#AskGaryVee Episode 83: The Role of Blogging Today, Parenting in a Social Media World, & Sasquatch

#QOTD: Are you so competitive that losing a meaningful basketball game in the morning completely alters the happiness in your day?

0:49 – What is the future of blogging in all this "rented" social media space?
2:23 – What're your thoughts on creating a successful, long term Social Media Strategy for yourself or your clients? What are the metrics you measure to make sure it's working? How long in advance do you create the content you rollout?
5:49 – I'm speaking to parents at a public school event on parenting in a social media world. What would you teach them?
7:20 – We are in a "nonexistent" market (watch rental/sharing) but the sharing economy is growing. What would you do to determine/come up with a market size?
9:56 – My investor wants to change the name of my company's brand Sasquatch Fuel. We do backpacking meals and want to be as disruptive as possible in this vertical. Anything but generic like the competition. Should I change the name?

In 2003, 2004, and 2005, it was very commonplace to use the internet to drive someone to your home. As in, "Come here to consume me." "Visit me here." Now what we are seeing more is "I'm over here. If you want to know what's up, you better learn how to speak to me here."

What's happened is that the attention graph (my biggest priority right now) is shifting. People's willingness to jump somewhere to consume is certainly not down. The truth is, social networks, specifically Twitter and Facebook and Pinterest are really gateway drug pieces of content to drive to the aforementioned "home": a blog. An e-commerce site. Your download page for your app.

What's changed is people understand that they need a great skill and a great storytelling tactic to share with their social networks. They understand that they need to be that first impression to catch people's attention.

    Hey gary. In the beginning I would be slightly annoyed. But after the game I would pick up my pace and continue to progress at work. Yours… chris

    Gary must have a friend that lost the basketball game he snapchatted this morning at 6 am! 🙂

    The thought of losing at a competitive game would linger through out my day but wouldn’t necessarily alter my happiness

    QOTD: ABSOLUTELY! I am that competitive. I want to win everytime hands down and because of that drive I usually do win pickup games. I’m not there to lose and if I do that game is on my mind for the rest of the day. Great show love it Gary you’re the man.

    QOTD : I usually don’t go home after a lost pick up game until somebody else plays my team and we win. I hate losing pick up games. That’s how competitive. So i really don’t know if it would mess up my whole day. Great Show again Gary

    This episode seemed very down. I think the devastation of the morning B-ball game affects you AskGaryVee-ball game.

    Re QOTD: brutally honest, yes. Maybe not the rest of my whole day, but I’d let it “get to me” because I dig the things that sometimes come out of being down sometimes. It’s taken me about the last decade to realize that losing and being in a stink can sometimes equal new, good ideas.

    Thanks for the show Gary.

    Really liked the answer about parents as you proceeded to tear them apart. I wish I had a personal Gary V to do that for me all the time.

    And hell yeah losing a basketball game can put you in a shitty mood for the day. The more passionate and competitive you are the more pissed a person be. Aka Kobe or MJ.

    1. Nina Culo Post author

      +Alex Sandalis Actually great champions are not PISSED AT ALL for long. They’re pissed for 1 hour. Then they go back to WORK HARDER. But people (like you or you’re just influenced by others) think they’re angry or pissed. While they’re just more FOCUS.

    QOTD: Nope~ But would alter my happiness of the day would be waking up to no coffee in the house. 🙂 Have a great weekend!

  10. Ivan Widjaya Post author

    Yes. A loss in a game impacts my mood.  In basketball (I love basketball), in video games (seriously!) – I will keep thinking about the loss, with the what-if’s, with what I could do better to change the outcome.  I will put up a smiling face, but deep down, I’m annoyed, big time.

    Scared of the beard, Gary.  It’s almost as scary as James Harden!

  11. Radical Vehicle Designs Post author

    ABSOLUTELY…! I’m so competitive I will “UNLEASH THE NEMESIS” if I have too…

  12. Omar D Louali Post author

    If I’m up 10-4 and end up losing, I’m pissed until the rematch! Spot on with the parenting/social media statement.

  13. Alejandro Torun Post author

    Losing any sport game is irrelevant for me: not a big sports guy. Losing in business like a client or an account would definitely drag me down. I medidate most every day and part of my meditation is being thankful. When you think about things to be thankful for you realize your loss, most losses, are irrelevant. Thanks Gary!

  14. Matt Shorty Wells Post author

    Question of the day: Nope, I don’t think so. 

    I like the conversation about blogging and “being good at the bar”
    Great way to illustrate the point.

    #QOTD No way would I let a basketball loss affect my day. Leave it on the court, Gary! Just like you say you don’t let your work day affect your home life. I think you mentioned that when you go home, you don’t feel it’s fair to bring your work frustrations to your family. Maybe it’s not fair to bring your basketball mood to your work?

    I agree, the name with Sasquatch in it is a much better name.

    Thanks for doing the show, Gary!

    my answer is NO BUT it is rough in my house ANYTIME the AZ teams lose! Shout out to my hubby!
