GARY VAYNERCHUK
Over the years, I’ve heard one question 
more than any other: 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
“WHAT’S THE ROI OF 
SOCIAL MEDIA?” 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
And I always have to laugh, because the 
answer is the same... 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
Allow me to explain: 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
a PIANO? 
What’s the ROI of... 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
For me? 
About $26.50, but 
that’s mainly people 
paying me to 
STOP.
For Elton John? 
About $400 million.

playing VIDEOGAMES? 
What’s the ROI of... 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
I used to bet on 
games of Madden 
in college... 
so like $50?
For Lee Jae Dong, 
about half a million in 
prize money alone. 
That doesn’t even 
count endorsements, 
or his team salary...
a YOUTUBE CHANNEL? 
What’s the ROI of... 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
Ok, I actually did 
pretty well here 
since my views 
can convert to 
booksales/new 
clients. But check 
this out... 34,73...

While we’re talking about YouTube... 
. . . . . . 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
playing with DISNEY TOYS? 
What’s the ROI of... 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
For me? I dunno, 
maybe I could eBay 
them for a few 
bucks...
For the creator of the 
DisneyCollector 
YouTube Channel, 
playing with toys has 
grossed over 
$5 million in 
YouTube ad ...
a CAMERA? 
What’s the ROI of... 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
For me? 
Literally nothing. 
Like absolutely 
positively zero 
dollars.
Annie Leibovitz, 
on the other hand, 
is rumored to have 
a $100,000+ day 
rate, and has used 
cameras to amass a 
$20 mil...
SPRAYPAINT? 
What’s the ROI of... 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
Meanwhile, a 
Banksy canvas is 
worth something like 
$32,000.

CAT PHOTOS? 
What’s the ROI of... 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
For me? Probably 
some lols in 
response to my 
next email.
For Ben Huh, they 
created the 
multi-million dollar 
Cheezeburger 
empire.

So let’s come back to my original point. 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
“WHAT’S THE ROI OF 
SOCIAL MEDIA?” 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
Well if you’re willing to invest the time... 
and the effort... 
and learn the platforms... 
and you have a natural talent...
Maybe you can 
score a book deal.
Or maybe you can 
help your clients 
achieve their 
business results. 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
...and grow your 
agency to 400 
people.
Because ROI is never about the tool. 
GARY VAYNERCHUK
ROI is about the 
MECHANIC 
using the tool.
