While most of us are happy just to get double digit likes on our Instagram photos, there are a few lucky people out there who make ridiculous amounts of money for being social media influencers (aka posting images on social media that endorse products).
According to measurement company D’Marie Analytics, the top six influencers on Instagram are:
- Selena Gomez
- Kendall Jenner
- Kylie Jenner
- Beyoncé Knowles
- Taylor Swift
A few months back, the company revealed that Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid could earn between $125,000 to $300,000 per social media post they make.
New information released however suggests that Kendall and Gigi’s paydays pale in comparison to Selena Gomez’s, with Gomez reportedly earning up to $550,000 per photo that she posts across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
While this figure seems excessive, with 180.6 million devoted followers who will basically do whatever Gomez tells them to do, it’s not hard to image why brands are paying big bucks for a spot on the star’s social media accounts.
Not a bad payday I say.
