Instrumental finds talent that drives sales. We use our TalentAI technology to identify fast growing online creators and influencers that offer high returns to our media clients and brand partners.


At the start of 2017, eager New Year's resolutioners are keen to part with the pounds – in more ways than one. This presents a huge opportunity for health-and-fitness brands, and partnering with YouTube's influencers can give them the extra edge.

Instrumental tracks the fastest growing content creators and this month we monitored UK-based channels, all with between 10,000 and 350,000 subscribers, who’ve enjoyed high % subscriber growth. Influencers of this size generally have high audience engagement rates, leading to greater return on investment.

The December Top Ten Influencers share their killer workout tips, meal plans and lifestyle recommendations.
