Kylie Jenner is the highest earning Instagram celebrity, according to Instagram analytics tool HopperHQ.com.
‘The world’s only fully-automated Instagram scheduling tool’ has released its second annual 2018 Instagram Rich List – placing Kylie at the top.
The makeup mogul and reality television superstar earns a reported average of $1 million per post, beating Selena Gomez and Cristiano Ronaldo who earn $800,000 and $750,000 average per post respectively.
This is in spite of the fact that both Selena and Cristiano have more Instagram followers than Kylie. Kylie currently has 111 million followers while Selena has 139 million and Cristiano has 136 million followers.
Kylie also beats her elder half-sister Kim Kardashian, who placing at 4, earns an average of $720,000 per post.
Mike Bandar, co-founder of HopperHQ.com said of Kylie’s Instagram success:
“I’m not surprised that Kylie Jenner has topped this year’s list, as far as social media marketing goes, she has it down to a tee. Kylie was introduced to the public through her family’s reality show, but she has forged her own billion-dollar career and harnessed the power of Instagram to build a global, loyal, engaged following that brands are willing to pay top dollar for!”
Kylie recently grabbed headlines for her Forbes magazine cover. The August edition claims Kylie is set to become the ‘youngest-ever self-made billionaire’.
She currently has a net worth estimate of over $900 million thanks to her lucrative television deals and booming cosmetics brand Kylie Cosmetics by Kylie Jenner.
The HopperHQ.com findings also include the highest earning Instagram influencers of 2018. Atop the list is American beauty blogger and makeup artist Huda Kattan. Currently boasting 26 million followers, Huda gets paid a reported $33,000 per Instagram post.
