Founder & CEO, Wonghaus Ventures, Fifthtee
Previously: Dir. of Marketing @ Vent
Top Tumblr Blog 2015, Shorty Award Nominee 2015
Hello there, my name is Jason Wong and I'm a digital marketing consultant and owner of a few media and eCommerce companies. I specialize in viral content creation, influencer marketing, social media marketing strategy (Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram) and business development. Startups reach out to me for my Gen-Z perspective and background in new-media marketing to tackle their problems. I have experience in working with authors, tech startups, consumer products, and fashion.
Before venturing into business, I began as a social media influencer in 2013 and accumulated over a million followers on different platforms, predominately Tumblr. Through my time as an influencer, I was able to closely observe the users on each platform and study their interest and behavior. I’m interested in creating an emotional response from my advertisements, which is a factor that is deeper than the typical metric of user engagement. I enjoy being creative while developing social media strategies and content that would resonate with the intended audience, to make them feel connected to the content that they are exposed to.

I’m currently the founder of Fifthtee, an apparel brand that pledges a fifth of its proceeds to the Best Friends Animal Society, which provides sheltered animals with housing and medical care. I also founded Wonghaus Media, a digital marketing agency that specializes in developing viral contents and strategy for brands and products. I lead and direct Wonghaus's eCommerce division, which specializes in high-viral products.
In December 2016, I developed and launched the product "Holy Meme Bible", which earned over a $250,000 a little after a month of its launch. After the success of the Meme Bible, I organized a team called Dank Tank, focused on researching Internet memes and developing new products related to Internet memes.
I’m an expert at marketing on the Tumblr platform, consulting companies that generated high 6-figures in monthly revenue through my marketing strategies. My clients range from startups such as Gfycat, and Vent, to University professors and former executives of Fortune 500 companies. I worked with a number of brands to promote their products to an audience that was typically difficult to reach with other platforms.
I am fascinated by the constant changing climate of marketing on new media. In particular, I enjoy the ability to be creative in developing fun advertisements with high viral potentials and working in an environment that encourages me to be unconventional.

Professionally, I'm passionate about development, growth, and sustainability - including growth strategy, branding, sales & marketing, product development, and user experience.
Personally, I'm inspired by meeting new people, traveling, continuous learning, public service, and establishing valuable relationships with everyone that I work with.
I consult small and medium-size startups.
Startups reach out to me for my Gen-Z perspective and experience to tackle their audience's problems. Others work with me for my extensive background in social media (Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram) as well as my understanding of the Chinese market. I am fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien, and English. My network of knowledge and connections in China, coupled with my communication abilities, allows me to help businesses reach the world's largest market that many others had failed to reach.
My engagements involves speaking at youth entrepreneurship events to conducting one-on-one strategy planning for social media marketing campaigns. Recent examples include speaking at SAGE Canada about the ideas behind marketing Phoneblok, an eco-friendly cell phone, as well as leading the marketing campaign for the Vent Social Network, which ranked in the top 100 apps for the Social Networking category and had an average of 13k installs per day under my management. My expertise is in helping companies understand their audience by providing my insight on consumer behavior on different social media platform and developing strategies to engage with them through various forms of digital content.
