Exclusive Video Interview: Gary Vaynerchuk

October 1st, 2009 by Rebecca Harper Editor

In five years, wine enthusiast (and die-hard Jets fan) Gary Vaynerchuk has transformed his family’s liquor store into a booming online business worth $60 million. How’d he do it? The answer is passion, according to his new book, Crush It!, a how-to guide full of techniques for turning passion into a full-fledged career.

In this exclusive video interview with U.S. News & World Report’s Rick Newman, Vaynerchuk provides the key to monetizing content, whether it’s video, audio or blogging. (Vaynerchuk’s Wine Library TV series, The Thunder Show, is available on Hulu.) The secret, the 33-year-old says, is to engage his audience through sites like Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook.

You can learn more about Vaynerchuk’s Crush It!, in stores Oct. 13, at crushitbook.com.

    I can’t wait to get the book in my hands, come on Oct. 14!

  • I’m all for exclusive interviews, but I hate that I can’t view anything on Hulu in Australia.

    I realise that some Australian television networks that offer TV show viewing online block Internet users outside Australia, and I hate that too.

    I’d say one reason I’m moving to America is just to be able to watch Hulu. Australia always gets the short end of the stick.

    I can’t wait for the day when the world can share everything with the world. That + world peace will be a good day!

    I have to say that I never get tired of Gary V. I’m so glad he’s out there sharing and adding value to people like me.

    What did I hear on this interview that I haven’t already heard him say before??? Nothing. However, What did he reiterrate????

    Do Twitter searches for your topic, passion, business, etc…
    Emotiinal Connection with your followers
    NO SELLING!!!!

    I love, love ,love to hear his “lessons” over and over again because I always grasp something new.

    I can’t wait to see him in Jacksonville, FL at Lessconf on October 17th!
