Loofbourrow noted, "ViralGains has the potential to define the nature of viral marketing on mobile devices and the Internet.  They change the nature of advertising on the web from a passive experience to an inherently social one, redefining the experience of media for the Mobile, Social Age.  Their combination of proprietary technology, deep understanding of the nature of social media advertising, and an incredible startup team has drawn me to join the board of this transformative company."

Fay noted, "Brands now recognize that native video content is often more effective than traditional video advertising in achieving branding and social sharing goals. ViralGains offers a scaled solution to distribute this content cost effectively. I am excited to join a team that is delivering a new form of marketing advantage that can fit into existing buying processes. It is no surprise to me how quickly this business is growing."
