My name is Joseph Gagliese, I recall vividly as a young person that I had the entrepreneurial bug. I was constantly coming up with ideas for the next big thing and my family was frequently and reluctantly called upon to test market “things”.  With little trepidation I decided not to seek treatment for the entrepreneurial bug and have accepted its influence on me. Today I am very proud to be the President of Viral Nation Inc.. We are a global social media influencer agency and marketing company. The world of social media advertising has for a lack of a better term, “blown up” and is making its way into the mainstream of marketing. My partner and I correctly anticipated this evolution or revolution to be more dramatic. Since our start just a short few years ago, we have become the largest social media influencer agency America and one of the largest globally. We are and have been working with large brands such as Microsoft, Scotiabank, Crayola and successfully launched initiatives to promote their products and services, and increase awareness through social media influencers and content. We have also worked with organizations such as the Pan Am Games to foster interest and awareness for their event. The audiences of social media influencers, both individually and collectively, are vast and their audiences have a need to consume their unique content. We find ourselves in the power seat within this burgeoning industry and created a direct channel for brands that allows their target audience to be reached at a fraction of the cost of traditional marketing AND is MUCH more effective.   Viral Nation had solidified our position as a key player in the social media marketing industry and we aspire to keep growing. We want to keep teaching and showing brands how they can maximize their dollars in a meaningful way. Influencer marketing is a unique space and people are realizing the value and the effect it can have if done the right way. It's our grand vision to give influencer
