Never underestimate the power of social media and the influencers on these platforms. Speaking of Instagram specifically, most influencers have chosen Instagram to be the main platform for their content.
Be it a celebrity or regular citizen, what you show in the virtual world via Instagram as an influencer indeed has a huge influence in the real world. A single post or action can either make an individual or an organization reach the height of success or decline at an unimaginable rate.
Now, this can be explained well with what Cristiano Ronaldo did during a pre-match press conference. The world’s renowned athlete moved two bottles of Coca-Cola out of the sight and preferred water over it. His little action caused the soft-drink giant a massive loss of $4 billion.
The megastar is definitely not ignorant of his power and influence weight on social media and hence profits from it as well in several ways. He even shares sponsored post on his Instagram account that reaches to his 300 million followers and others as well.
As the infographic shows, Ronaldo is the wealthiest Instagram influencer and earns nearly $1.60 million for a single sponsored post he shares. Followed by Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock at the second with $1.52 million per sponsored post on Instagram.
According to the chart, various influencers are making millions of money every time by sharing sponsored posts. Ariana Grande, Jenner sisters; Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner, Lionel Messi, Justin Bieber, etc. All of these celebrities are highly paid influencers on Instagram who are paid above a million dollars for sharing a single sponsored post.
