It’s not surprising that celebrities get paid a pretty penny to post advertisements on their Instagrams. But the amount celebrities charge is unbelievable. One Instagram post for them could be double or triple your yearly salary. Prices vary from celeb to celeb and there is more than just following that comes into play. Their Instagram engagement is a factor, that’s how much their fans like and comment on their posts.
Not shockingly Kylie Jenner tops the Instagram list of highest paid celebrities. The youngest Kardashian-Jenner has the top two most liked photos on Instagram ever. Her first photo of her daughter Stormi Webster grabbing her photo has over 18 million likes. it’s the first photo to ever achieve this.
Women’s Wear Daily reported on the list that Hopper HQ compiled of the highest paid celebrities on Instagram.
1. Kylie Jenner
Pay: $1 million
Followers: 111 million
To get on Jenner’s feed you better be ready to drop a cool million. Her social media alone made her a billionaire because it’s where she promotes her own makeup line Kylie Cosmetics. On top of being almost a billionaire, she has the top two most liked photos.
2. Selena Gomez
Followers: 139 million
Gomez is the most followed person on Instagram but the second-highest paid on the app. To get some promo love from Gomez you’ll have to fork over $800,000. She basically invented paid Instagram photos with her iconic and controversial Diet Coke photo. That photo was once the most most-liked image on the app.
Followers: 137 million
Ronaldo doesn’t play when it comes to Instagram. It’s going to cost a quarter of a million for a paid post on his feed. He has a loyal following that racks him in likes and cash. He has three photos in the top 10 most liked posts on Instagram, which is tied with Kylie Jenner.
Followers: 114 million
Kardashian comes in at number four on this list for $720,000 per paid post. The businesswoman has more followers than Kylie but gets paid more than a quarter million less than her for ads. It may have something to do with the fact that none of her photos are in the top 10 most liked posts.
Followers: 116 million
Beyonce doesn’t do paid ads often on her Instagram, but when she does it’s going to cost a pretty penny. Don’t expect the singer to post any ads for less than $700,000.

They’re here 🎧 Like you, my gym time is critical. It’s our time to shut the world out and anchor in. I prefer training in “over the ear” headphones, but have been consistently disappointed (pissed is a better word) with every pair, from every brand that just couldn’t handle my workouts. I thought if no one is going to design headphones BUILT FOR TRAINING, then I would. And I’d make them the best. Almost 2 years later, they’ve arrived.
