Nash Grier turned Internet & digital entertainment into mainstream media. With almost 30 million followers, he has amassed a following bigger than most countries.
The 20-year-old digital influencer started his journey to worldwide notoriety by creating videos on the popular social media network Vine. From there, he has amassed a huge following on additional social media channels including YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat.
After moving to LA he found himself educating even major brands on the benefits of digital/Internet marketing versus traditional TV commercials or print ads. Soon he was bombarded with endorsements and began doing content deals with companies including
Nordstrom, Virgin Mobile, MTV, Amazon, M&Ms, Aquafina, Old Spice, and many more. He started a clothing brand aside from his fan merch called UnitedXXVI, which did millions in retail sales for Aeropostale. The clothing deal landed Nash on his first Time Square billboard in 2015, and since has graced another on behalf of Awesomeness TV and NASDAQ in 2016.
Since Nash has become mainstream, he has been a guest on Good Morning America and The View multiple times and has been named one of TIME Magazine’s 30 Most Influential People on the Internet in 2014 & 2015. He was also named one of TIME Magazine’s most influential teens. Grier was later invited to the White House Correspondents dinner by Arianna Huffington after being named and featured in HuffPost as the most popular kid in the world. Speaking to his worldwide fame, Nash was nominated for “Choice Web Star: Comedy” at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards, “Favorite Social Media Star” at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards, and “Choice Web Star: Male” at the 2016 Teen Choice Awards – awards that didn’t exist when his career began.
In 2015, Nash starred in his first film The Outfield, which jumped to #1 on the iTunes Drama chart in 15 countries only two days after its release, beating out the highly anticipated Jurassic World. In spring of 2016 he wrapped filming on the thriller film “You Get Me” starring opposite Bella Thorne. Nash is drawn to the innovative story telling of video and film, as evidenced by the fact that he writes, directs, and edits every video he makes on social media. Nash has proven his production skills on a larger scale as well, directing a music video for the artist Bera, which now has more than 3 million views on Nash’s YouTube channel.
In addition to film and video, Nash is currently writing a book and has a partnership with Awesomeness TV to promote his massive YouTube channel following. He is also signed with STATE Management for both domestic and foreign campaigns. In both 2017 and 2018, Nash walked in the Dolce & Gabbana fashion show in Milan in the #DGMillenials Campaign, as well as the Dolce & Gabbana Men’s 2019 Spring/Summer Campaign in 2018. He created his “Nash Grier” app which skyrocketed to 6.3 million views within its first week and took over 78% of total traffic across all apps, eclipsing the Star Wars app on the day of the launch. He also has his own emojis for Apple and Android, dubbed “NashMoji”. Nash uses his voice for good, bringing attention to causes he is passionate about, including climate change and global warming and encourages his generation to be more environmentally responsible.
What makes Nash different from any other young talent? – his drive to succeed, his knowledge of this unique space, and the close relationship he has with his fans. Nash understands and appreciates that his fans helped create him, so his supporters see his journey as their journey. He is accessible to his fans and only promotes brands/companies he believes in, which builds trust with his fan base. One time in Iceland, a single tweet about Nash’s whereabouts brought 5,000 girls to a shopping center in search of him. The mayor of Reykjavik [Iceland] was quoted saying they’d never seen that before, “even when The Beatles came 30 years ago.”
