#141 - Adam Teeter talks about VinePair Visions

Adam founded VinePair with Josh with one simple goal: create a publication he actually wanted to read in a space he was extremely passionate about. Since founding the publication, Adam has become recognized as an authority on how to make the drinks world accessible to everyone as well as on the ever-evolving media landscape. He is the winner of the Left Bank Bordeaux Cup American Wine-Tasting Championship and holds an MBA from NYU Stern.

In this episode of the Be Real Show, Adam and Travis open up the show discussing Adam’s company VinePair and the things that keep him motivated to be the best. Then, the two talk about trends in the alcohol industry, how hotels can outdo Airbnb, and why Vegas is the best. Adam sees VinePair as the ultimate influencer, so they don’t explore influencer marketing because it is mostly smoke and mirrors. Later, Adam reveals how VinePair makes most of their money from ad dollars and sponsored content. Lastly, Travis gives Adam some quickfire questions including where he wants to travel, how he starts his day, who he would take to dinner, and his favorite app.
