Gary Vaynerchuk Explains: How Marketing Works

watch all of my short motivational films HERE:

MARKETERS RUIN EVERYTHING: Whether it’s radio, television, Facebook, Groupon, Living Social, Snapchat, or even email, once enough attention is being given to a particular platform, marketers come along and ruin the sh*t out of it. It’s just the way it goes, and that’s okay.

See, the thing is, if you want to get people’s attention you need to follow their eyes and ears. What are people interested in today and why? Once marketers can figure out those reasons, it’s their turn to come in and interrupt the experience. They need to find out where the attention is and swoop in. If you don’t get in or don’t play properly (read: natively) within that platform, then you’re going to lose. Period.

The truth is, this has been happening forever. So the question here is, can you move first? How savvy is your radar and how quick can you beat the competition to the market? Move first and extract the most value from the marketplace’s attention, until the rest of the marketers come in and ruin that location. This isn’t anything new and it’s going to continue until attention remains a thing. It’s just a matter of time because no platform is sacred – and that’s okay.

  1. I love this man on every level. He’s the reason I went into Marketing and all my strategies are built up on his shit. <3 Thank you, you amazing human being.

  2. Great video! I think it’s exciting though, because it leads to constant innovation. And if you are at the head of the pack, you can really make the most of those trends, and if you know how what’s coming and get there first every time, you will be massively successful.


  3. Taking marketing to the next level is what its all about Gary. How about for kiosk and farmer’s market vendors?

  4. because we live in a world where once you have the basics of life you have to convince someone they need more by attacking there egos so they can spend there hard earned money on bullshit they don’t need to satisfy someone else’s desire by never having enough.

  5. There is no better way to prepare for your marketing exam than going through Gary’s content for last minute revision. Appreciate it Gary.
