10 kid influencers killing it on YouTube
It’s fairly common knowledge that YouTube is somewhere you can find all different types of content for all different types of audiences, and a place you can spend hours and hours watching videos which cater to your likes and interests. Every day it gives us more and more innovative content creators offering videos on sports, beauty, reading matter, cooking, and everything in between.
For some time now, one of YouTube’s most popular types of content has been kid-themed, and kid influencers are making a big name for themselves on the platform.
Children are resorting more and more to screens as their main form of entertainment, watching hours of videos on their favourite Youtube channels and now, more than ever, is a great time to take advantage of this.
With Kid-Themed YouTube channels receiving almost three times as many visits as other types of content, we at Influencity wanted to rank the top Kid Influencers – these little content creators with a gift for captivating audiences and gaining huge followings.
The rise in influencer marketing has meant that teens and even small children have their own YouTube, Instagram and TikTok accounts with followings which rival those of even the best influencers in the industry. You could say these YouTubers are ushering in the dawn of a new type of advertising.
Brands are also realising the potential of these young influencers and are allocating larger portions of their budgets on influencer marketing using kid YouTubers, and a new generation of under-13 influencers have become the focus of advertisement investment for many toy brands and children’s products. You could go as far to say that YouTube is unsurpassed as the youth marketing social network.
