Influencer Marketing








Influencer Marketing

The video game industry continues to surge in growth with an estimate of over three billion gamers worldwide by 2023. With this knowledge, it’s no surprise that gaming influencers have taken over live streaming platforms like YouTube, Twitch, Facebook Gaming, and more. Gaming influencers build communities with their followers around a common interest that is interactive, engaging, and easy to watch.

In such a competitive and exciting industry, The Influence Agency understands the power behind securing trusted partnerships between brands and famous gamers, and ultimately, the execution of even more powerful digital marketing campaigns. Our passion for this mission is reflected in our work. We continuously strive to deliver results and build better brand awareness that exceeds campaign expectations.

Gaming Influencer Marketing with Results

Gaming influencers, both macro and micro, are unique in that they can offer brands a vast reach through their consumer-focused strategies. They gain their loyal audiences through walkthroughs, commentary, reaction videos and live streaming games like Fortnite and Apex Legends. They’re also regarded as trusted sources when it comes to game-related reviews and news. Some famous gamers, such as Ninja, are known for their eSports expertise.

Although gaming influencers can be categorized into “content creators” and “gaming professionals” it’s important to note that gaming influencers continue to transcend the game they play and even the “gaming” category as a whole; an example of this is when Ninja was featured as the first non-athlete on the cover of ESPN The Magazine.

Businesses looking to utilize gaming influencers’ celebrity-like status within their communities and followers will gain access to large-scale Gen Z and Millennial audiences that trust and value the sentiment behind each individual’s personal brand.

How Gaming Influencers Can Benefit Your Business

Gaming can be anything from simple mobile games to immersive multiplayer experiences, just looking at the evolution of gaming consoles is proof enough that the gaming industry has grown exponentially over the past few decades. One of the largest growth drivers in the gaming industry was due to the ongoing pandemic, with more first-time gamers finding ways to spend their time with lockdown measures in place.

The trend towards interactive – and often social – entertainment is more common in younger generations that have grown up online, playing video games. Even before COVID-19, around 40% of Millennials and Gen Z said playing video games was in their top three favourite entertainment activities. Famous gamers have the ability to reach Gen Z and Millennial audiences through a natural integration with those that are interested in gaming via the platforms they use, like Twitch and TikTok. In the U.S. alone, Twitch is expected to reach 47 million active viewers by 2023 with viewers tuning in at least once per month.

The upward trend in game usage is paired with the economic growth of the global games market as it is forecasted to generate revenues of $217.9 billion in 2023, resulting in a +9.4% year-over-year growth.

Brands can no longer ignore these numbers and trends. In order to compete in a modern market, you need to efficiently and effectively reach your target audiences through gaming influencer marketing campaigns.
