Jaw-Dropping: Find Out How Much Selena Gomez, Beyoncé, Kylie Jenner Make Off of a Single Instagram Post

Social media pays, y'all.

Published July 20, 2016

Selena Gomez recently made news by having the most-liked single photo on Instagram with an astonishing 4.6 million likes and counting. The photo, which doubled as a Coca-Cola ad, proved that the new frontier of advertisement exists on social media.

While celebrity endorsements have existed for decades, the amount that celebs like Gomez, Beyoncé and Kylie Jenner are getting for simply posting pictures is truly astounding. 

It is being reported that stars with massive followings garner huge checks from posts like these, some as high as $550,000. 

D'Maire Analytics told Adweek that the huge value is the "ad-equivalent" for a post that goes up across all major social media platforms. Interestingly, the sheer number of followers is not the major factor when it comes to where stars rank on the list. D'Marie's ranking system takes into account variables such as post frequency, their follower's engagement and potential for sales.

when your lyrics are on the bottle 😛

With Gomez in the top spot as highest social media earner, the names behind her are just as big. Kendall Jenner takes second, her younger sister Kylie claims third, Rihanna holds down the fourth spot and Queen Bey herself rounds out the top five. Together, these ladies are bringing in millions of dollars per year for nothing more than posting on social media.

Just another reason stars have it better than us.
