Best YouTube Influencer Marketing Agency
What is YouTube?
This is a question that I probably don't even have to answer considering that YouTube is the most visited website in the world as of 2020, but for those of you that must have been living under a rock for the past decade plus, I will indulge you
YouTube is by far the most popular video-sharting website on the net.
You can find almost anything that you can imagine when it comes to videos on YouTube.
Whether you need to look up a tutorial on how to change the blades on a specific model lawn mower, you need help getting through a difficult level on a video game, you want to learn how to play a specific song on the guitar, and everything in between, you can almost certainly find it on YouTube.
YouTube was founded back in 2005 and has gradually grown into the most popular website in terms of total traffic, and it even gets more traffic than the Google search engine which blew my mind.
Google actually purchased YouTube in 2006 for a staggering $1.65 billion dollars, but it is now estimate to be worth an even more staggering $90 billion dollars!
Lots of people have YouTube channels from individuals to brands and products.
YouTube creators that get a lot of views can monetize their channel by displaying ads before or during their videos.
This has become a very lucrative business for many different people around the globe.
As I said before, YouTube is the number one website in the world in terms of the amount of traffic it receives, making it the most popular between all social media channels, including Facebook.

What is Influencer Marketing?
There are many different marketing strategies out there in 2020, especially with the meteoric rise of the internet.
Influencer marketing is one of the newer strategies out there today that still isn't widely used by many marketing agencies, and since it isn't fully saturated yet there can be some very good ROIs with influencer marketing.
Influencer marketing is basically a collaboration between a brand, business, or individual and the person known as the 'influencer.'
The influencer is the person behind the social media account that typically has a large following, or is known as an expert in their particular industry or niche.
Every influencer marketing campaign is different and each campaign has a specific goal in mind. Many influencer campaigns are created to help a company sell a product or service or possibly introduce a new product into the market.
Other influencer marketing campaigns may be started to increase the online awareness of a brand or business.
Changing how a brand or business is seen by the public is another common goal of influencer campaigns.
Sometimes a brand or individual may create an influencer marketing campaign solely to increase their online following or brand awareness.
There are many other reasons someone may want to start an influencer campaign, but making money is typically the short-term or long-term goal when it comes to any type of marketing campaign.
With influencer marketing the influencers post your product or service to their engaged audience to try to influence them into buying your product or trying out your service.
Since the influencer did all of the hard work in gaining their following, it is highly recommended to let them take the reigns when it comes to the influencer marketing strategy in which they will use to introduce your product/service/brand to their following.
They know their following better than anyone and therefore likely know how to 'influence' them much better than you would.
The followers of influencers typically trust influencers when it comes to their opinions on products, companies, and trends which is why influencer marketing can be so effective.
Your overall goal with an influencer marketing campaign, along with your target audience, and marketing budget will determine what type of influencer you should use for the campaign.
What is YouTube Influencer Marketing?
This is simply an influencer marketing campaign that is created using an influencer on the YouTube platform.
There could be many reasons why someone would specifically want to use an influencer on YouTube including demographics, the overall popularity of the site, or possibly the perceived neccessity of introducing one's product or service through video content.
While YouTube is filled with influencers, it can also be one of the most difficult social media platforms to find influencers that are willing to work with you.
With Facebook or Instagram you can directly send messages to influencers, and while this isn't neccessarily an effective way or finding an influencer to work with, at least it is a possibility.
WIth YouTube, the only similar way one could reach out to a content creator would be through commenting on their videos.
The problem with this is the fact that popular channels receive hundreds if not thousands of comments on each video per day, and the content creator likely doesn't take the time to read each and every one of their comments.
Even if they did happen to read your comment trying to reach out for collaboration, the chance for a reply is highly unlikely.
