One of the places where editorial content and data meet most dramatically is on websites about weather. With decades of historical data about weather from millions of places across the globe, sites such as wxshift.com can tell us more than just the weather. As the company puts it, WXshift delivers "Your forecast, with climate context."

The team behind this website hopes that you will go there in order to get your standard weather forecast-but stay to understand more about our changing climate and how it is impacting your area's weather.

But as more and more YouTubers become stars-and business moguls-in their own right, it can be hard for brands to reach the right ones. Enter: Reelio.

Brands sign up for Reelio, fill out a questionnaire about what kinds of influencers they are looking for, and then wait as pitches roll in from YouTube creators. You get to choose the best pitches and then track your campaign's success.
