About Gary Vaynerchuk
Gary launched the retail website for The Wine Library (winelibrary.com) in 1997. While developing an audience for Wine Library TV (tv.winelibrary.com), Gary eschewed the traditional media tools. He had relied on when building the Wine Library retail store, turning instead to the social web. Gary joined the online conversation by becoming an active member of blogs and forums, and then proceeded to utilize web 2.0 tools such as Facebook and Twitter to connect with consumers online. The business world took note of Gary’s approach, and before long he was being invited to speak at conferences and corporations around the world.
Gary launched a second blog, garyvaynerchuk.com, where he dispenses business advice and comments on emerging technologies and cultural trends. As his following grew online, Gary became one of the first to reach Facebook’s friend limit and accumulated more than 900,000 followers on Twitter.
