In 2017, then-16-year-old Emma Chamberlain decided to start a YouTube channel during her summer break with the help of her dad (who also started his own channel).
Since then, she has become one of the most recognizable faces on social media, with more than 8 million subscribers on YouTube, and a large following across Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter. With the help of her parents, agent, and publicist, Chamberlain has built a lucrative business around being the internet's favorite relatable teen.
For interviews and events, Chamberlain is represented by Metro Public Relations, an agency that works with many top creators across YouTube and Instagram, along with a variety of other brands and publishers.
Recently, Metro worked to place Chamberlain on the January cover of Cosmopolitan and assisted its client David Dobrik (a popular YouTube creator with 15 million subscribers) with landing a spot on Jimmy Fallon's late-night talk show.
But Metro isn't the only PR agency making waves in the influencer space.
Business Insider is launching a new power list of the top PR agents and publicists in the influencer and creator business. These industry leaders assist the top creators across YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, and other platforms.

We want to hear from you on which agents are indispensable to their social-media influencer clients, who respond quickly to news events, help clients jump on social trends, and stand out for how they manage clients' crises.
