Are you looking for UK tech influencers to shoutout for your tech products to the UK market and audience? We’ve collected the top 10 UK tech YouTube influencers who are experts on tech reviews, unboxing, and news.

Why hire influencers for your business? Why you should include influencer marketing to the marketing plan? Here are some top benefits of working with influencers:

  1. Reach to your target audience. You should spend the budget on the right influencers who can bring the most results. Before contacting, check the audience demographics data of the influencers you want to collaborate with. The basic audience demographics data includes gender, geo-location, age, and interests. If it is a good match for your target audience, hooray! You can easily reach your target customers through that influencer.
  2. Grow your brand awareness in a non-pushy way. The endorsement of top influencers gives credit to your new brands or products. People will get familiar with your brand and products scrolling their social media feeds. All the exposure of your products has an impact on the purchase decision-making by customers.
  3. Drive organic traffic and contribute to your SEO. Influencers create great content that will help boost your SEO. Especially for YouTube videos, with the right title, they jump up on the top of the Google search result page of your product. You will be impressed by the organic traffic brought by these content created by influencers.
  4. The value of micro-influencers has been under-estimated. Micro-influencers are especially suitable for location-based marketing campaigns, and products in a niche topic/industry. Micro-influencers cost less budget to hire, sometimes you can even do product exchange for their content. But if you want to reach a large group of audience, you will have to get at least a couple of micro-influencers.

Let’s start with this top chart of UK influencers in the tech world, to find the right influencers for your brands or clients. They all post tech-related videos but have various topics. Some YouTubers focus on smartphone unboxing and review, while some focus on DIYs and innovations.
