Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook
New York Times bestselling author and social media expert Gary
Vaynerchuk shares hard-won advice on how to connect with customers
and beat the competition. A mash-up of the best elements of Crush It!
and The Thank You Economy with a fresh spin, Jab, Jab, Jab, Right
Hook is a blueprint to social media marketing strategies that really
When managers and marketers outline their social media strategies,
they plan for the “right hook”—their next sale or campaign that’s going
to knock out the competition. Even companies committed to jabbing—
patiently engaging with customers to build the relationships crucial to
successful social media campaigns—want to land the punch that will
take down their opponent or their customer’s resistance in one blow.
Right hooks convert traffic to sales and easily show results. Except
when they don’t.
Thanks to massive change and proliferation in social media platforms,
the winning combination of jabs and right hooks is different now.
Vaynerchuk shows that while communication is still key, 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 tailormade for Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Tumblr.
Marketers spend millions on:
