How we Select the Right YouTube Influencers
Micro YouTube Influencers
Micro Influencers are content creators with a smaller audience yet highly engaged audience. Due to their size and close connection to their audience, they are perceived as relatable, genuine and trustworthy — all of which leads to positive results for brand partners.
Micro Influencers are perfect for niche as well as mainstream brands who want to connect with their target market in a meaningful and impactful way.
Macro YouTube Influencers
Like Micro Influencers, there are also great benefits to working with Macro YouTube Influencers like extensive reach, and a broad as well as loyal audience.
Macro influencers also bring a higher level of professionalism and greater opportunities for viral content to brand partnerships.
Branded Content with YouTube Influencers
Full Feature or Let’s Play
A full feature or ‘Let’s Play’ in the case of a game, is a video format dedicated to a single product or game. These videos can be scripted or off the cuff and are always made to provide in-depth insight in an interesting and entertaining way.
An integration is somewhat similar to a pre-roll, although as the name implies, it is a promotion naturally integrated into the influencer’s content. An integration typically lasts around 60 to 90 seconds.
As the name suggests, a product placement is an advertising format where influencers use the brand’s product in a natural or overt context; i.e. drinking a sports drink after working out and speaking about the drink and why they choose to drink it.
Pre-roll YouTube placements are a brief yet effective way to reach a YouTuber’s audience. Typically lasting around 60-seconds, these advertisements quickly introduce viewers to a brand or game, its’ top features and closes with a compelling call to action.
