Celebrities That Get The Most Pay For Each Sponsored Instagram Post

It turns out that the social networking app, Instagram, known to a lot of people as a mobile application for sharing photos and videos goes beyond an ordinary social media app. It appears that it isn’t just for posting those cute selfies and getting likes. It has now become a platform for advertising in which different brands seek out the influence of top celebrities to help in the promotion of their products. Of course, that doesn’t come for free. Instagram now serves as a platform where influencers, brands and also celebrities get to generate more income.

Finance Buzz, a website that offers financial tips as well as free advice has reported that there are brands that pay between $5 and $10 for every thousand followers when paying for sponsored posts. There are also some brands that pay as much as $100 for every 100 followers or just pay for the advertisement by giving freebies. For instance, if a person has 500,000 followers, the person can charge between $2,000 to $3,000 for each post whenever they endorse any product or brand to their followers.

The statistics for 2018 revealed that beyond having several followers on Instagram, the person is expected to continue posting and also to maintain a considerable level of interactions. Thus, the Instagrammer has to keep building an audience and at the same time working on strengthening the personal image or brand as that is what attracts other companies or brands to collaborate.

In 2017, Kylie came fourth on the list of those who are Instagram Rich, but she has managed to top that list, performing better than her sisters Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian.

It is important to note that the list doesn’t only include those celebrities in the entertainment industry as there are popular soccer players such as Cristiano Ronaldo who got the third place, also Neymar Jr. who got the right spot and Lionel Messi who was at the ninth spot.
