Anytime Gary Vay-ner-chuk speaks I listen. I love this guy, for real how can you not? But I’m not going to talk more about him. Gary makes a great point about small businesses and HOW they are missing the point.

He’s been saying this all along but it seems like people still don’t get social media. My message to them is LISTEN to this post.

Sorry to be so obvious, but no really, go watch this post. If you haven’t used twitter or don’t get it, you might learn a thing or two from Gary.
