Social networks have made celebrities and other random people accrue relatively large followings and this has made them attractive to advertisers. If a celebrity endorses an advertiser’s product on their social networking page, it can be seen by millions of people and in turn, it leads to a huge paycheck for the said celebrity after the post is sent.

Instagram is one of the most popular social networks we have currently and it has over 700 million users as per the last announcement. Celebrities over there have accounts have tens of millions of users and in other cases, hundreds of millions, which can be quite lucrative to advertisers.

HopperHQ was curious to know which celebrities on Instagram made the most buck through sponsored posts and the list is not surprising at all.

“Based on internal HopperHQ data and public information, we have compiled this ‘Instagram’s Rich List’ that will make your jaw drop,” they said in a blog post.

The top 10 list has celebrities from the music industry, modelling industry, athletes and also reality TV stars (the Kardashian clan basically).

Topping the list is the singer Selena Gomez with an astounding $550,000 per post and it is not surprising since she has the most followers on Instagam with 123 million followers. Here is the rest of the list of how much these people make in a single sponsored post.

  • Kim Kardashian – $500,000
