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.


NEWS FLASH: Gamers are no longer watching TV or going to retail, and 40% of gamers use ad-blocking tools.   

                                        


It is therefore extremely difficult to access gamers with traditional and digital marketing campaigns.

Fear not, influencer marketing holds the key to these issues. Why? Because gamers are using YouTube and Twitch as their primary media platforms and frequently look to gaming influencers for top tips, with 90% of gamers using YouTube weekly.

As a result, gamer influencers are becoming an integral part of any meaningful video-game-marketing campaign because of their huge subscribership by engaged audiences. After all, 64% of gamers download games after seeing them on YouTube. With esports on the rise and the competitive market of mobile games, having an influencer on board is becoming a necessity when marketing gaming products.

So, let’s see which gamer influencers are on the rise this month:

1. Curtis Morton
