QOTD response: Tough question! My knee jerk response is 50/50, just because I intend to generate a lot of content, while in my business, I have to be constantly consuming, too, to stay abreast of the constant changes. The more I think about it, the more difficult it is to give a solid answer. I guess I'll stick with 50/50.
Now if you had asked about jab vs. right hook, my answer would have been a pretty easy 95/5. I'm a soft marketer... I concentrate on building credibility and let clients come to me. Yeah, I know - I'd be a shit salesman - I found that out years ago. But luckily, I'm a kick-ass closer. So I let the sales come from credibility, referrals, return clients and the odd stroke of serendipity. Hell, even a blind squirrel can stumble across an occasional acorn, right?
I finally managed to get to your #meerkat
broadcast of this episode before finding the door slammed in my face - another bit of serendipity. Watching it on a desktop kinda redefines suck, 'cause I get a lot more out of the video than I do from straight audio. Reminded me of watching one of the early panoramic movies on a small screen. But being a diehard dinosaur, I still don't plan to buy a smartphone, as the only use it would get would be connecting with you without pestering my daughter to loan me her phone.
You keep pushing us to up our game, +Gary Vaynerchuk
