” So, you know, I don’t know
if you can do the recall but you might as well do a little editing DRock I know it’s a little later. Let’s go to the moment where I say that I think that the Patriots are gonna win. 27-12 Patriots, this Sunday,
that is my firm prediction. I equally do not want that to happen but I did say on this show, I wanted them to stick it in
my face and hit rock bottom. It looks like they are trying to execute. But they do cheat. Yup, so rock bottom tastes delicious. It’s what I’ve got right now. Let’s go on to the show. – [Voiceover] David asks, “I’m at the point where I need to hire an office assistant. Sales are great, but I don’t
necessarily have the capital to pull the trigger. Any creative ideas on how to achieve this?” – David, that is a great
question, and it’s really fun to be in the presence of DRock, one of the people who
I think payed forward and is going to feel the huge
dividend on the way back. Meaning, I know a lot of
real hard-core watchers and listeners. I know that you DRock first
at a video for me for free. Was that Clouds and Dirt? That’s epic, let’s link that up. And, you know, that led to a relationship which lead to a full time gig. And now, will be my heart and soul as long as he’ll have me in my video’s world, which, you know, Super Bowl videos of the Jets winning. Amazing, you never know DRock. So, I think one of the things you can do is use your social capital to put out there that
you’re looking for somebody and that this how you can compensate. Obviously, money is the accepted
compensation in our society but I gotta tell you, like
I think that there’s a day and age with the internet
being a middle platform where other things can be used. And so, I don’t know So, obviously you just felt an
edit because DRock screwed up kind of like Pete Carol
at the one yard line by not double checking the card. Because I’m not double checking the card, or the card went weird on you. Okay, well, you messed up.
– [DRock] (mumbling) – Yeah.
– Right, let’s get a DRock messed up alert. I wanna make sure, I
wanna double check this. Just so you know, I do double check so I want to see if it’s pretty, but it better really over the top to rock the DRock messed up alert it better be legit, ’cause it only happens once every 66 episodes. Does anybody think it’s
interesting that it’s episode 66 one more six, the devil, the
Patriots won, Belichick. And so, anyway, going back
not sure where it got cut off but just make sure you edit it weird DRock everybody knows that there was a mistake on your end. I think that there’s a lot of ways to be able to barter out that service. I would literally put on Craig’s list and on your social media, and e-mail blast and take your ten closest
friends and have them blast and say look, I’m looking for this, this is what I can offer. Maybe that’s minimum wage, plus I’ll give you all my
services free for a year or there’s a million ways to hack. I think that we in our modern
society across the globe outside a very rural part pockets in parts of the world that you know, I’m not educated enough to know this. We are really in a flat
out currency exchange game and I’m a big believer
that over the next 50 years because the internet shrinks the middle but there will be an
opportunity as a matter of fact I’m gonna make another
prediction, Staphon, that there will be a major
platform in the next 15 years that is a major top 50 start-up that is infrastructure for us to trade. Like, straight up like
Ebay, Craig’s list, mobile you know centric where it’s just like, you know I have this coat laying around and someone’s like, “Cool,
I’ll mow your lawn.” Like just, there is so
much inefficiency and stuff and services provided I think you should go that
route maybe make a video maybe take the momentum of this answer go really do something the other thing is to
really pound the streets meaning just like know,
no rock unturned right, just ask a lot of people there is a lot of people out there and I think in our
society not paying in cash feels taking advantage I think I’ve consistently
been on the offense in nuances of like border exchange I just think there’s a
lot that can be done maybe maybe you have a collection
of rare baseball cards that somebody wants. Or, you know you’ve 14
pairs of awesome Nikes maybe you could’ve six. You have assets around you,
your time, your services a crap load of stuff in your house trade that for what you need. Or go with do your when
good enough of a name to make a promise that hey I can pay this but I promise you as soon as we get going I’m gonna make you the full time person I think the one thing that I promise you that you need to make sure you do. is a lot of people
promise and don’t deliver and I highly recommend you
don’t make that promise unless you feel like you can deliver and the reason I make so many promises I always say to myself,
even if I fail business wise I’ll go to my own bank
account and close the gap. If you’re willing to go to that level and I don’t know your
personal finances, but anyway, barter, barter, barter. Hey Gary Vaynerchuk this is
Colin AKA Dj Veaux here and I’ve got one question for you What is your advice for musicians looking to establish themselves on Instagram? I know you’ve talked
about it on Twitter before but I love hear your thoughts
on this specific platform Thanks, my man, keep up the great work. I like this young hustler,
there’s something about him. I’ve seen this video before
I’ve seen him interact a little bit there’s something about this kid. I’m just saying it now on the record so I can be writer with
another prediction, Staphon 17 years from today this kid is gonna have some juice. You know, I don’t know
up in the music world but like I just can feel it. Anyway take that and run with
it kid. It’s good momentum. You know, I think it’s
15 second videos, right? Like you just did, I’m
pumped that you made a video and the answer is predicated
on the communication format. I think for Musicians to
over index on Instagram it’s gonna have to be around the music I think the 15 second video format works I think using the right hash tags is the way to be discovered I think reaching out the other Instagram influences in the space matters. So, hitting people up finding, you know, a ton
of Instagram people are putting their e-mails in there. Now a lot of those people are getting compensated financially and, you know, I’ve no
idea of your finances, but I’m going to be prejudice or assume that on the younger
side it’s not unlimited. But again, back to like this maybe this is the theme of the show. There’s probably a ton
of Instagram hoochies a muscle dudes, who’ve
huge, huge followings. That you can hit up and say look, I’ll make you 15 second theme song or something for your world if you can give a little
love to me in return. If I were you and man, am I pissed that the internet wasn’t around when I was 14, 15, 16, 17, 18,19. I mean it was around but, normal people not straight up nerds The internet itself, is
basically 20-years-old. And I know there is some
nerd in the background like, “Oh, actually 1959.” I know (bleep) but I mean
when normal people went on. I really, really think that I think that I would spent
just 17, 18 hours a day hitting up people via
e-mail on Instagram accounts going to explore, finding some people that are popular hitting their accounts seeing that they have
over 100,000 followers and just pounding them
with e-mails saying hey I make music, I’ll make some music for you I’m looking for exposure,
but just we very up front don’t try to trick them
like if we’ll make a song and something interesting can happen. How many beverages does a man need? – You asked me to get coffee. – Oh okay, Mike got me coffee too. Double fisted, what? And so, you know that’s
the route I would go You need as much exposure as possible You’re in an Instagram community
get into the trenches. A lot of those people
who look for money they won’t say yes, but I’m telling you you’ll get four yes’s
for every 800 e-mails and for lot of people listening that’s a lot of time for four yes’s but, the truth is what’s
the alternative, losing? – [Voiceover] Jaime asks,
“I have an Instagram niche account is building followers pretty fast. What do you think about
selling advertisement like a 15 second commercial
to people wanting to reach my audience?” – Jaime, first of all I’m in love
with your Instagram account super pumped for it, you know super niche very Crush It! Like the
culmination of that for me so, feels cool another prediction global production that I drilled. And so, oh, I’m just getting, this is the worst day. First of all, you’ve 585 followers, so won’t gonna be able to get as much money as you
know a walk in the park so, first I would focus
on next six to 12 months. The answer’s yes I do think once every seven
jab, jab, jab, right hook! You know once every seven Instagram videos for you to make a commercial, is super appropriate will work and if you can make it more
of an entertainment commercial like you staring in it think
1950’s and ’60s television I know lot of you youngsters. But the original commercials
are very integrated even into the ’70s. Alpo I think it was,
you know, the dog food was getting dogs to come on the set of the The Today Show and eat the food. You know, and so, you know
that, that’s been around forever and that’s coming back, old is new like Missy Elliot you see
all the kids on social media being like, “Oh, Katy Perry
put this Missy Elliot on. It’s pretty intense to watch all this. Kids need to get educated,
these 13-year-olds I love though, I mean, I
believe it they’re winning they’re right. So, just wanted everybody to know that. Anyway, what’s really interesting to me is that. What I would do for you, I’m gonna, I’m gonna drop, down flip
it and reverse it on you and give you a different answer. You need to basically
google volleyball blogs, volleyball media, volleyball news And you need to e-mail every single person on the first 80 pages of results and tell them what you are doing and seeing if you can get
them to give you exposure. You should absolutely be pounding the volleyball community right now all 917 influencers that
matter in volleyball need to know who you are
and you need to be the one that e-mails then and
says, “Yo, what’s up?” Period. Email every
volleyball manufacturer and be like check out what I’m doing. Guys, most of you were not taking it. You have to understand what
I did with Wine Library TV I took it. I e-mailed everybody, everybody
that was wine blog in 2006 and said “Hey, I’m doing this.” And I get that not everybody is as comfortable self-promoting. And I love when my friends
from Europe are like, “Oh, it’s a very American thing.” And a lot of people who
watching are introverted or don’t have as much hustle. Look, I’m a funny guy,
I’m very competitive I was in super crazy networking events. This weekend and like the
commissioner is there. And Woody Johnson and you know all these actors and actress and VIP’s and hall of famers and
I’m not going up to them. Because I’m so competitive and ego like I’m gonna make them come to me. But there’s a part of
that that’s super wrong. There they are and then I took way that I took that a way
from myself little bit. And I went and did 5 or 6 some of them. Can’t do it completely. But like, you know,
taking those steps as well so like for all my
extrovert, salesman stuff I’ve my own spiel that like
prevents me from taking it. But I’m telling you, behind keyboard, e-mailing, volleyballdaily.com and being like “Hey, it’s me. I’m doing this thing, you should just check it out. I love to do something.” Be smart, position it properly not like, “Hey, look, I’m doing this
Instagram thing about volleyball. You should write about it.” No, that’s right hook. Jab! Like, “Hey, it’s me, I’m doing this thing I love our community. If there’s anything I can
ever do for you let me know.” Jab. So, take it. Oh, India got excited, she said cool. I wasn’t done yet India. Yeah. It was a good one, right? You want to write a
full-fledged, hard core, we’re gonna write a full hard core. Next. – [Voiceover] Austin
asks, “What do you mean when you focus on top line revenue? Is it because you care
more about staying relevant and having attention
because you can cash it on that for more sales?” – Austin, no I talk
about top line revenues, the answer is no. That’s not what I am looking to do. I’m looking to drive top line revenue. I’m doing it in VaynerMedia right now. I’m glad my financial people aren’t here. ‘Cause they’d be like, “I’m not
sure what you’re up to, Gary but it’s super interesting.” So, here’s what I am up to CFO’s. When you drive profit,
if you bring in expenses like I have, when you
have more and more people. You may not make as much money right away because if you are making $12 million, and it cost you $12 million to run your business,
you make zero dollars. And if the year before it cost you, you know, did in 8 million in revenue, but it only cost you $5.3 million in expenses to drive it,
you made $2.7 in profits. So, even though you are doing
a lot more business this year you are not making as much money. But that’s also human
infrastructure and the learnings and the people to be able to for you to do not 14, but 40 million next year, got it? Simple as that nothing else. You just gotta make sure your expenses don’t over go your sales because then you can’t make payroll and you go out of business or you have bumps in the
road and things of that nature. And I as an entrepreneur have had a substantially good career over 20 years of pushing the limit of how
much I can take expenses and cash to be able to grow my business and that is something that
I am always focused on. I think it’s super important,
I know how to do it and it’s the reason
that I know uniquely now have a second business under my belt where I have taken the business from three to over $50 million in revenue within a 5 year window. That is unusual, that is not the norm, and it talks to having a stomach that wants to drive top line. So, that’s not for everybody, and everybody has got to be
safe and wants to make payroll. But a lot of you are not
moving your business faster because of lack of
offense, lack of spending 18 hours a day e-mailing
800 people on Instagram to know about your music stuff. You are lacking offense on
e-mailing every single person talking about volleyball in
the world on the internet and saying “Hey here I am” and
you are lacking by not investing, maybe you have the finances
for that office secretary, who then will allow you
to be on the offense doing other things, instead of
doing some damn paper work. Boy, I tied that together like a champ. – Hi Gary! It’s Alesya from Alesyabags, and I have one important question for you, this year I’ve got a great bag coming out, way higher quality than
anything that I’ve ever done, but, they’re more expensive too, how do I work at that
to my current audience? That’s a good question, you know the weird answer
is maybe you shouldn’t. If the price point of
your new bag is 300 bucks and you’ve been selling 25 dollar bags, you just might not want to
market to your current audiences, because they can’t maybe
afford to buy that bag. Now maybe they can, like you know, I buy 20 dollars or 500
dollars things in same category, so, you know that’s not whole
H&M like you know, like the way fashion got so
interesting to me by the way, little fun fact but any way, I think that it is very important for you to understand, much they give advise
the prior two questions, that you may have to go out,
and find a new audience, and that’s scary that
might not be the, look I’m thinking right know as your watching, I’m curious how you’re watching, leave in the comments, are
you watching like this? or on the laptop, or, really curious how you’re consuming this. Do it. But the truth is you may have to
go out and find a new audience and that’s by putting yourself out there, and engaging with others. I think influences on Instagram
are massively important, so I think you can get away with
giving away some of these bags, to some of those influencers, and getting them on the
cheap at my opinion. So I would definitely
go down the instagarm, influencer path. I think if you give away 5 to 10 bags, to the peole that have
let’s say $250,000 and more, who actually would take the
bag and give that love, I think you have a shot of
being stunned by the ROI, In todays world, so that’s
what I would go out and do, so the answer to your question is, how do you remarket them or
market to them to go up, you let them know about it and, you know five to 15% of
that audiences will grow up, with you financially or aspirationally, but I think you have
to go out and find out, and find and hunt the 85%
of the rest of the audience. Just want to take a couple of minutes before I go in to the question of the day and give some love to the
people that have consistently commenting on the show,
which means a ton to me I thought it was an appropriate time, not asking for the lurkers to come out though this would be a phenomenal episode to leave a comment in the questions or the comment section
on the YouTube, lurkers and the ones that are
listening on the podcast, so let’s start with Chad S really appreciate you, brother. You’re consistent, you’re driving it I’m seeing you, feeling you, thank you. Roberto, I think you’ve been
completely on your offense not only, are you responding consistently to the question of the day but your engagement within the Vayner community, your insanity of intensity
is appreciated, and we have much love for you Roberto. Here at the #AskGaryVee show. Ruth, you’ve been with me long
before the #AskGaryVee Show as somebody, you know its funny like a lot of people by the way
have been telling me to change my icon on twitter, and one
of the reasons I don’t want to is ’cause Ruth your has
been very consistent to its visual right
like I know who is there I see you in all my streams. I really appriciate your commenting you have always been a lot of grace and class to the comment section much mucho love to you. Thomas I love you holding
down the youth culture for the VaynerNation doing a great a job, really tight and consistent
with your comments and, we really just appreciate you, man. I’m really look, I’m
really really flattered by the people are consistently commenting, I think it brings so much as a matter of fact side question day how many of you actually
read the comments, because you getting so much value there so, Thomas you are a big
part of that I appriciate it. Victoria J, I don’t even know
what it is really about you but, every time I see
your comments I smile. Seen them super consistently.
I really appreciate it. You run the gambit of like
just off the cuff stuff and really hard-core answers, I appreciate that as
somebody who loves the off the cuff stuff as well and so I really, really, really appreciate you. All of you, all five of
you, I really appreciate. There’s many more, many
of you Doc and Chef, you’ve gotten your love as well but I am seriously interested. You know, honestly, and
I did this with Wine Library TV and I don’t want to bull (bleep) you I am a feedback animal. I’m a feedback animal. That’s just what it is, like
without the comment section without the question,
the Instagram questions are not coming as fast
as I’d like, so you know, let’s link that up. Without that, without the twitter hashtags it phases away from me, so
like look if you’re listening, if you’re driving to work right now or working out listening to the podcast, or if you’re watching which is very easy ’cause you are on your phone or your laptop or iPad right now, I need more comments
in the comment section. It’s just simple as that. And the people that have
been doing it for me, as a matter of fact that should be the statement for today all of you should go in and thank your favorite one of those five people because it’s those people that are, guys, I will quit this show,
in your face in four seconds I’m plenty fuckin’ busy. I will quit this show. You want me to do it, feed me. I need the fuel and
that’s the interaction that’s the engagement. Question of the day How do you consume this show? This, like this like you know, TV, OTT, like iPad? I need the answer, curious. You keep asking questions,
I’ll keep answering them. – [India] What do you mainly
focus on top line revenue is it because you care more
about staying relevant and having attention because
you can cash in on that for more sales? Oh, are you filming me?
Oh, great. Well, I would have been better prepared. – Put that at the end, beep
and it’s not me this time.

  1. I've listened to all the podcasts on my phone and then started watching on YouTube on my tv, laptop and iPad so pretty much every way possible

  2. Hey David, I'm looking at hiring someone soon, too. Like you, I don't have the cash to do that, but I still have too much work for just me to handle. Initially I was trying to figure out a way to go all-or-nothing, but why? I think I'm going to hire someone part-time (like maybe a university student) to just handle my email / client management, leaving me free to do the selling and the sellable work.

  3. QOTD: I consume both on my phone and computer. In fact, I actually started this episode on my computer, had to leave for a meeting (hustle) then resumed it on my phone this evening when I got home. Hence the double comment.

    Please don't quit the show, Gary!

  4. Cheers for Roberto Blake.  His question on ep. 38 and the question you gave I re-watch weekly.  I'm marinating my fearful brain in it.  Bit by bit, my skin's getting thicker, I'm accomplishing more, and I'm getting happier.  QOTD: YouTube with frequent scrolling back on my desktop.

  5. I mostly consume from my phone while I'm on the road. and I don't have the podcast so I'm on YouTube all day! I really liked Straightfromdeheart's question because it hits almost spot on to where my sports entertainment company is with soccer. we are getting a new blog/video blog idea going and that answer to her question really helped me snap into what we need to be doing. we are going to start doing our blog on the multiple social medias because at the moment we cannot afford a website. but this video is one of the best so far and I have plenty more to go!!

  6. 11:35: and don't forget in 2006 you even emailed and meet with restaurant owners that had great wine programs.

  7. Hello Gary Veeeeee!!!! 6-6 great episode, really good content and the questions were quite inspiring! Thank you so much for sharing! 😀
    At the moment consuming your stuff on my Iphone and PC
    Cheers brother!!!

  15. Phone mainly. And often in the morning when I'm getting my shit together. Gary gets my day going in the right direction.

  16. Love how we react whenever you ask for more coments! I think it would be one of the most disturbing but necessary action!
    I ussually watch it on the phone, cause it allows me to still work on the pc or donother things, listening to you and still be able to see whwnever you make some kind of visual joke!
    Should i like back all other 60something episodes? I've been kind of forgetfull in that matter… I guess you would like us to like them, so i'll do the homework!

  17. I watch on my laptop. Watch the video at the beginning, catch the vibe, the image, and then I play it in the background, providing me fuel to work, and hustle and never stop. I've been dormant for too long. You're the fuel to my fire #GaryVee

  18. i consume this show on my computer. love applying the religion of the content to the world im in

  19. I watch the videos from my laptop, absolutely inspiring, great influencer and astonishing speaker – so much like to watch your videos, keep going with the hard work and hustle!

  20. I've been listening to all episodes in Podcast style on my iPhone. I started from episode 1 about a week ago and am going through all of them. This is my first answer to #QOTD and I'm considering going back and answering all of them.

    The shit I've learned from the first 66 episodes and all 50 #DailyVee's is invaluable.

    Thanks Gary!

  21. I have recognised this awsm stuff recently and I now have started consuming the "content" on daily basis. I start my day with "Gary Vay-ner-chuk" and end with "Gary Vay-ner-chuk.

  23. Hi Gary. I consume mainly through my phone and sine on laptop. Really appreciate the connecting with influencers advice.

  24. I consume this show on my pc I dont really like watching things on my phone but the show gives so much value that I will do it if need be. I also record every answer just in case Gary says something useful to me and I put it in a folder so I can rewatch it when I need it because this is a lot of great info and some of it you will forget

  25. #QOTD: I always consume your content while at work desk, earphones on, YouTube minimized, working silently. Listening to you gets me pumped and makes me focus on my tasks at hand. So thank you!

  26. Watching this on my second computer screen on my desk so that I can consume while trying to work. It diminishes my productivity, however still somehow get what's needed done (Education is my priority)!

  27. QOTD: I usually consume my Gary via my laptop (yes, some of us still use those).

    Normally I'll listen/watch the show on YouTube while I cook/eat!

  28. Hey! I consume it on my laptop/desktop while drawing and sometimes switch apps to see whats happening.
    Have a nice day!

  29. Watching on my laptop. I was watching on my phone in the bathtub earlier. Dope video. The Instagram tips were gold!! Just gearing up for my push for that. I am literally typing as you are calling me a "lurker". Lol. All the best. Akil from Tokyo out!

  30. 99% of the time I watch on my laptop in my apartment bedroom. Either on the bed or the middle of the floor adjacent to the entrance.

  31. Best ep yet 👍🏻 Gave me great insight and inspiration into what i am currently doing. Watching this from my fone as im mostly on the move

  32. Hey Gary! I'm watching this episode on my 40 inch tv through the Youtube app on my Playstation. I'm also no longer a lurker #VAYNERNATION

  33. Hey Gary, great show. I watch the show two years later on a smart tv, which is why I don't usually leave comments. Sorry man, but please don't call me a lurker. That hurts.

  34. I'm late to the game but I'm moving fast to get caught up. So SO glad you didn't quit the show at this point! QOD: using sound cloud during my commutes (and when the boss isn't looking) to completely consume all this content! Just came over to YouTube to leave the comment.

  35. HUGE!!! Thanks for the advice and momentum on the art of bartering in the creative ways you talk about on this AGV show! #the50yroldman

  36. Mainly on the laptop so I can quickly look up a little acronym you through in every now and again. Great episode

  37. QOTD Answer – awsome episode Gary, I work with 2 monitors so I have the utube running on one or if I am using both monitors I put it in my tablet on the side.

  38. QoTD: I switch between my phone (youtube app) if I'm on the move or you tube in a browser on my laptop if I'm at my desk

  39. I was listening exclusively to Grant Cardone….and then I saw 1 of your videos. You're the man and I don't know why but I can't stop listening to you. I used to only listen to music at the Gym and now all I'm doing is binge listening to your youtube content in place of the music. Thank you for being such a genuine and model business and life model. This actually physically pains me to say (or type rather), but…go Jets!

  40. Laptop screen on my desk… that's how I consume. Just about finished breakfast, a quick answer to feed the beast!! ^^ lol
    Keep on rocking' it Gary!!!
    I'm not hustling the way you do yet, but I have this feeling it's coming :p (And I'm not really doing bad either :p, certainly if you account for all the learning)

  41. Yo! I'm your Italian fan here, and truly love your content! Watch u through with my LAPTOP as I always take notes. I listen u very carefully as u r my mentor. So, thanks for the awesome job u do it all the time, and thanks to DRock for the videos, as i'm learning heaps from u, much more than throughout my marketing studies!!

  42. Thank you Gary!! Love your show!! I watch your YouTube videos on my computer and your instagram videos on my phone. I too have a niche account with a surprisingly wide demographic. I would have thought that I would appeal to a very specific demographic, but analytics have proven me wrong.  I've been learning a lot from your advice about Instagram and have been implementing it. I was wondering how best to draw traffic to my YouTube Channel? I'm trying to use appropriate titles and hash tags, but I'm still not showing very much growth there. I know I could be more frequent in my vlog posts and that is something I am working on. Any advice on growing a youtube audience? Thank You Kindly

  43. Hey Gary!! Chris here, I mainly consume your show and other YouTube channels with my cell phone device. A close second consumption is with my laptop. Thanks for all you do! Truly means a lot!

    Also, I've been watching you religiously and I am a huge fan! I have a question that I need help with. But first a very brief background of me lol. Since changing my life around in the past 6 months I have gone from your typical car salesman, who would lie to your face or say whatever just to get a sale. Fast forward to now having self education, constant practice and learning everyday. I now have a vision for where I see myself in the future. I say with confidence, I will build a brand that millions will know about. I have the tools needed to succeed such as fiverr and shopify just to name a couple. I was wondering, If you were you but without all the exposure and fame you now have due to your hard/smart work, what would you start to sell in today's world?

  44. I'm going to be honest with all of you…I've been lurking for awhile. And to be frank again, Gary you made me write this comment right now…haha Anyway, I've been consuming as many videos as I can everyday because I fell in love the very first one. I thank you Gary because every time I want to leave a comment, the user never allows it.

    I started a photography business with my girlfriend and it's very new. Learning every day and look forward to learning more. One thing that you have taught me is to slow down. I have a lot of ideas and ways I want to grow the business, but in reality I need to deal with what is at hand first. Slowing down has made me think more strategically, about my ideas as well as ways to execute them.

    I look forward to the journey our business has and I look forward to watching more videos!

    Much love to everyone and Gary for the content and love!

    ALSO >> watching on computer now, but would mostly likely be on my phone. Alright cool! Thanks for letting me chat with you guys…

    Much love,


  45. yo was going on Garry man yes I was lurking haha from now on I give u respect by saying hello and thank u for the show, much love, Jamie

  46. I'm usually watching on my iphone, but I happen to be working at the desktop and had a question about Instagram Ads, so naturally I searched "instagram ads gary vee" on YouTube. Thanks dude.

  47. I watch/listen you on YouTube. Love your energy and your enthusiasm, especially since you are doing what you love.

  48. I listen slash watch you at least 5 days a week .. not all day but at least one piece of “ content “ a day… and I’m on an iPhone 8 watching you 🤟🏻

  49. QOTD: I consume via my laptop because I have a couple Word documents up 1) to jot down notes on what you say so that I can apply it in my life and 2) another to write down questions I have for you and see if you answer them in another video. I also read the comment section and definitely gain from what your followers say so thanks VaynerNation!

  50. Qoftheday: I consume this show in any way that fits my schedule, podcast,
    YouTube on the phone but never laptop. I can’t recall if your post it on IG TV but I watch your content there as well.

  51. 5:20 I like this theory but I don't see it happening for the same reason there was a lot of friction in bartering.

    What I can see however is people exchanging digital value online through their social media platforms. Having a lot of PETA tokens or NFL tokens tells people how serious you are about your side projects and passions. Social currency.

  52. I consume the show via My phone and or iPad great show i learned a lot the explanation of top Line revenue was a ton of value.

  53. Hey Gary, I consume this content bia Podcast (castbox and spotify) or youtube when I can watch. Yes I know this comment is over 4 years old but I just started watching you
