Gary Vaynerchuk Interview with Mitch Jackson

Gary Vaynerchuk is a highly sought after public speaker, a 5-time New York Times bestselling author, as well as a prolific angel investor with early investments in companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Venmo, and Uber.

He’s also the chairman of VaynerX, a modern-day media and communications holding company and the active CEO of VaynerMedia, a full-service 1,000 employee advertising agency servicing Fortune 100 clients across the company’s 4 locations.

I really enjoyed chatting with Gary about how lawyers and other professionals can use social media to build relationships, show their human side and communicate more effectively. Here’s the written transcript. Enjoy!

[quick note- after this interview and over the next several years, we did a few more live videos together. When my book came out, Gary was kind enough to tweet it out to his audience of 1.8M on Twitter. Now that’s what I call “social equity” 😉

Mitch: Hey, Gary. Thanks for joining us today. I really appreciate it. Before we get into our podcast and talk about professionals communicating on and offline in today’s fast-paced, short attention span world, I want to take you back to Monday night; Piers Morgan on CNN. I found that to be a fascinating dynamic, with respect to how everybody was communicating during the show. We had Coach Stan Van Gundy; big teddy bear, nice guy, easy-going; didn’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings. We have Abby Huntsman, who is very professional in what she had to say. We had Donnie Deutsch, who was the moderator of the group. Then we had Faith Salie, who was shouting out loud to get her point made to everybody else on the panel. What’s your takeaway with how that went down Monday night?

Gary: It was a new format for everybody, and it was the first time we were all together. The marching orders were, “Let’s keep it very fast-paced. Once Donny throws it to somebody, somebody else jump in,” which immediately creates a scenario of; how do you really get in there while somebody’s talking, knowing that the whole segment is 40 minutes? You have to understand the context of the execution of the content. I think everybody played to their personalities. I’m a chameleon, so I kind of responded to what my role was going to be within that group. I’m “Common Sense Sam;” that’s kind of my thing, so I kind of went there. I think everybody’s personalities probably shined through. I think that first of all, off-camera, you couldn’t imagine how good the chemistry was. Even though we may not agree, there was tremendous respect, and actually, admiration alike. [inaudible: 01:42] the third commercial break, I’m like, “We’re a little family already.” It was pretty cool. Continue reading “Gary Vaynerchuk Interview with Mitch Jackson”

When it comes to marketing, branding and sales, telling a good story is important. But you want to know what’s 10X more important?

It’s telling a powerful, emotional, and persuasive story, THAT EMPOWERS PEOPLE TO TAKE A DESIRED ACTION.

    • What are the four steps to success on social media?
    • You’re a content producer and artist. Give yourself permission to shine 24/7.
    • Being strategically transparent and showing your human side isn’t an option. It’s mandatory.

Persuasion in the Courtroom and on Social Media

Good trial lawyers know that giving a great opening statement or, an effective closing argument, involves more than simply sharing the facts and evidence.

They know that to build trust and be persuasive, they must weave the facts and evidence into an interesting and sometimes entertaining story that in the end, adds meaning and value as to why everyone is in the courtroom.

Respecting the time and attention of your jury is critically important. Making sure your presentation is timely, relevant, and strategically transparent is not an option. Doing so builds rapport and trust. Empowering your jury to take that next step, that desired action, will all but guarantee a win for your client.

Creating and sharing content on social media involves the same strategy.

Just like a lawyer in court, your content must be relevant and interesting. It must be timely and in most cases, entertaining.

Strive to create and deliver content in your own unique way and in your own voice. Depending on the circumstances, add the right amount of emotion and in the end, you’ll be creating memorable content that others will talk about, share, and take action on.

I hope you found this approach useful 😉
