4 Influencers Trending On YouTube And How They Got There
Having a trending video on YouTube is the goal of every Youtuber. There are 50 spots on the trending list. So how do YouTube influencers make it on that list?
Here are 4 YouTubers who have taken some of those spots:
1. Sofie Dossi
In this video, Sofie Dossi and her brother Zach do follower tweeted dares. These dares included: drinking toilet water, climbing on a structure in their backyard and twerking, and fitting into a suitcase on a shelf in Target.
This video appeals to viewers because of the fun intro and bold dares. The two siblings act JUST like a typical brother and sister. The title and thumbnail is also very clickable.
How does she fit into that suitcase?!
Sofie Dossi got her start on Youtube after she made her debut on television as a finalist on America’s Got Talent. She appeared on the show as an aerialist and hand balancer.
Dossi capitalized on her striking talent of contortion to make a name for herself on Youtube and television.
However, it is not just her talent that made her so famous, it is also her relatable and goofy personality that shines through in her videos!
2. Shay Mitchell
Everyone LOVES a pregnancy announcement. These moments are soft and intimate, and incredibly vulnerable.
This YouTube video is a little different because of the intro. Shay opens with talking about how long she has hidden the pregnancy until she felt ready and also the loneliness of being pregnant. Discussing these fears is a vulnerable appeal because so rarely do people talk about it. Especially influencers.
The video feels authentic and she ends it with an exciting announcement of how she’s making a new series about her pregnancy called “Almost Ready.”
3. Nikkie Tutorials
Nikkie Tutorials has been around for a while, but this YouTube video made it to trending because of two reasons:
- People love makeup tutorials
- The opening dare
Nikkie posted this video because she was tweeted that she couldn’t do a “no makeup makeup glam look”.
SPOILER ALERT: she is able to create the look and gives great tips on how to achieve it.
Nikkie became famous in 2015 when she posted a YouTube video called “The Power of Makeup.” This video inspired people to show their faces with and without makeup and feel confident either way!
Nikkie inspires her viewers to love themselves. As a transgender woman, Nikkie has become an inspiration to the LGBTQ+ community to love and be open with who they are!
4. Jenna Marbles
This video is full of laughing cries and fails. Jenna opens this strange video talking about her friend who had a profound thought “what if you had corn on the cob, but instead if the corn bone, it was a hotdog?”.
Thus this video was created for YouTube. Through various attempts, fails, and good laughs, Jenna does end up with some kind of final product. Even if it wasn’t the full vision.
The video appeals to viewers because of its humor and frankly ridiculousness.
Marbles is so famous because of her ridiculousness! She fully values herself and isn’t afraid to be who she is. Because of that, her viewers are also inspired to embrace their inner goofball.
What all of these YouTube influencers do is appeal to emotion. Whether it is being grossed out or uncontrollable laughter, these YouTube influencers get a response out of their audience and find ways to connect with their audience.
There are many reactions you can make your audience feel, which will you choose?
