The Collabary Newcomer Alert is a monthly series that aims to provide you with details about new talented content creators who have signed up to Collabary in the past month. We select 7 of these influencers based on multiple KPIs, like the number of followers or engagement rate, but also consider the quality of the content they post.

The newcomers have been highlighted not only to keep you up-to-date on who and what audiences are responding to but also to draw attention to and celebrate new talents on Collabary. As the influencer marketing industry develops at an ever-increasing rate, we are excited to share with you some of our talented creators.
