Gary Vaynerchuk is either loved or hated. Over the past several months he has been very active on LinkedIn. Something he wrote sometime back stayed with me – “The truth is, the way to win on social media is to actually be social. ….The only real way to do this from scratch is to become part of the conversation”.
I have had many informal discussions with my Linkedin connects – how many people you connected with or those who connected with you made a second communication (which is not a pitch)? 90%+ didn’t. So what is the point in connecting? I am not very sure.
Gary gets social media better than most of us. I find him endearing, honest and relentless. Which is the point of his $1.80 strategy. The idea is to leave meaningful comments (your 2cents) in 90 posts a day that matter to you (10 topics and top 9 posts) and do it for long enough to grow your connections and influence. Sounds tough (to do a genuine job by yourself) but if you are building your personal brand it might be worth a try. Any one here gave this idea a shot already?
