Instagram has stopped being just about selfies and sharing photos of your food a long time ago. It’s a full-on business platform now. People use it as galleries for the products they’re selling, there are Instagram stores, and lot’s of influencers do sponsored posts. Companies have caught on and now they’re ready to pay the big bucks for sponsored posts from people with massive followings. And while you might think influencers getting a couple of hundred bucks to promote some makeup is the best you can do – wait till you hear about how much celebrities get paid per Instagram posts. Here’s a little spoiler – it’s hundreds of thousands of dollars. To find out exactly how much they get paid – keep reading.
1. Kendall Jenner
Kendall started out like all of her sisters on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but since then she’s become a model that has walked the most prestigious catwalks for famous brands and fashion houses and she’s been on the covers of Vogue, Seventeen, Mary Claire and other fashion magazines. She’s also accumulated 113 million followers on her Instagram. So now she gets $500 000 per sponsored post on Instagram. Yup, half a million dollars to post a pic, what a life, am I right?
2. Lionel Messi
You probably don’t think of football players as influencers who do sponsored posts on Instagram, but that’s where you’re wrong. Lionel Messi, the Argentinian footballer, has millions of fans and 125 million followers on Instagram. It’s quite a big audience and he knows how to use it to his advantage. And if you can’t think of what could he possibly promote – well duh, sports equipment, trainers, men’s accessories like watches, etc. And he gets paid just as much as Kendall per post – $500 000.
3. Justin Bieber
Justing Bieber has gone down a weird path and seems like a whole different person these days, far from the baby faced adorable kid we all remember. But hey, he’s still a famous celebrity and he’s got his die-hard fans. He also has 115 million followers on Instagram, and that means he’s a popular choice for sponsored posts. Even though you might think he’s past his prime now, he still gets more per post than we can dream of, $650 000 to be exact.
4. Dwayne Johnson
The Rock is absolutely legendary. He’s got such a diverse audience and fan base. Some love him from his wrestling years, others love his action movies, some of us prefer his comedic side and there are people who follow him just for his charming personality and kickass workouts. But with 149 million followers on Instagram, he gets $650 000 per post, just like Justin.
Beyonce’s got 129 million followers on Instagram. But let’s be real, Beyonce doesn’t need to do sponsored posts on Instagram. She’s doing fine without it. So she doesn’t really do sponsored posts, instead, she just posts glorious pictures of her best looks, and sometimes outfits that suggest her future collaborations with brands. But if she were to do a sponsored post – she’d get $700 000 for it.
6. Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian clearly knows what she’s doing when it comes to social media. She has 144 million followers on Instagram, which is literally more than Beyonce. She’s a social media pro and it shows. It seems like everything she mentioned becomes insanely popular and that’s the reason she charges $720 000 per post on Instagram. And while some of her choices are questionable – you know, it’s easy money.
7. Cristiano Ronaldo
Another athlete on the list and it’s another football player. What can we say, football really is one of the most popular sports in the world. Cristiano Ronaldo is apparently the most followed person on Instagram and has 175 million followers. And while he’s doing great at his job, he’s also doing amazing when it comes to sponsorships on Instaпкфь. He gets sponsored by the biggest sports brands and he charges $750 000 per post.
8. Kylie Jenner
Kylie was always the youngest one on the Kardashian reality TV show, and we barely paid attention to her then. But these days she’s a legend, a mother, a self-made businesswoman, a billionaire and social media pro. She’s got 140 million followers on Instagram, and while it’s not like she needs the money being a billionaire and having a successful business and all that, she still charges $1 million per post if you want her to sponsor your products.
