Nash Grier turned Internet & digital entertainment into mainstream media. With over 26M followers and 32 billion views across platforms, and just published in 2019, a new self-titled book, Nash, he has amassed a following bigger than most countries.
The 22-year-old digital influencer’s rise to worldwide fame began by creating videos and amassing a huge following on all social media channels including YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat.
After moving to L.A., Nash 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 Tommy Hilfiger, Neutrogena, Mudd, Amazon, Nordstrom, Virgin Mobile, MTV, M&Ms, Aquafina, Old Spice, and many more. In addition to his own fan merchandise, Nash started a clothing brand in collaboration with Aeropostale called UnitedXXVI, which did millions in retail sales. The clothing deal landed Nash on his first Time Square billboard in 2015, and he has since graced another on behalf of Awesomeness TV and Nasdaq in 2016.
In addition to film and video, Nash is signed with Elite Paris Management for both domestic and foreign modeling campaigns. In both 2017 and 2018, Nash walked in the Dolce & Gabbana Fashion show in Milan in the #DGMillenials campaign. In May of 2018, Nash was on the cover of Lumiere Magazine and featured inside with a full-length interview. Nash has also had the opportunity to model in photo shoots with MOOD, MUDD, Guess, and Gucci among others.
Nash has been a guest on Good Morning America and The View multiple times and was 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. Arianna Huffington invited Grier to the White House Correspondents Dinner after he was featured in HuffPost as “the most popular kid in the world.” Regarding his worldwide fame, Nash has been nominated for the following: “Favorite Social Media Star” – 2016 & 2017 People’s Choice Awards; “Choice Web Star: Male” – 2016 Teen Choice Awards; “Choice Web Star: Comedy” – 2015 Teen Choice Awards.
What makes Nash different from any other young talent is 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 fans to a shopping center in search of him. The mayor of Reykjavik was quoted saying they’d never seen that before, “even when The Beatles came 30 years ago.”
