Why do I recommend this book?
I have always loved to share my experiences and opinions whether it was about books, places, food, shopping, products etc. I remember, I was in third year of engineering when I got to know that sharing experience pays a great deal. Since then, I have always dreamed of owning a blog. But at the back of my mind I always had one fear – I did not have much experience with CMS sites neither I am a trained professional in Digital Marketing, how on earth am I ever going to have a blog? I browsed through many freelancing sites to hire a freelancer but they demanded a huge amount of money. Thanks to that one Sunday afternoon when I randomly picked this book in a bookstore.
This book had a line which made me close the book and think for a while, I swear I still remember that line. It said – “LEARN THE TECHNOLOGY THAT YOU NEED”. And I have never been put in my place like this before. Yes! LEARN! This is the only way out. Hence, I launched this blog as a travel blog in January, 2019.
In this book, Gary Vaynerchuk has focused on some key mantras that have to be followed to keep your customers/audiences, coming back.
He has also shared his story of how he used to talk about different wines on YouTube and increased the revenue of his little wine shop. FYI -You can see his videos and read about wines here (Wine Library).
This book has made one thing very loud and clear, that the secret to success in digital world is GOOD QUALITY CONTENT – authentic and non-banal.
Some Social Media tools have also been extensively and elaborately mentioned in this book. He weighed the importance of social media in marketing the content. At the same time, he suggests not to depend on just one social media platform – WHAT IF ONE DAY INSTAGRAM IS NO MORE?
PS : You should definitely read the way he taught to use social media. More about social media is given in his second book – CRUSHING IT, where he has listed out people who followed his first book and are crushing it (living their dreams to be more precise).
The essence of the book is very straight and tells you the grass-root reality of every business which you certainly don’t want to hear – IT NEEDS TIME.
One important thing that is mentioned in the book is that you do not need a very cool idea to build a business, even teaching belly-dancing is a business.
How to make most of this book?
You might want to keep a pen and a diary while reading this book. It has many short and long points that you’ll be needing in the planning and implementation phase.
No, don’t be over-smart and put 100 book marks or think I’ll fold the pages. WRITE THAT SHIT DOWN!!
Above all, one very important message he has stated at start of the book – Love Your Family, Work Super hard, Live Your Passion.
