When managers and marketers outline their social media strategies, they often plan for the right hook-their next highly anticipated sale or campaign that's going to put the competition out for the count. Even companies committed to jabbing-patiently engaging with customers to build the relationships so crucial to successful social media campaigns-still yearn to land the powerful, bruising swing that will knock out their opponent or their customer's resistance in one tooth-spritzing, killer blow. Right hooks, after all, convert traffic to sales. They easily show results and ROI. Except when they don't. In the same passionate, street-wise style readers have come to expect, Gary Vaynerchuk is on a mission to improve marketers' right hooks by changing the way they fight to make their customers happy, and ultimately to compete. Thanks to the massive change and proliferation in social media platforms in the last four years, the winning combination of jabs and right hooks is different now. Communication is still key, but context matters more than ever. It's not just about developing high-quality content, but developing high-quality content perfectly adapted to specific social media platforms and mobile devices-content tailor-made for Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Tumblr. A mash-up of the best elements of Crush It! and The Thank You Economy with a 2013 spin, here is a blueprint to social media marketing strategies that really works.

Die Thank You Economy ist ein auf dem Internet basierendes Phanomen unserer Zeit. Es beeinflusst nicht nur, was und wann wir kaufen. Es beeinflusst auch, wie Unternehmen und Kaufer miteinander umgehen - und zwar zum Vorteil des Kunden. Im Web wird die Forderung des Kunden nach Authentizitat und Ehrlichkeit immer wichtiger fur die Unternehmen - vergleichbar mit den Tagen unserer Grovater, wo der personliche Kontakt zum Kunden uber Erfolg und Misserfolg eines Unternehmens entschied.Web-2.0-Guru Gary Vaynerchuk enthullt in seinem neuen Buch, wie Unternehmen diese personliche Beziehung zum Kunden herstellen konnen, indem sie soziale Netzwerke nutzen. "e;Die Thank You Economy"e; belegt, dass wir in ein vollig neues Geschaftszeitalter eintreten. Ein Zeitalter, in dem nicht die Firmen das meiste Geld machen, die die teuersten Marketing-Kampagnen fahren, sondern jene, die den Beweis abliefern, dass ihnen der Kunde mehr als alles andere am Herzen liegt. Denn nur die Unternehmen und Marken, die sich die unglaubliche Schlagkraft des kommunizierten Wortes aus den sozialen Plattformen zunutze machen, werden sich von der Masse unterscheiden und im Markt von morgen durchstarten.

Dick Costolo, chief executive officer, TwitterGary Vaynerchuk, the New York Times bestselling author and creator of Wine Library TV, is back with a bold and expansive look at the evolution of today's marketplace, revealing the essential factors defining and driving successful relationships between businesses and consumers. In this groundbreaking follow-up to the bestselling Crush It!, Vaynerchukone of Bloomberg Businessweeks 20 People Every Entrepreneur Should Followlooks beyond a numbers-based analysis to explore the value of social interactions in building our economy.
The Thank You Economy isn't some abstract concept or wacky business strategy. It's the way we buy and sell, the way we're interacting as consumers, as employees, as entrepreneurs on all levels, right now. The way our marketplace functions has been evolving right before our eyes. Top-down, one-way exchanges are gone, replaced by relationships based on open, honest, and constant communication between customers and business. Today, individuals and brands that out-care and out-love their competition - those emphasising quality, value, responsiveness, and attention to detail, among other essentials - see the biggest returns. Gary Vaynerchuk contends that the people and companies harnessing the word-of-mouth power provided by multiplatform media - those that can shift their outlook and operations to be more customer-aware and fan-friendly - will pull away from the pack and profit in today's markets. In The Thank You Economy , he dissects the companies on the leading edge, showing how they are succeeding - and sometimes failing. Laying out the ideas and insight that support this enormous change, Vaynerchuk explores these emerging connections - from consumer to consumer and business to business and everything in between. Passionate and persuasive, he reminds us that, surviving and thriving today it takes more than just hard work-it takes a heartfelt thanks to those who make it possible.
