Gary started his new show, the #AskGaryVee Show, in July of 2014 after a three year hiatus from Youtube shows. It became a hit from the start.
Every episode reaches hundreds of thousands of people across multiple channels.
With just 20 minutes of his time a few times per week, he creates dozens of pieces of content across many platforms with the help of a team. This model is a powerful model that other content creators can learn from and use.
Here’s how the model works:
Step #1: Solicit Questions On Twitter And Instagram Via The #AskGaryVee Hashtag
Engaging on these platforms with his fans helps him:
- Build one-on-one relationships with the people he answers questions from.
- Build his reputation with fans as someone who is responsive.
- Gives him a funnel for all the people who want his time to ask questions.
Step #2: Answer Them On His #AskGaryVee Show On Youtube
The shows are generally 10-20 minutes long. They started with one camera angle, but they’re up to two. Gary is so good at being spontaneous that they only do one shoot. Having one shoot GREATLY reduces the editing time.
