Gary Vaynerchuk Predicting the Future Again with VaynerTalent

Gary Vaynerchuk is at again.. He is predicting people are going to have a content team around them just like he has executed for his personal brand vs. dropping 7k a month on a PR person..

From Gary’s slide on DailyVee 80 he says VaynerTalent is..

We create, produce, and distribute premium content across the media landscape to build personal brands and businesses for emerging and established talent.

He also gives some examples of celebrity personalities, musicians, artists, athletes, CEOs, and visionaries..

This is a another parallel service that ties in to everything Gary Vaynerchuk does and is about. This coincides with launching VaynerMedia, VaynerSports, being an investor in Snapchat, his 60 minutes piece on influencer marketing and his end goal of making all of his assets and the VaynerMACHINE help him turn around a nostalgic brand one day into a Billion Dollar Sale..

He is going to take an old school brand that he can buy on the cheap and then run it through this VaynerMachine to flip it for billies and then buy the Jets.

Gary Vaynerchuk “Mortified” and Says it’s his Fault as CEO of VaynerMedia for Sexist Cannes Party Email Invite

About 13 hours or so in Cannes Cindy Gallop sent out this tweet asking Gary Vaynerchuk what is up with the sexist “attractive females only” invite for VaynerMedia and Thrillist’s party in Cannes.

Gary Vaynerchuk quickly responded via Twitter Video as he has before to put more clarification and context around people questioning him.

He said in his Twitter Video reply to the sexist email that went out that..

“Cindy thank you so much and I’m mortified.. I’m… Listen at the end of the day when you are the CEO any production teams or people you work with you hire it’s your fault so I’m really upset I don’t know the details yet but I’ll find out and I appreciate you calling out the issue. I wish you well, Thank you”

Then after that people still tried calling Gary out and here are his replies on Twitter..

And just recently in the last hour or so another person just Tweeted another invite (which they say is fake in their tweet) with the same “selected female invite only” language and Gary is trying to find the source of that one as you can see here.. And Adweek talks about the incident and his apology here.

On top of that the company that it was tracked to be outsourced to “Igetin.com” site has blocked all traffic from it’s site. We tested with proxies from the US and France and still get “forbidden” no matter what IP is used.

VaynerMedia Jobs Continue to Grow with New Office at Hudson Yards?

Gary Vaynerchuk has grown VaynerMedia a social media agency that follows the attention of consumers on social & mobile platforms from him and his brother AJ Vaynerchuk to over 500 employees + with offices in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chattanooga and NY.

As leaked by some publications a year ago or so and by the Wall Street Journal and Gary Vaynerchuk himself they are taking over 88,000 square feet of the Hudson Yards complex and our guess will use this space to continue to have explosive job growth.

If you know anything about Gary Vaynerchuk you know he has an end goal of buying the NY Jets and you can’t scale social media without people, and having a bigger space for more people will help him reach his goal.

One thing you can’t do is sleep on Gary’s business sense, and what we sense is explosive social media job growth and this will be his own incubator of sorts with the infrastructure of people to support clients and to launch and build their own brands.

If we were betting on the over/under of 600 employees and of  VaynerMedia’s continued job growth with this new office we would take the over all day! VaynerMedia jobs are mostly social media related to that’s a positive for the social media industry!

How To Find Talent When Starting a Social Media Agency Like VaynerMedia

On this episode of Gary Vaynerchuk’s YouTube show Ask Gary Vee the first question asked and answered was the following…

2:25 – If you were to start VaynerMedia today without anyone knowing who you were, how would you find talent?

vaynermedia

Gary’s answer is very insightful. First he says without the leverage in the social media space and proven results to leverage you shouldn’t even be opening a social media agency just because you know how to snapchat and are twenty three.

Secondly, if you really want to create social agency you need to have the skills first but then you need to network (go to meetup.com), join the community and don’t fake the funk.

These are the rest of the questions he answered.

5:57 – In a Snapchat/Instagram world, is video quality (lighting, etc not content) more essential than in years’ past?
8:04 – Some social media experts advocate deleting your old tweets or posts because without context they might not make sense. What do you think?
10:48 – What is the number one characteristic that you want to pass down to your children, and the number one characteristic you hope they don’t get from you?
14:29 – I’m thirteen years old and I just wrote my first book. If you were in my shoes, what would be the first step to promoting the book?
