How to find YouTube affiliates with huge followings

How to find YouTube affiliates with huge followingsEver wondered how to find YouTube affiliate stars with huge followings?

Using Impactana, finding these profitable affiliate opportunities is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Like with all advertising opportunities, screening prospects is vital. Properly separating the good opportunities from the bad opportunities tends to be, however, a painstakingly laborious and manual task.

In this quick video tutorial, you’ll learn how to gather a list of YouTube affiliates ‘at the click of a button’, and how to then sort these affiliates by the success of their past promotions. Caught your interest? Let’s get started!


First of all, login to Impactana and in the search box, search quotes unboxing.




Firstly, I’m going to search for the weight loss niche using a special “intitle” search phrase. This will pull up all the pieces of content with "weight loss" in the web page title.

I'm going to filter these results to show only content uploaded in the past month to keep things by clicking on.

Next, click the Video tab. This will search for unboxing videos uploaded to YouTube. 

Now, I’m going to ensure these videos are recent by clicking Search Options and then changing the filter to show to only show videos from the Past Month

I’m also going to specify English speaking YouTube videos. 




Great. As you can see, we’re now presented with a list of over 3,600 different unboxing videos uploaded in the past month. 




So which videos, or more specifically, which YouTube channels have performed the best?

Let’s find out using Impactana’s proprietary buzz and impact indicators. To reiterate, buzz measures how well a piece of content is immediately received, while impact breaks down the level of long-term engagement with the piece.

By default, search results are weighted by both buzz and impact, giving you a great first look at top performing videos. 




Today, however, I want Impactana to show me videos with the most viewers taking real action. This is exactly what the impact indicator is for, which aggregates comments, links and other metrics highlighting true content engagement. Clickimpact to sort the videos using this indicator.  




Awesome.  Scrolling down the page, we can see popular unboxing videos in the last month, and their respective uploaders. 




Let’s take a closer look at this body scrubs, clothing and make-up video. 




To get a breakdown of the video's engagement metrics, I'm going to click its impact score. 




Over 350,000 views tells us that this YouTuber commands a large audience of viewers who like to watch cosmetics and fashion unboxing videos. Over 1000 comments also tells us that these viewers are highly engaged with this YouTuber's videos.  

If I were selling body scrubs, clothing, cosmetics, or a product to a similar demographic, I'd prefer to advertise to a highly engaged audience. Viewers that have engaged with a video by commenting on it are more likely to take further action to buy the plugged product. With such a high volume of views and comments, I’d definitely approach this YouTuber for immediate exposure with engaged viewers.

That’s it for this quick tutorial!
