Context Is Key

Context Is Key

by Gary Vaynerchuk


Today, everyone deals with content and puts out their own content. Competition is bigger than ever. Thirty years ago, there were only 13 channels on cable, about 40 relevant magazines, and 300 million people in America. The population has only slightly grown, but the number of people exhibiting content is incomparably higher. Now we have to be great to be noticed.

The author of this course, Gary Vaynerchuk, is the CEO of VaynerMedia, a social media agency in New York. He is an expert in and lover of social media, with a strong belief that here lies the future of sales.

This course displays the main differences between Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, and Twitter, teaching us that there is a context for every content. Vaynerchuk looks at how you can make a business successful through social media and analyzes how content is displayed on different social networks.

If you didn't know how to tell a good story back in the day, sat around campfires, and you stayed mute, you didn't win respect. You didn't get to tell that story. That is now happening in the digital world - on social networks, mobile devices, and across all sorts of digital platforms.
