Vaynerchuk: “This is the calm before the social media storm”

Chris Sanderson, aka Tech Savvy Lender, pointed me toward this great Gary Vaynerchuk interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” The whole 8+ minutes is worth watching to understand why Vaynerchuk believes we’re in “the calm before the social media storm”–and what that means for you.

  1. I saw this the other day live.

    This discussion truly represents all the reactions to what is going on.

    Gary spews out all this info about what is going on in the social media world.

    Most of the the show regulars feel overwhelmed and don’t even know what questions to ask.

    Mika says things like, “so this will replace Twitter?” and Gary replies no, this is in addition to Twitter which makes everyone feel overwhelmed even more.

    Finally someone asks a question totally unrelated to the subject about wine just to bring it back to their reality.

    Those of us that are early adopters need to realize that we need to speak to the appropriate audience, appropriately. Otherwise we scare people away from tools that they might start using if they understood the value in their lives.

    I can only imagine the backlash our ancestors had against automobiles vs horses years ago was similar.

    Y’know, I have never heard of Gary Vaynerchuk before a week or two ago, when Chris Sanderson said something about it on one of my LinkedIN posts. And now I’m seeing him all over the place. A word-of-mouth economy in action!

    It’s hard for me to watch these kind of shows, like Morning Joe and The View and The Talk and The Look-See and all those panel style shows. Too many people talking at once, and, like @ScLoHo said, a lot of celebrating of one’s own ignorance.

    Gary V.’s frenzied patter and overwhelming energy level aside, it was an interesting talk. I think I need to read this book, because this “Thank You Economy” is what I tried to accomplish at — building relationships, one customer at a time.

    Thanks for the link!

  3. I was pretty sure the lady’s head was going to explode! LOL. Andy- hope you like the book. IMO “Crush It” was better by far than the “Thank You Economy” but you can’t go wrong with either. Thanks for the mention, Anthony. Wasn’t “listening” closely enough to know you had posted I guess!
