Being an influencer is a unique job field that can take a lot of time to make money from, but how much exactly do the biggest influencers really make? Instagram influencers are often talked about and well known across the platform through their presence, and there are many celebrities that have taken their own popularity there. How much do the most popular Instagram celebrities make? Well, here’s a bit about the top paid Instagram celebrity influencers.
Better known as “The Rock”, Dwayne Johnson has had a sweeping career across mainstream wrestling, many acting gigs, charitable acts, Instagram presence, and much more. He recently took over the top spot on this platform hitting 187 million followers on Instagram. According to some sources, Dwayne was able to ask for at least $1 million per sponsored post during the last year due to his outreach.
The well-known football player Cristiano Ronaldo made it on the same list of top celebrity influencers on Instagram in 2019. His estimated sponsored post income was around $889 thousand worth per post, which is quite the chunk of cash for a simple photo and sponsorship deal. Of course, it’s only estimated of a value because of how hard it can be to find values of posts from brands or influencers.
Jenner has a following to reckon with and her own business built up, her follower count stands up to at least 185 million. Kylie can most likely make a lot out of sponsorship deals when needed, but also makes plenty of money through her following via sales. The estimated earnings for her sponsored posts are around $986 thousand per post, but the sales through her business also add to this income quite a lot.
Kim Kardashian West
Similarly to Christiano Ronaldo’s earnings, Kim was estimated to be able to ask around $858 thousand per sponsored post in 2019. Her following is based off of many areas of her established fame, which leads to her heavy following on Instagram and therefore heavy income abilities through the platform. Kim has other forms of income outside of her sponsorship deals through Instagram, but earning over $800k per sponsored post is definitely a hefty addition.
Pop sensation and early on actress Ariana Grande has an outreach on Instagram of 190 million plus followers, which puts her high up on this list as well. While she makes money from her music business, Ariana can ask an estimated $853k per sponsored post through Instagram as well. This girl has so much going for her in her standing across multiple social media platforms and her career as a whole is quite large.
Some more noteworthy mentions in the list of top paid Instagram celebrities in 2019 include Selena Gomez at $848 thousand per post, Beyonce at $770k per sponsored post, and Taylor Swift at $720 thousand per post. The list can go on for a long time, but these are some of the highest paid influencers on the app according to a list made in 2019 with the best estimates that can be made (since brands are quite hushed about their actual payouts for posts).
While this list is higher up than many traditional influencers may make, due to the fact that celebrities are able to draw on a wide audience from their other works and acts, it gives you an idea of the possibilities for Instagram pay as well as how their income works. Learning more about celebrity income sources can be incredibly interesting for those that are intrigued by finance and business ideas, and this information can prove to be good knowledge in other ways.
