Reasons to Hire a YouTube Influencer
Influencers are taking over the social media world, so you may be wondering how these people can help your brand grow.
Here are some reasons you may want to hire a YouTube influencer…
Increase Your Reach
While making sure your website is SEO-optimized is a great first start, this organic route will take a few years before you notice any true growth in your audience.
If you want more people to hear about your brand quickly, you’ll want to start advertising. With so many people following influencers on YouTube, investing in influencer marketing is a great start. Many influencers have thousands, even millions, of followers, so them demonstrating and shouting out your product will attract more attention quickly!
When an influencer builds up a large following, many of their followers have a certain level of trust and loyalty with the influencer.
Their audience sees them as a trustworthy source for information and recommendations. So, if the influencer is recommending your product, their audience will assume that the product is a good investment.
Also, many viewers that follow an influencer want to be just like the influencer. So, if they’re saying a certain moisturizer, clothing brand, or hair product is one that they use, followers will invest in the product in hopes of looking like the influencer.

How to Begin YouTube Influencer Marketing
If you’re ready to invest in the top YouTube influencers, you’ll need to contact them through an agency.
If you’re new to paying for marketing from YouTube influencers, you may think it’s okay to reach out to them on social media such as Twitter and Instagram. Since an influencer’s reputation is at stake, they’ll likely ignore pitches that aren’t given to their agency to review first.
If you’re willing to work with influencers with a bit of a smaller following, they probably won’t have an agency for you to go through. So, you can contact them less formally.
This is a great option for smaller brands with a smaller budget!
