Awesome Tip: #AskGaryVee Episode 78: Marketing for Musicians, Urinals, & Facebook Video

#QOTD: Will you when, when live streaming wearable technology comes, Truman show your life, or will you consume Truman shows? Give me a breakdown, putting out content vs. consuming content.

1:12 – I just bought an indoor billboard company. How do you feel about advertising in the bathroom?
2:46 – If Apple could build a car, could Mercedes build a smartphone?
4:52 – We are an improv comedy group that performs both at home in NYC and throughout the country. How do we use social media to get input about each town we’ll be performing in ahead of time so that we can create unforgettable shows full of in-the-know references?
5:40 – I posted a video that in one day got 2700 views and 35 shares. Took one year to get the same # of views on YouTube. Should I focus on creating videos for Facebook only?
6:55 – In the quickly-evolving and shapeshifting landscape of the new, digital music industry, where all music is mind-bogglingly easy to download for free, it has never been more important for us artists to change up the way we approach marketing ourselves since music itself isn’t creating income anymore. What advice would Gary Vaynerchuk have for musicians wanting to make their living playing music in the 21st century?


I think I love ads in the bathroom. People think I hate all traditional media, that I’m all about social. But don’t forget I’ve spewed about how I think Super Bowl ads are underpriced. The truth is I just care about the attention graph. Show me where the eyes and ears are, and I’ll show you something I believe in.

I believe that when I go pee-pee, and I see a sign right down there in front of me, there’s a little bit of an issue: we are all taking out our phones now. I did a survey of my staff and everyone says they do it. So, the value of urinal signs and bathroom stall ads has certainly gone down. But do I think that there is still value because people will absolutely notice it. They are better than other outdoor mediums.

BUT the vulnerability to these types of ads, which I am fan of, is phone culture. I didn’t look at my phone while I was peeing three years ago. But now I do.

Gary Vaynerchuk builds businesses. Fresh out of college he took his family wine business and grew it from a $3M to a $60M business in just five years.

  1. The Truman show is exactly how one would build their blockchain profile. But people would be in control of their own content so they could pick and choose what content was broadcast to which group of your friends in which locations of the world.

    Data and content are the new digital assets that we will be selling online.

  2. I wanted to do an ad for 50 dollars, will it not allow that little or is there a way to do this?
    Should I just do a boost post option if my budget is 50? I want to promote a song I released.

  3. Nonsense i never use my phone when i go to pee in the urinals. Its not only un hygenic it is also matter of privacy. Why in the fuck would you use phone when evey one else is peeing in urinals? The pee literally goes into the urinal and splases back to your phone. Cut to , four of you guys checking your phone while eating your sandwich with your bare hand. Gross gross gross… I like your energy but if you can please give advise and opinion that is bit just glit and glam but is thoroughly thought.
