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.

When I’m holed up in my woman cave deeply focused on a project, I sometimes worry that when I come up for air and connect with others . .  I’m annoying people around me with all my business speak.

Which brings me to today’s MarieTV episode.

Do you ever wonder . . . does your marketing annoy people?

More specifically, does your Facebook marketing annoy people? With the ever blurring lines of our business and personal lives, it can be tricky to strike the right balance, especially on Facebook.
