Where do the Kardashians fall on the Instagram Rich List?


Of course, the Kardashians will rank high on the brand new Instagram Rich List, but just where does the famous family fall? 

Normal people use Instagram to post pictures of their family, their food, and even their pets. The Kardashians have never been normal and, like many celebrities, they are cashing in on social media with sponsored Instagram posts being one of the most lucrative ways to cash in.

While Selena Gomez takes the top spot as the most influential and highest paid celebrity on Instagram, the Kardashian sisters are not far behind. As a matter of fact, every single Kardashian sister ranks on the Instagram Rich List right after Selena. After the Kardashians come a few other familiar names like Cristiano Ronaldo, Cara Delavigne, Gigi Hadid and LeBron James.

The Instagram Rich List ranks the top 20 social media influencers on the platform. The list was compiled by Hopper HQ, an Instagram scheduling site, using their own data plus public information such as follower count and social media activity. Their list is broken down into two parts, one being celebrities and the other being social influencers.

As for how celebrities and social influencers make money on Instagram, Hopper HQ co-founder Mike Bandar explains:

"“Instagram is now an incredibly effective marketing tool for brands and it’s fascinating to see how celebrities and influencers are able to monetise their accounts to so effectively. With approximately 700 million active monthly users across the world, it offers a wealth of potential customers for brands that have the budget to harness the influence of the people on our lists, and a chance for people to make a real career out of ‘gramming’.
