Awesome Tip: #AskGaryVee Episode 148: Pampering, Politicians & Ad-Blocking

Jets will win. Dolphins are broken from head coach down. Ivory will play, but Decker won’t.
Score: 19 to 14, Jets.

1:45 – I get TONS of emails from politicians begging for 💰. How would you do better if you ran for president?
4:30 – What’s your opinion on incorporating curse words into your actual brand, and not just the content?
7:14 – Hustle is good but often wears us down, do you ever pamper yourself like maybe go in for a pedicure or manicure?
10:40 – You don’t talk much about ad-blocking! With more people doing it, how will small/medium publishers/blogs survive?
13:06 – How does the engagement on YouTube compare to other social platforms? Is the reward worth the effort?

  1. I probably comment on content the most in 2 places – here and facebook. My IG engagement is growing and will probably overtake my youtube engagement (your content not withstanding) as that is where my attention is right now.

  2. Cursing in your actual brand has a (slightly different) real life example:

    Douchebags … A ski bag company from Norway who has created some of the only innovations in Ski and snowboarding luggage for the past 30 years

  3. I loved the show! The Z100 vibe was hilarious! I also dug how you pointed out about 'what about those people that play the other side, too proper, or w/e' fake is fake and most of us can spot it a hundred miles away. Kudos!

  4. Don't dis Rachel for her question. It seemed that #askgaryvee on YouTube was going to go the way of the Dodo Bird, from past episode conversation. Facebook native video would be the replacement? Meh. However Facebook sucks when it comes to reviewing content at the end of the day, playing back previous episodes and actually finding stuff.

    Can I search my facebook feed for "that" awesome video… not if it's buried under 1000 other posts. It's much easier to search keywords on YouTube. I would like to say that "Librarian" is not an obsolete thing. It's now more important than ever to curate information with so much of it available at any one time.

  5. Gary, Gary, Gary. I watched the #askgaryvee episode #34 and to be honest with you it kicked me in the balls. Here's why. You had a young man on there who runs a "personal development" YouTube channel and he asked you "what would you do to build the Gary V. brand if you had to start over with nothing.?"
    Your response knocked some sense into me and some wind out of me. You said that you would do the same thing you did before which was NOTHING. You would keep your mouth shut for the first 10 years and put the work in so you can do stuff like #askgaryvee show and people would actually freakin listen to you.
    I want to encourage people and motivate them and I want that audience to listen, but your right, as a 23 year old, right now I don't have the right to call myself an expert on anything. So my #askgaryvee question is this.

    In a culture that is changing so freakin fast, what categories can someone become an expert in that will even be relevant in 5 years, that would allow them to build "personal brand"?
    Am I even asking the right question #askgaryvee
    Ps. Did I use the #askgaryvee enough…. Im gonna post this question over and over until you answer. Thanks for taking the time to answer it.

  6. My company has started doing more YouTube and the engagement has been really good. Far superior to Facebook and Twitter. First video we put out on Wistia got about 100 comments and then we moved to YouTube and continued to get a lot of comments and engagement. I think it's because video proves someone is there and alive and listening and real.

  7. Great show, Gary. Everybody seemed so happy for some reason.

    I like what you talk about YouTube engagement and also the ad blocker issue. I'm working on a product to sell and aim to get rid of ads on all of my videos altogether. Great stuff as usual!
