The GaryVee Audio Experience

28 MINUTES OF FIRE. Another episode of the call-in showwwwwwww and we go hard. In this one we tackle building platforms around influencer marketing, strategies for personal brands, and some tweaks the education system so desperately needs. 


Such an important message in this one and I would love for you guys to take a listen. This was one of the longer exchanges from the new #AGV format where the callers dial in. We went at it for 7-8 minutes and the advice I give is going to be surprising to a lot of you but the underlining message is SO important. Would love to hear what you think <3.

For those that have been following along, you'll know that I do my best to sit down with every new VaynerMedia employee within the first few months they start working for us. Undoubtedly that gets harder and harder as we continue to grow but it's still something that's incredibly important to me to ensure I'm fostering relationships and a place of comfort for our new hires. Even if it's 5 minutes long, it's enough time to plant a seed for a healthy relationship. In this meeting you'll get a feel for how I navigate these convos and the advice I give to those looking to make an impression in their early days at the company. Take a listen and let me know what you think :)

In this one we get SUPER deep and it's not just about business and being a practitioner but it gets emotional and puts me in a place I rarely get to. My meeting here with Jordan from Craft & Commerce might just be one of the most powerful pieces of content we've ever put out. Not only do we discuss developing a business and being a leader but Jordan admits to me something incredibly personal and there's just no words to describe the way it made me feel. Intent is the game my friends and doing the right thing is just always the right thing. Drop me a line and let me know what you think about this one. <3 


Legendary Hip Hop artist ASAP Ferg stopped by the office to talk shop and man was it a great meeting. In this one we cover the current landscape of hip hop, culture, and the chess moves musicians need to be making in order to stay current in today's digital landscape. I love how these meetings are now being documented. It's so important and allows you guys to really get sense for how I navigate conversations and new relationships.

For those looking for specific thoughts and advice about the current digital and marketing landscape, here's a great bite-sized interview for you. It might get lost in the audio so see below for the questions being asked.

Questions: 

We know you’re very high on Snapchat and the potential for marketers.  Are there any best practices you see for those already on the platform?  

You've always been smart about timing and where to put your chips.  What platforms are currently overpriced for performance aka the "banner ads" of platforms?  What areas are still untapped and delivering the most bang for the buck? 

Similarly, any new/emerging platforms you see on the cusp of breaking out?

Live video - Facebook Live, Periscope and others - where have you seen these platforms being used most successfully?  Where does the potential lie to have the most impact for brands?

What’s your current view on podcasts/video podcasts? Where do they fit into a B2B or B2C marketers overall marketing plan?

Another episode of the call-in shooowwwwwwww. We go deep in this one and build a ton of context around the callers' initial questions. Love, love, love this format. Would love to know what you think. Tweet at me or leave a comment on IG at @GaryVee. 


Wieden+Kennedy is one of the largest, privately owned advertising agencies in the world. It was a great honor to speak in front of their London office and please believe me when I say that this was one of my best talks yet. For those that really want to see what my pulse is like when it comes to the advertising world, this is the talk you need to watch. So much insight and fire here. Love, love, love this one.

For those of you here that don't know, my family immigrated to the U.S. from Belarus when I was a young kid. The immigrant hustle is real and this talk will give the insight needed to understand what the struggle is like but also the advantages of being an immigrant. To me, being an immigrant is one of the fundamental reasons why I'm successful. Perspective is everything and this conversation definitely provides the perspective needed in order to make it, whether you're an immigrant or not.

It's incredible to me that this young winner who's been recognized by the White House, the UN, and a number of other prestigious entities has been affected enough by my content and what I put out there to reach out and try to work for me. It's just so incredibly humbling and I hope that that vibe comes through in our discussion. We talk about his future, the importance of self-awareness in his upbringing, social entrepreneurship, and my advice for how he should approach his future. Love the energy coming from this kid.

Love this one because it speaks to the heart of me, Mom & Pop businesses. As most of you know I come from a small family business out in Jersey. I understand the dynamics between needing to make every dollar stretch and the complications that come from working in a family business. In this talk we discuss meritocracy, proving yourself to others, coming up in a family business, and the power of social when it comes to selling local. For those out in Atlanta in early March, come out and see me: http://cbtconferenceandexpo.com/

It is INCREDIBLY difficult to build a successful consumer-facing app but we still live in a world where everyone thinks they can just start one. No matter what you're into in life, if you’re chasing the wrong things you’re going to lose. Period. You need to put your energy against the things that move you forward, not the things that are shiny in the moment. When I was starting my career, being an entrepreneur wasn’t cool. And sure it's cool now and I’m reaping the benefits but that doesn’t mean you can or should try and become an entrepreneur for those reasons.

Here’s an interview I did where we discussed the decline of the print industry and how the companies in those spaces should navigate the obvious shift to digital. The thing is that it’s not just theory, it’s execution that matters. The issue we’re facing these days is that media companies that are selling print don’t have to put the same amount of effort or planning in print as they would in Facebook and it also doesn’t hurt that they’re reaping the benefits from higher margins. And don’t even get me started on the lack of metrics media companies are held to when pushing print campaigns … Listen for more on how the media industry is shifting and how legacy companies that don't adjust are going to die.

Not everyone can be the #1 in their space and that’s OKAY. It all just needs to map back to what you want and what makes you happy. If Basketball is your passion but if you have no shot in being in the NBA, I can assure you’d be far happier making $80K doing something basketball-related than $150K doing something that’s not. Get it? When you get to do what you want to do and that makes you happy, you’ve won.

This was a heated conversation at SXSW between me and my main man, Bonin Bough, C-level exec and host of CNBC’s Cleveland Hustles with LeBron James. At this talk we discuss brands texting consumers, email newsletters, the importance of time, virtual currency, and personalization when it comes to branding. This one gets heated because we butt heads quite a bit but I’m a big believer in that everything needs to be debated and that’s why this one’s a winner.

The fact that my great, great grandchildren are going to be the ones who think I am the first person of our family tree just because of the content I’ve produced is an extremely meaningful thing and it can’t be taken lightly. How many of you can say they were impacted by their great, great grandparents? Thought so. And knowing that, I need to be the barometer for what the Vaynerchuk name carries. We’re all on the record for the rest of time so let’s make sure we act like it when we put ourselves out there.

The legendary JEWEL co-hosts this episode of #AskGaryVee !!! Such an incredible honor getting to jam with Jewel on this episode, but more importantly it was CRAZY to see how in-sync our thoughts are. She has such great energy in this episode and for those that have been staying close to me, you'll really get to see how in-line our thinking is.

This one is all-time fire. I was lucky enough to sit with The Drum in an intimate setting in front of 100 people for what is sure to be one of my best interviews. We cover a lot but at the top of the list is Virtual Reality, the thought of everyone being a media company, and the true worth of a 'personal brand.' Save this one for your longer commutes (or workouts) because you're not going to want to cut this short ;)

This question always trips me up because the truth is that what many perceive as my 'work,' I look at as my free time. I've made mine. I could do anything in the world and what I choose to do is build businesses. It’s my game. It’s my hobby. It’s what I want to do with my time. It's what I love and I implore you to work to do what makes you happy. That’s the whole thesis behind 'Crush It' - building a living based on something you love and are passionate about.

In this clip I sit down with a new hire to discuss their experience with the company so far. For all those looking to lead and build teams, here's some good insight on how to level with your employees and make them feel comfortable enough to open up to you. In this clip we discuss company culture, teams, but also side hustles, the difference between SEO and Social Media in amplifying one's brand, and the value of relationships in one's professional career.

This is a one-on-one discussion I had with a young entrepreneur out in London. He was in the early days of his business trying to scale without having much infrastructure to support his goals. At the end of the day, it just boiled down to understanding his strengths and shortcomings. Some necessary tough love here but one that many young and aspiring entrepreneurs need to here.

Another version of the call-in shooooooooww! This one is short, sweet, and POWERFUL. I'm super excited about this format because it allows me to develop real context with the questions and the people asking them. I get a feel for their energy, we can elaborate and discuss more detail, and all in all it's just a much better cadence. Let me know what you think of this !!

This is the first of a new episode format that I'm going to be releasing more often: business meetings! Unedited from start to beginning! I wanted to give all you listeners a peek into I how conduct meetings and what it's like to be in a strategy meeting with me and my team.  In this first installment of meetings, I sit down and talk with The Eighth, a fairly new retail business attacking the white space they saw in the men's luxury underwear market. We discuss their early days in researching and identifying the market, luxury branding, SEM and SEO approaches, influencer marketing, content creation and the importance of documenting versus creating. For the listeners that have asked in the past, this is some really good insight into how I approach introductory business meetings, evaluate the viability of new businesses, and suggest marketing strategies. Thanks for listening, excited to hear your thoughts and learnings from this one.

WE'RE BACK. On this episode we take call-ins from a live audience and cover everything from from parenting, self-esteem, dealing with confrontation, and taking a seasonal business to a warmer climate. I really enjoy this format because it allows for more context to develop between myself and the audience asking the questions. I'd love to hear what you think because I think this is going to be the new format to the shoooooooow !!
