Product Description

Product Description

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 works. 

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 tailor-made for Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Tumblr.

From the Back Cover

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.

When managers, marketers, and small business owners outline their social media strategies, they plan for the "right hook"—their next campaign that will produce profits. Even companies committed to "jabbing"—creating content for consumers and engaging with customers to build relationships—still desperately want to land the powerful, bruising swing that will knock out their opponents or their customers' resistance in one tooth-shattering, killer blow. Right hooks, after all, convert traffic to sales. They easily show results and return on investment. Except when they don't.

In the same passionate, streetwise style his readers have come to expect, Vaynerchuk is on a mission to strengthen marketers' right hooks by changing the way they fight to make their consumers happy, and ultimately to compete. Thanks to the massive change in and proliferation of 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; it's also about developing high-quality content that's perfectly adapted to specific social media platforms and mobile devices. It's about truly engaging with customers, not by shouting at them over social media but by using new narrative forms particular to each different media platform—especially, though not exclusively, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Tumblr. Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook is a blueprint to social media marketing strategies that really work.

By Sheilah HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Well all know that social media is the way of the future, and that advertising through social media is an absolute must. Every book that covers this topic offers a how-to for how to be successful, and some of them can be very boring. This book I quite liked because it isn't a manual, of a step by step, but rather it teaches us to how make stories in social media to draw in consumer's attention.

The book is written in an easy and light-hearted style, making it engaging and interesting.

I have never read any other material by this author, but after this I do intend to pick them up.

Should you buy? yes.

@GaryVee has done it again but this time gone way beyond. In his first two books Crush It and The Thank You Economy he told us how important it was to 'give' before we ask. Good manners you might think, but in a busy, noisy, non-stop social media driven world we forget and he does not want us to.

A give to Gary, using the analogy of this latest book, is a Jab. Now in #JJJRH he tells us the importance of the right types of Jabs for the various platforms - what he calls going native. And then the equal importance of the Ask - the Right Hook - being equally suited to the medium and the audience.

But the real value of this book is his 80+ real life examples of small and very large businesses who get it and those that do not.

Regardless of whether you are looking after a huge Fortune 500 brand, run your own small business or are looking to manage your own personal brand you cannot ignore what this book has to say. I will guarantee you will get an aha in the first three chapters - I got mine in the first three pages and I have been in this space and reading him for years!

Just my toonies worth.

I can't say the author is wrong in his points. However, the book has many issues. Most importantly, the lessons are trivial: "A great marketing story is one that sells stuff." or "You know that the buyers of that purse are generally twenty-five-year-old females. Does it make sense to send that content about a purse to your fifty-five-year-old male customers who primarily come to you for belts? Of course not.". Most of the book is just blurring the line between insights and common sense. Another time he goes saying Twix made a big mistake not putting their logo on a picture, on the other hand it may not really be a big mistake, since the bars are easily recognizable... It sounds more like improvised comments made on the fly than an intellectual accomplishment. Finally, and least importantly, I find the author terribly annoying. The book is peppered with lines like "Even I screw up sometimes!" which are hardly excusable in the context.
