Editor's Note

Master social media…

Building a personal brand in the noisy world of social media may seem like an impossible task, but digital marketing expert and entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk gives you the tools and confidence to carry your voice far and wide.

Description

Four-time New York Times bestselling author Gary Vaynerchuk offers new lessons and inspiration drawn from the experiences of dozens of influencers and entrepreneurs who rejected the predictable corporate path in favor of pursuing their dreams by building thriving businesses and extraordinary personal brands.

In his 2009 international bestseller Crush It, Gary insisted that a vibrant personal brand was crucial to entrepreneurial success, In Crushing It!, Gary explains why that's even more true today, offering his unique perspective on what has changed and what principles remain timeless. He also shares stories from other entrepreneurs who have grown wealthier—and not just financially—than they ever imagined possible by following Crush It principles. The secret to their success (and Gary's) has everything to do with their understanding of the social media platforms, and their willingness to do whatever it took to make these tools work to their utmost potential. That's what Crushing It! teaches listeners to do.

In this lively, practical, and inspiring audiobook, Gary dissects every current major social media platform so that anyone, from a plumber to a professional ice skater, will know exactly how to amplify his or her personal brand on each. He offers both theoretical and tactical advice on how to become the biggest thing on old standbys like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, and Snapchat; podcast platforms like Spotify, Soundcloud, iHeartRadio, and iTunes; and other emerging platforms such as Musical.ly. For those with more experience, Crushing It! illuminates some little-known nuances and provides innovative tips and clever tweaks proven to enhance more common tried-and-true strategies.

Crushing It! is a state-of-the-art guide to building your own path to professional and financial success, but it's not about getting rich. It's a blueprint to living life on your own terms.

    This book is an easy enough read, and is a follow up for his earlier, "Crush It"I like the last two chapters a lot, on podcasts and voice-first. They have given me ideas, and so this is a good enough reason for me to like this book!For the rest, I do think he could have gone a bit deeper. I do not like his constant references to how people were influenced by his earlier book, "Crush It". He almost sounds like a messiah, and he is not!

    I am a big fan of Gary Vaynerchuk. I love the way he just tells you how it is in plain English. Sometimes that contains bad words, but really who gives a F&*k.(Kidding :) Anyway it was a really good book for anyone who is thinking about diving into the social media world for their business or anyone who is already in that world, but needs some pointers. I personally have been hitting Youtube hard for the past 2 years, and I am doing ok, but I know I have a lot of room to grow. And honestly, I have been getting into Facebook and Instagram and even twitter, but I know I am not really working them as hard as I should be. He goes into specifics about all the major platforms and gives you some advice about each. There's a lot of real world examples from Creators on different platforms and how they reached their high level of success. All are inspirational, but there are different techniques and methods that can be applied to my own business right now. There are a lot of nuggets in this book, but one that sticks out to me is not just copying and pasting from one platform and putting it on another. you really have to tailor your content for it to be successful. Also, don't sleep on Facebook. I totally agree with him. And personally for me, you can't sleep on Instagram either, especially now that they have IGTV. Amway, I highly recommend. It's a great book!

    Opened my eyes to possibilities to make marketing myself very natural with what i do in everyday life. After the first 5 testimonial stories of other entrepreneurs i did start to get annoyed by them and skip those sections. I may have lost some valuable insights there but i preferred the straight to the point insights in the second part of the audio book.

    Gary brings some of the best moving stories on how people have built their brands around their passion. The struggles and the hustle before their eventual success has been well documented. It brings some sanity and structure to an unconventional part time/ full time gig now known as the social media influencers . Highly recommend reading this book.

    I believed that CRUSH IT! was to be the crown jewel
    In my entrepreneurial library mistakenly opting to the trend of lighting striking ONLY once for high profile people like Gary Vee in the literary space when it comes to REAL IMPACT! I was delightfully WRONG! Tho I’m at the front end of my pursuits and retired from one police career, starting another (which I HATE), & a grandfather of three, I feel THOROUGHLY equipped, educated, and prepared (Cuz motivation is BS FOOLS GOLD) to attack and reach my dreams of leaving a legacy for my GREAT GRANDCHILDREN of hard work, integrity, service & financial and relational SUCCESS due in NO SMALL part what I’ve learned. This book is officially in my annual reading circulation until I can longer see print or hear audio!!!!

    Quick read and the advice Gary offers is not only appropriate for 2018. It also helps me see pillars I was ignoring. Alexia skills will be the next big thing.
