In this Gary VaynerchukÂ review, we are going to share the top 25 Gary Vaynerchuk quotes for success in business. Read more…!
The first time I heard of Gary Vaynerchuk was in 2010 by a online fan and support of my previous YouTube channel, The Ahauldri Show. Â My friend Tim was talking to me one night on Skype and he was trying to help me understand about viral branding on YouTube. Â I really didn’t know what he meant since I was a total newbie to video marketing and so he mentioned the name Gary Vaynerchuk and told me to check out his wine channel on YouTube.
That night I did some searching and looked at Gary Vaynerchuck’s videos and noticed how his foul mouth was so natural as if he was from New Jersey just like me and you know what he was. Â How cool was that a mentor I can admire and study that is having success with video marketing and is a internet celebrity. Once I heard his voice and listened to the way he would critique cheap wines it was very entertaining as well as educational.
The very next day I messaged my friend and told him thanks for introducing me to this guy because I want to model after his ideas of interviewing people just like he does critiques with wine and a bucket. Â I will never forget the day around Christmas I recieved a package in the mail to my parents house and it was from my fan and supporter Tim. Â That Christmas gift was so awesome I even recorded my expression as I was opening the box.
Inside was a note from my friend Tim who I never met and he said that he wanted me to have these gifts because he believes I will one day become successful with online marketing my brand as The Ace of Spades on the Ahauldri Show. Â You know what he got me for Christmas? it was CRUSH IT! by Gary Vaynerchuk, a camcorder, and a toy motorcycle collectiable for my son.
Pretty neat how things happen all online so as you can see from my photo I was super psyched!

Gary Vaynerchuk Review | Top 25 Gary Vaynerchuk Quotes
- “Love your family, work super hard, live your passion.”
- “One out of every five page views in the United States is on Facebook.”
- “The incredible brand awareness and bottom-line profits achievable through social media marketing require hustle, heart, sincerity, constant engagement, long-term commitment, and most of all, artful and strategic storytelling.”
- “Google gives preference to its own products, so having a Google+ account influences your search rankings.”
- “Whether youâ€™re an entrepreneur, a small business, or a Fortune 500 company, great marketing is all about telling your story in such a way that it compels people to buy what you are selling. Thatâ€™s a constant. Whatâ€™s always in flux, especially in this noisy, mobile world, is how, when, and where the story gets told, and even who gets to tell all of it.”
- “We love displays and symbols and stuff that quickly and silently tells the world who we are. Better yet, we love visual reminders of who we want to be.”
- “Live your passion. What does that mean, anyway? It means that when you get up for work every morning, every single morning, you are pumped because you get to talk about or work with or do the thing that interests you the most in the world. You donâ€™t live for vacations because you donâ€™t need a break from what youâ€™re doingâ€”working, playing, and relaxing are one and the same. You donâ€™t even pay attention to how many hours youâ€™re working because to you, itâ€™s not really work. Youâ€™re making money, but youâ€™d do whatever it is youâ€™re doing for free.”
- “Your story isnâ€™t powerful enough if all it does is lead the horse to water; it has to inspire the horse to drink, too. On social media, the only story that can achieve that goal is one told with native content.”
- “Through EdgeRank, Facebook weighs likes, comments, and shares, but it currently does not give greater weight to click-throughs or any other action that leads to sales.”
- “Social media is like crackâ€”immediately gratifying and hugely addictive.”
- “adding a social layer to any platform immediately increases its effectiveness.”
- “While companies were getting comfy cozy with the idea of being on social media platforms, social media transcended those platforms, and few businesses have followed.”
- “Publicly, they claim to be thrilled to have the opportunity to engage directly with their customers; privately, they suspect, maybe even fervently hope, that Facebook and its spawn are fads.”
- “There is no logical reason to think that a tire company should be a food critic, but a hundred years ago, Michelin tires started reviewing rural restaurants to encourage people living in the cities to drive farther and wear their tires out more quickly. Guinness created the Guinness Book of World Records to reinforce its brand and give people something to talk about in the pubs. Similarly, I predict that one day a brand like Nike could put out its own sports programming and compete successfully against ESPN, or Amtrak could launch a publication that could stand up to Travel + Leisure.”
- “People are usually astonished when a brand puts in extra effort to make them happy. Thatâ€™s how rarely it happens, and thatâ€™s where you, whether youâ€™re an entrepreneur or a big business, can separate yourself from the rest of the pack. Bigger businesses will be able to jump in on more conversations than others, but volume alone wonâ€™t raise a brandâ€™s engagement levelsâ€”the quality of the conversation will.”
- “A great storyteller is keenly attuned to his audience; he knows when to slow down for maximum suspense and when to speed up for comic effect. He can sense when heâ€™s losing peopleâ€™s interest and can make adjustments to his tone or even to the story itself to recapture their attention.”
- “Being cool has nothing to do with age; it has to do with how solid your identity is.”
- 99.5 percent of the people that walk around and say they are a social media expert or guru are clowns. We are going to live through a devastating social media bubble.
- “I think the acquisition of consumers might be on the verge of being mapped. The battlefield is going to be retention and lifetime value.”
- “When we launched the WineLibrary website in 1996, I didn’t even own a computer yet. I just understood that there was an opportunity here to market in a different way.”
- “People are chasing cash, not happiness. When you chase money, you’re going to lose. You’re just going to. Even if you get the money, you’re not going to be happy.”
- “Do you know how many companies have wanted me to do an energy drink for them because I named my book ‘Crush It!’? It might be fun one day, but right now I think it would undermine the personal brand I’ve built.”
- “I definitely think there’s some way to understand how people emotionally feel about somebody, but I don’t think data collects it. They’re not going to click your bit.ly link or click your TweetMeme retweet every time.”
- “The first thing I ever invested in was Twitter. Blaine Cook, former CTO, was leaving the company and asked me if I wanted to buy his stock.”
- “I want to sit with 80- and 90-year-old people more than anyone. They have played this game before. Not one of them has told me, ‘I wish I had more money.”
