  • Take-Aways & How This Resonates (with quotes from The Thank You Economy)1. Calling internet-based services like Facebook and Twitter ‘Social Media’ is misleading."But what we call social media is not media, nor is it even a platform. It is a massive cultural shift that has profoundly affected the way society uses the greatest platform ever invented, the Internet."Twitter is still a confusing phenomenon to most people. But as I explain in The Power of Twitter Told in 3 Tweets, it’s simp [...]


  • i thought i would like this book more than i did, but i think the content and the writing style just killed the experience for me. i don't know much about vaynerchuk, but he writes as if he knows it all and is the big time, which i highly doubt. i'm sure that WineLibrary is a successful company, but it's no Zappos, so his arrogant tone is a lot to swallow. many times, he talks about how the world didn't think social media was going in one direction, but he alone knew it all along. painful to rea [...]


  • Like most books of this type, highly repetitive. I get the feeling when people write books about their ideas, they have to be repetitive just to fill some quota for minimum book size. The point can usually be made in about half or less pages. Yes, I got the point, move on. I'm a big analogy guy. If I pull out more than 1 or 2 to get a point across, people uasually get annoyed. All that being said, I did enjoy the book, was even somewhat inspired by it. It was easy to read and I agreed with about [...]


  • One of my closest friends turned me on to Gary Vaynerchuk and his podcasts. I was such a fan of his bluntness and easy to follow, action based advice that I thought I would check out his books. I didn't go in with any expectations, still being a recent fan and unsure if his voice would translate well to the page.I was ultimately happy with the purchase because I admit it, social media is one thing I am not particularly good at. I am always terrified I'm gonna say the wrong thing and the few peop [...]


  • I should preface this review by stating that while I intended to buy Gary Vaynerchuk's Thank You Economy on audio book, the opportunity came to review this book in exchange for a free copy. Based on what I've learned about, and from, Mr. Vaynerchuk up to now I didn't have to think twice about the opportunity.I am an example of the fruits of the Thank You Economy; I am the easily overlooked customer, a blogger with a scattering of Facebook friends and Twitter followers who now gets to direct the [...]


  • Alas, this book is too little too late. It really should have been written 7 years ago, and should have been a blog post instead of a repetitive "no duh" manifesto for customer engagement via social media. Vaynerchuk brings nothing new to the conversation, repeats the same call to action in almost every page and every paragraph, and for anyone who has read serious books on this topic, he comes across as arrogant to the point of delusion. If you are interested in reading about how social media ha [...]


  • An engaging read about social media driven entrepreneurship. Concept wise it's still current, but some of the companies are already old news.


  • I really liked this thought-provoking and relevant look at how social media is bringing small-town shop values back into business. Vaynerchuck shows that businesses need to build long-term, personal relationships with their customers by caring about them. Social media, because it magnifies word of mouth, is more effective at making emotional connections than broadcast marketing.Vaynerchuck uses stats, case studies, and firsthand experience to make his points and recommend actions. Although he me [...]


  • I think I made a mistake by listening to this book on audible and not reading it on my iPad. Lets start with the actual content. Its solid. Not great. But solid. The vast majority of things included boarder on common sense for the savvy technophile. The author gives solid examples of companies that follow his plan. And thats fine, but I think the more you read, the more it comes off as a "This is how i was successful, its the only way to be" type read. Sometimes its borderline preachy. I think i [...]


  • Gary V. spells it out for us in Thank You Economy!The power of the human connection.The importance of building valuable relationships.The revolution in ways of interacting in today's awesome technology.These have been the forefront of my mind recently after reading one awesome book by mastermind of this new economy, Gary Vaynerchuck. No matter what is said about Gary, I am crazy about him. It takes only watching him on stage once to fall in love and to look to him as a role model and visionary.I [...]


  • Gary V is one of (the few) modern gurus I follow. Why? Because he lives and thrives in Social Media, a wave that (at least) for he next few years all of us, both people and businesses, need to surf.This book carries 2 simple messages:1 - 20th media (i.e. tv, radio, billboards, and paper) are less and less powerful, and, thus, overpriced and underachieving2- businesses must truly care about their customers in order to connect. this connection in out networked age will yield results if you use it [...]


  • Some authors are able to weave what could be a decent essay into a masterbatory 200 page diatribe about social media. Way to go, now you're an "author."


  • This is another example of something that’s happened a lot of late. I was looking forward to reading it but once I actually got round to it, I was left unimpressed. The problem is that while Vaynerchuk was clearly right in what he was saying, it’s a lot less revolutionary now than it was back then.That doesn’t mean that I’m not a fan of his, though. It just means that I think it’s one of his weaker books, and it’s also the one that hasn’t aged well. Don’t get me wrong, the basic [...]


  • The jist – Thank your community.First, Mr. Vaynerchuk owes me a neck massage. While reading, my head bobs like I’m constantly checking to make sure the sky and ground are still there. His message is simple, straight forward and courageous. I say courageous because there are so many executives, business owners and leaders who are afraid. Afraid to lose control of their brand, afraid to change. When you have courage, you have the ability to stand for what is right, regardless of how hard it is [...]


  • This book emphasizes that social media must be a part of your overall marketing strategy. It's not a matter of using Facebook or Twitter to send your message out to the masses in the same way as most companies have using traditional media. Rather, it must be a two-way conversation between you and your customers. In addition, traditional media and social media should be used in a complementary way; it doesn't have to be one or the other.Care - about your customers, about your employees, about you [...]


  • The world is divided up into those who believe people are basically good by nature while the rest believe people are selfish by nature. This book is certainly going to appeal to the first group and challenge the second. Like most successful strategies in business it is something that requires investment in both time and effort to be successful, so too with getting on board with the Thank You Economy.The book certainly has many illustrations and conclusions as to why focusing on helping other is [...]


  • Ironically, or obviously, I was introduced to this guy (entrepreneur who now helps businesses understand the technological shift of our culture and social media's impact on marketing) through a friend on Facebook sharing Vayner's newest video and telling one of his friends to check it out. The share wasn't for me, but it came across my newsfeed and I checked it out. Here we are 10 days later and I've watched more videos, listened to this audiobook (bc my library only had this of his 3 on audio, [...]


  • I recently purchased the audio book “The Thank You Economy” after hearing Justin & Mary speak about it in their program at WPPI and though this book is narrated by what sounds to be a well caffeinated author it was had a lot of great information about how to use social media for your business and how traditional advertisement is slowly declining and why. Gary, the author, also spoke a lot about how we are moving away from the faceless corporation mindset and more towards local small busi [...]


  • Posting this review at 1:50am because I couldn't put this book down. I don't know about you, but hard to put down non-fiction is a rare bird in my world. Mr. Vaynerchuk illustrates the right and wrong ways to use social media using excellent stories, making this book fun and approachable in the vein of Malcom Gladwell's Blink and Outliers. Some of my favorite advice from this book:- Apt analogies between the one on one relationships businesses have with their clients in small towns and the kind [...]


  • The Thank You Economy is a book that really changed how I view the business world. In a world full of competition and metrics the human message by Gary to really take time to care for the end consumer in the social and technological world is really inspiring and refreshing. Giving value back to the consumer is what business today is all about and the only way to actually win in business. The business world is really going through a real landscape shift in the way we communicate and sell, Gary's [...]


  • Much of this book is a heap of anecdotes, trite ideas and "best-practices" lists, each as obvious and useless as the other. Yes social media is a big deal, and more firms should use it to engage their customers. Authenticity is good. Hiring talent is important. Word-of-mouth is becoming relevant again. Also money is nice but doesn't buy happiness, your health is your most precious asset and you can't cross the same river twice.Gary Vaynerchuk is obviously a very gifted entrepreneur and businessm [...]


  • This is 2012 and you better not piss off Gary Vee by questioning our cultural shift towards social media, largely the humanization of brands.The book is a marketer's lesson for using social media. For those who remain unconvinced by the brute force of social media, Gary Vee will shake you up with plenty of examples.The book has a lot of intuitive stuff like why you should care about your customers and employees, but again it serves as a list of the mandatory stuffs to be done in a business. The [...]


  • Nothing new here, at least not if you have been living and breathing social media for the last few years. The only reason I read this book is because it made my boss "see the light". I guess it's because she's a real wine lover. :-)Nice, quick read but if you really want to understand what's going on with social media and the internet as a whole, I recommend you read The Cluetrain Manifesto.The good news is that now our team will be focusing much more on the principles outlined in this book, whi [...]


  • Excellent follow-up to the author's first book (Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion) and specifically deals with using every tool available to a business in order to show that they love and appreciate their customers. Businesses think they've got this covered "we say 'hello and have a nice day' everytime a customer buys from us" and they couldn't be more wrong. Saying "thank you" with style, panache, personality, and (most importantly) a personal touch is the way companies [...]


  • This book is not what I expected. For some reason, the title made me imagine that the author had a theoretical plan for an economy based on gratitude rather than money, like instead of paying with dollars you pay with "Thank Yous." I should've known better.Anyway, the subject was basically how to take you business back to the "good old days" of small-town politeness, using social media. Not a bad idea, I guess. But I don't own a business. Maybe someday I will? I'm certainly not against the idea, [...]


  • This was my first Gary Vee book, and I was very impressed. I've already consumed so much of his content on his website as well, because while I was reading this book I couldn't seem to get enough of his fresh take on entrepreneurship.Its a great book on how to view business relationships like normal relationships, where trust and generous caring are at the core. Why should it be different in B2B or B2C relationships? Gary does a great job of sharing what business relationships are about.I would [...]


  • All books by Gary Vaynerchuk are just made to be listened too. I love how he puts all his energy and passion into reading them himself.This book wasn't all too groundbreaking for me, as a social media enthusiast without commercial bonds. But he is right in the end when he says "This book will self destruct in 4 years, remember how we loved e-mail and marketers ruined it?"Worth checking out!


  • This is a fairly good read for those who want to better understand building an online audience through marketing, especially social media. If you have a background in marketing, it's worth skipping the whole first part since there's nothing new for you in it. I didn't really learn anything new but I highly respect Gary and think he has some great messages for those who are new to online marketing.


  • Gary V clearly lays out where things are headed for companies large and small. If you have customers of any kind this is a must read. Companies that embrace the change will flourish and those that don't recognize what's happening will die. Backed up with solid examples and good story telling this is about as fun as any serious book about businesses can be.


  • Social media this, social media that The book points out the top benefits of using social media and connecting with your customers on a personal level. The importance of social media seems slightly exaggerated, then again, how else to prove a point?
