BlogWorld NY 2011 Keynote: Social Media Game Changers


Social media has become a critical driver of business in more than just the marketing and PR departments. Social media is changing the roles and rules for sales, customer service, product development, and more. BlogWorld’s attendees were lucky enough to hear from three thought leaders on this topic – Gary Vaynerchuk, Jeffrey Hayzlett, and H.P. Mallory. Here are some of the best quotes from the keynote:

Gary Vaynerchuk

“Why am I still writing books? Because people read them, asshole.”

“We are the dawn of one-on-one marketing.”

“The human stuff is always going to matter. What people don’t understand is the tech stuff is the human stuff…It’s a gateway drug…Twiter is speed.”

“Just because you have a Facebook and Twitter account doesn’t mean you’re using all the tools in the game.”

“Search.Twitter.com is the game.”

“Making mistakes has so much value.”

“Direct mail is even more dead than I thought. Like ding-dong….If you’re doing direct mailing…shit.”

“You can’t read about push ups. You gotta do ’em.”

Jeffrey Hayzlett

“They want to get it their way, and as authors we should give that” – on content formats

“I use my book as a business card.”

“What’s right for you and what’s right for someone else are two different things.”

“Twitter is kinda like my front porch. Facebook is like my living room.”

“Get out there and make as many fricking mistakes that you can.”

H.P. Mallory

“We’re definitely turning the publishing industry on its head.”

“I think about ways I can connect with my readers.”

“It’s really about making conversations, not selling.”
