Publisher's Summary

If this were 1923, this book would have been called "Why Radio Is Going to Change the Game" . . .

If it were 1995, it would be "Why Amazon Is Going to Take Over the Retailing World" . . .

The Thank You Economy is about something big, something greater than any single revolutionary platform. It isn't some abstract concept or wacky business strategy—it's real, and every one of us is doing business in it every day, whether we choose to recognize it or not. It's the way we communicate, the way we buy and sell, the way businesses and consumers interact online and offline. The Internet, where the Thank You Economy was born, has given consumers back their voice, and the tremendous power of their opinions via social media means that companies and brands have to compete on a whole different level than they used to.

Gone are the days when a blizzard of marketing dollars could be used to overwhelm the airwaves, shut out the competition, and grab customer awareness. Now customers' demands for authenticity, originality, creativity, honesty, and good intent have made it necessary for companies and brands to revert to a level of customer service rarely seen since our great-grandparents' day, when business owners often knew their customers personally, and gave them individual attention.

Here renowned entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk reveals how companies big and small can scale that kind of personal, one-on-one attention to their entire customer base, no matter how large, using the same social media platforms that carry consumer word of mouth.

    ""Crush It" is Better"
    What did you like best about The Thank You Economy? What did you like least?

    Gary is very good to listen to and certainly not a speaker you get bored of however this book seems to be essentially a repeat on the mantra of his first book "Crush It"


    Has The Thank You Economy turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Have you listened to any of Gary Vaynerchuk’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    "Crush It" is a better book and more inspirational.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Buy and read "Crush It" and leave this book on the shelf.

    "Fun listen and great information"
    What made the experience of listening to The Thank You Economy the most enjoyable?

    The book had good information on how to approach marketing on the internet. The one issue is that the book will be out of date in a few short years. The author even admits to it. Gary Vaynerchuk goes off script a few time but only to give an update to in the subject matter and a little added humor. Even if you are picking it up for the first time at it is a few years old, the principles and ideas are still important to pick up.

    "A Great Listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Thank You Economy to be better than the print version?

    YES! Gary is fun to listen to and his "added" comments are captivating and insightful.


    What does Gary Vaynerchuk bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Personal comments and sideline stories make the Audible version a great choice.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    As time passes the content will be stale. Listened to book flying back and forth from NYC and Gary kept me entertained and awake on some long 4 hour flights.

    Story
    "Thanks but no thanks"
    What did you like best about The Thank You Economy? What did you like least?

    Thought there was some useful stuff about being innovative. Had to work hard to keep listening because he kept going off script and telling us so. It was distracting.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have read it as written and provided updates/new references at the end of each chapter or end of the book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was very loud and over the top. Nonstop


    Was The Thank You Economy worth the listening time?

    Not really

    Story
    "This isn' what I thought it would be."
    Would you try another book from Gary Vaynerchuk and/or Gary Vaynerchuk?

    Probably not


    Would you ever listen to anything by Gary Vaynerchuk again?

    No


    Did Gary Vaynerchuk do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    there were no characters by the time I quit listening


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    It wasn't clear what this book really was when I bought it. I guess I was looking for a larger roof, a broader concept and it is really small, though accurate. I can hardly see how so little got to be so much.

    "Enlightening and Thoughtful"
    Would you listen to The Thank You Economy again? Why?

    It was recommended to me to read this book. I was finishing up my Masters Degree and time was limited. I cam to audible.com to see if this book was available, WOW and it was!!! I downloaded this and was up to date with the group discussion within a very short length of time. This book was written with up to date information. the narrator was entertaining. I learned a good bit. Mostly, this book was informative and enlightening. I have taken the information in the book and tried to be a better provider of customer service with the customer in mind. I have so tried being a better customer as well. I recommend this book because it will give you a new perspective.
