The Future of Social Media Marketing w/ Gary Vaynerchuk

This is a big week!

My favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, is in two days. Plus, I’m test driving a new recipe for one of my favorite foods — mashed potatoes.

After some extensive research, I learned the perfect mashies are both an art and science. I’ll post pics of my experiment on Instagram and Facebook, so be sure to join me there.

Today, though, I’m serving up a true feast for your mind, heart and business. The one and only Gary Vaynerchuk, author of Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook, is on the show today and let me tell you, this man does not disappoint.

Everything else can be bought, but your caring can’t. @garyvee Click To Tweet

Before we get into today’s episode, a quick share.

Today is really special for me. I’m about to pick up my team for a multi-day retreat near my home in Sag Harbor.

Everyone has traveled out to the east end of NY so we can intentionally plan out the next 12 -18 months in our company.

Do you ever wish you could be more persuasive?

Whether it’s within a business context or your personal life (like getting your family on board with something you want), understanding how to influence others in a genuine and authentic way is an invaluable skill to have in life.

How To Stand Out From The Crowd

Do you ever wonder why some people and brands stand out from the crowd while others remain unknown?

What makes one person or business remarkable, while others all seem so “vanilla” and forgettable?

I’m fascinated with this topic because, on the surface, many people appear to be selling the same kinds of products or services.

But as you know, there are always people and brands that rise above the rest and become leaders of their industry.

If you’ve ever wanted to be one of those people who stands out in a crowd, today’s episode of MarieTV is for you.

Are You Alienating Potential Customers?

Sharing who you are, what you believe, and why you’re in business is vitally important. No doubt about it.

But can being “the real you” alienate potential customers?

For example, does being openly gay turn off prospective fans who are outside of the the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community?

How To Make Your Business Stand Out From The Crowd

Do you ever feel like everyone in your industry is doing the same thing?

Everyone’s newsletters look the same. Everyone’s websites are starting to look the same.

Same. Same. Same.

And bored people rarely buy.

They also don’t run out and tell their friends and family about how wonderfully you bored them.
