The gaming industry is growing by leaps and bounds every day. If you always thought that video games were children’s play, think again. Worldwide, there are video game competitions held every year involving big sponsors and incredible prize money.
This industry is known as electronic sports or esports. Some of the best esports influencers are casual players who’ve managed to connect with large audiences. YouTube is the preferred platform for popular gamers to upload their gameplay streams and commentary. Twitch is another leading social media platform for gamers and esports athletes.
How we Rank these eSport Influencers
Subscribers, views, and comments can now be manipulated. At Crowdcreate, we use a proprietary ranking formula based on these factors.
1.) Peer scoring. We ask the experts and run surveys asking other influencers, founders, and investors who ranks at the top of their list.
2.) Quality Content. How good is the content that these influencers are creating?
3.) Subscriber Growth Rate. A faster growing following shows more influence. The number of subscribers isn’t as how fast an influencer is growing.
4.) Community Engagement. Our propriety formula includes metrics such as average view counts, organic mentions from other platforms and channels, and audience retention.
5.) Comments. An engaged following that posts genuine comments that aren’t generated by bots or spam is how to spot a good influencer.
