Seth Godin Ask Gary Vee Episode Quickly Becoming #1 Ask Gary Vee Show?

You can learn a lot from YouTube…

You can also learn a lot from the minds of executors like Gary Vaynerchuk and Seth Godin.

You can also learn a lot by watching, listening, and taking key points or themes that hit you in the gut because hey you feel that way too..

And sometimes what you learn is.. great minds don’t think alike they think different.. or do they.. ?

Gary recently had a really good episode probably the best by far of his Ask Gary Vee Showwwwwwwww.. It was with the legendary blogger, writer, author Seth Godin.

Really he is a legend in the marketing space.. Seth had the first email newsletter blog, even if you Google the word “blog” his site comes up 4th, first page of Google.

And by linking to him here might push that a bit higher by the time you read this.

That being said people know with all his past and continued success he doesn’t use Social Media in the capacity Gary does and just automatically tweets out his blog posts.

So a question was posed to Seth Godin about using Social Media which you can learn more about that here.

One thing I noticed is this episode caught FIRE!.. Comments went nuts and every time I would search “gary vaynerchuk” on YouTube it was showing up first page of YouTube for his name ever since the episode aired a month ago.

So I quickly sorted Gary’s channel by “most popular”.. (another way you can learn, just like looking at top free apps in the itunes app store to see Vine is dead and Snapchat is crushing..)

And low and behold in one month it has 65,168 views about to catch and beat his 1,4 year old keynotes at USC & Remax and on it’s way to be the #1 watched and most popular Ask Gary Vee episode passing #26 from a year ago (Am I an Entrepreneur or not) and the current #1 Ask Gary Vee Show thanks to Casey Neistat audience power #128…

So why is that? Here’s what I think…

  • It was the first episode where the guest and Gary Vaynerchuk didn’t agree pretty much throughout
  • Secretly, people agree with Seth Godin and already know “they are the product” on social media and sometimes are not really doing “work” with it or on it
  • Gary interrupted throughout which made it look like he was in an oh shit moment, <the dude I respect thinks my whole business (selling social media) is to sell against people’s attention of wasting time on it..> (Seth said he would walk out…)
  • People respect both Gary & Seth as they have proven results time and time again on executing things their own way
  • Seeing two people with different perspectives that both win in different ways is interesting

Bottom-line, at the end of the video if you really watch what happens is Gary actually agrees in a sense with Seth because he admits as he has time and time again, that he doesn’t read books, doesn’t consume on social media, doesn’t use it like the way Seth describes.

And to Seth’s point people that don’t are usually more successful making an impact in their own way on the world with their body of work and what they do by having a focus on that first.

Ask Gary Vee Show 2015 Recap

At the end of Gary’s last Ask Gary Vee Show for 2015 Gary asks for a recap so here is ours.

As a viewer of every episode of the Ask Gary Vee Show since Gary is the ultimate growth/time hack to keeping people at the forefront of social media here are some of the key points we have seen this year.

Also, we did a 250 question Ask Gary Vee Show recap about a year ago. This time around instead of sharing a list of all the questions which you can get in the upcoming Ask Gary Vee Book we just wanted to point out what we learned from Gary’s Ask Gary Vee Show on YouTube and his new “daily vee”.

  • DNA still matters and being self aware of your DNA will help guide you to love what you do
  • People love the “entertainment” of watching someone hustle
  • Everyone is different and that’s a good thing, we don’t need 10 more Gary Vee’s
  • Attention is everything (it’s part of the “know” in know, like, and trust of Sales 101)
  • People need to hear the same thing over and over before they get it or they don’t really want to execute
  • People are curious and have a craving to learn and be motivated

Let us elaborate…

DNA

If you watch the Ask Gary Vee Show you can learn two things about DNA. First, Gary takes after his Dad on the work-front, Sasha and was built to work 6am-11pm or more vs. the “life balance” that many ask about. And from the looks of it from his empathy standpoint and love for people we can guess he gets that from his Mom.

Secondly, if you watched the shows this year there are a ton of questions around “work life” balance and when does Gary see his family. The DNA of most people are to clock out at 5pm not think about work or not go back to a side hustle when their significant others go to sleep.

Most questions about work life balance are positioned in the way that they don’t have time which Gary points out cutting other crap out like watching Netflix or other areas you can audit your time.

Hustle

The show is perfectly timed with a world of DJ Khaled keys to success Snaps on Snapchat and Instagram’s trending and popular lambo, motivational quotes, and money related photos. Most people love to watch the hustle vs. hustle themselves. Or they like to watch the hustle to get motivated on their own hustle. Alot of the questions asked this year on the Ask Gary Vee Show center around business, life, or social media hustle.

It’s a reason why people like Grant Cardone, Tai Lopez, and Steve Mehr are growing, attention, sales and their audience. The internet gives 24×7 access to executors that make millions and share the way they executed their hustle.

Only one Gary Vaynerchuk

One of the reasons we follow Gary Vaynerchuk is he is at the forefront of social media with executing social media plans for the top brands in the US. And the reason it’s hard to follow anyone else in the social media industry is that most spout Gary’s info, others don’t execute shit, and the other “social media thought leaders” don’t get the attention in this social media space as much as Gary does.

We literally can follow Gary and be 100% ok and up to date with what we need to know in the social media space.

Attention

This year a lot of Gary’s answers about what social media platform to use or how to use it is based on the attention of the consumer. One easy hack is to LOOK around you at your friends, family and in the “top free apps” in the itunes store.

Facebook / Snapchat own mobile while Google still owns the intent of consumers even in the mobile space. Another part of this as we mentioned in the “only one Gary Vaynerchuk” is needed Gary gets attention from the social media space because he is out there keynoting, creating shows/content/books, and constantly in your social media face and space. He has also been right many times for example Facebook buying Instagram for 1 billion and becoming the go to app for 2015.

They don’t want to win

In the video below, Gary said about 30 minutes in that 99% percent of the people don’t really want to execute. Why, do we agree with Gary..?

Again, because if you recap the 2015 show we guarantee you will hear the same questions asked just in a slightly different way over and over and over. If Gary already answered or if people were really hungry why then are the same people asking questions still not executing on the answers?

Don’t believe us… Next time track a question back to user on Twitter and see if they are putting out amazing content, engaging on Twitter, testing Facebook dark posts..ect.. Not all most of the time the people are not taking advantage of this internet revolution and building something for themselves.

Curious

If you listen to the questions asked on the Ask Gary Vee Show some people already know the answer but they are curious what Gary thinks or how he would answer the question. Another part of their curiosity as we discovered is all the time and advice Gary Vaynerchuk gives helping his net worth.

People are always curious about people getting attention and are out their sharing advice and use money or their net worth as a measurement of credibility and if taking the advice is really worth it.
