Expand on the last rant: tactics vs. religion, quantity vs. quality, branding vs. numbers. I’d love your thoughts on that answer.

2:04 – Who owns our usernames? Us or the app? What happens if the app came around today and said that they are charging for your username? Would you pay to keep it?
5:31 – If you’re trying to establish a legal firm, real estate sales team, a management consultant practice, are you better suited marketing your brand and your new company or focusing on the people with the skills who can bring value to your clients? Market the firm or the person?
7:13 – Is Twitter making a comeback with their recent addition of GIFs?
8:15 – How do we grow our Snapchat followers?

  1. ఖThere is 僧an easy 德way to 听break into 脑the SNAPCHAT ༽account , ཁa friend ࿎showed me 祉it ྉand I ཥwas very ࿃impressed, I ผwas able วto break 电into the 处account within ࿇five minutes. ༝It is ༦very simple ฮand free! 铁Try snapseet. com

  2. @Garyvee #Clipit 12:0013:00 It doesn't take away from the fact that it is the answer. Too many people are playing checkers when the game is playing chess – Gary, this is pure gold. This needs to be told and re told to everyone watching and listening to you, from the 18-25 year olds especially. This was a beautiful metaphor for short game vs long game, patience vs panic. #Garyvee #Vaynernation

  3. Ok maybe im just salty af but when he goes "sometimes ppl dont understand how companies work" its like he is sayin dude companies dont do stupid shit , wich i agree but then again theres instagram being stupid and making the feed work based on likes or wtvr WAT DO U MEAN IG!? Thats a stupid ass decision wtf SOMEONE PLS tell me how tf that makes it better bc it does not work for me ! Ok ill leave now

  4. Quantity vs quality I feel like is up to you to decide, but there still gotta be a pretty healthy balance. What's for branding vs numbers… Branding is something people believe you are so if you have a great branding- custumers count on you, they trust you and so you can grow bigger and bigger. Numbers thought are just numbers. People can have millions subs on youtube, but not as much views. Its all because not numbers matter, but people who care for things you do. And with good branding you can have both the people and numbers.

  5. I adore listening and learning about PATIENCE in your speeches and/or podcasts. Thank you. It's spread evenly throughout as you explain remembering life prior to social media. I like to listen to how another imagines the future when they are able to remember the past.
    Great job!

  6. to be honest I liked snapchat better when it was just about girls sending sexy pics that they wouldn't text but I see the clear value in it because its how my clients communicate with their kids, just like facebook it was a totally different animal and I can remember being in college with it and once it opened up beyond colleges and then parents got on… trying to watch if things develop in a similar way.
