Gaming influencers are gaining traction nowadays as video games have become more popular. They reach a targeted audience for tech product features and reviews, and these are great for the gift-giving season. Unsurprisingly, Instagram is still the dominant platform for influencer marketing. Still, brands looking to engage gaming influencers might want to consider tapping on the other streaming platforms with larger gaming communities such as YouTube, or even Twitch on which eSports fanatics congregate.
